Hello and welcome to my blog! I saw this lovely idea of Vicki's pop up on lots of blogs around the world last year and was a little irritated that I was disorganised enough to miss the closing date. However.... as you will see from the post before last, changes are afoot, Mrs WT isn't going to procrastinate/miss deadlines/will finish her WISPs (WISPS? Works in SLOW Progress), blog frequently, keep to a stash spending budget (Ha!) and generally be a (more than ever) delightful person!
So... for those that don't know me, who am I? I am British but have lived in the US for 25 years, in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois and Michigan twice, yikes. Well, actually not strictly correct as we sneaked back to the UK for two delightful years in 2010 then we were made to come back as t'boss decided the World Traveller was needed more back in the US, sadly.
Right now we live in Michigan on a lake, a frozen one,

I have been married to the World Traveller for more years than either of us can remember and he still makes me laugh! I am an Army brat so moving is in my blood, born in Scotland and left at six weeks old and have kept moving ever since. We have three children all living somewhere else, sadly, though they all assure us that they do quite like us..... the Wyoming Cowboy who lives in the Equality state with his lovely wife and three little Wyoming cow persons, DC Girl and Big Cousin (our #1 grandson) and Pittsburgh Girl who lives with her partner and his son in the 'burgh.
This is mainly a stitching blog though knitting makes frequent appearances and crochet is creeping in too. I rarely leave home without my camera and have a sadly neglected photo blog here that I have great intentions (see first paragraph) of bringing up to date.
Of all the social media platforms (such a pompous phrase) blogging is the one that appeals to me the most. I have a Twitter account that I rarely use, I go on Facebook to leave smart/sassy comments but the blogging community is the one in which I feel most at home. I have made friends around the world that sadly I will never meet face to face but with whom I feel a kinship and have also made friends that I HAVE been fortunate enough to meet in person and can quite honestly say I have never returned home wishing the meeting had never take place. Bloggers are nice!
Thank you to Vicki for putting this whole event together and thank you for reading this far.
Please leave me a comment and tell me if you would like to enter for a small drawing, a Moda charm pack 'Cornucopia'.....
whoops forgot to tell you that I quilt too, but only if the points don't have to meet, as Shirley Conran might say, life's too short!
Another Saturday morning edit..... going to be brave and make a small something for the giveaway too, might be crazy quilting, won't promise but it will be something and small! Got to be brave and not just talk about CQ!
