About me

Occupation N/A
Location Small Town, Georgia, United States
Introduction I am a German born and raised American citizen who likes to crochet and knit. I sell my creations on Etsy and in my neighborhood. I also make gifts for family and friends. I'm a crochet and knitting instructor. I especially enjoy time outside with my dog and taking photographs. I'm on a weight-loss journey! I'm a big animal and nature lover and appreciate fresh fruits and vegetables, preferrably organic and locally grown. I am concerned for animals and our environment, especially our disappearing honey bees. I am a reluctant puppeteer who likes to write and dabble in poetry. I like going to the movies and watching ballroom dancing, figure skating, nature programs and cooking shows on TV. I'm into coffee. Summer thunder storms are fantastic and I really miss the snow. I'm a pickle connoisseur. I'm not very accomplished at these, but I like to play Chess and the accordion. I LOVE Christmas and enjoy baking German cookies while listening to Christmas music. I enjoy picnics, live performances, fairs and the circus. I collect Fairy Tales. I find hang gliding fascinating, but would gladly settle for a hot air balloon ride.

Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Whittling with soap because I can't whisle and soap is softer to work with.
