In The Beginning

After thinking about it for a couple of years and an evening perusing some wonderful and delightful blogs, I decided to bite the bullet and start one of these suckers for myself. I asked my son for some name ideas and without missing a beat he said, " 'The Second Most Boring Blog on the Internet', because Mom, someone somewhere is gonna have one more boring." Bless his heart.

I don't know how often I will write or how many pictures will make the upload journey, but as long as I am having fun I will continue.

My name is Vicki and I live in a mid-sized city in Alabama. I am a transplant from the midwest via Florida but my son was born and raised in the south. We share our abode with an overweight, cranky, cross-eyed, blue point Siamese and one goldfish named Oscar Lee. Both are loved but only the cat gets into my yarn.

I have a part-time job teaching arts and crafts. How cool is that?! Right now I am working with senior citizens and loving every minute of our time together. I learn so much from them about crafts and about life. They range from 55 to 89 and move through life at full throttle. I am sure you will hear more about them.

I knit (both with needles and machines), crochet, sew, quilt and do a lot of general crafts. I am handy at many things but a master of none, a crafting jack-of-all-trades. That might be related to the fact that I have A.D.D. I tend to craft in cycles, devoting most of my time to one craft and then moving to something else when I start to get bored. Right now I am in a puttering mood, doing a little of this and that, but no large projects.

So, let's get to know each other as we craft along this road called life.
