The Modern Quilt Guild is encouraging everyone to post a picture of themselves to put a face to the blog to make it easier to meet in person, and I am late to the party but still wanted to share, so this is me.
And just for fun, here are five things you may not know about me:
| One |
By day, I am a biomedical engineer. I work for a medical device company doing usability/human factors testing and user interface design, and am lucky enough to work from home most of the time! I do have a cube in our Boston-area office though and have to show my face there once a month or so :)
| Two |
I have three wonderful sisters, and each of us are a little over 5 years apart in age (17, 23, 29 and 34). We are all in different places in our lives and our personalities are all completely opposite, but thankfully we still get along really well for the most part!
| Three |
My husband and I met in high school. I spent a portion of my junior year trying to set him up with one of my best friends for some reason, but thankfully neither of them was very interested in the other :) We've been together for 12 years now, and married for 3.5.
| Four |
I am very picky about the types of meat that I'll eat. I can't even swallow a piece of steak because of the texture (it feels like I'm eating muscle, which I suppose is true!). I am in love with vegetables though, and I've never met a vegetable I didn't like (other than green beans...ick!).
| Five |
You will probably never see me in public without a scarf or a necklace on. They're my wardrobe security blankets!
and a bonus | Six |
I never considered myself a creative person until a few years ago, and I still have a hard time defining myself as a designer/quilter/blogger/etc. For the most part, I don't believe that creativity is something you are born with, I think it is something that is learned just like science or math. The more time you spend doing creative things, the easier it becomes and the more you improve, just like with anything else in life.
Now that I've gone all philosophical on you, I think it's time to end this list! If you see me at Quiltcon, please say hi! I am terrible at approaching others but I really do want to meet you :)
