About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

Beverage quilt challenge: Iced tea in red and white

Just rejoined the local quilt guild and last year joined a local quilting bee "BEEcassos". It's more of an art group and they do some challenges. I needed a reason to dust off my sewing corner. The Forsyth Piecers and Quilters is having a quilt show March 2012. The BEE is doing a red/white challenge, 8 x 10" piece and our theme is "Southern Comfort" our favorite beverages. Some interesting beverages. Anyone who knows me knows mine is Southern Sweet Tea. So not sure if I pulled it off or not, but here is my version. Hope it shows up well. I do see now that the red text (just on the photo) takes away from it just a bit. I made the little napkin the glass is sitting on. Debating whether I need some little red seeds on the lemon slice as well as some glaze over the ice cubes. Comments and suggestions welcomed. All of the mini quilts will be attached to each other with either red binder clips or red ribbon. I think there will be 9 on display in the show.

Great job, Joan! Quilting always overwhelmed me. I'm impressed!

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
