Married 30 yrs, I'm a 50 yr old mother of 2 - boy (29), girl (16). 3 years ago I started a new job, working as a security technician. I really like it, but I'm hoping to move up.

I started quilting about 10 years ago and I love it. I find it to be very relaxing. I also love the feeling of accomplishment when the quilt is done. Of coure, I'm a fabraholic - just can't seem to stop. But I make wonderful things out of it all. On top of this hobby I also love photography, crafts, reading, travel, working in my gardens, my dogs, cats, cooking and a variety of other things. And no, I'm not Martha Stewart, but I'm close.

One of my newest hobbies that I share with hubby is - Motorcycles. Yep, I said it. We're off and riding!! We got motorcycles around Christmas time. We've both had our licenses forever, but I haven't ridden in over 30 yrs. Hubby was patient and retaught me to shift and everything and now we're off and riding. At first I was nervous, afraid I wouldn't like it, but I love it!! Something about riding down the road on that bike makes me feel alive!! Our kids and some friends thought we were crazy - at our age - but we explained, we're not getting any younger and this life is only so long. We're living it to the fullest!!

I became a first time grandmother about 3 years ago. Hannah Isabelle came into our lives and swept us away. She is a bright, energetic, smart, bubbly ball of fire!!!!! She's talking up a storm now, and very entertaining to boot. Grams and Pops love whatever time we get to spend with her!!!!!

We live in the country, in a small town, where we both grew up. I'm surrounded by woods and all things nature. Deer in the lane, racoons in the trees, fox in the fields....and birds everywhere. I love it, and I love being where I grew up!!

Well, that's about it, I'm all tangled up in life!!

The trouble with trouble is, it usually starts out like fun.

It's all fun and games until someone looses an eye, then it just fun you can't see.

    Thank you it is one of my favorites still. This was my first (and mostly last) paper pieced project. I wanted to learn how to paper piece. My son born the day before Halloween has since taken this as his own quilt.

    Hard to tell it is a skinnier me since I screwed up and forgot to dress for the picture! Even after reminder emails, I still show up in sweatshirt and jeans emoticon That is the second time I have done that for this group. I just get so tired dressing up for work every day, my favorite non-work attire is sweats or worn out jeans with baggy shirts...comfort all the way! But yes, thanks for noticing, my face is skinnier than the Tahoe picture, which is when I was really pushing the weight back up there too high! have a fabulous day emoticon hope you are doing better!
