This year Measi has also gave us some suggestions on what we could talk about each check in. For today she said this...Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
So let's see. I'm Katie. I'm 34 and a stay at home mom. I have a son named Jeremiah who is 15. He is my life. He was born 2 months premature and has cerebral palsy. It affects his legs and makes it so he can't walk without assistance. He uses a wheelchair for long distances. He can walk by holding my one hand into restaurants and those types of things. He attended public school until the 3rd grade and we realized it just wasn't working for him. So I started home schooling him and we have never doubted it one second. I'm also lucky enough to be happily married to Fred. He's my soul mate and I'm so thankful to have him in my life. We bought a house with my mom Jodie. No reason to have two yards to mow and two cable bills. We also have a friend that lives with us Betty. I love life! We travel a lot. I'm so lucky and I appreciate everything I have. That's a quick look at me.
My projects are scattered and random. I love bright colors. I love fun pieces. I love fantasy so HAED is a favorite. I tend to work on whatever makes me happy at the moment. Last year I realized I loved Stoney Creek and have added several to my to do basket. I do a lot of nautical things for my mom. She LOVES the ocean and anything to do with it.
My goals....enjoy my stitching and do whatever makes me happy. So my list changes and I add stuff and take away stuff. Besides stitching is my hobby. I want to enjoy it. I used to model stitch and realized it made it feel like a job. So I quit. I love taking a blank piece of fabric and creating a design on it. I'll work on whatever screams STITCH ME!
So I'll go through my list and show where I am at this point. These are the ones I've worked on since the start of the year.
