Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I'm a nature lover who loves my small city of Boston for the access it gives me to international cuisine, music venues and general culture.  As a Bostonian, the Red Sox naturally own a piece of my heart but I have managed to avoid other sports obsessions.  I work at a college library where I can indulge my love of books and whose students occasionally acquaint me with new music.  Said students both keep me young and make me feel older than I actually am, sometimes simultaneously.  I share a home with my 3 legged cat named Loch who enjoys interfering with my craft projects but prefers cuddling on the couch and watching movies.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: beadwork, various papercraft and crochet. I dabble with stencils and felt plushies and have recently rediscovered fun with Shrinky Dinks.
Crafts I Want To Learn: knitting, needle felting, and embroidery, maybe tatting
