About Me

My photo
Married 39 years, mother of 3 and grandmother of 5. I'm a seamstress and I've worked at a alteration shop for about 17 years. It's been real interesting working with women from 6 different nations. Jesus is the center of my live. He is my peace, my refudge, my beloved. My prayer is that the work of my hands, the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart are pleasing to Him.

Not a Winner, but an Accomplishment

The picture on the right is my entry in the American Sewing Expo "Classic American Automobile" Quilt Contest. The picture on the left is a drawing by John Hayes, and my inspiration. John is an artist from England. You can see more of his work at
I have never entered a quilt contest before. Grant you, I had no expectations of winning, but I was still willing to try. I mailed my entry off and then went on a vacation, with my hubby and our daughter Amy's family. Therefore, I was unable to attend the American Sewing Expo. I was not a winner, but it was worth the try and the experience.

So, if anyone is interested, I have a 30" x 30" quilt of a 57 Chevy Bel Air for sale.

It TRULY is a great accomplishment! I wish it had been in nearby Grabill a couple of weeks ago! There was a "Cruise-In". Seems like there was a huge concentration of 56-58 Chevys! I'll be you could have gotten TOP DOLLAR!
