I have lived in Japan for 35 years and currently live with my husband, 6 cats and a dog. My two children are studying in the States. I have been a quilter for over 20 years but I teach English to neighborhood children for a living (I have a good time too!) I love the Bible and Jesus and try to serve as I can in a very small local church.
I'm a self-taught quilter who for the past 20 years has progressed through trial and error mostly using Japanese books. I belong to a small group of quilters and we yearly make a bazaar quilt but on my own I dabble in hand piecing and strip piecing and hand quilting. Since joining the blogging world I've enjoyed Wonky piecing and am trying to get a handle on machine quilting using a domestic machine.
