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.

Thread - Yarn Challenge

 I belong to a quilting bee called the Beecassos, an art bee that meets monthly mostly for show and tell of challenges.  The challenge about 3 months ago was to use this multicolored yarn and/or some navy thread given to us by Linda Worsley.   Well of course I left my project til last Monday night, due next morning, Tuesday.  Well impulse, I had seen a weeping willow and thought perfect.  Ok, so the pink blobs are supposed to be mounts of flowers.  The green is scrapss of fabrics.  The sky is made with some of my Stampin Up Inks.  The trunk of the tree is using, finally some of the furniture fabric samples I brought home that are neatly now in a new home on the shelves. The bird house, yes a little tall, was an after thought to balance out the left side.  Yes I know I needed to go around the edges with satin stitch at least 2 more times.  Maybe I will.    Well it's about 8.5 x 11" and I like it.  I rose to the occasion and met the challenge.

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.
