of some kind, working her way through most needlecraft hobbies
over the years. She feels indebted to her maternal grandmother,
Cynthia Rasmussen, for passing on her talents and love of
Vancouver Island in Canada has been Eileen's spiritual home

been able to live there for almost 20 years. She fills her
days with designing and creating quilts.

her with all the serenity she craves. She happily states that life
just couldn't be any better than this.
