Here is  meme that is floating about the blog-o-sphere:

Go to Google Images and search for each question – choose an image and post it.

What is your age on your next birthday?

A place to which you’d like to travel:
Yes, that is Southern Italy!

A favorite object:
Okay, so it is more than one…what can I say?

What is your favorite food?
It used to be this:
Until I developed a life threatening allergy to shellfish. So now it is this:

What is your favorite animal?

What is your favorite color?

Where did you grow up?
No, not in the Concord, New Hampshire capital building…but close!

Where do you live now?

Name of a past pet?
I luckily never owned a grizzly bear…but I once had a dog named Kodiak.

Name of a past love?
He didn’t look exactly like this…he looked more like this:

Screen name?

First Name?
If I had been a boy, my parents would have named me Peter – does that surprise you?

Middle Name?

The days are getting shorter and the nights leave behind frost on the ground. About this time every year I feel the pull of my craft projects…the desire to curl up in front of the fire with a cup of tea and a needle; to surround myself with bits of fabric and colored threads; to make tiny stitches and watch a picture develop.

This is one of my current projects:

I started this at least 15 years ago! But, I’m slowly getting it done. It’s counted cross stitch and stitched on tan 18 count Aida.

Lest you think I never complete anything, here are some of my finished projects from years ago:

Pattern is by Barbara Bourgeau-Richards – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1991).

New England Sampler – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1993)

Victorian House – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1990).

I’ve made a lot of counted cross stitch projects, and also done some Hardanger – but, these I’ve given away to various friends and family and unfortunately did not take photos of them!
