Well hi all, guess it is my turn. My mane is Jill, I have two wonderful grown children, a boy and a girl; 6 beautiful grandchildren -3 boys and 3 girls (13 years old to 9 days old!) Both of my children live within five minutes of me (if I don't catch a light)
I am a widow, my husband passed away 18 years ago from leukemia. I am VERY involved in The American Cancer Society - Relay For Life.
I LOVE to sew, I too have been sewing since 7th grade (but I am probably older than Ebeth!)
I have lived in the Corunna - Owosso are all of my life.
I am disabled due to several things, so I have a lot of time to sew (when I'm able)
I have been over weight for years, but found nothing that has helped - until I found Sparks.
I guess that is about it for me. Hope to get to know some more of you real soon...

Hi, I'm Ebeth. I have a wonderful husband and 3 great kids. One boy, who is already grown and married and lives 2.5 hours away. :( Our daughters are Rebecca 15, and Sarah 13 whom we are in our 7th year of homeschooling.
I'm also a Catholic and a Master Catechist and a Catholic blogger.
Sewing has been in my life since 7th grade....as my kids say, the dark ages...sheesh!
Our family moved from Houston, TX 8.5 years ago to the coastal side of NC where barely anyone sews. I started teaching simple sewing classes at the Hancock Fabrics in town 7 years ago and now I am teaching at the community college and running a small alterations business as well.
For years, I have needed to lose at least 40 lbs, but recently, it has grown to 62 lbs. My daughter-in-law told me about Sparkpeople.com. It took me several months to decide to join, then at least a year of casually logging on here and there to finally get 'sparked'! I bought "The Spark" in January and since then I have lost about 10 lbs....need to get refocused and lost more!
I will keep mine brief. Most of what you can learn about me is on my page.
I am a SAHM of 3 (Brittney 6.5yrs, Xander 4.5yrs, and Bailie 2.5yrs) and like all moms my shift never ends.
I love to sew whenever I have spare time. I work in sections, so not to forget I have kids....LOL
I love to crochet: blankets, Baptism gowns, doll clothes, doilies,....
I want to learn to play the guitar in time for Christmas. If only one song to make memories for my kids I will be happy.
I am a Catholic and I do my best to attend church on Sundays. However, I put my family before my needs and wants.
Not sure whatelse to share. I am determined to do my best and as healthy as I can. I am also learning I can eat my cake, so long as I do not go over board...LOL
Please everyone (there is 85 of use now) share and lets bring this board together.
I Grannys5 has a Summer Challenge. I am waiting to hear what it is about. What other challenges would y'all liek to do?
I think this summer (June1 - August 31) we should challenge ourselves to drink 10glasses of water a day.
Get some kind of exercise (I am bad for this) 3 days a week.
Let me know.
God Bless all His crafters.
