Joined 4 years ago from IOWA CITY
Who am I? I am a mother, a teacher, a quilter, a cook, and many other things. I write on topics relating to all of these things and (as I implied) other things as well. Here's the breakdown:
A mother - I share my experiences of being a new mother. Children do the darndest things and, boy, do they like to give parents a scare. So, when should a mother worry? What is that first cold like? What things were a suprise and what things weren't?
A teacher - I have taught ESL for the last few years in different settings (community centers, community colleges, one-on-one tutoring). I share different teaching ideas I have used, activities that work in the classroom, and, perhaps, what a teacher should avoid.
A quilter - I love to sew. It's one of my few hobbies. I share my projects, review patterns, and give advice to new quilters.
A cook - I started cooking when I still needed a stool to reach the counter. I share recipes I have tweaked and talk about some of the healthy alternatives out there.
Etc. - In addition to all of this, I occasionally write about my views on education (homeschool and public school), Crohn's disease (diagnosed in 2006), and whatever else strike's my fancy.

This is a simple way to make a fun, dynamic, and functional quilt with only one quick stop at the craft store and hardly any time spent matching fabric! What could be better?

Do you hate those love handles or baggy arms? This workout by intense trainer Jillian Michaels focuses on all those areas that are commonly known as our trouble areas.
