Here are a few random facts about us:
sunny Florida after 13 years and moved to central California in June,

Napa.....one of my favorite places on earth!
at a sushi restaurant in Destin on August 31, 2000. The friend I was
with was trying to set me up with Mr. Sew Fab's best friend. Things
didn't work out as she had planned.....
-John (a.k.a. Mr.
Sew Fab) is an F-15 pilot and military guy by day.....and a mover of
large boxes of fabric and fixer of computer problems by night.
I'm not being a quilt shop owner I'm also a veterinarian. I only
practice occasionally now.....I got a little burned out in my former
profession. The quilting world is a much happier place! One day in
the spring of 2009 I decided I'd had enough of the vet world and that I
wanted to open a quilt shop. So I jumped off that "cliff" and never
looked back! Mr. Sew Fab was 100% on board. That's just the kind of guy

-We have three dogs, Emma Jane, Sammy and Baxter and two cats, Cassi and Bailey. They are our kids!
-I love pink. Pink is not just a color.......it's a way of life!
-I love Hello Kitty.

-I love cooking, baking, sipping wine and making most of our food from scratch.
-I love Italian food.
-I love to eat raw cookie dough. Yes. I live on the edge.
-I love building dollhouses.
-I don't drink soda or anything with caffeine.
-I live in yoga clothes or pajamas or running clothes. It's one of the many benefits of working from home.
went to Hawaii once via Japan. It's a long story. I've also been to
Paris, London, Brussels, Venice, Cinque Terre (Italian Riviera),
Tuscany, Holland and Germany. My favorite places are Tuscany, Napa and
anywhere with snowy mountains.
-I learned to sew when I
was 5 years old. My Mom was working on a needlepoint project and when
she left for a moment I just picked it up and started sewing. And I
haven't stopped since.
And that's my life in a nutshell! Thanks for stopping by!
