Hi! I am Lisa, Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, United States Navy Veteran, and Artist.
In a rural area of West Virginia, USA, my family and I, live with 2 dogs, chickens, squirrels, and miscellaneous deer (they live in our woods). We grow, can, and freeze, both fruits and vegetables. I will admit I am a awful cook but my husband is a Chef. Besides blogging I enjoy, quilting, sewing, crocheting, and knitting! Haven’t met to many crafts I haven’t tried.
I am so grateful to God and my family! They all are such wonderful people who cared for me during the years it took to find myself. I should say put up with me. It was really rough on me , so I know it was 10 times worse on them. I try to show them everyday how much I love them for everything they have done for me. Physical and mentally they are Good people!
Quilting became my therapy after an accident left me disabled in 2000. I could not longer work in my profession or any other. I identified my self through my work. It was my purpose in life to provide for my family. After losing my job, I was lost!
A doctor told me to find something meaningful that I could do within my limitations! It took a few years until I stumbled into a quilt store (WV Quilts), whose owner and staff where caring and loving. They taught me how to sew and gave me purpose again. People to talk to and creations to make. Michelle challenged me with bigger and harder projects to help me grow my skills. My first quilt was a Rag Quilt for my momma. I had found a since purpose completing that first quilt.
Now I have self confidence, self worth, and a purpose. It is challenging with no deadlines except the ones I put upon myself. Even on the medications with safeguards, I can sew, create, blog and make friends. Something no therapist could give me back but the quilting community did.
So, yes quilting is my therapy.
Fast forward to today!
I love to blog, blog hop, swap, sew, quilt, crochet, knit, and just about any DIY project. I am a fabric and Aurifil thread lover!
