A little about me.

Hi! My name is Susan Ovard. I live in southeast Idaho, just north of Idaho Falls. My sister and I share a home out in the country. We have two ponds, a lot of trees, a good garden spot, and a homemade greenhouse. We also share with my Lhasa Lily, my sisters doberman Dizzy, and the cat Scamp.

I'm in my late 50's. Mom taught me how to sew when I was about 7 years old. I think it was in self defense. I was ill in the second grade and was home half days and later could not go out and play a lot. So Mom first taught me some simple embroidery stitches and basic hand sewing. My Barbie doll had a LARGE wardrobe(LOL). Later she taught me how to sew on the sewing machine.

Besides embroidery, sewing, and quilting, I do a lot of other crafts. I also do cross stitch, knitting, crochet, etc.

As time goes on, I will post pictures of my quilts and crafts.

Above is a picture of my last quilt as I was deciding where to put each block. If you look closely all the stars are of a "space" themed fabric. It is actually leftovers from another quilt. I used the space fabric for the windows of the Attic Windows quilt pattern. I'll Post a picture later.

My design wall is a sheet thumbtacked over the food storage I share my "Studio" with.
You can see the extra fridge to the right in the picture.

I'll post the story of the studio redo later.
By for now.

  1. Very pretty. I didn't know you were a quilter. Gary and I have several quilts that your mother made. We use them all the time this time of year.
