About Me

Welcome to my blog!  
My name is Tricia. 
I have one teenage son who is awesome, one handsome husband, and a grumpy old dog.  
I am a registered nurse with a B.S. in nursing.  All of my nursing experience is in Trauma Intensive Care at a Level 1 Trauma Center.    
I have Fibromyalgia and an auto immune disease called Systemic Lupus.  Sometimes I post whiny stuff about how I feel about it.  Just skip over those parts.
Due to the severity of my illness, I am currently unable to work in nursing.

I love to sew, quilt (my newest love), paper piece, read, and create new things. I post about sewing, creating, cooking, and sometimes, about events in my life.  I founded our local modern quilting group which has now become a chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild.  We are Tyler Modern Quilt Guild.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog.  I hope you'll follow me and leave me comments on how you think it's going.

My sewing machines:
I use my Janome DC2010 for classes and sew days and also for some fancy stitches.

I also have a Juki TL 2010Q which I received for Christmas 2014.  It is awesome!  I do all my piecing and quilting on it.  It is so easy to work with and I don't think I would ever give it up. 

My newest machine is a Janome Horizon Memory Craft 7700 which I bought used.  I'm still getting use to her but I'm really starting to love her.

Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
