Joannie and I met about six years ago at Curves (a womens' gym). Since then, we've taken aerobics together, tried a sock knitting class, as well as attending personal training gym. I've attempted walking in the mornings with Joannie, but she is much faster than I am. Joannie has earned my undying devotion for helping me dispose of a dead squirrel.
About two winters ago, Joannie asked me to help her learn to quilt.
Have I created a monster or what? After a quick Yellow Brick Road, Joannie's love of quilting took off like a rocket ship. Since then, Joannie has made dozens of quilts, hundreds of place mats and is turning into a mad machine quilter. She is much more adventuresome than I am and is afraid of no pattern. She made me a double wedding ring quilt when I got married last year and has done lots of other curved piecing as well. She graces the pages of my blog quite often.
|Always willing to try something new! At our Machine Embroidery weekend.|
|Always ready to come over and play with me in The Studio!|
|Always willing to go on a road trip!|
|Or a quilt lecture|
|Or another road trip! And Joannie loves to drive!|
|Not afraid to do silly things for my blog or model for my Etsy Shop.|
Pugs and kisses,
