I’m a Mormon mother of 5, happily devoted to my sweetheart, who loves to quilt and write fiction in my spare time. I’m especially partial to applique, though I like to piece, as well. But if I could, I’d put a little applique on all my pieces. I’ve been quilting for about 10 years and am especially gifted at starting projects. Not so gifted in following them through to the end. Lots of flimsies and lots of fabric bought meant for some project I couldn’t wait to start but never got around to. My writing is the same. Lots of starts and few finishes. The process is all part of the fun for me, and while it may be frustrating for those around me, I don’t see myself changing any time soon. Life is good, even with blemishes. God is good and I’m thankful for his watchful care. My children are starting to leave the nest and it’s both exciting and terrifying at the same time. They bring new people in our lives to care and worry about and more blessings than I can hold with both hands.
