Why Being in Southern Journeys is Important to Me: "Being a part of Southern Journeys is important to me because it gives me the opportunity to learn from other rural women from AL, GA and MS. We are able to talk, discuss and share experiences, and it's a way to learn more about my heritage."
About Me: "I enjoy sewing, especially quilting. I have been sewing for 30 years, to me, it’s like cooking, they both go hand-in-hand. When you cook for a large family, like I have, sometimes you have to think about what you are going to put together. A lot of times, recycle foods from your refrigerator (leftovers) become the highlight of the day. I also feel the same way about quilting. A tradition that was handed down from my grandmother and mother, whatever scrap pieces they found laying around the house, became a quilt for the winter months.
My favorite place to visit is Washoe Pines in Reno, Nevada. I only visited once but hope to return soon. I love children and I am sometimes called the Pied Piper of children, coming from a large family.
My Favorite saying is 'Life is not a remote control, you have to get up and change it yourself'".
