Marlene, from STITCHIN BY THE LAKE
has invited me to share a little bit
about myself during
"I Want to Get to Know You".
So here goes,
I'm a wife of 15+ years to my #1 guy,
we have 2 fantastic boys together,
I am step mom to #1's first born which is a bit comical (I'm 49 my stepson is 37),
I'm Grams to 2 gorgeous grandchildren,
I'm a foster mom to 2 kiddos too.
Before wearing all these hats, I thoroughly enjoyed the creativity offered to me through goldsmithing.
I began my apprenticeship with my Father, a journeyman himself, at 16 when I left high school.
The tools of my trade.
I am going back into this field later this year, all plans falling into place.
Obviously, I love sewing and quilting has become a passion over the past
few years. I made my very first quilt 30 years ago and then had a super long hiatus,
I'm talking about a 20 year hiatus. When my oldest was born 11 years ago, I
attempted to sew a couple of quilts without any clue as to what I was doing!
It has only been the last 5 years that I have managed to sew more quilts and learn so
much by way of the internet and the scores of amazing blogs out there.
I have recently been part of the blog hop world and I am involved with a
Doll Quilt Swap that has been loads of fun.
I also enjoy
reading murder mysteries,
watching murder mysteries,
the styles of the the 1920s and 30s,
almost every type of music out there!
Thank you, Marlene, for allowing me to share in the chatter over the fence today.
Thank you to those that pop in for a visit, I hope you drop back often.
