I am Amy. This blog started out as a way to showcase my quilting. It has morphed into something else, entirely! Including my new-found love for Nubian milk goats. My poor BrewMaster has been stuck with me since we met in college 20 years ago. Together we have 4 rugrats– The Apprentice (15), WildChild (12), BlueEyed Boy (9) and BrownEyed Boy (7)
I started quilting because there was no one else to make heirlooms for my children! I was pregnant with my first child, and my first niece was also on the way. I sewed mostly dresses until I quit working at the birth of our 2nd daughter. Those first two quilts were plain 9 patch and snowball blocks, and hand quilted because I had no concept of machine quilting. I now have a Bernina Activa 125, as well as a Tin Lizzie Empress Long Arm. They are named Bernie and Jemma Tell. I also have a Singer 301 that is used as my WorkHorse these days.
I started soaping because I needed a use for the Nubian milk….in case it tasted nasty! (spoiler–it doesn’t!) I love the chemistry and the artistry combined.
peace and pieces, and goat poop too……..
