Welcome to my blog!

I have to admit that I never thought I'd be doing a blog. After all, I have a web site, so what more did I need? I do think I'll be keeping the web site, too, as it's a good way for me to quickly find information I've saved about any specific quilt. However, I think the blog has several advantages, as those few people who would like to see what I'm doing will be updated automatically, if they want to subscribe.

So to begin this blog, I thought I'd tell you a bit about myself. I'm a retired high school French teacher, a métier I loved while I was doing it. :)  I was living in a small town in Arizona with my husband and two daughters, but when the time came that I could retire I jumped at it -- as so many people do. Our daughters were grown and married, and my husband and I decided to move to the Las Vegas area to be closer to them and their families, now numbering five grandchildren. :)

I had begun quilting while I was still employed, and retirement allowed me to expand that by a lot. Living here has given me the opportunity to take lots of classes from wonderful instructors, which I truly enjoy. One of my favorite places to do that is at Quilt Camp in the Pines, in Flagstaff, AZ. I've loved the chance to meet other quilters, too, as there weren't very many where we lived previously. 

So here's hoping I have something to contribute and that you will enjoy it! :)
