A BRIEF REQUEST:  Please, if I neglect to send something from a game or a tag, I would greatly appreciate a gentle nudge.  I appear to be more scattered than I'd like to be and I would never intentionally NOT SEND.  Thanks!

I work in a public library and love to read.  I am a writer of poetry and short stories.  I'm the mom of two beautiful young women.  I've been married to their dad for almost 40 years & he still makes me laugh.  We met when we started a band with two other guys.

I love music from the 60s and 70s, anything from motown to the beatles and beyond, but I like more contemporary stuff too.  I'm a fan of almost all music, exceptions being twangy country and disrespectful rap. 

I tend to read literary fiction most of the time.  I sometimes like biographies and memoirs.  In general I love books.  That's probably why I work in a library!  If I had to choose one "favorite" book, it would be "The Little Prince."  There is just so much in it.

Some of my all time favorite films are Casa Blanca and The Wizard of Oz.  I love all of the films that paired Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.  I love the old "thin man" movies.  I'm a very big Hitchcock fan.  As far as more contemporary films, some of my favorites are The Point (an animated film with music by Harry Nilson and narrated by Ringo Starr), Mirrormask (if you haven't seen it yet, RENT IT NOW,) Amelie, Rocky Horror Picture Show ("Oh, Brad!") and movies by the Coen Brothers.

I watch almost no network television because I find most of it to be pablum, but I am a fan of Dexter,True Blood, Breaking Bad and Pokey's Quilting Arts Show, as well as Nurse Jackie, The Big C, and recently started watching "Girls"

I love quilting and have recently gotten into trading quilties.  I enjoy making and trading ATCs, although I haven't done any ATC trades in a while.  I made a Little Prince matchbox for a trade and a few dotee dolls (they are totally fun!)  My newest favorite thing to do is hand dye fabrics . . . oh, what beautiful things you can get!

Favorite colors:  Magenta, Red, Purple, Turquoise (there aren't really any colors that I DON'T like.)   I love coffee (wouldn't you expect that from a Seattlite?) and chocolate.

Favorite beasts:  cats (both domestic and wild,) llamas, rabbits, fancy chickens, again it's easier to say what I don't like than what I do . . . not into snakes.

Please don't send me religious stuff.  I have a sister who is "born again" and that's enough.

A few things I strongly believe in:  Being kind and respectful to all living things (yes, even snakes.)  Organ donation - because it saved my life when my kids were 5 & 10.  Sending all swaps.  Rating the swaps I receive.

I grew up on the shores of Lake Superior and so I love large bodies of water.  I've lived quite a number of places (though always in the U.S.) and the ones I've loved best have been the ones near water.

Comment: I don't believe I've seen this block before and I like it. This is the 16th block that will not go into a 4x4 square throw/wall quilt with sashing that I think will be black (but maybe red) And I'm anxious to get it put together -- this weekend, I hope.

Comment: This is perfect. The 20th block. Now I have to decide what to use for stripping between them and they'll sew up quickly -- although it may take a long time to do the quilting.

Comment: Thank you. I like the Bulgarian puzzle and will probably managed to use it. The other one is dramatic and I'll probably use it too. And thanks for the extra squares.
