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.

My Fabric bowl finally finished

I belong to a quilting bee that challenges you to think out of the box and often the gals will share how to various projects.  While this is not so way out there, I probably would have never tried this on my own.  This is my clothesline and fabric bowl that I made square once finished.  Pretty pleased with it.  I think I might try to make another.   Good way to use up scraps.  Wish I had maybe tried some fabric with more color.  My fabric was what I call Mushy colors, not really batik.  Also best with fabric that color runs thru to both sides. 
I was going to a weekend scrapbooking crop and I'm running out of pictures and I just couldn't get it together so I decided to take the sewing machine instead.  Maybe I'll post some other items I got done.

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.
