My name is Katie. I'm 29 and will be celebrating the big 3-0 in December. I live in my hometown in Minnesota with my boyfriend of two years, Chad, and two dogs, Jameson and Angus. Jameson is a Boston Terrier and Angus is a Scottish Terrier. I do post photos of them from time to time.
I'm currently working part time for a large corporation (full time this summer) and go to school full time. I'm majoring in art and minoring in apparel and textiles. I already have a degree in human resources, which was a complete waste of time and money, thanks to our recession. Creating was always my dream though, so it took being laid off and unable to find a job in this economy to prompt me to finally follow it.
As far as quilting goes, I only made small projects until last December when I completed a large wall quilt for a final project. It needs some tweeking and I do have plans to share it here. I'm working on two QALs right now, but those are at a stand still while I try to find time. I first learned to sew in middle school and didn't start sewing again until a year ago and I'm still learning things with each new project I try.
I also garden, cook/bake, knit, crochet, photograph with film (and develop it myself), paint, embroider, draw, play music, read lots of books, and love to watch sports, reality tv and old movies. Clark Gable is my favorite actor of all time. I try to learn something new every day and greatly enjoy word and math puzzles to keep me sane and my brain active.
I have no interest in politics or the negativity I see from time to time on blogs.
My blog will tend to be all over the place, as I do have a variety of interests. My goal in life is to one day work for myself using my art and sewing background while tending to a small farm. Luckily Chad is on board with that as well. Our only difference in opinion is the amount of animals we would be tending to.
Well, I think I've rambled enough about myself. Feel free to stick around for future postings, peek at old ones, and ask any questions you may have. Thanks for stopping by!
