Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am happily married and work full time in health care administrations. We live on 3 beautiful acres in Oregon. We have no kids and love being alone with our mini-pincher/chihuahua mix dogs, Minnie & Muffin. We both have lots of hobbies and enjoy the weekends together. I also have a passion for designer handbags and cosmetics. I collect civil war vintage fabrics and Limoges antique china. I love shopping, jewelry and bubble baths.
Hi Kerri~I'm over in Seaside. Where is Brownsville?
Being in a small town, I have no quilting group or guild to join, so I came to this site in hopes of meeting other quilters. Once I joined some of the groups it was much easier meeting others; everyone has been so friendly and helpful!
I started quilting 6 years ago after having to take an early retirement. I was hooked after that first quilt, but lately I've been in a bit of a slump. My husband says I need to challenge myself more and he's probably right!
We don't have any kids either; we have a beagle named Mackenzie and she's quite a handful! We've always had large breeds, and this is our first small dog; I didn't realize she would be such a high maintenance dog, but of course she's our baby!
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and I hope you'll enjoy it here as much as I do!
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
