If idle hands are the devils workshop, there is no fear of that occurring in Kathy Allens cozy home on the west side of Humboldt.
A long-arm quilting machine takes up much of the first floor of her small two-story house, and it often is stitching an intricate pattern.
Kathy, 72, was a California girl much of her life. She moved to Arkansas in 1993 and on to Humboldt about 10 years ago. The Kansas connection was son Greg and wife Pam, who had married and were having babies. Kids are a strong attraction; grandchildren just as much.
