I've been tagged

by LennaHere are the simple rules to being tagged:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs

so here goes in no particular order ..........

1. I am a pharmacist. have been for a little while now. lets see, oh ya it will be 25 years in 2008!!! holy &*^%$ where does time go??

2. I have 2 gorgeous delightful darling daughters. my greatest creations ever!! just thinking of them makes my heart swell with love. They are on their own now so when I see them I want to gobble them up just like when they were babies.

3. I'm engaged. for over 3 years now. 2008 WILL be the year.

4.I never work on just one project at a time. I always have many on the go at once. I am trying very hard to finish most though.

5. I can't leave a surface uncovered. It just happens.I can clean the coffee table and in what seems like mere seconds- magazines, notes,books, fabric, newspaper, the odd coffee mug, folded laundry appear. Its like magic, not good magic. good magic would be if things disappeared with equal ease.

6. I want to write a book one day.

7. I am usually very happy & extremely grateful for my life.

hey that wasn't so bad. not much weird stuff. sorry

do I know 7 people I can tag? here goes - Melissa, Nadine,Myrna apparently I don't.

snow day

Here in Southern Ontario we had a good winter storm over the weekend with lots of snow. at least a couple of feet. the best part is getting to stay indoors all day guilt free (well yes this is something I do at least once a week - most Sundays and occasionally from Friday am through to Monday am.)
A good change to finish a few projects for Christmas gifts. There is very little chance the recipient will see this as she has a strong dislike for computers and wouldn't own one except she is in college. Yup we are talking about my youngest daughter. I won't have to ban her from the blog like some people!!
anywho this is a little wallhanging for my tree-loving daughter.

A piece of hand-dyed fabric from my course in Kingston last summer. The centre stitching is machine embroidered from a design made on 4D Sketch by Laura Kemshall from her journal Thr3fold.
It may look familiar as it is very similar to the pillow Laura made for Quilting Arts magazine.
I don't have very much hand-dyed fabric so I used a commercial fabric for the binding. I like the way it looks like looking up through a tree full of leaves. there is a tiny bit of bronzy gold in the binding that ties into the painted leaves.

sometimes a quiz says it all.....

You Are Kermit

Hi, ho! Lovable and friendly, you get along well with everyone you know.
You're a big thinker, and sometimes you over think life's problems.
Don't worry - everyone know's it's not easy being green.
Just remember, time's fun when you're having flies!

The only TV show I made a point of watching while in University--- The Muppets. The only stuffed toy I still own - Kermit. My only kitschy garden ornament - Kermit.
what else is there to say? oh ya KERMIT RULES!!!
Hey Mel I didn't cheat either.
