Hello, my name is Linda. I hoard fabric.
I’m a Mom of two and I love to do anything with my hands.
I live in Wisconsin.
I love to read.
I learned to crochet when I was about 6 years old thanks to my grandma and my mom.
I learned to knit when I was pregnant with my first son. That was in 1998. I’ve now made zero knitty things.
I’m slowly learning embroidery. And by slowly, I mean I’ve stitched exactly 1/4 of one thing.
My favorite crafty thing to do now is quilt. Actually, I’m not so crazy about the quilting part. I do like to piece and bind though.
I love collecting other people’s fabric (like, as in their scraps and strips). I might even be willing to make a trade -you can have anything that’s mine. Well, maybe not the kids (they’re keepers); my husband though, he’s negotiable.
I am the 5th of 6 kids. The first 5 of us were born within 7 years. Ouch.
My mom is tougher than your mom.
I have a husband, two sons, a male dog, a male cat, and male fish. I’m seeing a theme here…
My second son weighed 10 lbs., 1 oz. at birth. Nothing scares me.
I LOVE Honey Comb cereal and have been known to eat a whole box in one sitting.
I don’t feel so great after I’ve eaten a whole box of Honey Comb cereal in one sitting.
I’ve been known to cry after eating McDonald’s food. Happy Meal my ass.
I never argue with people who prepare my fast food.
I have a healthy fear of guns. I used to want to be a cop. See 1st sentence.
I am a serial volunteer. I am a procrastinator. Believe it or not, the two are related.
