Memories of Me/Erica/Moira

I'm shamelessly copying this from Dana's blog. It sure is neat to read all the memories that people have of her! Please participate...I'd love to read what you have to say, whether you have met me in real life or not, no matter how small the memory is...and I'll respond to ALL comments in the comments section.

Post a memory you have of me. Any memory at all. Then post this in your own blog if you want to see what others remember about you.

And this is me.

Thanks for playing.

One great memory I have of you goes back to the first time I came across your site with pictures of your WIPs. I misunderstood, and thought you were stitching two different Noah's Submarine at the same time! I emailed you commenting on that, and ever since then--and its been years now, you've been sending me email to let me know when you've posted a new picture.

Until then, I had never seen anyone's WIPs but my own, I don't know anyone who stitches. Seeing your WIPS has been a wonderful inspiration to me. You've inspired me to start a stitching rotation, and to try much more complex stitching than I had done in the past. I am very grateful for your influence.

So many memories! Endless emails/IMs when I first started rotating and working out lists and your wonderfully encouraging notes. Another is racing to finish the teacup rose at the Stitchworks retreat and you staying up late with Mom so she *would* finish! I can't thank you enough for that one :)

I don't have a blog but I wanted to post a comment too. I remember seeing you around the TWBB since the late 90's or so. I asked for your updates on WIPS and was suprised one day to see your BFL pictures included in your WIP update. That started me on my own journey and I lost 30 pounds... all because you sent that link!! It's always a struggle and it's a comfort to know that as incredible inspiration that you are, you too struggle with it, so we can struggle together.

Thank you Erica!

Erica was one of the first people to make a comment on my blog and I was so excited that someone other than my mother was reading it!

Good grief, where do I start? I guess at the beginning...

My first memory of you is at that very first TWBB get together. I remember comparing notes on how much we both loved Chuck's loaded fries! And being impressed with all your stitching. And how we were all kind of freaked out about JFK Jr's plane going down...

Wow - just one?

I rememer when you got married. When you bought your house. When you got Katie and Simon. When your house had the foundation repaired. So many more things (I am not even mentioning your stitching).

But, mostly, when I think of you, I think of an amazingly strong woman. Someone who is powerful, someone who is transformed. I think about you almost every time I go to the gym (so, lots!) - you are one of the inspirations who keeps me going!

I remember a lady who is so amazingly focused on getting fit, that it inspired a great many people (me included) to work harder towards that end.

Thank you! {{hug}}

I remember you posting a comment to ask how in the world my brother managed to break a bone in his elbow. I followed the link to your blog and I've been reading it ever since! I love seeing your WIPs progress on your website, too.

First you were the girl with the huge rotation who could actually stick to it. Then you were the girl going on a BFL quest. Now you I think of you as the girl who can do anything she sets her mind to.

I'll share my very first memory. I stumbled across your BFL tracker site while I was looking for inspiration for my own BFL challenge. When I saw your pics my eyes popped outta my head! I was so amazed at the extent of your transformation that I had to email you to say so and hopefully get some tips. I got that and SO much more... turned out that you were the biggest sweetheart ever. I really consider myself lucky that I have you as a friend!!

There... mooshygooshy enough for ya? :)

I wrote a comment earlier, but it doesn't seem to have posted. So I'll write what I can remember. I tried to think of a memory that was a) not our first meeting, b) not too recent, and c) didn't involve us b*tching about something. I came to the conclusion that a) my long-term memory is bad, b) my short-term memory is good up to about 3 months, and c) we b*tch a lot! :-)

I'm going to go with a bundle of memories. The times that we visited Dan. Talking politics with Dan. Talking religion with Dan. Trying to pick mattes and frames for someone else while he rapped us on the fingers or told us to be quiet. We don't get any of that character at the new place! Anyway, that's my memory. At least, that's the one I'm willing to share on a public blog. :-)
