25 Random Facts About Me Meme Tag

Sharon tagged me with a meme tag for listing 25 random things about me. Check out her fabulous blog at http://www.sagecreekfarm.blogspot.com/ . The rules are that I make the list and then tag up to 25 other bloggers to do the same......I'm not sure I'll find 25....but, I'll sure tag a few.

Okay.....here we go.

1) I am a born again Christian!

2) I used to be one of those scary goth chicks.......:) Black lipstick and earrings everywhere;)

3) I learned to weave from a little tiny European woman who made me start all over if I made a mistake......best teacher in the world!!!

4) I have been knitting/crochet and cross stitch since I was six years old:)

5) I have a wonderful three year old who can talk anyone's head off.

6) My husband spent almost a year over seas in the current war on terror in Iraq and has since served his term in the military.........can you believe that he is thinking about re-enlisting?

7) I still have a LOT of earrings:)

8) My Dad is my best friend!!!!!

9) I hate pink:)

10) My favorite food in the whole world is meatloaf........I will even order it at a diner....ew!!!

11) Bologna, olives, salt, and tomatoes are of my least favorite foods BUT........I like oliveloaf and will eat a slice of tomato with salt on it......I can't even figure that one out.

12) I left the insurance business to stay home with my little boy but, found that I have a nasty case of ants in the pants so, that's how Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio got started:)

13) I'm not fond of blues.

14) Weaving is passion!!!!! I like spinning second but, weaving really really really is my passion.

15) I am the coordinating secretary for the Wurtsboro Arts Alliance.

16) I am one of two girls..........the other one is a successful 'controller' at a company that makes parts for the military.......she's a number cruncher.

17) I majored in electronics and couldn't tell you a thing about it. :) I had a 100 average (102 if you count in the extra credit assignments) .........if you don't use it, you loose it;)

18) I have lived in upstate New York my whole life and have no plans on leaving....I love it here.

19) I'm certainly a cat person and have never really liked dogs BUT, we got a South African Boerboel for Christmas (my husband did) and she has really grown on me.....she is 5 months old and weighs 65 lbs!!!! Right now she is snoring like my Grandpa used to:)

20) My son was named after the prophet Jeremiah........want to know what God said to him? This is so cool!!!!! "I know the plans I have for you. Plans for welfare and not for evil. To give you a future and a hope" I just love that!!!

21) I make my bed every morning but, hardly ever remember to take the clothes out of the washer and have to wash them again......what's up with that?

22) The furthest out of state that I have ever been south is Florida, east is New Jersey shore, North is Canada (Niagra Falls area) and west is Moorehead Minnesota.....two weeks there in a hotel because of broken lug nuts on a tire! oh boy!!!

23) I love the summer the best and love it when the humidity is extreme. The only reason I haven't moved to the Amazon is because they 1) don't really have a lot of books there 2) Winter gives me an excuse to not leave the house.

24) I clean houses.

25) My dream is to one day have a brick and mortar shop where I can teach folks (both adults and kids) various forms of fiber arts.

Ok.....I'll tag some other bloggers:)

I have been reading the results of this tag at various places including yours. It is very interesting to read little tidbits about everyone. -Renee

Fun list - thanks. I was surprised at all the things I learned about people when I thought I knew them. The list allows the trivia that doesn't fit the context of a blog. I make my bed every day too - I would never have thought to say that!!

How fun! What a neat way to learn more about you! Bless your hubby's heart... My nephew-in-law got back from his third (fourth?) tour in Iraq just before Christmas (he defuses IEDs - yikes). I can't imagine how you do it all with him gone - good for you! (Must be so hard for him, too!)

Two weeks in Moorehead Minnesota. I have a niece going to collage in Moorehead. I loved hearing about you and sure do admire both you and your husband. Sure must be hard being away from each other.

Shannon, thank you so much for your kind words on my blog this morning. Your warmth comes across even through the computer screen.

On a lighter note, I really enjoyed reading your trivia. We share African Dogs. Although, mine is a Rhodesian Ridgeback or South African Lion Dog. They, like yours, were a mixture of the Dutch colonists dogs, and the wild native dogs.

And -- I confess, I do the same thing with my laundry!! I agree--what's up with that??!! *grin*

A big thanks to your husband and to you for his service. The wives and family at home, are just as much a part and I truly appreciate the sacrifices that your young family has made.

Wishing you a wonderful, creative day,

Jane

Pine cones, Gingerbread Men, Maple Leaves, ?

I was asked if I can weave pine cones onto towels by a very influential woman of God in my life. Of course, I said "Yeah! Sure!". Knowing full well that with a little bit of research and effort, I would be able to weave just about any image out there with a 3/1 twill. Well, I think I have what I'm looking for. These are screen shots of the front and back of the image.


So....I was wondering.......what do you think? Does it look like a pine cone? I have the loom beamed, as of last night, in a point twill 1-32 and am planning on a natural cotton with a band on either side of the towel with a strip of pine cones. Since I put enough on the loom for four sets of two, I figured I would kill two birds with one stone and make my mother-in-law a set of gingerbread men towels for her kitchen. She's a little obsessed with gingerbread men....it's her kitchen theme that has spilled into the dinning room and living room:) Gotta love her!!!

That leaves (ha ha ha sounds like a pun)…

I Guess That's Just Life

I will be posting again soon. I'm in the midst of a move. Sometimes the choices we make in life don't turn out as planned......or don't turn out at all. I have come to the hard decision that leaving my current residence and moving to an apartment with my son (and two cats) is best for our family. The past six years have been fairly difficult and the last two have been slightly overbearing. I think I'm writing all of this here because I feel that the stress I have been feeling has prevented me from being as productive as I can be. Some people are good 'under pressure' but, I find that I am about the worst 'under pressure'. I have been searching for a new place for about six months and finally came across something within reasonable distance from my sub job with the Post Office, cleaning jobs, and family. There is plenty of room for Jeremiah, myself, and (of course) my two looms:) One of which I will ecstatically set up in the living room area! …

March!

I would like to thank EVERYONE for your kind words and thoughts and prayers and blessings;) Jeremiah and I are doing fabulous at our new location...........as the wrinkles of life get their due ironing, I'm finding my place and trying my hardest to settle in with the new adjustments. I've found one thing for sure........I have 'free time' or rather, time to work, where I didn't have it before. :) As the last bits of snow fall from the sky this morning, I had some time to work on some new draft ideas............and I am liking the results for sure:)
I'm going to commit to working on my COE......I just have to send away for the info.............I've never been so inspired in all my life to create..............woo! Weavecast (I'm like two years behind on episodes:) has a wonderful episode featuring information on completing a COE and the one thing I heard over and over was that most of the weavers wished that they would have used the COE process to learn. …
