About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

Later yesterday, Steve and I traveled over to my friend Sarah's house to meet up with everyone and make tamales the traditional way!

We do this at least once a year, and its always so much fun!

I grew up with this group of people and I would jump in front of a bullet for each and every one of them. And truthfully where I live when I am not at school, getting shot at is not out of the question.

I have the best group of friends a girl can ask for, and a boyfriend that they all approve of! that makes me :)

Filling the pot

They turned out delicious, and we made enough for Sarah to give out a bag to each person!

Dinner for the next couple days!
