I'm from Talkeetna, Alaska and live out away from everything except animals and birds.  I'm a retired RN, gardener, seamstress, quilter, horsewoman, soapmaker.   Two years ago, I was finally able to build a studio for sewing, quilting and soapmaking.   I love it, my happy place!  So, as these things go sometimes, I will find myself moving to PA in a few months to take care of my grandson.  I came to help take care of the baby when my daughter went back to work and she asked me to say and take care of him.  Very mixed feelings as I love and feel at peace in Alaska, but I can't miss out on him growing up.  So, PA, here I come.  Much as I love Alaska, I did realize there are many things here that I'll love, like Lots of quilt shops!  And, I got to go to AQS Lancaster Quilt show last week!

Your big heart has landed you right in the middle of quilt central! Although time for sewing may be a bit limited for a while, there will be no regrets. Grandtreasures keep us young:))

Thank you Riana!  I live in a one room cabin in Talkeetna and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to manage driving in PA.  So many people!  So, I take some deep breaths and think about being with family.  It'll certainly be different, but change is good!

Hi Karen - I left Alaska after 34 years to care for elderly parents.  They have since passed and I am still in Montana - I have a wonderful group of quilting friends here although its abit of a drive to quilt shops!  I was in Anchorage so was ready to leave due to never ending traffic!  Sometimes I can go days, in my small town, not meeting other cars at an intersection in our one-stoplight town!  I loved Talkeetna - and I totally understand your apprehension for driving in traffic!  I'm thinking you'll adjust just fine!  What an adventure for you - enjoy that grandbaby!
