I started quilting 6 years ago when I retired. I spent most of my adult life working and raising a family in northern NJ. Then I retired a large lake in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA. I love this area of the country and never tire of looking at the mountains and my lake. I travel frequently to visit my children and grandchildren. My son, his wife and 2 children live in Guam. My daughter, her husband and her daughter live in Colorado.
