About Me

Please make sure you put the name of the swap on your mail. I usually have several swaps going on and I need to be able to find you to rate you. Thanks!

I am a retired Baby Boomer. Online, I belong to Goodreads, Postcrossing a few quilting forums and lots of groups here on Swap-Bot. My husband and I have been happily married for 40 years.We have two grown sons whom we see often.

Teal is my favorite color. Batiks are my favorite fabric.

We enjoy traveling whenever we can. Our house has a lot of fishy decor because my husband loves to fish for trout. We are a pet free, smoke free household. We do and have loved pets, but not these days.

Favorite Crafts

Quilting is my main passion. I also love knitting. I enjoy making quilts for family and local charities. fabric Photography is another long time passion. I enjoy making postcards with my photos.

Favorite Books

I belong to a book group and we read general fiction.. Authors I love are Maeve Binchy, Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben. Robert Crais, Linwood Barkley, Barbara Kingsolver, Jennifer Chiaverini and Louise Penny. I belong to Goodreads online so if you also belong, please friend me there. .

Favorite Television

We are watching morning talk shows, NCIS, CSI, Scorpion, Mysteries of Laura, Elementary, Person of Interest, House Hunters, Jeopardy and Bones. I record quilting and knitting shows for later watching. Love my DVR!

Favorite Movies

Romantic comedies are at the top of the list but I find mysteries intriguing. I go to the movies in the theater a few times a month. My all time favorite movies are 50 First Dates. When Harry Met Sally, Gravity and The Help.

Otherwise, any postcard is welcome. -MAP cards of other countries -TREES - water scenes - fish (for hubby) - local landmarks or scenery - National Parks - UNESCO World Heritage sites - animals - flowers

Comment: Thank you for another nice PC. And no we don't have bears in Australia. Tourist sometimes refer to the Koala as a bear, but it isn't.

Comment: Thanks for the card. Oh, yes, we love both cats and dogs. Up until about a year ago we had a Tortie named Cookie who ruled this house. When she passed at the ripe old age of 16 the kids were devastated. They had known her all their lives. So I decided no more pets. Well, that didn't last very long. My wife brought home an old Yorkie last fall that someone gave her and the oldest nephew brought home a yellow Lab pup a few weeks ago so now we have two dogs but no cats. We also have Mr. T a turtle that we rescued from the street by the pond. People keep telling us that we should return him to the pond but the kids won't hear of it.

Judy, it's been fun to swap with you in the past in quilting swaps. I fully understand your love of batiks, some are among those lovelies it's hard to cut up. Although we read somewhat different books, I think there's something in the brain that makes quilting and reading compatible, i don't know what it is. If you have an inkling I'd love to know it. I hope you're enjoying the OFAP group; this is half the Profile swap, a card will be in the mail later today.

jukejan on Mar 29, 2015:

Profile Perusal Post & PC swap from OFAP. Hi Judee, Although I am not a quilter, I love batik fabrics too and created a lovely scarf with blanket stitch edging for myself. Your quilts must really be lovely with that choice of fabric. I see that you enjoy postcards of states and it sounds like a terrific collection. It is always fun to read and see what other OFAPS are up to. I will be mailing out the pc today. Enjoy, jan
