Hi! I'm Diana and I am married to a wonderful man whose love of amusement parks has given us many adventures together. He is the one who gave me the nickname "Red Delicious" and where I got the inspiration for my blog title. We have a soon to be 7-year-old son who always keeps us on our toes.
I have a masters degree in theater design and production - specifically stage management and I was lucky enough to work professionally in New York City and in regional theaters across the country for over 10 years. Ever since I was little, I've always had a creative streak and a need to create things! I no longer spend my time backstage, instead opting to work in guest services at an amazing theater arts facility in downtown Orlando. I work mostly evenings and weekends which allows me to volunteer at my son's school and quilt during the day. It's the perfect balance of work and home.
Quilting is a fairly new endeavor for me but like anything I decide to put my mind to, it becomes an obsession to learn as much as possible and develop new skills. I made my first quilt (Puppy Patchwork) back in August of 2012. I just made up a pattern as I went along based on a cute fabric I found with puppies on it. I had it all pieced together in a matter of days and it sat for 4 months waiting for me to get up the nerve to quilt it myself. I got a new sewing machine that Christmas (a BabyLock Symphony) which had all the bells and whistles for me to tackle the job. With a little bit of practice, I was free motion quilting in no time and completed my son's quilt in January of 2013. I've been plugging away ever since.
Me and my Red Delicious family --
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet and I hope you to see you back soon.
