Just Spendid

When you do things from your soul, 

you feel a river moving in you, a joy. -Rumi

Hello Splendids!

  Today is my day to celebrate with you the half way milestone of our journey together. Your visit to my little corner of cyberspace gives me the opportunity to introduce myself and get to know you too! Family   I am a wife to Andy (the Earl de Schlep as he is know among quilters), Mother to two amazing young women, Emily married to Russ (my Son in Love) and parents to my grands! Twin boys who will turn 2 next week, and Jane who will be 10 months old tomorrow. My youngest daughter Mary Beth and soon to be Son in Love Louis make us a family. We are in full-blown wedding plans around here, and enjoying every minute. These are the most important parts of my life.

As for our Spledid journey, my journey has been derailed because of new designs and patterns coming soon and a very busy family life.  I have appointed my self the official Caboose of the group. I will cheer for those who are chugging along with their blocks and celebrate our progress. I am just beginning. Yes there I said it..I have many blocks cut and ready to sew…but that is IT! My name is Pat, I am one of the designers and am just getting on the Splendid sewing train and not ashamed to admit it! WHEWW that made me feel so much better. 

My quilting universe revolves around my company Silver Thimble QuiltCo. Everything about quilting is joyful to me and I hope you will join me by following my blog. Aside from working on catching up with all the splendid quilters and the blocks, I am also working on somenew designs for my company.  I am a Martingale author with a new book out Baby Bliss celebrating snuggly babies with my good friend and coauthor Kim Diehl.My books

I am currently celebrating my love of handwork and Christmas through my snoopy_happy_dancebook Handmade Christmas Cheer. I have tutorials on the 25th of each month until December on my blog  Come join the fun.
