I'm a registered nurse in a emergency room. I was injured by a stretcher in 2006 and have been out on a LOA since 2/2008. I've had 2 back surgery's and it looks like I will not be able to return to work. The first time I was out in 2007 I did 13 needlepoints. When I had to stop working again in 3/2008 I decided to do some quilting which I had not done since 1992. I love to crochet, knit, needlepoint, embroidery, small crafts, plaster craft (I have painted over 150 christmas village pieces whitch I now display year round) and of course quilt. I have 2 children, Kerrianne and Douglas, who are both adults now, 2 birds( a senagal parrot and a cockateil), 5 dogs (smooth dachshound, long hair dackshound, wire hair dachshound, miniture schnauser, and a bernese mountaun dog, and 1 husband (who is the only one I can not train). I watch Sci-fi and read sci-fi/fantasy.
