Fabric Tags

This is the fabric that I got at City Quilter in NYC. I call the black and white on top my NYC souvenir fabric! The top three are for my Black and White Challenge quilt.

(I took this pix with my new camera and it isn't looking any better than with the old...this is not good.)

I got this fabric at Sturbridge Village-it was hard to many beautiful reproduction fabrics from their collection. Moda Fabrics is the manufacturer.

While I was on our trip, I got tagged by Maggie.

Here are the rules of the game:

1. When you are tagged you are asked to list eight random facts about yourself and post them on your blog for visitors to enjoy.

2. Tag eight of your blogging friends and leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to join in the fun if they have the opportunity. (If not, that's okay. They can still enjoy the random facts everyone shares :) Be sure to list a link to your eight friends in your posting.

OK, so here goes

1. I work out regularly with small 2 lb. weights. This is for upper arm strength because when we first got our new pots, I could hardly lift them.

2. I worked for years as an archaeological restorer-glued lots of broken pottery together and once I got to work on Roman glass.

3. I have no computer confidence and have angst attacks whenever I have to do something new.

4. I love baking, like cooking, and hate cleaning.

5. I have a good sense of direction but no sense of time .

6. I love bad movies but they have to be really bad that they are funny. No one in the family will watch them with me because they're so bad.

7. My taste in TV is as discriminating as in movies! I'll pretty much watch anything...I've even watched E! On the other hand, I rarely have "my" show-Gilmore Girls being the one big exception. I still watch reruns which drives my husband crazy-but then, he does the same thing with Law and Order. I call it "default TV".

8. This is the view from our screened- in porch...the water is the Sea of Galilee.
