Introduction for Fawkes62

Hi everyone! My name is Shannon and I'm a mom to three children, a girl age 6, a boy age 10, and another girl age 12. We have a cat named Allie and a dog named Morgan. We also have three fish tanks with guppies and snails. I recently returned to the workforce and am currently working part-time for one of the local school districts in their print center. Prior to starting at this job I had an in-home daycare and was a stay at home mom. When I'm not working I have several hobbies that I enjoy. One is sewing and I am in the middle of making a memory quilt for one of my children with the goal of making one for each of them. It is a slow process as I don't work on it everyday but I enjoy it.

Good to meet you. I tried to make a sampler for my daughterand never did finish, so I think you are amazing to tackle three quilts.

I started a couple of years ago on the quilts and didn't make much progress for quite a while. I've finally got most of the front done for the first quilt, but still have a few more rows to get done. I'll finish someday, just no idea when.

Thank you, I hope I enjoy it here too. I've tried a few other sites, one I didn't really like and the other I did. Unfortunately the second has been doing things I don't like, so now I'm looking for something different. Hopefully this will be the right fit for me.

Welcome to the site. I just joined as well, getting approved this morning. I have a good feeling about this site, very friendly, etc. I've already met several writers that I was connected with on other writing sites.

It is a fun introduction Shanon! and I think snail is a good name for your fish? Hehehehehe... sewing is not really my hobby but I usually need it when I am making a notebook. God bless the works of our hands.

Welcome to PP! I am a mobile user and now loving this site! I love sewing too. I learned to sew at age 5! ;)

Feels good to welcome yet another PPer. This is a great site for those who have ideas to share and reading through your introduction you will be an asset here.

Before I chose I site I looked around to see if I knew anyone on them. There aren't many that I know on here but this was the site I liked the most so I decided to give it a try. I'm hoping to meet people here that I enjoy reading what they write and so far have found a few.

We haven't named any of the fish but we have snails in the tanks to control the algae growth. I didn't used to sew but have found I like it, I just have to make more time for it.

So far I like it here, but I'm still getting used to the layout of it.

I haven't tried this site on mobile yet, figured I'd get used to it on my laptop first. Wow, 5 is young to learn to sew, I can't imagine even trying to teach my 6 year old how to sew yet.

Thank you, I'm feeling very welcome here. Everyone has been very friendly that I have met here so far.
