My Seven Things

I am so excited! Pam just tagged me for that 7 things about me meme. I feel like I was just picked for a team or something! How fun is that!!

The Rules of the meme are:
1. When tagged, place the name of the person and URL on your blog
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself
4. Name 7 of your favourite weblogs
5. Send an e-mail letting those bloggers know they have been tagged


Let's see, hmmmm, where to start...


1). I am trying to learn a "new" thing every month and not just run-of-the-mill stuff, but big things, like how to fix a sprinkler head etc. See previous post to find out what new thing I learned in January.
I'm still working on February's thing... (If anyone has any suggestions HELP it's getting close to the end of the month).


2). I am a HUGE college sports fan and March Madness is one of my favorite times of the year. This is my team.


3). I speak Spanish and lived in Spain for 18 months.


4). I have a love affair with diet Pepsi and baked lays potato chips.


5). I love to make lists... lists for everything, lists for what I am doing today, what quilts I need to make, what I need to do for the week. In fact, I even have a list started for market (which is, gasp, only eleven weeks away...)


6). I hate wet feet


7). I have a BFA in Graphic Design from here.


And one bonus....
My dirty little secret is that I sew with bent pins....

Now, who to tag.....

I think I'll start with Juliet (who should have her baby any day now)and Nancy (who has a quilt shop that I just LOVE - If you are ever in SLC, stop by and visit her). I also want to tag Sharon and Anna.
Thanks guys, If you have already been tagged then put me on ignore.

more...


Yep, more snow... But no more shoveling for me! I finally conqured my fears and learned how to use the snow blower (I think dear husband was thrilled)! I feel so big and bad out there clearing the driveway just like the rest of the men on my circle.
Hmmm what to do next, sew a quilt or build a shed...

Here Comes the SNOW!!


Holy Smokes!!!
This is just one of the MANY storms that have wailed on us in the month of January! For all of you who didn't get any snow, or at least not this much, I will gladly give you some of mine. I am sick of shoveling. This photo is from a storm that dumped on us about 1-1/2 weeks ago. We have had about 2 more storms since then. We could get another one just in time for the Super Bowl.
Hope all of you are warm and dry in your houses just sewing and quilting up a storm.
Happy Snow (I think...)
Mary
On another note... One of my goals for this coming year is to learn how to get my photos from the camera to the computer without the help of my dear husband.. I'll keep you posted on that one.
