About me

Gender Female
Location Tuscumbia, Alabama, United States
Introduction I'm a quilter, musician, wife, mother of a college sophmore, research biochemist (used-to-be), compulsive organizing freak, and a lover of all the history surrounding quilting. I am drawn to all forms of quilting, but particularly like to do hand applique and hand quilting, which I tend to approach with a wacky, weird sense of humor. After dabbling with pattern doodling, I'm offering some patterns for purchase through my online store (see the link above). I have recently returned to my state of origin after 25 years in the Midwest...wasn't really a Midwesterner, but not really a Southerner anymore...in limbo!
Interests quilting, singing, piano, clarinet, cooking, science, scrapbooking (archiving), organizing

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?

If I drop a quilting needle on the floor and no one else is home, is it really lost in the carpet?
