Five Little Things


In anticipation of Quilt Con - which is only 3 weeks away folks! - The Modern Quilt Guild asked folks to share 5 little facts about them. This is so when you see me on the show floor or are taking my class you can accost me with these random facts and I'll wonder how the hell you know these things about me.

I'm fairly open here and if you've been reading for a while you'll know plenty about me, including these tidbits from almost 5 years ago (I can now make rice krispie squares). That's why I had to dig deep for these five things.

1. I never wanted kids
Hubby married me knowing this. The moment I changed my mind came after a few too many beers and watching Adam Sandler's movie Big Daddy. Sad, but true. Look at me now.

2. I have a third nipple
So do other members of my family, our lovely genetic quirk. So when Friends was on and Chandler was teased about his, we knew what he was talking about.

3. I swear like a trucker
Having kids has tempered that tendency, a little. But it is a daily challenge to keep my language in check around other people.

4. There are at least 7 more books brewing in my head
I could work full-time on writing books and be deliriously happy, but I do need to pay attention to those kids I decided to have.

5.Seventies music rocks
Being born in the mid-70s, I was too young to remember the music specifically, but I have a weird obsession with having 70s music on whatever music channels are available. Even the soft rock stuff.

Dude, we are almost the same person.
1. Same but I was rubbing aspercreme on Jason's sick grandmother and was all "who's going to do this to us when we're sick. we should have kids".

2. Can I see it?

3. Same

4. I only have 3 and I haven't written any.

5. OH MY HELL! Yes.

PS thanks for playing along.

I think it's only right that swearing & quilting go together. I became a teacher so that has affected my language use significantly except when the hockey game's on. Then I get uber-Canadian with my use of the f-word. :-)

Hey, I am going to QuiltCon, I sure hope that I get to finally meet you. Being slightly older than you, and having been a radio child, I know some of that 70s music.

Laughing. Out. Loud. Stuck to the tub- I never! F'n-A Edgefest! I'm now very reassured that I'm still a cool rocker chick even if I did decide to have kids and start to quilt. I'm sure that doesn't make us old ladies...

and what does swearing and extra nipples have to do with quilting???

i guess i expected a little better from someone who put out such an awesome book that i have made so many quilts from....sigh...

I love your 5 things. Have been reading your blog for a while now, and it's one of my favs. My sister gave me Sunday Morning Quilts for the holidays and I love it, but haven't had much time for quilting, w a 6-month old (and a 3.5 yo), and a day job too.

You're awesome. And I like that we've got some things in common -- I too was a no-kids gal, and my hubbie knew it well when we married. But time eased the idea into our lives, and the kids really are great. Folks think it's hilarious when i swear cuz I don't do it aloud as often as in my mind (was once told it was like a squirrel smoking a cigarette). And I'm also a child of the 70's.
