I am a wife, mom, designer, daughter, sister. On any given day I might be tackling any one of those roles.
My name is Joanna Figueroa. I am a textile designer, a quilt pattern designer and the owner of Fig Tree Quilts. I run the business with the help of my right hand man, my husband, the encouragement of my children and the busy hands of a whole team of wonderful ladies [and a gentleman]. And that's just my second job! My first job is being a mom to my three kids, Ben-8, Zack-6 and Ella-2...
Between these 2 loves of mine, there isn't much time left for other things, including doing the laundry and doing my hair in the morning. I am currenlty trying to do a better job of balancing all of the things I feel passionate about. The list is long.
things i enjoy today include exploring little towns with my family, going to flea markets, gardening especially in the spring, taking photos of my kids, painting & sketching, pottery- both making it and buying it [my husband says i have an unnatural love of bowls!], reading sentimental books about life in small towns, putting my daughters hair in ponytails. if you ask me the same question tomorrow, i might have a diffrent list of answers. oh, yeah, i love a good glass of iced tea any time of the day!
