Quilting is one of the few places in my life where all the corners meet and stay put. On this blog I plan to ruminate about quilting and life, the quilted life, cat and quilts, and any old thing that falls in and out of my brain. I'd be pleased to hear from you on all of this or any topic of interest!

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck....
Becky was born on her due date, November 22, 1981 and I finished her baby quilt in spring 1992. When we pulled this one out to photograph it, I noticed it has started to age somewhat, some fading. But still cute. How my quilt designs have changed since this. This one looks soooo innocent!
Becky was a much sought after child. I was 23 when her older sister, Jamie was born and that was at the end of the "money making 1970's" when economic times were pretty good. I so much wanted to have a second child because I had had siblings and I knew how important they were to my formation as a human being. I wanted the same experience for Jamie and I really wanted another child but convincing my husband took some time. So 3-1/2 years later, Becky arrived, mostly due to my woman wiles, I think. Now Becky is a grown up woman and has learned to sew herself. Will we see Becky's quilts coming out of Plano, Texas some day? You never cant tell!
Tons of ideas about quilts in my pointy little head and never enough time, I am married to my sweetheart, have two beautiful daughters, two fantastic son-in-laws, one precious grandson, two crazy, lazy cats AND a full time job. When, you ask, does she find time to quilt? I sleep very little. Not by choice, mind you. Just the facts, ma'am.
