I made...well tried to make...a few simple very small quilts when I was younger. At that time I didn't know what "good" fabric was, what "good" thread was, or that I could do more than sew squares together. Around June of 2012 I saw an ad or something that had a picture from Fresh Lemons Quilts, I clicked the link and was hooked from there. I started researching and looking and found many blogs that were of huge help to me. I invested in a cutting mat, rotary cutter, fabric, thread and a great Janome sewing machine. From there, there was no looking back. I am now here to share my journey. I live in NM with my husband of 18 years and my poodle Max. I have 3 grown children and 5 beautiful grand daughters.


  1. I love your blog! Your story is like mine. I was so thrilled the day I found out there was a whole other fabric world beyond Hancocks. Plus with all the sewing blogs and online tutorials/patterns I've been addicted ever since. :)

    1. Thanks Staci! I know just what you mean! It IS addicting and one of those things that is never going to get old for me :)
