Welcome all! Thanks for stopping on by. I’m Katy, the gal to the left working away on the quilt. I started this little ‘ol blog here during my journey after my divorce. A journey that has been full of changes, discovering who I really am (and finally allowing others to know her, and be okay with that), and doing things for me. Here’s a few random things about me:
I am a Midwestern girl, born and raised. I love the change of seasons and that we see all four.
I love to sew and quilt. My mom taught me to sew when I was a wee one, then to quilt while in middle school. I have been hooked ever since! There isn’t a place in the house that doesn’t have at least one quilt folded up and tucked somewhere.
I love wearing scarves. As soon as the weather begins to cool, my neck is covered. I have many scarves, but no girl can ever have too many!
I have a Dr. Pepper problem. But, hey, it’s delicious, am I right?? I’ve been working to ween from it for years.
And a fabric problem. So many great fabrics out there! The patterns, the colors, the textures. As we quilters say: “The girl with the most fabric when she dies wins!” I am currently losing to my mom…
My family and friends mean the world to me. They have been my absolute biggest supporters through all of my life. I know I can turn to them for advice, as a sounding board, for a shoulder to cry on, or to just let loose and have a little fun.
I have a large family outside of my blood family. My job is full of brothers & sisters. We watch each other’s backs, and would lay our life down for each other.
I can’t seem to sew as fast as I fall in love with more fabric. Once again, back to the ‘having a fabric problem’.
I have an enormous amount of passion that burns in my heart. For so many things. It’s immense and burns bright.
I wish for sun in the summer, and snow in the winter. I love the moment when you look around in the spring and noticed that suddenly, everything has come to life again. I love the colors and crinkling leaves in the fall.
