My good friend Marilyn Fuller has convinced me to join this site and become a blogger. I have never "blogged" before but here goes. I am a retired RN, married 17 years to a retired naval officer, piper and longboat coxswain. I have one grandchild - a girl - who is the see all and end all of my life. She is 5 years old. No pets at the moment and not really looking. I have been sewing since I was wee and my grandmother (Nanny) was the biggest sewing influence in my life. I knit, crochet and cross-stitch as well. I belong to 3 guilds, 2 satellite groups and do charilty sewing regularily. I retreat twice a year with a great group of retired nurses, teachers and admin. officer assistants. Oh yeah, and a full time pharmacist - she's the baby of our group. My life is full to bursting and I am thankful I can do all I dreamed about doing before I retired. That's about it - that's me and I look forward to getting pictures up and running soon.
