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.... using up my fabrics

While my initial goal was to use up some of my fabrics and make preemie quilts for Brenner Children's hospital, it's also been a chance for me to practice my free motion quilting.  It's been fun sewing again and I hope someone on the receiving end will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.  Not sure if you can click on them to make them bigger.                               This one was small samples of fabric, about 8" that I pieced together with yellow to form this baby quilt.
This one was a panel of little frogs with a yellow strip.  Rather than cutting it off I decided to try my hand a writing with my sewing machine on the side, the same quote as around the frogs.

This was a small panel in the middle.  I had to add yellow on the sides and turquoise at top and bottom.  Happened to have 3 little cats I could cut out and applique to stretch out the design.

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.
