Here's Katie (on the right). She's another one of my favorite dogs. Incredibly bright, well-behaved and lovable dog. Her owner, Doug, (on the left) is all those things too. I love them both. Katie stays with us when Doug goes off to that wickedly evil Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
