Thank you Delilah for inviting me into your home.

I would love to tell you about something I do to relax that I just love. I’m a very domestic person. Gardening by the age of five. My father taught me how to make pepper steak at ten. I worked on farms, literally. I slaughtered chickens, hogs etc.

I picked up a love for fabric sewing with my mother. Unbelievably, my hubby gave me a sewing machine as a wedding present. A used “White” for those that sew. I knew I had the right man. Then after our first child was born, I started making baby clothes and pillows and then… the crib blanket.

Any one having a baby I started picking out fabric squares.  I wish I’d taken more pictures through the years, but I did it for fun. Then a gentleman I worked with complained he couldn’t find a heavy blanket like the one’s his mother used when he was a boy. He asked if I could make one and I fell in love all over again.

Only pictures of the recent one’s are on the computer. The other’s are in photo albums.


The one with the baby is my daughter and hubby. She’s eighteen now.

The purple quilt I made for my youngest’s purple and green party. Kids wore purple, teenage helpers wore green.


Now my latest project will be to make the cover of my fantasy book into a quilt and give it away during my release for book II in a month or so.

Now you know the country girl in me.

Thank you for allowing me to share a bit of what I do other than write, with your readers.
