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: Preemie Quilts for 2014, so far

Well for those who have been to my house and craft rooms, you know I have a lot of "Stuff" as my husband calls it.  I have bunches of fabric and I have this fear that I'll die and he will just toss it all out not realizing how much I have invested.  So goal has been to make some preemies for Brenners Children's hospital to use some of it up.  Of course along the way I've had to buy some fabrics to go with what I have.  Are you laughing because you understand.

My goal was also to practice my free motion skills.  It's a learning process.

    Sadly the purple one was to be a preemie but it had some issues so it made it's way to the nursing home as a lap blanket.  

 The rest are preemies for the hospital.  Here's what I've gotten done so far this year, 2014.  My goal has been to do 12 a year.

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.
