About Me

A Girl in Paradise
Hello, my name is Ann and I am A Girl in Paradise.  We all have our own definition of “paradise”.  Some see it as beautiful sunsets and long walks on the beach.  I see it as the freedom to express myself in the things that I like to make.  Of course, living where the sun is always shining doesn’t hurt.

I am a wife.  I married my high school sweetheart a lifetime ago.  We traveled the world together, and then settled down in Florida to set roots and start a family.

I am a mother.  I have 3 wonderful kids ages 10, 8, and 3. They keep me very busy, and I love every minute of it.

I am a quilter.  My mother taught me to sew when I was young. By the time I was in high school, I was making most of my own clothes,but over the years, quilting has become my passion.  I love the idea that I can create beautiful works of art with fabric, that I am able to challenge myself, and that there are always new things to learn.
