Okay, Marilee and Carol. You two have been wanting to know all the secrets of the chest, so here they are! Please don't be deceived... this does not represent my entire shuttle collection! If I ever stop tatting, I'll be able to put all my shuttles in one place and count how many I have... who am I kidding? ; )

I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
