-After more than 8 years collecting and sewing together original WW2 patches, I finally completed my #1 and #2 quilts that had their first viewing in the 2013 San Diego Quilt Show.

-I love making things with my hands: woodworking, sewing, painting and taking photos.

-Since my father has been my hometown's American Legion Commander for the past 15 years, I started collection National Convention medals from 1919. I will be coming out with the "First 100 Years" in 2019 as a showcase of all of the memorabilia of the American Legion National convention.
