I am a retired dental hygienist, housewife, and avid quilter. I am a volunteer grief counselor for my church and am a member of the quilting ministry. I take my elderly mother around as I do also my neighbors children. My husband has always loved my quilting. He is my idea man and can always think of ways to do what you want to do. My mother-in-law taught me how to quilt when I was 20yrs old. I am now 60 and I hope a good bit better at it.
