Born and raised in Vermont, I now reside on the western border of Toronto, Ontario. It's beautiful here! With 5 children grown and gone, I have lots of time in my kitchen - just my husband & I to feed!! It keeps the neighbors happy as I'm constantly knocking at door's with a plate of goodies in hand! Previously a teacher of theraputic crafting & a chocolatier (Sweet Impressions in NB doing molds, carvings & individual chocolates), I am now designing needlework and loving it! I have a large cupboard of cookbooks, downsized when I moved into this condo (I did have an actual CLOSET of cookbooks!) I think nothing of curling up with a good cookbook read! My children enjoy the same and have large and varied collections of their own. <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC10-NoPhoto-Participant.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/cws3.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
