Hi! My name is Kathy, Kathryn when I'm in trouble. I'm 12 years old and it's 1972. I've been trying to see my future in a crystal ball and today I finally made it! I see 2015! I have MEN as sons! MEN with facial hair! I have a husband (giggle). Things are looking good for me! And what about my dream of being an illustrator and writing books like Murvery's Pet Shop....

The picture is getting clearer.....yes...I see lots of pencils and Sharpies.....and ......and..... dishes and laundry? What? And what about those boxes and boxes of fabric and patterns? Oh! Look at that sewing machine! It's nothing like Mom's sweet black Singer or Grandma's treadle. I wonder if my grown up me still has the quilt I made years ago when I was 10?
I see lots of drawing and painting stuff....and they're all MINE! No sharing with Bonnie! Speaking of Bonnie... I just finished these family portraits. Want to see?

Oh my gosh! I think that's my married name right there on the selvage! Schmitz?! Hey I picked strawberries this summer with a boy named Steve Schmitz..... he was so cute! You don't suppose.....

I see lots of quilts too. It looks like the 4-H sewing paid off!
