One great book!
Today is my day to blog about the wonderful new book out by nine very talented quilters and they just so happen to be from the Rocky Mountains of Utah. Just like the beautiful mountains that surround us this book if full of beautiful projects to make. Konda Luckua spear headed the whole project a while ago and she really picked some fine, fine ladies to jump aboard. Together they have put together an exceptional book. I think you will like all projects they feature. The best about this little tour is that they want to share their book with you. From each stop on the tour they will be giving away a book, so leave me a comment about what you think about our Rocky Moutains of Utah and if you live out of state, have you been able to visit us? Make sure you make the stops at all of the bloggers who are participating. Just click the book front on my side bar for the links. And by the way I can't figure out this new blogging format, can't we go back to the old style?
My hands are always busy, this has led to many crafty endevers, interior design, paper crafting, or sewing, but my favorite obsession is quilting and making bags. You can just call me an "Old Bag"! My husband, Stuart and I are empty nesters who like to travel in our 5th wheel trailer and spoil our three kids, two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law and five darling grandkids. (if there's any money leftover from buying fabric!)
I work at Corn Wagon Quilts in Springville, Utah. The perfect job for me. I teach quilt and bag classes for the Corn Wagon and Dave's Bernina in Provo and St. George, Utah. It's a good thing we don't have to live off what money I make, 'cause you know it has to buy fabric! Glad you stopped by, pull up a chair, a diet coke, chocolate and lets get accquainted.
"The desire tocreate is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish tocreate something that did not exist before .... creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty ..."

This is my husband Stuart. This is who I share my nest with. He likes the outdoors, hunting, guns, and ME! He is a wonderful cook (am I lucky or what?) He is a fun, kind and loving father and grandpa. I'm so blessed to have in my life.
