About Me

I'm Mandy.  I'm a quilter. 

{I know, it sounds like the beginning of an AA meeting.} 

I'm a little quirky.  I smile a lot.  I also cry a lot.  I love to be outside.  I drive a Subaru.  I try to take care of my body by working out and eating (relatively) healthy food.  I love my God.  I love other people, even though I'm a little shy at first.  I love to make things.  I don't wear much makeup.  I'm an Auburn grad.  War Eagle!

I started sewing in 2008 and quilting during the summer of 2009.  In 2010, I started this blog.  I use this space to write about what I'm sewing, share pictures, and interact with others who love creating things as much as I do. 

What's with the blog title?  Well, I'm from Alabama (Dixie) and I'm putting my work up on this blog, even though it makes me a little nervous (Chicken).  You know, the fear of rejection.  I've got it.  Plus, I love the song.

If you have any other questions about me, feel free to ask!
