A city girl living my dream on a small ranch in central Texas. I'm a quilter, a gardener, a wife, a mom and a grandma. I grew up in a small town in southwest Louisiana, and spent most of my early adult years there. After Vince and I married, we moved to Kentucky, then to Missouri, and now we're in Texas and I hope this is where we stay. As a quilter, I've written three books, all published by American Quilter's Society. Nine Patch Extravaganza was published in 2007. Weekend Quilts was published in 2010 and 60 Pieced Quilt Borders published in 2012. We have 20+ chickens. The bantams keep hatching babies so the number grows more rapidly than we'd like. I love to cook! We have a rather large vegetable garden and 20+ fruit trees. We eat lots of fresh fruit and veggies and I can a lot of them. Every day is an adventure around here. We look forward to each and every day of enjoying life on our little ranch!
