About Me

I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos, in an emotional support program, for almost 4 years now! I still miss it, but I love having freedom to do other things that I love. I am Gramma to two little boys 6 and 3, and a little granddaughter who is 20 mo.old. and a newly arrived infant foster grandson 2 mo, old. I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband, our little Beagle mixed pup, Angel, and our elderly kitty Cooney. We live in a rural farming area. We're not farmers but love having a garden and raising some chickens. I also spend alot of my free time sewing just about anything. Right now I am working on a block quilt for my spare room and some little outfits for my grand daughter. I love hiking, photography, sewing, crocheting and making jewelry. Sewing is on the top of my list though. I am currently working on a block quilt for our spare room where my grandsons sleep when the visit. I also love swapping postcards, letters, small surprise packages, buttons, photo cards, and especially FABRIC!.
I love to read books but mostly in the winter. I love to cook and try new and interesting recipes. I have been gluten free and sugar free for over a year now and feel so much healthier for it. So if you are sending me recipes, keep that in mind. Thanks. I have three grown children, and even though they aren't at home anymore, I still spend time with them whenever I can. We are a very close family. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 43 years and we are happy happy happy, to this day.

Favorite Music

Music, music,music I mostly listen to Bluegrass, Old Timey, old and new gospel, Swing, Country Swing, and Celtic. But I love to dance to old rock and roll and country. I love going to hear live groups. My husband is a musician and is in a Bluegrass band so we go to Bluegrass Festivals every summer. I also enjoy watching Austin City limits on Saturday night if we are home at 10PM.

Favorite Movies

I love to go to the movies and also watch a lot on Amazon Prime and Netflx in the winter. I like English drama and comedies. I like mysteries and detective movies.too. Not crime shows though. Recently watched Queen of Oowego, and Life of a King. Both about youth Chess players. I take my grandsons to the movies a lot too. I love going to movies on $5. Tuesdays!!

Message to swappers

Let me know by message if you have not received my swap. I will make it right!! I would hate to get a low rating for something that didn't show up. I am faithful at sending. I love reading the notes in my swaps. I learn so much about people. So if you send me something I will definitely read it. Also, sometimes I get mail that I can't read the handwriting. That is frustrating. Thanks for being careful and taking your time.

Things I love to collect

Vintage fabric prints, especially from the 50's and 60"s. brightly colored cotton blend prints and wool fabric scraps. Note and greeting cards: vintage, old fashioned, handmade, artsy or photography cards. Postcards: vintage, black and white, art themed, countries,, animals, birds, musicians, quotes. Pretty or interesting stamps on my mail. I am collecting them for a project I found on pinterest. Blue glass bottles, especially little ones, chicken themed items, handmade potholders, little stuffies, especially sheep and owls. I love receiving other peoples creations. No washi tape...I have plenty from previous swappers.
