Hi Bloggers.
I just want to say 'Thank you' for taking the time to come in and sit awhile to read my blog.
My name is Judith and I am a sewing quilter. I totally enjoy sewing, and I started out making clothes and then went into quilts. My fingers get itchy for pins and fabric. The hum of the machine makes my heart sing.
I am a self taught quilter and whatever else I do. Garden, blog, cook, and even do some home canning.
I am a grandmother of five, one girl, four boys. The oldest is ten, and the youngest is sixteen weeks.
I homeschool my grand daughter who is the oldest. We are into the fourth year of playing school.
I hope to get to know more of you as this year continues and I remember to keep the fire going under this pan. I have a lot of pans on the stove all the time, and some times I forget which one has fire under it.
I began blogging a couple of years ago, because a  friend gave me the idea, as well as my sister. So much to share with others when others have the time to sit awhile.
I am glad to be a part of this Grow Your Blog event.
I  started an Etsy shop so I can help at home and sew at the same time. If you want to see what is there click on the link, or on the button on the side.
 I hope to share with you what makes my heart sing, which is what I create when I get to SEW.
Again THANK YOU for taking the time to stop and read thru my blog.
To further thank you I’m giving away a coin purse made by me from a fabric I have on hand.  This giveaway is open to anyone. In order to win, leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite fabric is (floral, geometric, solid, novelty, etc (please be sure you are not a no-reply on Blogger).  For a second chance to win, you can become a follower and leave a comment telling me you have done so. Winner will be chosen on February 15th.  Good Luck! 
the oldest to the youngest~~~ joy!

Winter in SoCal With Chocolate and Carmel

Okay, today in SoCal it is about 74* outside, but in my house is 67*. Go figure. Plaster walls stay cool longer and takes awhile to warm up. But outside is wonderful. I used to call it mailman weather. lol That can say where I used to be.
But today I am sewing up a storm. No wind today, just calm mellow breezes blowin' thru the window panes.
I have been working at getting all the ins and outs of my newest adventure, ETSY.
It is a lot of work. Well for me it is. Between homeschooling and babysitting and working and.....well you get the picture. A woman's work is never done. I just keep adding pans on the fire.
So with this new adventure, I found a way to show more of what I am doing. More to be learned I am sure, a little at a time.
Today I found I can share my blog in my shop about page, yay!.So I am sharing what is new there.
This is what I added today.

I envision Chocolate and Carmel goodies.
See more in the shop by clicking on the ESTY link off to the side. Share with your friends and family and follow me and like my facebook page Everestranchcreations
I can use all the help I can get. 
Thank you reading my blog and take care. Visit again and see what else is new.
