About Me

I live in Northern Ontario with my wonderful and patient husband, and two laid back Dandie Dinmont Terriers Sophie and Molly. Our daughter Sarah was born at home in Feb 2012.

My quilting skills are beginner level. I have a full size round the world quilt top ready to quilt that is aging in my closest and a baby quilt on the go at the moment.

I also enjoy cross stitch, gardening, long distance walking (6 half marathons so far). Looking forward to meeting new people!

I am a fierce breast cancer survivor (Diagnosed January 2015.)

Likes

Dogs, Cats, Little People, The Outdoors, My kitchen when it is clean, cooking, being with family and friends, bright colours, jewel tones, batiks, and patterns, books that make you think, fog, lightening, poetry, The CBC, counted cross stitch, Fat Quarters, scrap cotton fabric, scrap flannel, DMC floss, tea, hot chocolate, postage stamps of animals, birds, flowers, art work; blank postcards.

Dislikes

Chick Lit, stupid people, parents who insist on dressing their girls all in pink and purple day in, day out, people who show up late to dinner, coffee

Countries I have travelled to

Australia Austria Belgium x3 Chile England x2 France x3 Germany Holland x 2 Italy Ireland Japan Scotland x2 Slovenia Slovakia Switzerland x2 United Sates (mostly nothern states many times plus LA and Miami airports) Vatican

Postage Stamps Please!

I love getting postage stamps from around the world. Please use stamps on your packages as opposed to the print out stickers from the post office when possible. I am then able to collect and swap these with others!

Emily! Your sister's wedding sounds like it was a blast! My husband and I are WWII reenactors and we've attended quite a few events all dressed for in our WWII finest --- though we have yet to be at a WWII themed wedding! HOW COOL! ~Gabi

Hi! I hope You're doing great! I once participated in one of your "short poem on a PC" swaps, it was lovely, but I missed the later ones, because I felt embarrassed to send hand-made PCs each time ... now I finally have some real PCs :) Please drop me a line when You host the next one! Best Wishes, Shreela.
