My husband & I enjoy retirement and live on a floating home in the Columbia River. Our rambunctious dog Sadie shares our enthusiam for river life.
My passion is creating cloth dolls. I also enjoy sewing, knitting, crocheting and playing with paper. I'm a proud mother of three and grandmother of five.
EVERY SWAP SHOULD END WITH A SMILE
Swap-bot makes me happy - both in sending and receiving. I hope my swaps make you happy too.
I promise to send my swaps on time & with good intentions. I promise to rate your swap promptly and fairly. If you do not receive a swap from me or feel that I did not meet the requirements, please contact me as soon as possible so that I can make things right.
I enjoy interesting, interested people, lazy, sleep-in mornings and up-until-dawn creative, crafting nights. I like kayaking on the river with my husband, knitting with my friends and chatting with my daughters about the small and large events in life.
I like trims, ribbons, buttons, fabric, yarn, fibers and beads that I can use for creating cloth dolls. I like fabric pens, pigma pens, gel pens and watercolor pencils.
I enjoy seeing clever uses for common objects.
I'm consistently drawn to subdued Autumn colors . . . browns, golds, olive greens, burnt reds. Our home is Craftsman/Bungalow style and I love the earthy color pallet. It's warm, welcoming, a bit nostalgic.
My new craft room is lighter and more girly than the rest of the house, with white furniture and a few dusty/adobe pink and sky blue accents.
I am fascinated by the emotional impact of colors as well as black and white, sepia and monotones. I love to experiment with color interactions.
Jane Austin, Joseph Conrad, Tony Hillerman, Janet Evanovich, Alexander McCall Smith, Stephanie Meyer, Olive Ann Burns . . . I like well-written books with characters I can care about.
My favorite movies are oldies: Casablanca, Key Largo, Touch of Evil, Russia House, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Sweet Home Alabama, Captain Ron, Guns of Navarone.
Eclectic tastes: Country, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Classical
