About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in '76. I love meeting new people so hope you 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 '01. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I teach Stamp Classes in my stamp room and would love to meet you.

Sewing Corner & Quilting: Microwave Bowls

While I've been playing, now sure if I've shared this.  I learned how to make these back in Nov. and have been making lots.  Seems like it takes me forever.  Idea is that you can sit your bowl of soup, etc. in the microwave fabric bowl.  This way you don't need pot holders to take it out of the microwave and you can just eat in your chair if you wish.

Now Don has discovered he likes it for ice cream, cereal, warmed up left overs.  He uses his all the time.  I gave away a few for Christmas and so far everyone has loved them.  Great gifts.

Lots of directions on youtube and Pinterest.  Mine starts out at 10.5" sq. piece of fabric.   MUST be 100% cotton fabric, batting and thread.
Happy to share if anyone needs help making one.... but if you make one, you'll need 2 for sure.

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.
