She encourages us to tell you a little about ourselves, so in a nutshell, I am recently retired, live in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia with my retired hubby, have quilted for over 30 years, and am still struggling to find out who I am in the quilting world. One day I'm quilting along making civil war blocks, the next I'm making a wonky house quilt. One day I am hand quilting, and the next I am forging ahead with machine quilting. I haven't done any FMQ yet...I'm a scaredy cat! I started blogging in September of 2011 and have enjoyed it immensely. I love to read, write, and quilt, so a quilt blog is a perfect fit for me!
I love the blog hops coordinated by Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt and her wonderful hosts. Being a participant or hopping along has been an awesome journey! And I really enjoy participating in BOM, BOW, and QALs. You'll see some of my favorites in my sidebar. Make sure you check out the Country Charmer Quiltalong that I am hosting along with designer Lynn at Sew'n Wild Oaks. It's never too late to join this one and on Friday we'll show you our progress to date.
I especially love making Schnibbles quilts designed by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosies Quilt Company. I participated in Another Year of Schnibbles (AYOS) last year coordinated by Sinta of the Pink Pincushion and Sherri at A Quilting Life. On Friday, they will have a parade of our favorites that we made during AYOS. For me, it was an easy decision...my favorite is my ISTH quilt (aka I'm So Totally Happy quilt). A quick pic from the living room taken moments ago...
