Happy Spring, everyone! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and hope you'll take the time to do the same.

My name is A. Catherine Noon, but call me Noony. I'm an author and textile artist in Chicago, Illinois, USA. I love to write and I love to play with writing. During the next several weeks I'll share some of my favorite techniques for getting onto the page and staying there, whether its for fun or for serious. At the end of the day, at least in my opinion, they are one and the same.

In addition to writing, I am a knitter, weaver, and embroiderer. I even like to combine writing and textiles. I have three cats and a dog and my husband and I love to travel. He's a professional photographer and web designer, so we have a creative household. Except, of course, when the kitten gets in the way.

What about you? Here's some questions to prime the pump, if you're of a mind:

-What's your name?
-What do you like to write?
-What do you like to do besides writing?
-What do you want to gain from this workshop?
-Anything else you'd like to share?
