Mostly I Just Like to Ramble on & Make Things.
I'm Katie Joy & these are my misadventures in imperfect quilting & homemaking.
MORE THAN A FEW RANDOM BITS ABOUT ME
1. A FEELING OF GREAT PLEASURE AND HAPPINESS.
2. QUILTER, PATTERN DESIGNER, TEACHER, AND MOTHER.
I was raised on a whole lotta Hank, Patsy, Jesus, and oatmeal.
The way to this gal’s heart? Coffee (followed very closely by biscuits, salted butter, & homemade jam).
I’m a single mom to 2 beautiful young adults who I call Alligator & Mystery. I am a half-empty nester, looking forward to new adventures.
My kids cringe when I say: “Whatever cranks your tractor…” or “…I did the math myself.”
I yell, "Roll Tide!" and "Go Huskies!"
Scrappy quilts & vintage aprons make my heart go pitter-patter.
I dream of the day I can do some front porch sittin’ sipping an ice cold lemonade or a highball of whiskey on the rocks, watching the wind blow, the roses bloom, & chickens peck the ground!
There's nothing finer than the smell of jasmine at dusk & a garden jammed with of peonies, climbing roses & forget-me-nots, & maybe a persimmon tree or two.
There’s always a bottle of white wine & champagne in my fridge. Always because I never open them.
My biggest challenge? Living well with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Second biggest challenge? I'm a technology late adopter. I prefer needle & thread.
Lazy day meal? Air-popped popcorn or peanut butter & saltines. It's a bonus if I can curl up and watch hockey, football, or old Westerns while I snack.
I adore comfort food and Thanksgiving dinner.
I DON’T like chocolate ice cream. It’s just not right.
Pride & Prejudice & Lonesome Dove are my guilty pleasures.
Old Gringo boots make me SWOON. Seriously, step aside coffee, maybe that's the real way to this gal's heart!
I’ve NEVER mastered knitting or keeping secrets.
I’m ALWAYS picked last for Scrabble.
