Rita - A little about me
I have been a forever sewer, learning to hem dishtowels from feed sacks on a tredle sewing maching at about age 6. I made most of the clothing for my daughter and myself for many years and then I retired and discovered I much preferred to make flat things. I retired from teaching after 36 years, teaching Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth Science. I still enjoy the revelation of not having to do lesson plans or grading papers. I have only recently jumped into the art quilt world, having just completed a series of four 40x40 panels of the Four Seasons in the style of Confetti Naturescapes. The panels are based on a photo of the forested backyard of dear friends near Lexington Kentucky. I am excited to be a part of this distinguished group from which I know I will learn much more than I will ever contribute.
