Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I'm the wife of Paul (30 years) and mother of Alan, MIL of Ashley, proud new Grandma to Ada Ruby. I live on a farm (Yellow Rock Farm) and we garden and raise alpacas. I love most crafts, mostly sewing, embroidering and quilting.

Why do you quilt?
To preserve memories, give gifts of myself, and so I can buy fabric!
All in the camelid family: camels, llamas, alpacas. I have 13 alpacas and 2 llamas that guard "their" herd. We do shear once a year and I send off the fleece to a mill in TN and get yarn back. It's gorgeous! If I only knew how to knit and/or crochet, I'd be set! At some point when retirement is upon me, I'd like to card and spin my own fiber into yarn, then learn to crochet. Ah, for more time! But we love having alpacas!
