About Me

Good Morning,

Just because I say that all day long. I tend to be a little unconventional but I enjoy the process as much, if not more, than the end product. My name is Jennifer and I am 51 years old. I live in Virginia, USA, but I was born and raised in Southern California. Growing up a few miles from Disneyland (and Disney’s original studio) and the beach gave me a magical childhood and a wonderful perspective on life.

I spent several years in the US Army as a helicopter mechanic, where I met my darling husband. I got out and went to OBC and became a Chemical officer. I married my DH in 1990 after spend several weeks with him in Egypt. We fell in love with the country. Shortly after we got married we moved to West point New York. Where our first child was born. 25 years later we have 7 children and live in Virginia.

My children range from the baby 16 years old to my eldest who is 34 years old. I now have 7 grandchildren. The newest was born December 7th, 2015. My son just adopted a 17 year old, so now I have a grandchild older than my youngest child. Life just continues to be exciting and unexpected.

I love swapping I have been doing it with quilt squares and fabric for the past 15 plus years. I am excited that I have found this site it seems to have stream lined the process greatly.

Me and My Hubby

My Girls

The 4 youngest: Nico & Sophia

I will wait to rate if you would like to send me more five inch square cuts of fabric in some different prints. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. I sure hope my instructions on the swap were clear. UPDATE: I GOT THE SECOND PACKAGE, and love the fabrics. Thank you so much for sending more to meet the swap requirements.
