Hello and welcome to my new blog! I am so excited to have you here; thank you for coming by.

As you may know, I’ve been blogging since 2003 on my old xanga blog about my life as a mom, my knitwear design business, my passion for teaching  and my commitment to eating delicious homemade desserts. Added recently: my enthusiasm (if not talent) for playing the ukulele.

Originally, my blogging goal was to keep in touch with my far-away-family Back East when we moved from New York to the Seattle area.  As a stay-at-home-mom I developed a wonderful extended family of what I call “imaginary friends” – many remain friends to this day.

I returned to work as a teacher in 2006 and my blogging became inconsistent.  I’ve gone quiet for periods as my real-life demands put writing on a back burner. But I do love to write, and I especially love the conversations and community that come out of blogging.

I hope you’ll join in the conversation here on my blog as I renew my commitment to writing on a daily basis. This blog will also post my twitter feed, so when micro-blogging is the best I can do, it will fill in between more substantial posts.

Subscribe below to get email updates when I post. You can also register for the blog in a box on the left which should keep you logged in for posting replies.

Coming¬†shortly, I’ll be celebrating the launching of my new blog with a knitting-related contest. I have some fun giveaways and such. Will you use¬†your social networking superpowers to help get the word out that I’m blogging again?¬†I have a plan I will share with you soon…

I very excited to re-connect with my friends, both real and imaginary, and add some new ones as well!

yopp! we are here! say hello!
