    Smile Hello from Alabama

    I'm Vera. I've been sewing for 40 years and quilting about 30. I have 3 grown children. My oldest son and his oldest son ( my 3rd grandchild) were killed in a car accident Aug 30, 2010. I have fewer bad days now but occasionally I still have really bad days. I have 14 grandchildren. I have been teaching several of them to quilt and sew. We have to do it in concentrated burst since they live in three different states. DH and I are going to Alaska next month as a celebration of our 40th anniversary which was in Feb.

    I also knit, crochet, cross stitch and love to read. I listen to books on tape when I am sewing or quilting. I'm part of a sewing ministry in my church. When mainly make quilts for nursing homes and the VA home.

    I've been reading here for a couple of months and enjoy this board.
