Growing up in Massachusetts and Connecticut I was second of five siblings. Daddy was a teacher and we kept Mom busy at home while we were small.
John Thomas and I raised 2 sons, Jon and Mike. When the boys were older, I worked several jobs including, Elementary School Secretary, School Nurse, Adventist Book Center Clerk, and four years as Registrar at Maxwell Adventist Academy in Kenya.
Always a quilt project in progress, my sewing machine is never lonely. Occasionally I abandon the sewing machine for the woodshop. I like household items from early America.
