Do you have other creative hobbies?: I used to do cross stitch and crochet, but now all I do is quilting

What’s your oldest UFO? Any tips on how you keep them from piling up?: Actually, it’s not quilting. I’m an author also, and I have a couple of unfinished books. The characters quit speaking to me. I’m hoping they’ll talk to me again someday

What’s your favorite creative outlet?: Quilting by far

Tell us about your family! : Okay, here goes. I have six children, three girls, and three boys, in that order. I have fourteen grandchildren (soon to be fifteen) and thirteen great-grandchildren. They are my pride and joy

What’s your favorite food? : I love all food

Do you have a favorite collection from The Art of Home Club?: I’ve just joined so I can’t say I have a favorite yet

Is there anything else you’d like to share?: Right now my first love (besides God and my family) is quilting. I can spend hours every day working on quilts. My son asked me to please not give them any more table runners or quilts. Boy is he going to be surprised come Christmas. Fortunately, many of my grandchildren are married or live outside of the parent’s homes, so they’re going to be blessed with table runners and wall hangings
