Good Morning! I've always been crafty...up until recently it's been mostly crocheting. Started quilting about two years about...YES, in fact 2 years ago Labor Day I took my first official class.

I must admit that it feels as if I purchase more fabric than I'm actually creating but it's been a blast so far!

I try to participate in two local guilds - the Phx Modern Quilt Guild as well as attending my first Nimble Thimbles meeting tonight!

I'm a recent "empty-nester", and was a single parent for most of the last 20 years, I remarried 7 years ago and my husband and I have two Austrailian Shepherd dogs. My daughter just celebrated her first wedding anniversary and is a post partum nurse, my son just turned 22 and is studying to be a EMT/Paramedic.
