I'm Ann, ConnieF's friend. We have been sewing sisters for almost 30 years .. she is the pro, I am the amateur.
I am the listener, she is the teacher. We are both "retired" now .. so we have time to quilt and sew (when the fellas are not demanding something.) .. I have grandkids too that like to come and visit or need me to "buy" them something .. they have given up on "training or teaching" me to play Wii games with them, too technically difficult for an old brain.
We have 4 grandkids .. 3 Rockheads and 1 brand new Sweetpea. Life is interesting in our "twilight" years.
We live in the NW .. where there is lots of rain, with full gutters most days.
