Great idea, Renee! Here's me, in a nutshell:

Name: Wendy (frood)

Home: The Peak of Good Living, Apex, NC, USA

Occupation: homemaker/housewife/mom/dilettante

Age: old enough for a tattoo (40)

Past Lives: Office manager, non-mom


Family: Married for 16 years (or is it 17?) 5 kids: DD#1, 11 (12 in 2
weeks); DS, 8; DD#2 aka Miss Fussy Rose, 5 (6 in 3 days); Spike and Giles,
aka Entropy and Chaos, 3


Food: Vegetarian and everyone knows chocolate is a vegetable

QI's: Spike and Giles are my most trained QIs, but they have recently been
joined by a furry, 2-legged dog named Mungo. He has thoroughly inspected my
current project, to the point where his fur is part of the quilting design.

Machine(s): main machine: Rose, a Huskvarna Viking; quilting machine:
Margarita, a Singer 15-125 in a lovely shade of industrial green; back up:
Rocky the Rocketeer, a Singer 501A; plus one in time-out/storage, a Singer
306W known as the antichrist; and a non-working (parts missing) hand-crank
with a griffin decal on it.

Quilting For: About 6 years. I decided DD#2 needed a baby quilt, and that
was that.

Quilt Assembly Preference: rotary cut, machine pieced, mainly machine
quilting, although I have done some hand-quliting, and have more planned to
do (plus I have these reallly cool quilting thimbles to use!)

Quilt Style Preference: Style? We're supposed to have recognizable style?
Huh! who'd a thunk it!

Colour Preference: just about anything except muddy colors and baby pastels

Skill level: I like the term Confident Beginner, but when I take those
quizzes, I come out Intermediate to Advanced for piecing. For quilting, I'm
a Dubious Beginner!

Posting/Reading frequency: No more often than I breathe.

Interests other than quilting/fabric fondling/S.E.X.: Reading (mysteries)
and TV.

TV Shows: Monk, Dead Like Me, Six Feet Under; Buffy (early seasons only);
Forever Knight; BBCA's Coupling; House Invaders... I could go on, but I
don't want to waste bandwidth... G TV good!

Drive A: Mercury Villager with flames

Favorite Quote:"Babies are an inestimable blessing and a bother" Mark Twain
"Twins, doubly so" - me.

While googling trying to learn more about our Mesue (wish I had a chance

to
get to know her), I came across a thread from 2000 in which RCTQ'ers
introduced themselves in detail. I've come on board since then (September

of
'02), and I'm sure many others have too. Might be worth doing again for

the
sake of those who are a bit newer. I'll go first, in the hope that some of
you will follow suit.
Blessings
