Fathers day.. been and gone. While Wyatt was here (our middle son) he showed us that he'd been interviewed and published in a Magazine!! Yes, Another one.. and in English!! Lol..last time, I think it was Chinese. Check it out: Wyatts Interview
Wyatt has been designing cars and other things since he was a teenager. I like to think that my small graphic design business got his creativity working. He has always been a good artist.
So, this is part of his side business!! If you can believe that. I'm hoping that he will get so much design work that he has to quit his day job. Then he can spend more time with his 4 kids and work from home... his ultimate goal, I think.

Catch up time

Yesterday my husband brought me home 2 fleeces from his friend, Rich, at work. Thanks Rich!! One black, one white. Now I need to find a box to send them off to Dawns Custom carding.

I have been knitting on the blue sweater and the wrap from the story below. But, having a Knitting block! Think I'll spin for awhile. I have a ton to spin up.

Thursday Group at Village Yarn and Tea has an Official name now: Church Of The Holy Stitch. We came upon that one because of Anna Marie, who is a sometimes member and an Episcopalian Priest(I think thats the right church). Tho you'd never know it from talking to her. She is great fun. A total sweetheart with a questionable sense of humor.

Got Tagged By Kim

The Lovely Kim tagged me. Was wondering why I'd never been tagged...mmmm...
So, 7 Random things about me.

#1 My husband Bill and my 3 Boys (Jerico,Wyatt(Jyll) & Marshall) and thier kids (Eryka, Trysten, Jayda,Bryce)and my extra kids
(Andrew, Grant, Shane & Marie) are the most important people in the world. Even the ones I only hear from occassionally.

#2 I got my first computer in 1982. I begged Bill not to buy it. I was afraid it would eat my brain. I think it did! I designed graphics for the TI99-4a for 4 years. Rarely walked far away from it. All the kids work in one computer field or another.

#3 As an add on to #2- I'm a video game Freak. For the last 4 years I've played Final Fantasy XI everyday. Heaven help anyone who asks me about it because I could talk about it for HOURS. A total geek!

#4 I hate Spiders!! I lived in Hawaii for a few my hippy days.. One of my memorable stories is how while living in Waikiki I saw my first Cane spider and Screamed like I was being Stabbed. I had the Honolulu cops rushing into my apt. with guns drawn in less then a minute. How embarrassing. Cane spiders can be 5-6 inches across. Gives me heebie Geebies just writing about it!

#5 I love Cats...I could be the crazy cat lady!

#6 Inside I'm a sassy Victorian Princess.. all flowers and Lace. Sometimes some of that sneaks out in little ways. A lace blouse.. flowery hair something.

#7 I own at least 100 pairs of earrings. I have a rule. If I leave the house without earrings I have to buy some. Most of the 100 I made myself and would be overjoyed to make you a pair. I cannot resist BEADS.. that should be #8 but it only asked for 7.

So whom do I tag? Don't wanna duplicate Kims.. so.. Sharon, Pam, Jyll, Emma, Rebecca , Nilda,
and Rebecca. Boy that was hard to do!
The rules of the meme game are: If you are tagged, list 7 random things about yourself on your blog, then tag 7 others, listing their names on your blog. Leave a note in their blog comments so they know they've been tagged and to read your blog. I've never been tagged for something like this before, so I hope all my taggees have fun with it.
