I am the one on the right. You were right! That's my little sister next to me. I'll find a picture of just me at some point. Thanks for writing me! My husband was only 27 and I'm only 24 so I'm lost! I guess life goes on though. He bought me a sewing machine in May. I'm trying to use it as much as possible. I was making a quilt for his parents, but have not gotten it quilted yet.
BearFoot was the name of my embroidery company which I closed a couple of years ago. Now I use it as a "handle" on most forums that I belong to. It is sort of a play on words. I hate to wear shoes but the "bear" part has to do with my hubby and me...we collect bear zuni fetishes when we go on motorcycle rides (which now we can't do because of DH's health)
It sure is a small world. You are probably 35 minutes from me. Do you shop at Patricia's or Material Rewards? Do you quilt on a machine frame? I just purchased a Grace frame and a Babylock QP machine. Haven't gotten it all set up as yet. I work full time in Monroe county as a community health nurse, so I don't have the time or energy to do much sewing or quilting. My recent purchase is motivational. I hope it works, because I sure do need a creative outlet!
Thank you. I think she is beautiful!!! Although I don't think she looks much like me, much like my daughter and her father. She is 1/2 Af Am, which gives her light chocolate skin and big, black eyes and tons of curly black hair. She's my biggest fan! All the others still like me, but they are all getting up to those dreaded "teens" and have other interests. Her name is Jaliyah, and yes she loves to color and cut and paste and draw and help me with my crafts, all the g-kids (I have 6) have been big craft helpers throughout the years. Christmas ornaments, cookie decorators, you name it. I too wish I was retired, but alas - I owe, I owe, so off to work I go......!
Thanks for the nice comments. The little girl is my youngest grand daughter who will be 6 in one week. I moved here a year and half ago to follow my fellow. I work at the University of Hawaii and part time and Kaimuki Dry Goods, the only decent fabric store on the island - we do have a couple of cute quilts shops tho. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone!
