Well. This is it. I am officially blogging. Welcome to my little world in Northern New Mexico. I decided to start with a few pics of my beloved sewing room.

I am a woman of color, a midwife, and a mother of four. I am an Executive Director and a Graduate student. I am a beader, knitter, and singer, a dancer and a quilter. I am a 19-year survivor of childhood sexual trauma and incest and an inter-generational survivor of cultural genocide. My cultural identity is important to me and central to who I am as a lover of the Earth. I have walked across the country, traveled on a circus bus playing a tap-dancing bird, recorded a CD, and started a doula program. I have given birth at home four times and first-held hundreds of wet babies in my humble hands. I am a proud Filipina-American. I am a proud queer. I am also a proud wife to a beautiful man named Mateo.
I am excited that I finally got this started and I look forward to being able to be part of the great blog community of creative folks out here. I hope some of you follow along on my blog about my Quilting and healing journey.
