Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I'm Mom to 3 - 21 & 19-yr-old girls and a 17-yr-old boy and Grandma to 1 little girl. I recently returned to full time work after being home with my kids for the last 10 years - Don't ask about the novels I have been writing during that time. I am beginning to doubt they will ever get finished.

My husband and I have been married for 23 years and work together at the same company programming pension calculators.

I love to embroider - I must have a project with me at all times. I really love teeny tiny embroidery. I have also fallen in love with quilting - crazy quilting, HST, any style of 9 patch, anything that uses jelly rolls (fussy cutting isn't my favorite task) and anything featuring blues! Love blue!

Favorite colors. I have a slightly strange obsession with the color blue. Just seeing it makes me happy. If I could, I would paint every surface in my home blue or white. I also love blue with black, and blue with grey and of course blue with other shades of blue. my favorite blues are along the lines of indigo, navy and cobalt. Then again, faded indigo is gorgeous and any blue you would find in any part of the ocean (okay, that really is all blues).

My Favorite Crafts To Do: embroidery, sewing, stencil cutting
Crafts I Want To Learn: crochet, crazy quilting, quilling, paper cuts

My Favorite Projects Made by Me:
12 projects can be listed here

Current and/or All Time Favorite TV Shows: firefly, psych, NCIS, perception, monk
