Quiz: What Time of Day are You?

You Are Midnight

You are more than a little eccentric, and you're apt to keep very unusual habits.
Whether you're a nightowl, living in a commune, or taking a vow of silence - you like to experiment with your lifestyle.
Expressing your individuality is important to you, and you often lie awake in bed thinking about the world and your place in it.
You enjoy staying home, but that doesn't mean you're a hermit. You also appreciate quality time with family and close friends.

i think this reflects a true ME?

new year - pets for my DDs

this package arrived on 26th Dec it is xmas gift to myself. Most of all are lace yarns, which I get from stash of another knitter.

my youngest was annoyed coz I bought the tortoise magnets for my mum but not for I promised to buy her a "lively" tortoise, ended bought four , each represent each of us in the family. So last night they were busy with taking care of their new pets.


HAPPY NEW YEAR, ...may it be a peaceful and blessed new year to all. I concluded 2007 with 54.15m of 100% patchwork cotton.

Many thanks to my Good Friend who present this as a gift to me. Total is 54.15m of cotton fabric. My girls and me are most delighted and excited to plan for next patchwork project.
