Cause I’m a picker
I’m a grinner
I’m a lover
And I’m a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I’m a joker
I’m a smoker
I’m a midnight toker
I sure don’t want to hurt no one

Okay that describes someone totally different than me, but it’s what popped into my head when I started doing this page. Thanks to Steve Miller for the partial lyrics to “Space Cowboy”

Here’s a more accurate description of me: I’m short, chubby, gray-haired, with sagging body parts and sparkling blue eyes. I live in the wide-open spaces of western Nebraska and have lived here most of my life. It’s a good place to live, and the pace of life is fairly slow. I live with my bestest friend, who spoils me rotten. I was probably rotten before I met him, but now he has added the spoiled part.

I am lucky enough to not have to bother with working, although I do a little free-lance computer work, mostly for fun and to keep my brain tuned up.

I am quite the accidental quilter. A few years ago I went with a friend to a co-worker’s house to learn to quilt. I actually went along to socialize, never intending to learn. After all, I was a tomboy in my youth and anything domestic is just not my thing. Boy did I get suckered in! Next thing I knew, I was in the stuff-gathering phase. Fabric, tools, gadgets, a new sewing machine, more fabric, more tools, books.

I finally settled into “doing” more than buying and reading. I will always consider myself a beginner though. I’ve made some quilts for family members and am in the final stages of getting one done for us. I have lots of ideas and not enough time for most of them

expression3 This spring I got a new sewing machine which I just love. I’ve named her April, and she has a large amount of throat space so I can learn to do free-motion quilting on my own.

One of these days I’ll be brave and show you pictures of some of the quilts I have made, but only if you’re very nice to me. I like M&M’s.
