About Me

I am the wife of a wonderful husband and the mom of 3 super adult kids. I happily taught preschool for 25 years and now spend much of my time indulging in my "Quilty Pleasures."

Quilts to be Quilted

I am very fortunate to be the proud owner of a long arm Handiquilter quilting machine that I call AVA.
I am unfortunate in that, because of the size of Ava's frame, I must keep her in my unfinished basement.


Now, I'm not complaining, but I do sometimes find it a little creepy to go downstairs all by myself.
Because of this, I often procrastinate finishing my quilt tops.



As of January 1, 2013, I have twelve tops that are ready to be quilted. The oldest top was finished in May of 2012. My goal is to get this number down to three or less by the end of the year. I'm sure as the year goes on, I will add to the "Quilts to be Quilted" list so I will have to be very prolific in getting this quilting done.


(Update - As you look at my list, you will notice that I have finished many more quilt tops than the twelve I mentioned in my original post.  I have never been able to get my
 "Git-R-Done" list down to my goal of three or less quilts to be quilted.  This list now serves as sort of a diary of what I have accomplished and what I have left to do.)
