I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Dawn, and I love this idea so much that I actually did my own, without being tagged, in May of this year... One odd "thread" that runs through these lists, is that so many people who love sewing also love science...

I never get around to tagging others - it requires more brain power than I've got left these days, but I will get to it at some point...

Eight Things About Me

1 - I designed and made my own wedding gown in 1996, using less than $100 in materials. Here I am, with my Dad...

2 - I collect old sewing books from the late 1800's because I love them so much... They have a real energy and meticulousness about them that is just incredible!

3 - I feel that I have a guardian angel with me at all times, and have felt that way since I was a little girl.

4 - Although I don't believe in astrology, I almost never get along with Pisces... What does that mean???

5 - I receieved an unsolicited bear hug from Mike Tyson when I was about 17 years old. He thought I was "pretty", he said. (I was working in an upscale boutique where he was a patron)

6 - I believe love is a vital ingredient in all creative endeavors, and that is what gives any work of art its "voice".

7 - I believe resilience is the single most important ingredient for success. It forces you to redefine failure in your life.

8 - I label all of the cords to my computer and sewing machinery, so I know which outlets and ports they are each plugged into.
