I love Quilting and making jewelry. I also like gardening. I had always been interested in quilting since a child. My Grandma Mae taught me how to hand quilt. When I got my dream machine I just took off and have been loving it ever since. On the jewelry side my sister took me to a pearl knotting class and fell in love with it.
