1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a proud wife and momma of a son and daughter. I became a stay at home mom about two years ago after my daughter was born. When I am not spending time with my family you will most likely will find me in a fabric store. I would rather shop for fabric than shoes! My friends must think I am crazy!
I come from a long line of women who love to sew. My great grandmother’s quilts are still treasured to this day. My mother made all of my dance costumes when I was a child. I feel so fortunate to have been taught the skill of sewing. Who would have ever thought it would become a lost art form? Now that I am an adult, I have come to realize that my most prized possessions are handmade items that were made for me or that were passed down to me. I hope that one day my children feel the same way about the items I make for them. I feel an enormous amount of pride that I can make something for someone that has not come from a store. A gift, I know was quality made and will last a lifetime.
2. What is your favorite thing you have made for yourself? For someone else?
I made a double wedding ring quilt for my sister and brother-in-law for their wedding. Quilting is special to me because it has been passed down from generation to generation in my family. I find quilting soothing and can not think of a better cozy pastime on cold winter nights.
3. What is your favorite season/holiday to decorate for?
My favorite holiday is 4th of July. I am obsessed with anything red, white and blue for the summer. Making my children sailor themed outfits is a favorite yearly project of mine.
4. Any other interests or hobbies?
I dabble in photography. I also enjoy running and exercising in general.
5. Do you have a favorite quote?
“Do you know whatcha gotta do, when life gets you down? Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” – Dory, Finding Nemo
