I am a wife and a mother. I make quilts and work at a fabric store. I have a mug that says, "I use to cook before I learned how to quilt". :) I also garden and am getting ready to take the Master Gardeners course. My hubby and I like to go for hikes with our dog Tank. My kids are older now and do their own things. My favorite cookbook is....Mastercook with traded recipes from all over the world. I do love the small cookbook called "Aglow in the Kitchen" which I will post recipes from. A dream to still fullfill is to go on a cruise and visit the tropics. I love bright colors, scrappy quilts and masses of flowers and people and sharing recipes.
