About Me

badge

I am the mother of three. I dream of doing many things but never seem to have time to do much more than to keep the household running smoothly. I love sewing, crocheting, doing crossword puzzles, playing piano and visiting with family and friends.

Favorite Books

I'm a huge Jane Austen fan. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite. I've read everything written by James Herriot. He's the British vet who has written voluminously about his real-life experiences. I've read Abel's Island many times. Some might call it a children's book but I delight in how the author puts words together.

Favorite Movies and Television

My favorite life-time movie is The Sound of Music. It is the first movie I ever saw. Others I delight in reviewing are: Witness, The Winslow Boy, Dear Frankie, Roman Holiday and You've Got Mail.
Special thanks go to my British friends for Doc Martin--my newest addiction. What a delightful program. If anybody knows when they're starting on season 4, please let me know.

Favorite Crafts

I love to crochet. It's pure fun for me to just sit and crochet but I don't often have the time. I learned to do heirloom sewing about 15 years ago and of all sewing projects, that gives me the most satisfaction. I've dabbled in quilting.

Things I'd Like to Receive

  1. ♥ anything handmade by you is special to me;
  2. ♥ practical gifts are much preferred over trinkets;
  3. ♥ office supplies (especially Sharpies-ultra fine);
  4. ♥ hankies (second hand or new)--I collect them;
  5. ♥ Body Shop products;
  6. ♥ interesting or unusual marbles for my little boy;
  7. ♥ Big Hunk candy bars (nougat with peanuts)--we can't get them in Canada;
  8. ♥ anything with vintage lace on it;
  9. ♥ Please don't think I'm crazy, but I love washlines. Send me a picture of your laundry blowing in the breeze and I'll love it!; and
  10. ♥ your tried and true recipes.

Response: I'm glad you liked them. I used UTEE for the finish. I found out about it from the amazing crafters here of course. There is a thread about it somewhere in the forums. I will look for it and pm you probably tomorrow or the day after.

Oh my goodness! I think I completely forgot to thank you for the beautiful doily you sent me for the $5 profile surprise tag. It's not because I didn't love it, I promise, I did!! It arrived safely and I treasure it! I have no patience for thread crochet myself...

Lenna on Nov 26, 2008:

Lisa, I feel so lucky! My forum tag surprises are so wonderful. I appreciate the sparkly card and am wild about the little snowflakes you crocheted for me!! During the Christmas holidays, I decorate my dining room in frost kissed wonders. Your magical little creations will take center stage and hang off my chandelier. THANKS SO VERY MUCH!
