Welcome to my first page! To explain a little bit about me
I am a wife, mom and grandma. My family is my life! Even though they are grown and on their own, I pray for them daily , for God to watch over them for me. Since I am no longer responsible for the day to day responsibilities of raising them, I now have time to pursue my interests and hobbies.
I sew – a lot! I can honestly say I do not always enjoy the sewing process but I love the outcome. The items I like to sew the most are curtains and quilts. I use to sew clothes but have found I would rather know that they would fit me nicely so now purchase my clothes. However, my hubby still prefers to wear long sleeve shirts I have sewn. I have an embroidery machine and sewing items with embroidery is my enjoyment.
I also knit and crochet. I prefer crochet as knitting takes so long and my tension does not always stay perfect. I also do card stamping. I am new to this and am still learning.
I love to garden, not always the weeding part later in the summer, but I love to have flowers blooming all summer. I prefer perennials as once they are planted they are there for years to come. Some of my favorites are lupine, lilies, hosta, iris and roses! I also like flowering shrubs and trees, especially lilacs and flowering crab trees.
I read a lot! My favorite genre is christian fiction. Of that I enjoy historical, and suspense.
The reason I am starting this page is because of encouragement to share my quilt patterns I have made that originals and to share my reviews of the books I read and enjoy.
I hope you enjoy my page and invite your friends to follow me as well.
