I sure don't deserve the kudos; with me what you see is what you get. I'm just a happy, caring, giving person.....which, as Becka knows, really irks some people. It used to irk my ex-husband, too, which is why he's my ex husband. :rofling:
I'm in Kalamazoo, MI. I knit,crochet, weave and spin. I work out of my home for Philips Medical Systems (Royal Philips Netherlands) and my other hobbies are golf, motorcycles, NASCAR. Have 2 grown sons and one little grandson out East, who I don't get to see enough of. I was divorced 3 yrs ago (after 27 yrs) and I'm now married to my college sweetie, with whom I'd lost contact for over 30 yrs.
I have an online journal, the link is below, which I'm planning to update tonight or tomorrow with photos. Right now I'm into making felted purses, knitting lace, weaving kitchen towels and thinking about the ton of wool and fiber that needs to be spun.
In addition to giving money to the rescue/recovery effort down South, I'm planning to start making some knitted bears, etc to be given to children left with nothing. Probably go through the Salvation Army or Red Cross here in MI as the area is taking a thousand or so displaced families.
That's about it in a nutshell. I'm glad Becka mentioned this forum to me. I can't wait to start reading through back messages and to start offering help of my own.
