Hi! I’m Barb and I’m a Quilter. “Hi, Barb.” Quilting is a huge addiction. All quilters understand that. It takes over your home and your life. I am now a blogger too. My friends made me do it. They’ve been after me a long time and I finally succumbed. I have a feeling it could take over my home and my life too!
The banner picture on my blog is my Quilting Bee, Just Say Sew. We’ve been quilting together for about 18 years. The picture is at our April 2010 Retreat in Mt. Calm, Texas. Some of us are even in our pajamas – we took the picture far enough away that you couldn’t tell….. or the fact that most of us don’t have any makeup on. That’s what our retreats are all about. Quilting, eating and back to nature. In the midst of beautiful wildflowers!
I also love cats. Quilts and cats go together in my book. And in my blog. You’ve met Boo and Miss Kitty, my dear hubby’s cat. He brought her home with him after a 14 month job in Tulsa. Both of them have graduated to Heaven – I hope they are having a fabulous time there! Now we have dear Pappy who is such a hoot! His antics have filled my blog pages with loads of videos of his silliness. And dear sweet Panda, the kitty who wishes she lived in an only cat household and wishes Pappy would just leave her alone. Then there is Pebbles too. Adopted from our backyard feral community in the summer of 2016. She’s a cutie but she still runs and hides whenever she hears a strange voice in the house. And she barely tolerates us petting or scratching her. It’s a good thing she’s cute or she might have ended up back in the yard with her siblings! Ha! And 3 of her siblings (actually one is a cousin and probably a half brother – it’s complicated) are still around and come regularly for meals on our back deck. It’s a cat paradise at our house!
I hope that you enjoy my blog!
