Right now I am sitting here bleary eyed and drinking coffee, thinking about getting dressed after all it is nearly 8:30 in the morning. I don't do mornings!

You're awesome! I LOVE this post. It really got me thinking about what "I am". I may have to be a copy cat and do a similar post. As Broken Y stated....You're my kinda friend too! Man, I wish P and lived closer to you gals...oh the fun that would be had, the coffee to be drank and the love of God to be shared! Have a great weekend!

Cow Pies - I hope you do write a similar post! In fact consider it an assignment for all of you gals! I actually cased it from an old scrapbook magazine so it's not my original idea. I've never made a page about me, but it was fun!

Great list! I just finished working on a list of "25 things about me" for my Facebook page, I thought it would be really hard but once I started, the random quirks, habits, and stories just came out! :)

....and you're my dear sweet friend!

Nancy said...

That's a great idea to post things that other might not know about you. Love your blog.

Karin said...

Pony Girl - Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed making your list as much as I did. Yes, the quirks and habits really do tend to surface once you put pen to paper.

Nancy - Thank you and thanks for dropping in!Hopefully you'll work on a list of your own!

So glad to have found your blog, after checking out the Friday Finishes posted on the "In Stitches" blog. You are a very entertaining writer, and I think we have a lot in common. Love your hobo quilt!

Karin said...

Awe - thanks Teresa! I'm glad you 'found' me! LOL! I'm looking forward to stopping by and visiting you too! I love that this medium allows us to meet people from so many different places and I need to tell you that I may be living vicariously through you if you live in a log cabin! LOL!
