I have been sewing & making quilts fo the past 25 years, but have really gotten into quilting big time since the end of 2011. I just love mqking quilts and have a longarm now so quilting is much less time consuming. I stay at home now and take care of my dogs & husband. He still has a few more years to work at the Pentagon then maybe we will retire some place warm. I have two children, a daughter who with her husband are stationed in Japan; and a son who currently works in California while his wife finishes school in Florida. So currently there are no grandchildren :( But we are hopeful, I guess we taught our kids to have too much fun traveling the globe! *UPDATE* My daughter & son in law are expecting in August our first grandchildren....TWIN GIRLS!!!
