    I missed that you were a runner until. Admittedly, I get a little excited when sewing bloggers I read are also runners because it just means that we have one more thing in common. Do you ever write about running here or elsewhere?

      Yes, I LOVE to run. It’s my #1 sport. I saw on your blog that you do triathlons. That is so cool . . . I’ve always wanted to do one. It’s funny that you asked if I write about running, I was wondering if people would be interested in that on this blog because it is a big part of my life. I run just about everyday.
