Personal

AKA Merilee
My husband of just about 44years and I moved to London 4 years ago in May; our “real” home is a home we designed and built on a lake in northern Minnesota. My husband retired once but as was the way with most pensions in the early-mid 2000′s, ours melted and he went back to work.
I have always done some kind of hand craft from embroidery to counted cross-stitch to quilting to needlepoint and now beading. As I love color and designing with it, this bead addiction has become expensive but I don’t anticipate quitting anytime soon!
