I'm a foster mom with Heartland Humane Society based in O'Fallon, MO. In my other life, I'm a quiltmaker, quilting teacher, long-arm quilter, and do programs and lectures for quilt guilds. John and I have one daughter, Laura, who is married and living with her husband, Jason, in Chicago. I have two grandcats, Dexter and Zelda. Laura and her friend, Sallie, have the Vintage Kitchen Recipe blog. If you like cooking, please visit their site.
