Family

Hi my name is Shannon and welcome to my blog!

A little about me:  I’m a single parent of a little boy named Matthew.  I have a dog named Chewy as well.  I have been sewing/quilting on and off for about 9 years.

I actually work as an auditor and accountant.  But sometimes that analytical side of me needs a break, so I do crafts as well.  I started out learning to cross stitch with my grandmother when I was a little girl.  I’ve done various crafts growing up.  I realized how much I enjoy making things with my hands.

When I was pregnant with Matthew, I taught myself how to sew and made a few items for him (and me!).  A few years later I took a quilting class and fell in love with the possibilities of creating something beautiful that could be handed down to my children. The community of quilters that I have met since I began my quilting journey have been amazing, helpful, and insightful. In today’s world of social media and busy lifestyles you rarely get an opportunity to chat face to face. By becoming a part of the quilting community, you become part of a family that works together for the good of the group, the artistry and to keep an old tradition alive.

I look forward to sharing my projects and tips with you, as well as seeing what you have to share!
