I recently began quilting, within the last 3 years. Before that I sewed clothes. I recently retired and with my husband of 42 years, we moved to the foothills of Northern California to a beautiful Log Home. We have 11 chickens as pets. There is much to do in this 4,000 sq. foot home and dirt all around us. We are getting ready for winter. I try to sew as much as I can.
