Week 17: Here Comes Mama Spark
Hi everyone and welcome to my week!
That would be week 17.
My name is Pamela Lincoln, but I am better known as Mama Spark.
I thought I would introduce myself and let you know a little bit about who I am.
I am married to the love of my life going on 33 years now.
He is a retired pilot and an avid fisherman.
We have three children.
Our eldest daughter is getting married in October.
She owns a small 10 acre farm and raises chickens, turkeys and peafowl.
She owns a "house peahen" named Beep.
If you check out my feed you will see lots of photos of Beep and her friends.
My middle daughter works as a fisheries biologist for the state of NC.
She has a cat named Mitch and is pretty much obsessed with him.
I am trying to convince her she needs to learn how to sew.
My son lives nearby and works as a service writer at a local car dealership.
He is the love of our dog, Abby's life!
Me? I work in science, doing research at the University of Michigan.
I graduated from Michigan State University.
We are big animal lovers and recently lost 2 of our cats, Mosen ,
We have 2 cats left, Autumn and Hallie.
I have always sewn, and quilting was very interesting to me.
I took a class when my daughter was a baby, but just did not have time to do it justice.
Many years later, while at swim practice, my friend, Ellen was stitching down her binding.
We started talking and there was no looking back for me.
I was hooked!
I've been quilting for about 13 years now.
I have had a few things published on the Moda Bake Shop.
I have a few things published in some magazines.
Mostly I sew for friends and family.
They seem to keep me busy with weddings and babies, LOL.
Here are a few of my recent projects, prior to taking this blog over.
Pouch for a swap
Older UFO, finally done!
