valerie tagged me to share 7 random facts about myself, so here goes (and just so i don't bore you to tears, i'm also including quilts that were made pre-blog):
  1. i am terrified of heights, we have freeway on ramps where i live that make me really nervous. i feel like i'm on a roller coaster--my heart starts beating and my mind starts racing.
  2. i love batter, especially pancake batter...my mom used to make me "nettie special's" when i was younger. a nettie special is a pancake about the size of a golf ball, that is only cooked on one side. MMM...I still love them.
  3. i am afraid of cats--i know that sounds strange...i grew up on a farm, our cats were somewhat feral. one in particular used to chase me. my sister played "rodeo clown" for me to distract that crazy cat while i ran inside.
  4. i have never sent a text message. i don't even know how. i'm not a big cell phone user.
  5. i love to be at home. yes, i do enjoy an occasional outing, but home is my favorite place to be.
  6. i enjoy vacumning...now i wouldn't just vacumn for the fun of it, but of all the household chores i do each week, vacumning is my fave.
  7. i married my high school sweetheart, and i still feel very lucky to have him.

  7. What fun things, and it was so cute to use a quilt for each answer. Loved that touch. Is that 2nd quilt a rough edge quilt? I love the colors. I love all of them but that is my favorite.

  8. Loved looking at the quilts - the orange and pink is my fave! I send text messages all the time - because it's the easiest way to get ahold of my kids!

  12. Thoroughly enjoyed the quilt show along with the facts.
    My Moggie girl would love to show you how loving cats can be, but she understands how you can be frightened.
    Since it is just on midnight and she is already on the bed waiting..tis time I joined her.
    Happy quilting.

  16. I'm with you, I love being at home. Probably has to do with the fact that my sewing machine is here. :) ...and vacuuming is probably my fave, too. Beutiful quilts!

  18. What a neat post and those quilts added just the right touch to it. The quilts are gorgeous, btw. I especially like the yellow/gold and pink one. The first one, though, is pretty too. It looks really soft. :-)

  19. lovely to read something about you, especially laced with gorgeous quilts. I hate the sound of vaccuum cleaners, I run to the other end of the flat when anyone gets the vac out....
