About Me

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

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

I work for myself from home specializing in FileMaker Pro development. I've been lucky to work with clients from around the world.

Now that Sarah is 7 we are busy most days with some activity (dance, synchro swim, church). or school work. I help with the Godly Play program at our church.

At the moment, I am working on a cross stitch for Christmas and de-cluttering my home.

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

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.

I'm doing the happy dance over the little birdie fabric you sent for the Quilts n Things WTA #10, what a great memory you have:) I can't wait to make something with this generous piece. The tea and buttons were so thoughtful...thank you for everything! (((hugs)))
