I would love to meet Helen Keller. I have always been fascinated by her.

I will be emailing you shortly for your address! Not able to find a email address for you!

Kim Stewart you are a no reply commenter please contact me!

Welcome "To In The Boon Docks"

Hi! I am Lisa, a Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, veteran, and an artist in training (always training). I live In a rural area of West Virginia, USA, with my husband, our 8 year old grandson and my Mother. Our home is protected by 3 dogs, 8 chickens, a squirrel, and miscellaneous deer (they live in the woods). We grow, can, freeze, both fruits and vegetables. I also make jams and jellies. I will admit I am a awful cook but my husband is a culinary student and an awesome cook!

I love to blog, blog hop, swap, sew, quilt, crochet, knit, and just about any DIY project. I am a fabric and Aurifil thread lover! Hopefully, the things I write about here will interest you and keep you entertained.
If so, please follow.


I want to thank Sew Mama Sew for coordinating Giveaway Day for the second time this year. When I first started sewing I was so encouraged by the site that I started "In The Boon Docks"! I enjoy making and giving things away. Each month, Aurifil sponsors Stitch On Prints (Hand stitching on printed fabrics to enhance the designs and giveaway Aurifil 12 wt. thread) and the Fat Quarter Shop sponsors Quilters Candy Unwrapped (See a whole line of fabric in one photo with a chance to win Moda Candy Charms) giveaways! (Just click on the link to learn more about either program)!

It makes me feel good to encourage people to take a few minutes for themselves to create something. It may only be one block but it is time to yourself. A spark of creativity! So little time these days for yourself when you work, go to school, be a wife and a mother! I am amazed at women who somehow fit all these into their lives on a daily basis. Take a break and sew a little! Sign up to follow on the lefthand side!
