Hi old and new blogger friends. We are here today to tell a little about ourselves and increase are readership and followes. This is being hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full. You can read all about it HERE and go check out all the participants.
My name is Linda and I am 64 years old. I have been married to the love of my life for 21 years. We have 10 cats - Mr. D, Morris, Miss Murphy, Moon Dragon, Midnite, Mocha, Sparky, Snowflake, Smeegol and Sassy. We also have 2 not so small miniature Schnauzers - Max and Rocky. We live in California in the sierra foothills. I am a 19 year breast cancer survivor.
I taught myself to knit in the mid 60's in high school. I made a small ripple blanket and never wove in the ends so it sorta had fringe on one side. I made a sweater and a couple vests. I got married in 1970 and taught myself to do needlepoint. I have done several pieces. I also do latch hook rugs and I love to put jigsaw puzzles together. In 1972 I taught myself to crochet. I have made over 300 items including baby clothes, toys but 75% afghans/blankets. I bought a book called Lacy Granny Squares and it became my favorite square to crochet. I have made over 3,000 of these squares. (that is Morris in the pic)
First needlepoint piece.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my blog and become a follower.
Thanks for looking. Linda
