Marlene at Stitchin by the Lake is facilitating a get to know the neighborhood weekly post, and this week I’m on the list of featured bloggers. Thank you for introducing me to the neighborhood, Marlene!
I live in the hill country of
Texas. The picture in my
blog header shows Packsaddle Mountain, as seen from our property in . My family has lived in Texas several generations and by
happenstance, our property is adjacent to the original land one of my ancestors
received as a land grant prior to the Civil War. We are city folks, though,
and live in a community about half an hour from there. Llano County
When we receive lots of rain in October, the wildflowers turn the hill country into a place of incredible beauty in March and April.
I can’t remember when I made my first quilt, but I do know I used a magazine pattern that optimistically claimed it could be completed in a weekend (but not by me). I used synthetic blends, wrapped the backing to the front for a binding, and failed to bury my quilting knots. My husband hated that quilt, but we used it until it fell apart and was discarded.
When I retired in 2006, we returned to
I joined a quilt club and began spending Tuesdays at Sit ‘N Sew at a nearby quilt shop. Whenever anyone asks when I began quilting, I
usually say 2007. I’ve got a lot left to
learn, but am I ever enjoying the journey. Texas.
I always seem to have lots of projects going at once and you can spot some of them in recent posts.
Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate visitors to my blog and would love to hear from you.
