Hello and Welcome! I appreciate you stopping by and hope you will come back to visit. My name is Debbi and I live just outside the small town of Arcanum, Ohio. Please don't feel too bad if you have never heard of it! (We are west and slightly north of Dayton.)
Why did I start to blog? Several reasons! I see all the nice blogs out there with great hints and tips on crafting and quilting that I wanted to join in the fun! Plus, blogging is a way to keep track of what I have accomplished recently. I may not have many of my own tips and hints, but I can direct you to ones that I have found! Here is my current project: a variation of the Sugar & Spice quilt by Lyn Brown featured in Quilt It - Today magazine. I have finished 7 of the 12 blocks; I should finish the top this weekend.
I also believe that we should always be trying something new, so blogging is my adventure into doing something new - deliberately and (I hope) thoughtfully. I try NOT to vent about my job, (I teach middle school math), my husband (of almost 30 years), or my sons, (almost 20 & 21, one at home again and one away at school), but I have to admit it - sometimes venting just happens! Plus, since one of my medications (I was diagnosed with Parkinson's last year) has a side effect of causing obsessive/compulsive behavior, I think I am completely justified in acting on my current quilting, crafting, and sewing obsessions! Why not blog about it all?
I won't scare you away with pictures of the family yet - lol- so let me introduce my cats - Zorro and Hoshi! They, of course, believe they own this house and the humans are just "staff."
Thanks for stopping! Hope to see you again soon!
