The Versatile Blogger Award & A Few Other Things

Imagine my surprise when Wendy at Ravenwood Whimzies gave me the versatile blogger's my first. :0) Any way I'm suppose to share seven facts with you about myself. Oh.....where to start...I'm such a odd duck...LOL. Okay so here goes....please... oh please...don't let me scare you away...LOL. :0)
1. I'm a mother of a 23 month old...and I never thought I'd be so happy and so scared. Each day is a just never know what he's going to come up with.
2. Now I know this is going to seem strange to you all but I love watching Korean historical dramas... off Drama Fever. Yes, I can read subtitles and stitch...never thought I could do that. I find Korean history/culture so very interesting.
3. Okay here is another strange fact about myself... I love Gothic/industrial/metal.... yeah I'm a rocking stitcher. Now in all fairness I love all music.... I'll listen to just about everything except rap music.
4. I want to live in Scotland. My family is Scottish/Irish... so when we went to Scotland on our honeymoon several years back I felt like I had arrived home. I've never felt that way about any place I've ever visited before (the above photos are ones I took on our trip....Edinburgh City & The Three Sisters).
5. I don't only collect primitives and antiques.... I also collect Halloween goodies and artist bears.
This sweetie fits both categories.... this is Francis Feline and Rusty the mouse he's a creation by Lori Ann Corelis "The spotted Hare".
6. My mother taught me how to cross-stitch when I was a teenager...then in my early 20's my good friend Anne taught me how to quilt. I've been doing both ever since...though I've had a break from both now and again.
7. I suffer from IBS....'s one of those things that no one really knows what's going on with your angry gut. Let me tell you I wish they had an answer because having dizzy spells and feeling sick just sucks. You pretty much have to cut any kind of flavor out and eat bland food. Well I love spicy and I love COFFEE!!!! I guess one has to decide...feeling like junk or drinking her coffee....there are days where I just want the coffee....oh well.
So there you seven insightful things about me the odd duck... LOL. :0)
Now here are a few finishes. These two kitties are birthday will go to our little one on his birthday next month and the other to another sweet boy. This was a pattern out of the new Prims issue. It was a sweet primitive cat pattern I'm sure I'll make a few of these for us adults....this had to be kid safe.
Last of all is my love pinkeep & heart. It was part of my Stacy Nash kit club... I try my hardest to keep up with the kits along with doing other things. Well that is all for now my seems like a long post. I hope you enjoyed your visit...come back soon. :0)
