About Me

Live in Berryton, Kansas, USA with my husband, three dogs and one cat, (yes we are animal lovers!) on our country "estate" (if 3/4 of an acre and 1969 brick ranch count as an estate...). I grew up as the daughter of a career Army soldier, then became one myself for three wonderful years, two of them in Germany (for which I am eternally grateful) and still have the travel bug, dreaming about going back overseas "one of these days."

Things I like to swap -- so far I've done a ton of swaps for crocheted items, like squares for granny square afghans, Christmas ornaments, fabric for quilting and other fabric projects.

It has been a little while since I did my last swap and since that time I've amassed a humongous collection of paper products for scrapbooks, greeting cards, mini albums and so on. It would be fun to swap some of my unloved-but-awesome products with others!

Favorite Crafts

Crochet, knit, bead jewelry, sewing and other needlecraft, scrapbooks, greeting cards. I have loads of books and magazines, along with tons of printed patterns for things I intend to make "one of these days." Current WIPs: log cabin quilt for my king sized bed, crocheted farm set, Army scrapbook (won the album and have yet to transfer the pics out of the album that barely survived my house fire back in 1990), and various things that I've long forgotten about but that will resurface one of these days. Oh, did I mention that I suffer from CADD (Crafter's Attention Deficit Disorder!)... in other words, I get bored easily and tend to move on to something new and exciting if something takes too long, requires "ingredients" that I'd have to go buy, becomes too difficult, and so the story goes...

Favorite Television

Big Bang Theory, Downton Abbey, all the CSI's and cop shows, Heartland, HGTV cooking (sniff sniff, don't get that channel anymore!), gardening and craft shows, Lifetime and Hallmark movies (thankful for Netflix and Spirit Clips), Ellen, Scandal, Revenge, McCleod's Daughters (via Netflix), and other miscellaneous shows.

Favorite Colors

Deep forest green, dark purple, chestnut brown (and pretty much all the fall colors that you'd see on the trees), pastel pink and mint green.

Favorite Fabrics

I absolutely LOVE anything vintage, especially the old flour sack prints, paisley, small prints for quilting, holiday fabric with gold sparkly dye printed on it. I like cotton for quilting and am also looking for 100% rayon for making chenille. Any kind of natural fabric that can be used for aplique would be great too (homespun, corduroy, denim, flannel, etc.)

Favorite Food and Drink

I love drinking coffee and tea. Here are some of the flavors and such that I like: Vanilla hazelnut tea, wine-infused coffee (just discovered that on our 2007 farm tour at a winery and absolutely LOVE i!), caramel, strawberries (especially when they're doused with Stevia and put over warm gluten free shortcake, topped with whipped cream), blueberries, pumpkin pie with oodles of coconut whipped cream on top, apple pie ala mode, garlic on just about anything except sweets, pork loin cooked all day in the crock pot... okay enough about food...

Things I Collect

Yarn (especially wool that can be felted), vintage fabric (cotton), crochet and knit magazines, cookbooks (really love the old ones that came with appliances and the ones with old pictures in them)
