I am not very good at talking about myself but here’s a bit.

I am married to self proclaimed redneck…and I love him like crazy.  When we got married, I quickly realized that our life would revolve around farming…and 29 years later it still revoloves around farming.

God has blessed us with five great kids who keep our life busy in a good way.  They can really make me smile…what more can a mom ask for?  Three of them are out of college.  One is in nursing school. One is going for teaching. My husband has many of the same values that I do, so we work together to keep me home with the kids as much as we can…and I love that.   I work part time teaching continuing education classes for Childcare Resource and Referral and I work on my website  I have a passion for children and believe the best way I can help them is by helping the people who care for them.

If you have read the blog you know that I love my family, quilting, reading, gardening and cooking.  I am not into housecleaning or decorating.  A while ago, the house started to feel a little empty so I begged my husband to let me get a house dog…so we have our beagle Ruby to keep my company.

In the past couple years I’ve started teaming up with my oldest daughter Kelli and started dabbling in quilt designing.  Kelli our oldest has  become my quilting partner.  You can find our quilts published through Moda Bake Shop, Quiltmaker, Quilty,and American Patchwork and Quilting.  Kelli and I recently completed 14 quilts that will be featured in our new quilting book that is scheduled to be published February of 2015.  We are so excited.  We are selling autographed copies HERE.  

I am a real simple girl with a real simple life and I hope it always stays that way.
