2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

January 7, 2013

BLOG AWARDS...

...in December Lynn of You SewGirl awarded me two beautiful blog awards.  Another sewing blogger also sent me the same awards around the same time, but I cannot remember who she was.  So sorry that it has taken me this long to acknowledge receipt.





Here are the rules:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you.
2.  Add the One Lovely Blog Award/The Very Inspiring Blogger Award to your post.
3.  Share 7 things about yourself.
4.  Pass the award on to 10 other bloggers that inspire you.
5.  Include the rules.
6.  Inform your nominees.

Seven Things About Me
 1.  I have just a tiny bit of OCDism.  I can't stand it when objects are not straight;  i.e., chairs in a row, pictures on a wall etc.

2.  I am the oldest of four siblings.  I find it amazing that for generations everyone in my family who has had children has had either one child or four - really, I researched this.
 
3.  My body craves dark, leafy green vegetables and I must have them at least two or three times a week.  Good thing right?

4. The majority of my friends are at least 10 years younger than I am.  I never plan it that way - it just always happens.  I actually like having younger friends - they keep my thinking fresh.

5.  I've always secretly aspired to be a writer - there, my secrets out!

6.  I have NEVER traveled outside of the continental United States.  When I was in high school I wanted to be a flight attendant so I could see the world - for free. (I also thought that I wanted to have 12 children - inspired by the book "Cheaper by the Dozen".  I had dreams of Spain, France and England.  Neither of those things happened and I'm o.k. with it now.

 7.  I'm a cookbook collector (at last count I had over 300), but never mind sending me any.  Since I've started back sewing fabric/pattern shopping has taken the place of collecting cookbooks.  I rarely buy any now, but I still MUST have my yearly copy Southern Living Annual Cookbook. I own every copy of it, and actually subscribe so it comes automatically - except for this year.  I need to contact Oxmoor House about my missing 2012 cookbook that hasn't come yet!
