I've been married to my best friend for 31 years. We have three sons, three granddaughters, and three grandsons. I work for local government. My favorite color is RED!! But, I'm decorating my new kitchen in Yellow and Red and a Mary Engelbreit "Queen of the Kitchen" theme. I collect Mary Engelbreit, Precious Moments, Barbie, Clocks, snowglobes, Antique Hankies, Fiestaware and quilts. I love classic cars and drive a 1967 Chevelle myself.
Pansies are my favorite flowers. And I love socks!
I've been searching for Mary Engelbreit fabrics and they are really hard to find in rural Arizona. Anybody sending me Mary Engelbreit fabrics, even fat quarters, will automatically receive a heart! Re: swaps/deadlines/rating -- I always send my swap packages and I always rate the people who send to me. So if it's been a while since the deadline and you haven't received from me, please DO let me know so I can track it down or re-send as needed. And if you sent me something a while back, but I haven't thanked or rated you, then contact me because I probably didn't receive it. (Thanks to "Tia Bel" for this excerpt since I copied it from your profile. I thought it was a good idea!)
