Thank you to Heather for this great blogger's award. She writes a very nice blog about her book reviews, knitting, and quilting. She was so kind to nominate me for my award. Her blog is called Books and Quilts and you may want to check it out sometime soon.
Here is a top7 things about me list:
7. As you can probably tell from my blog, I like quilting, gardening, and cooking. Probably in that order too! Shortly after starting this blog, I got into it so much that I actually started a second blog to connect with artists and art educators. It is called Gallery2404.
6. I am interested in bike riding, reading, and lots of different crafts. I often make my own notecards.
5. When I travel, I like to visit the historical homes in the area and shop for antiques. I adore old Singer sewing machines and also collect toy hand crank machines.
4. I am married to a mopar guy and while he hangs out in the garage, I make my quilts.
3. I am a coffee, wine, and tea drinker, it just depends on what time of day it happens to be at the moment.
2. I love SPRING the best of all the seasons. Tulips are my favorite flower. I also love the bright yellowish greens of the newly opened leaves and grasses.
1. I teach full time at a wonderful Catholic grade school. The subjects I teach are: Art for grades 3 - 6 and reading - language arts for special needs students. I wouldn't change a thing about my job or the students. The only thing I'd request is less playground duties! That really cuts into art prep time!!!
