I am married with 1 daughter and 1 grand daughter, 4 fur kids..( 2 fat cats ,1 skinny yarn loving cat and one ornery cat ) I retired in 2016 and now just a full time care giver for my hubby. I love swapping but sometimes taking care of my hubby gets in way of my rating,ect. A gentle reminder please when I am late on rating.
With hubby needing more attention, I am limiting how many swaps I do so I can get them out on time. I am open to private swaps.If we talked about one but I didn't get back to you, recontact me. If hubby is being more challenging, I go into survival mode and forget my fun stuff.
I'm a Christian. I like sewing with fabric creating quilts out of other people's left overs. Most of my quilts go out to local needs. I been in Girl Scouts since 1993. I worked with 2 different troops til they graduated and am now a helper for the Cadette troop where my granddaughter is a member.No more paperwork! Yah!!! I am born and raised in South Dakota growing up on a farm.I still live in SD. I have 5 sisters and 1 brother with 11 nieces and nephews and 3 great nephews.
I like the music from the 70's, ethic music and christian .
When I watch TV, it is CSI type shows. Trying to figure out how they do the lab work interest me. Lately, Alaska, the last frontier. It reminds me of my childhood in many ways.
I love work with fabric..creating something of beauty and usefulness from scraps. Most of my quilts go to local needs.
When not sewing, I crochet baby sweaters for preemies to use going home and afghans for future gifts. I also knit loom hats for kids in need.
I like to do crazy quilting with beads, lace & ribbons ect but that is in the summer. The cold here makes my hands hurt too much then.
I love using cotton yarn to make clothes and afghans for myself and family members who can't wear synthetic threads. The leftovers become wash cloths. Any color will work. This winter with being stocked up with rummage sale yarn..I plan to make mutli colored baby sized blankets for foster care kids for them to keep. I took up painting after becoming an empty nester. Most of my paintings are from vacation pictures from National Parks near South Dakota. I'm use film and digital . Love what I can do with a camera .
I love beads, buttons, yarn,ribbons and fabric.
COLLECTIONS: magnets, key chains, recycled bags from national parks
postcards: local color, ethic, maps, paintings, national parks, (love what you send as long as it is not x rated) As traveling gets harder for my husband, armchair travel by postcards is the way I fill my wondering spirit. At times now during respite time..I take bus tours now. I would love to get small coins and canceled stamps from international trades. They would be used for my granddaughter's scout troop.
In fabric swaps...I lean towards brights but can use all colors in my sewing
I am allergic to all perfumes, peanut butter, coffee and artificial sweeteners. Also can't eat wheat products now. My allergies...the gift that keeps on giving. :( So please do not send me any of these. Please no Santa Claus's
