I love learning and doing new things.
I will expound upon these as I have more time.
Things that are important to me.
- My Family
- My Faith
- My Friends
- My Talents
Things that I most like to do. Unfortunately, as my husband says, I have an "all or nothing" mentality. I cannot seem to focus on more than one of these items at once and when I get into it I become sleep deprived and almost manic. I love doing what I love to do, and I love to do lots of things. Right now my focus is on my cross stitch. Just joined the challenge to finish 15 WIP's in this next year. Just what I needed to get me going.
- Needlework: I have
100, 150,200+ designs that I MUST DO someday with the list growing every day. I plug along a little at a time in between my other loves. I also design needlework, embroidery as well as cross-stitch, and as soon as I can "get around to it" I will get more of them published. I just keep finding too many that I want to do from other designers. (Where does one draw the line?)
- Humanitarian Work: My stash of fabrics fills two rooms and I am constantly buying more. Then I get overwhelmed and have to donate much of it to the LDS Humanitarian Society so they can have others help me finish it. I just can't pass up good quality fabric at $1.00 a yard. There are so many people in need and I love dreaming of some little child in one of my brightly colord quilts, gowns, or jumpers.
- Food Storage/Emergency Preparedness: I wrote and illustrated my own book that "almost" got published. However, it was right AFTER Y2k and the publishers felt people were no longer interested in food storage. It is a pretty good book though (with my own illustrations), even though I do say so myself...Maybe one day...
- Genealogy/Family History: Enjoy collecting histories and old photos of my ancestors particularly.
- Art: I have a degree in Design from Brigham Young University
- Quilting: Started with doing miniature quilts and am gradually expanding to regular sized quilts. (Just one more thing I don't have time to do.)
