One Wonderful Year!

It's been a year of blogging, it doesn't seem possible; but, 226 posts later... it most definitely is! Thanks to everyone who has commented, read, visited and generally supported and encouraged this blogsite since July 13, 2006. I am sincerely and genuinely appreciative! This is the entrance to the studio from the side porch... from the outside "looking in", if you will.

Meggie tagged me this week for the Five Things Meme. I'm "it" I guess you could say; another closer look inside, this time of Mrs. Goodneedle, for what that's worth.

I wish to do before I die:
1. Hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, my husband and I have been talking about doing this for a long time.
2. See my story published, read and loved by children worldwide: Mrs Goodneedle and the Miracle Quilt
3. Ride a jet-ski.
4. Swim in a pool of water at the base of a waterfall on an exotic island.
5. Rock grandchildren (my own) to sleep.

I can do:
1. Make a quilt, start to finish... there isn't any part of the process I choose not to do myself.
2. Commit to things, or people, or relationships or tasks. I'm not a quitter, I follow through; sometimes to the point of exhaustion (mine and everyone else's!).
3. Be organized.
4. Be open minded to new places and adventures.
5. Pray.

I can't do:
1. Wait to open presents! It's true, I can't. I'm a 'snooper' much to my family's dismay!
2. Sing.
3. Sleep late.
4. Sky dive. No one could force me to jump out of a perfectly good airplane!
5. Take myself too seriously.

that attract me to the opposite sex:
All I can list here are the things that attracted me to my husband and they're actually the things that I find attractive in all people, regardless of gender:
1. Sense of humor.
2. Honesty.
3. Someone who challenges me to think, spar, debate, discuss...
4. Someone who is devoted to their family.
5. Someone who shares my sense of commitment.

I was also supposed to list five celebrity 'crushes'. I cannot, I admit to being completely disillusioned by celebrities. I'm not going to tag anyone else, either. Please do feel free to play along on your blogs of you're so inclined... it's always fun to learn more about each other, beyond the profile glimpse. I'll be gone for the next week or so, but will be back with fresh ideas for the another year's worth of new posts! Until then, thanks again for one wonderful year and remember, as always:

Life is Good!
