Hello fellow bloggers! Welcome to Spruce It up Quilting!
This space was created as a means to record my journey into longarm quilting.
Crafting is my pastime, sewing is my therapy, and now blogging is my record keeper. Here I share a bit about my life as a wife to a wonderful, patient, supportive husband who has just retired, mother to 4 adult children, and grandmother to 1 adorable little boy as well as daughter, sister to 4 incredible women, and aunt to many. Over the years, I have dabbled in watercolors, tole painting, woodworking, costuming, cake baking, scrap booking, card making, photography, stamp making, needle crafting: knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, rug hooking, embroidery and quilting.
I've quilted off and on since 1978 gifting a lot of quilts to family and friends but since retirement from working outside the home in early 2013, I have become obsessed with quilting. Last spring, I saw an ad for a gently used Gammill Premier Plus from a local quilter who was cleaning out her studio and decided now was the time to finally get all those quilt tops finished. Lolah is her name and with her, I hope to offer my experience as Spruce It Up Longarm Quilting Services.
We're presently on the move from Southern California, more specifically Tarzana CA, to Port Elgin, New Brunswick, Canada, my husband's home town. I have pre-written and scheduled this post because, the day it broadcasts, I will be busy attending a week-long roster of longarm classes at Road to California Quilt show, learning all I can from fabulous teachers before the move.
Won't you come join me? Become a follower! I hope to see you soon! And don't forget to link to Vicki's blog where she has a list with links to all the bloggers participating in this party! Sit back, click the links, be inspired, and enjoy the ride! Perhaps you'll find new friends too! I know I plan to.
