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.

Quilting: Black and white fabric challege

You may have noticed that I discovered Zentangles a couple of years back.  Well I just love it but not so good at it.  I'm an artist wannabe.  Anyway, my friend Mary Jane and I meet half way every month for lunch and crafting.  Yep at the restaurant, Ryan's in Salisbury, we shelp in our crafts and we play most of the day in a corner table.  Lately we've been mostly working on our zentangles and chatting.  In March we decided to do a black and white challenge in fabric.  Well here are the results.  Mary Jane decided to do a jacket.

  I had planned to do some wonky birds on a white shirt and didn't like my birds so change of plan.  I ended up making a small wall hanging.  I like it a lot.

My husband is very interested in Zentangle quilting, but he hasn't time to play yet. And I'm enamored with black and white projects right now. So I love your friend's jacket, and that little quilt is wonderful! I need to find a corner spot to play once in a while like you do!

I must say collecting the black and white fabrics has been most fun. Have an idea for another little project with the fabrics so will post when I get finished. Thanks for sharing. If you could only see the little corner I work in.

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.
