3 things you should know about me

2014-204Should, could, would… I don’t know which it is. So maybe you don’t HAVE to know these things, but might just be curious about some little known facts about me.

2014-2051. Whenever I receive a payment notice for a new subscription to one of our websites or a purchase of one of my patterns, I make a pause for a moment, and allow my heart to send out a “thank you.” Always. I try to live my life out of a place of gratitude.

2014-2062. I love to dance. Preferably salsa.  It’s actually part of my exercise routine. Living alone has also meant having to dance alone. (Any of you watch Grey’s Anatomy? Remember Callie, in Season 1? Yep, that’s me!) At first that was kind of weird. And then the dogs decided to join in. I no longer dance alone. 🙂

2014-2073. In my next life I’m going to be a carpenter. I love the texture and the smell of wood. I relate to it in the same way I relate to fabric. Something about running my hands along a sanded piece of wood always reminds me of running my hands along a quilt. It is such a satisfying experience. So maybe, just maybe, I’ll just go ahead and get started… soon. 🙂

    Loved the post. I try to remember to live from a point of praise and gratitude myself, but sometimes forget. I’ll blame it on senior moments…..giggle. I really enjoyed the post Angie! I can’t dance anymore except from the heart…:)

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
