Milestone -- 200 followers!

This past week I was 'tagged' by Carla over at "My Life..a Little of This ...a Little of That", in a blog tag game. One of the bloggers hopping around, Suzy from "Sunshine and Lollipops"stopped by my blog and became a floower, putting my follower list at 200! I offered her one of my patterns and it is now in the mail to her. Thank you Suzy for stopping by and for becoming a follower!!

So Here are the rules:

  • Every tagged person has to tell 11 things about themselves
  • The person who tagged you asked 11 questions, answer them
  • Ask 11 questions for the 11 blogs you're going to tag (the people you tag should have less than 200 followers)
  • Mention the blog that tagged you, but don't tag them back.  (see above)
Things about me
1. I grew up on the California Central Coast. I really miss the ocean where I'm at now.
2. I traveled extensively in my early career as a financial engineer/project manager. I enjoy staying near home most of the time now, but venturing forth every couple of months or so.
3. I've been married for the first time, for 3.5 years. Love him!!!!
4. Have belonged to a Gourmet Club for the last couple of years. Really fun to experiment with new foods every month selected by the hostess and shared with good friends.
5. Feel very blessed at the amount of doors that have opened in my new industry.
6. Learned how to quilt while in middle-school from a neighbor. Didn't do anything else with 'quilting', but made plenty of 'clothes' taught to me by my mother, until our church started an outreach program with a quilting class after 9/11. It fast became a hobby and I started teaching it within a few months.
7. I've been professionally long-arm machine quilting for 3 years.
8. Won a 2nd place ribbon for Machine Quilted, Pieced, Solo at the most recent Washington State Quilter's - Spokane quilt show.
9. I'm an EQ Artist
10. I've self-published several patterns -->see link in the right margin to purchase at patternspot.
11. I grew up in a family of teachers. Although I felt I didn't have the patience like they have to make it a career, I've taught at the college level and it is always nice to see the lightbulbs turn on when you are teaching.
