About Me

Hello, I’m Jennifer Skinnell.  I’m an author, travel blogger, and quilter.  I’m the mother of two wonderful adult children, wife of a wonderfully supportive husband, and a grandma to two sweet little boys.  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.

However, life is always evolving, and so is my business life. I closed the quilting part of my business in 2019 and sold my longarm machine. 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.

I am the author of the Hope Springs Romance Series, which is available on Amazon in eBook, Kindle Unlimited, and paperback. One Sweet Development, Patience For Love,  It’s Time To Love Again, The Inn at Hope Springs, and A Grandmother’s Wish tell the story of the women of Hope Springs and how their love for quilting and each other get them through life’s challenges and relationships. Check out the links for all the details and where to order your copy.

I also 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 is our 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”. We now live full-time on the road, which gives me lots of experiences to draw on for my other great love.

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

Love and Happy Reading,

Jennifer
