I have been sewing since I was 7 yrs old. Taught by my mom and various other people along the way. I also knit, have a embroidery machine ( still green with this one), a serger, and am learning how to quilt. I worked up until 2003 as a Industrial Seamstress, loved it. While on Medical Leave, Boss sold the company to settle his divorce to a business in Kansas. Now I make purses for a local teacher (retired this past school year) who is starting her own Business. Great part-time job as it allows me to make pocket money to buy more fabric to make things for my new Grandbaby, due to arrive in January!!!!!! DH and I will be celebrating our 27th Wedding Anniversary this coming December 27. We have 2 children. Our oldest (a girl,25 -soon to be 26) is married 2 years now, finishing at her College in October and will become a Mommy in January (if not sooner!!!!) DD and SIL bought a house one year ago for their 1st Anniversay. Our youngest (a boy-22-soon to be 23) works three jobs and will be starting back to the local University in a matter of weeks. We are lucky if we ever get to see him as he is always on the run!!!! No sweetheart in his life right now, says he's to busy to have one. DH and I are empty-nesters with 4 furballs and 1 lone fish in the fish tank!! We have lived in our house since 1992, but hope to relocate sometime in the near future. I would love to either go to the Ocean, the shores of Lake Erie, or Las Vegas. :mrgreen:

You could choose the Great White North! Now that would be different again!

Right now I think that I would move anywhere that is not this Town!!!! I love the State, just not where we are at. The entire State is loosing jobs left and right, with no hopes of anything new coming in. The new Governor has his hands full trying to get business to either not close up completely and to get new ones to move into the state.
DH was born and raised here in the town we live in and he's ready to move to some place better than here.
