What a joy it was to launch my email and find a note from Anastasia from For the Knit of It telling me she had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! This is the best possible honor because it comes from a fellow blogger and knitter. So, first and foremost, thank you Anastasia.

7 Random Things About Me:
- I can not sing. (Well, I can, but you wouldn’t want to listen).
- I can twirl a baton.
- I peek at the answers when solving crossword puzzles.
