Where did you grow up and where do live now?
I grew up in Montreal, that is where we got married and in 1967 we moved to New York. My husband was transferred with a bank, we lived there in New York for almost 15 years and I loved it. It is a wonderful exciting city to be in. Although we lived on Staten Island in a great neighbourhood. Our children 3 of them went to school there, and two of our children were born there. They have duel citizenship. My husband had the opportunity to work in Toronto and his Mom was getting on in years so we decided to come back to Canada. I found it so difficult for the first few years, it was not like Montreal and so very different than New York. I found it stuffy and difficult to make friends. Our youngest was only 8 months old and having three teenagers it was a challenge finding my way around and two of them in different schools etc. I still miss New York but after 30 years here I have met some wonderful friends.
How long have you been blogging and what made you decide to do it?
I have been blogging since 2008, a friend had a blog and she kept asking me to get one so one day I decided to try it and it was fun. She had been asking me to join facebook but I did make an account but do not like reading all that dumb stuff that people write about such a waste of time (only my opinion). I know millions love it so maybe there is something wrong with me. I love to see the crafts that bloggers do and also I love looking at all the Shabby Shick blogs. I follow more blogs than I can keep up with. I try to post on most but quite frankly I never have that much to say.
What is your crafty talent? When did you start doing your craft?
Bunny's Latte QuiltI won a ribbon for my Latte Quilt it was all done with machine embroidery. I also taught sewing and embroidery classes at my dealers. I enjoyed that so much always fun to see the students create. My latest quilt I am doing now is a Double Wedding ring with applique (I always hated applique) I am enjoying the process although it is very time consuming. It is almost finished. I love the process of starting and creating a new quilt. I have several quilt that have to be quilted yet. I do at times get a long armed quilter to quilt some of my quilts they do a wonderful job. Whew I am long winded and probably lost your interest by now.
My weight has been a life time albatrose I have had issues all my life. Years ago I went to Elaine Power and did the calories don't count thing. Then gained the 67 pounds back then WW and once again all back. I even tried Nutrisystem, not sure it is the same now as it was then. I lost all the weight with WW in 2002 and decided that this time I was not going to gain it back. So when I get to the 10-12 pound mark, I get it off. I have about 6 pounds I want to get off it is a few less than I need to but that is my goal hopefully I can managed that. It is so nice to belong to Steph's blog to encourage all of us to keep on track. Life is like a roll of toilet tissue the closer to the end the faster it rolls. In other words we all want to be healthy.
Tell us your favorite, daily blog reads.
I had a favorite blog it was one of my sweetest friends, the gal who taught me to quilt. I lost her in June and miss seeing her and having her inspire me. I just love to pop from one blog to another. Everyone in blogland is fun.
