I am a machine and hand stitchaholic. Looking back, stitching has always been in my life: doll clothes, people clothes, wedding clothes, and finally quilts. Living in the Northwest, the bright lights, colorful fabrics and endless projects (in my sewing room), have been my therapy during non-gardening weather. A 10+ year chapter of my life was appliqué: in the sunshine, on the beach, and between snorkels on Maui, Hawaii. That great input is still with me. Now a generous husband, cats, garden, quilts, and friends keep me happy.
