Quilting is my passion. The ability to be creative with colorful fabric just makes me smile. Of course, equally joyful is the love of my grandchildren. What could be better?
Food for thought.
Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Needed some motivation.....
I needed a kick start this weekend. I have been such a slug. It must be the cold weather and wanting to come home from work and just hibernate. Well, I got a bunch of motivation from friends and it got me going on finishing my third block for "Beyond the Cherry Trees Album Quilt".
Now I just need to get to the fourth block that I have uploaded and get it started and finished as the fifth block will be posted (or should be) by the 10th of this month. I have been putting off doing the fourth block as there are a lot of tight curves and I just know they are going to give me some problems, but I will do it. Also, unless I can figure out how to do it, there will be no red in this block and I really love my reds, so this block may be a little boring for me. Oh well, we'll see.....and hopefully we will see soon.
I am known as Mimi by my four grandsons. They are 13, 10, 8 and 3 1/2 years old. They are what life is all about. I recently retired from my office job. Now I am just loving being a grandma who loves to quilt and is once again dabbling in knitting, I am a longarmer and an APQS retailer. I can see retirement being very busy!
