About Me

Hello, I’m Jennifer Skinnell.  I’m an author, travel blogger, and quilter.  I’m the mother of two wonderful adult children, and wife of a wonderfully supportive husband, and a grandma to two sweet little boys. We live in Northern Virginia.  I’ve had many different jobs over the years, from starting out as a legal secretary to working in a fabric store when my children were younger, to a rewarding job of teaching preschool for nine years.  I learned something from each job I had, but I’ve always wanted to be a quilter.  So in 2015 I took the plunge and purchased a long arm quilting machine for the quilter part.

However, life is always evolving, and so is my business life. I have decided to close the quilting part of my business. However, I still have my Photo Gallery on my site as I’m quite proud of every quilt I’ve been able to make for my clients and family.

My other lifelong dream has been to be a writer.  I write a blog called The Rambling Quilter.  When I began writing this blog, it was my way of writing about events that made one think. Now the blog has evolved as well, and it is now a travel blog about experiences my husband and I have traveling in our 41 ft. Grand Design Fifth Wheel RV we’ve affectionately named “Beauty”, because we pull her with a Ford F-350 we call “The Beast”.

I have also published four novels on Amazon.com. One Sweet Development, Patience For Love,  It’s Time To Love Again and The Inn at Hope Springs are the first four in my Hope Springs Romance Series. Check out the links for all the details and where to order your copy.

I hope you enjoy my site, and thank you for visiting!

Love and Happy Reading,
