About the Author
Like most of the southern women of her own generation… Kathy Shaw believes herself to be a complex mix of all the attributes of these characters. (Her friends often just call her a character…and leave it at that). She will tell you that she has been tested, and has weathered a few storms in her life so far. And here is what she has learned:
“Faith, family and friends can get you through anything…but stitching will keep you sane!”
She is a natural leader...as the eldest of seven siblings she was thrust into that role at an early age…and just continued as she later become a mother…then a grandmother.
Her first job was during the 10th grade at a summer work program for under-privileged children…and she has worked all of her life from that time on…until 2009 when she retired. Her longest employment was almost 30 years as a civilian working with the Army…which took her to Europe and all over the United States.
