Tongo and I, fall 2010

Hi!  My name is Lori.  I’m a 43-year-old veterinary dermatologist (yes…they really do have those!), a mom to 3 cats, 3 dogs, and 2 horses (and 1 barn cat).  The “unleashed” in the title refers to my control freak nature.  About the only time I’m not in control is when I’m quilting.  I just refuse to let being perfect ruin the process for me.  My mom has quilted for many years but I was only bitten by the quilting bug a few years ago.  Our styles are very different…she hand-quilts everything, I am a machine piecer/quilter.  I’m still very much a beginner, but working on a quilting project really relaxes me.  I love following the quilting blogs and listen to the quilting podcasts on my way to and from work.

I don’t have a ton of time, between my business and my volunteer duties (not to mention, the fur kids keep me busy!), but I’m hoping that this blog will encourage me to make more time for quilting and more “me” time.  There will most likely be posts on things other than quilting, but I still hope you enjoy 🙂  Welcome to quilting unleashed!

  1. Welcome to blogging! I hope you stick with it – I like your style. I am not very good lately at updating my blog, but you are welcome to take a peek if you like 🙂 I am also an animal lover and a bit of a perfectionist/control freak but I find being creative really lowers my anxiety levels so I try to do a little every day. 🙂 Shannon

    • Hi Shannon! I LOVE the name of your blog. I suspect you and I are very similar (except all my children have 4 legs, lol). I also have a cat box in my sewing room because apparently the special room downstairs with all the litter boxes and privacy isn’t quite perfect…and apparently my sewing room/office is. So, I feel your pain 🙂

I love comments :)
