Washington State

I've been crafting most of my life. I've been sewing since my teen years and quilting for about 15 years. My other hobby's are reading, watercolor painting and computing. My husband of 50 years and I live with our 2 long haired dachshunds. I have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. We live in beautiful Washington state, and yes it's rains most everyday in the winter months so I get lots of time for sewing and quilting.
