    Happy Birthday Sewbizgirl....hopefully my package comes today!

    I love pinterest...maybe you can tell by how many pins I have posted (i think around 3,000) so I am gonna be really busy! I have a board called completed pins. When I finish a pin I post it there and sometimes I put the results. (recipe if it was good or not).

    Barbara, I love the bag that you made. Was the frame hard to attach? So cute!

    I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest too. So many ideas so little time. Especially when you get lost on Pinterest. Check out my pages http://www.pinterest.com/dottie_dodge/

    Happy Birthday Bonnie.
    I too am addicted to Pinterest. It's a toss-up if I spend more time on Quilting Board or Pinterest. No wonder my hand quilting takes so long. I can't seem to turn off the computer. The good ideas are just endless and many of them seem to turn into UFO's.
    My pinterest page is www.pinterest.com/benndm/
    Sorry I don't know how to make it where you just click on it.

    Not today, Barbara, but I did get the lovely assortment below from Janice McC! Thank you for the card and all the pretty candy Janice. My favorite one of the whole lot is the red checked one at the top, by the kitty card. Love that retro little girl on it!

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes and also for posting your Pinterest pages. Will love checking them out. I agree, Pinterest can really suck up some time! But it's a great resource.

    Well I guess I'll tell you my bio and get it out of the way!

    I am married to a wonderful man and we have three grown children. The oldest, a daughter, is married but no grandkids for us yet. We are waiting and hopeful. Second child, a son, will be getting engaged soon to a sweet girl and probably will be married a year from now. Third child, also a son, is a busy pilot, off pursuing his career.

    I work only part-time at a fitness center, teaching Silver Sneaker classes. I teach general exercise, yoga, and water aerobics. LOVE it! I am home the rest of the time, to be available to hubby who is disabled. That's where the quilting comes in!

    I made a few quilts for the kids when they were little, but didn't start quilting in earnest until a few years ago when a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted to make her a prayer quilt to take to her chemo sessions, with scriptures on it to encourage her and feed her faith. It was such a rewarding experience that I have kept making quilts. I gave 10 or so last year as wedding gifts, and at least that many more childrens' quilts to charities. I also have an Etsy shop, hoping to sell a quilt or two now and again.

    Currently I am working on a scrappy "Chunky Churn Dash" pattern by Bonnie Hunter, as well as the "Arkansas Crossroads" I am doing from these candy squares. I'm also cutting up shirts like crazy, preparing to make another shirt quilt or two. And I always have knitting and/or crochet projects going too!

    I also design and write knitting patterns and just wrote my first crochet pattern which I sell in my Etsy shop. I'm knitting hubby a red cabled cap at the moment and just finished a pair of slippers for myself.

    Barb asked us to mention what we are most proud of. Quiltwise, it would probably be the Bento Box quilt I made for an engaged couple last year, a special friend of the family: http://www.quiltingboard.com/members...51-416283.html . Lifewise, I am most proud of my kids. They have all grown up into such fine young adults and I love and admire each one of them so much.

    Thanks for listening to me rattle on...
