About Me

I AM TAKING A COUPLE MONTHS BREAK FROM SWAPPING. THE LADT SWAP I DID GOT ME A 3, AND I HAVEN'T RECOVERED FROM THE BAD FEELINGS. HAVE BEEN VERY BUSY MAKING QUILTS for a living, and no time fir seaps right now. Hope to ve back soon. Have reached age 65 this year. Living alone with all my animals. I was an RN for over 35 years. I love making and receiving ATCs. Dotee dolls are fun too.

Swapping is a way for me to connect with others, have positive feedback in my life, and have an outlet for my creativity. Hosting a swap every now and then is something I enjoy. There is so much in this world to find inspiring!   When I read others' profiles I marvel at how well they describe themselves. I think of myself as a nurse, mother, grandmother, artist, poet, quiltmaker, dog & cat lover, country girl, passionate woman. Not at all complicated. Lol

I will not flake. I will send out my swaps. I make an attempt to have the swap item ready to go by the time partners are assigned. The '3's' on my ratings come from a bad time in my life several years ago. Be glad to tell you all about it but don't want to put it out there for everyone to read.

Favorite Music

*Willie Nelson and many other country singers. The Willis Clan. Lady Gaga. Maroon 5. Little Big Town. Need to Breathe.

  • I enjoy Tschaichowski (or however you spell it) and some other classical music.


Favorite Movies

any movie with Johnny Depp in it.

Favorite Television

The Dog Whisperer 19 Kids & Counting Married At First Sight My 600 Pound Life Hoarders

Favorite Crafts

Quilting, painting, ATCs, designing quilt patterns. I also crochet. Scrapbooking is a passion. I love Victorian style and Craftsman style. I especially like getting original painting ATC's.

My Latest NEWS

In October 2014 I moved to a mobile home on an acre in a rural area near Lawson Missouri. There is peace and quiet and serenity in this place. I am looking forward to planting a garden and filling my flower beds with blooms. This place uses propane for heating and cooking. I have been making t shirt quilts and denim quilts to supplement my social security check. I advertise on the local swap shops on Facebook. I have lost 43 pounds. Still have another 45 to go.

About Me

*Tuxedo cats!** * Daffodils are my favorite flower. ** * Chocolate and coffee are my addictions. ** For Christmas in 2011 I got a Kuerig coffeemaker. I say I can only make one perfect cup of coffee at a time.

Fabriqueen rated for A.Q. Sun Burst Mug Rug! on Aug 14, 2015
Comment: Hi Linda, I'm sorry that I am so late rating this swap. We were looking for my hubby's phone in his truck and I found your package. I didn't know it was there. (Neither did he.) I fussed at him good. Thank you so much! I love the purples you used. I hope your weather has gotten better and didn't do what ours did. When our rains went away it has brought on record high temps. It's just HOT in Texas. Now we want rain!!
Response: I'm so glad you found the package! Was wondering. Love these mugs rugs and am waiting for your next one to be posted.

Comment: Linda, Thanks so much for the swap package - you went above and beyond and I so enjoyed getting it! What a cool little digital print of your painting and I love sunflowers so of course loved the Kansas themed ATC - and the mint tea (yummy) was an added bonus!
Response: You are quite welcome. I enjoy reading my swap partners profile and trying to find something to send that would be special to that person.

Linda, you are too funny! Yes, give me more hearts please! I facilitate our local monthly ATC night and we love doing different techniques and flips & folds with our ATC's. Some are shaped, some open and read like a book, others have multiple layers and most contain a metal charm. So much fun and glad you liked it!
