Oh I was feeling so smug. It was Christmas Eve afternoon. The presents were wrapped, food cooked, table set and I had hours with nothing to do. Seemed like a perfect time to start on Clue 5. I even had Bonnie's new tool. I w...

En Provence- Part 3 and the joy continues
Yahoo, another step is done. A repeat of step one, only in purple.  This means more four patches to piece, spin and press. Following Bonnie's instructions resulted in another successful step. I have very few pieces that didn't come out right. Here is a samp...

En Provence, Half Way There.

Story
Tagline
I am stlll working full time, but when I have free time I have two activities that fill my days. First quilting and in the summer gardening. I am very new to blogging. I am a real novice, and I am sure making mistakes. So have patience. I'm learning as I go along. The purpose of this blog is to share stories about quilting, and especially with others. I'd love to hear from from others passing on their love of quilting.
Bragging rights
I have been married for 43 years. I have three grown children and two grandchildren. I have been quilting for nearly three years and loving it, and learning with each piece. Althought I have not written much in the last few years, I enjoy it. I am a published author, having co-written 2 books. Parenting Children with Attention Deficit Disorders and the Learning Differences Sourcebook. I also written for several local papers. Perhaps this blog is a way to get back in the groove.
