About Me

New Jersey, United States
I am the wife of a wonderful husband and the mom of three super adult kids and their spouses. I also proudly have three adorable grandsons. I happily taught preschool for 25 years. When I'm not with my grandsons I spend much of my time indulging in my "Quilty Pleasures."

Make-A-List Monday January/February 2018



We have been suffering through a very cold winter here in NJ.  

We've had snow storms and, at times, below zero temperatures.    

Even a mini blizzard won't keep my husband from grilling.


When we are not grilling outside we have been staying warm by eating a lot of homemade soup
and drinking gallons of homemade hot cocoa.

Our son and daughter-in-law, JT & Kaela, are about to adopt a rather large puppy.

This sweet puppy is predicted to grow to between 
99 and 130 pounds.  YIKES!

Her name is Thira.  In Greek that means "untamed."  Let's hope she will not live up to her name!!!

We celebrated my 
dear mother-in-law's birthday this weekend.
Here she is with her three great grandsons and the cake that Ryder helped bake.

Now on to my list


December 2017
(in review)

1.  Piece, quilt, bind and label at least one "Quilts for Kids" quilt.  Attend the QFK workshop at Pennington Quilt Works.





2.  Bonnie Hunter's 2017 Mystery Quilt : 
On Ringo Lake 

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3


Part 4


Parts 2, 5 & 7


Part 6


Part 8

At this point I will need to make 50 Part 8 blocks.  This will take me awhile, I'm sure, so I think I will work these as Leader/Enders until I have enough.  



3.  Bonnie Hunter's 2016 Mystery Quilt: 
En Provence

Block complete!

I only have to make 16 of these blocks so hopefully this quilt will come together a little faster than 
On Ringo Lake.  I plan on working on these blocks as Leader/Enders as well so we will see....
