Glad to Be Here

Hello all.  My name is Charlotte, my blog is GrammieQs.  I am really looking forward to this quilting group.  I love reading and quilting, but I especially love  the fellowship of quilters and readers.  I belonged to a book club a number of years back and I was sad when we broke up.  It seems everyone has such busy lives and many of our members had school aged kids with tons of commitments.

I do not have any school aged kids, so I can do this stuff.  I have 3 grown daughters and 2 smallish grandsons.  So I have lots of reasons to quilt. (as if I needed any)  I have been quilting for about 20 years now.  I was into garment sewing from the time I was 10.  My grandmother taught me, as she was a professional seamstress back in the day.

My husband and I are (finally) empty nesters and both work outside the home.  I tell people I don't find time for quilting and crafting, I make time.  It is important to me.  I also crochet and am slowly doing projects around the house like tiling and painting.

I have never read this series of books, so am looking forward to it.  I love it when I find a series by an author that I can get into.  I received a Kindle for my anniversary in May, so that's how I will be reading along.   Feel free to stop by my blog and take a look at some of my stuff.

Now let's get reading!!



  1. Glad to meet you, Charlotte! I am looking forward to reading this book, too, tho I will use the old fashioned way! LOL I have to MAKE time for quilting and sewing too....looking forward to retiring, but not sure when it will happen!!

  2. Welcome Charlotte! Thanks for posting about yourself. I haven't read any of this series either, but it has gotten good reviews, so I am looking forward to getting started.

  3. Hi Charlotte. I discovered, thanks to another blogger, that I could get kindle books on my iPod, which is much smaller than a Kindle. Well, reading the books on the iPod sent me to the eye doctor - said I had eye strain - LOL!!
