About Me

I started quilting in 2001, when my son Brian was old enough (15) to not care where I was or what I was going to quilt shows on the weekend. Since I have created and maintain several other web sites for a variety of businesses and nonprofit organizations, I thought it would be fun to make a web site where I could post pictures and stories of the quilts I've this is it!

I'm just starting, though, so there's lots more to come.

This picture is of me (!) with my two dogs, Lucy and Divot. They weren't behaving for the picture. I was going to try to get a better one of them, but sadly, we lost Divot  in October 2010.  Unbeknownst to us,  he had an abdominal tumor that burst.  He was so weak from blood loss he could hardly wag the tip of his tail.

Lucy misses him, as we do, and doesn’t she look sad in this picture (below)?

She isn’t really. She just doesn’t like to have her picture taken.  Like me.

Lucy passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 1, 2015.  She was 13.

We now have two lab puppies that Lucy helped raise.  Or, at least, tolerated.  

Some of us hear a new idea and explore whether we can use it to improve our lives.  Some of us hear a new idea and try to immediately debunk it.  Which life do you want to lead?  ~ Alan Weiss

Here’s one with Dodger trying to look pathetic.

Here’s my favorite puppy picture - “helping” to bring in the mail.
