My name is Amanda Jennings, aka Mrs. McPorkchop! 

This blog is my online home where I post about my life, what inspires me and what I create.

I’m originally from Massachusetts but I now live in Northern California with my husband. I love living here, I’m surrounded by orchards and sunshine. We recently bought our first home together and I'm sure I'll be sharing a lot about it!

I spend my days working on my pattern company, The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, with my best friend Ashleigh. We sell super cute cross stitch patterns and it’s a blast! We recently launched our wholesale side of our business so needlework shops can now stock our patterns! It's my full time job and I enjoy learning new things about running a small business.

I adore making quilts for our home. Some of my quilts have been featured in books, magazines and on various websites. If I haven’t quilted it myself, my friend Lindsay has quilted it for me. I adore her and I love having her work on quilts for me.

Other things I enjoy are knitting socks, reading, bird watching, eating candy, gardening, paper crafts and taking photos. 

I do make a tiny amount of income from this blog as an amazon.com affiliate. I like to link to things such as books I'm currently reading & music I'm currently listening too. :) If I do advertise for something, you can be assured it's something I genuinely love, as blogging is not my full time job nor primary source of income.
