About Me

I am a retiree, I love to grow flowers, mainly in pots as the bending over to weed is getting too hard now. I love to sew, knit, read, cook, paint,crochet, and any other craft I see that I haven't tried yet. my favorite colors are sage green, apricot, pink burgundy, brown. I collect farm figures and small farm related items for display in my kitchen, I also have dragonfly objects in one bath and frogs in another. I love bracelets but never wear earrings. they make me feel funny. ha ha I have two old tom cats, They are lazy and fat. but lots of company.they help with the yarn when I am knitting.or crocheting. LOL I like to try new recipes, but cooking for one can be hard at times. I have 5 grown children, 12 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.. My dislikes include, plastic canvas, licorce, and anything with cherry flavoring.
I love to paint scenery, especially old barns and things of the past. I have been painting on slate from old roofs lately. Interesting pieces from old barns usually.
I also love to read, I love mysteries, romance, and just about anything else. I trade my books to other readers when I finish,I belong to a swapping group on the internet, and send out 3-4 books a week. I usually read 2-4 books a week. find new authors that way. I like to watch comedy movies and watch tv.I must admit I do like the reality shows , such as big brother, and survivor, also like to watch the cooking shows. I like to knit while watching tv, do lots of scarves, and baby blankets and such, keeps my fingers nimble. I like to sew, tote bags, baby embroidered quilts, and have been thinking of doing some dolls again, I like to have a variety of things for the craft shows during the holidays. I recently took some crochet classes, and love it.
II like to go to baseball games, Go Indians!!

Comment: Hello my dear sweet Marcia, You have instantly become my new best friend with this swap you sent me. You are so very thoughtful! I so loved your note and comments on Scotland❤️ It was so neat to read about your trip and the pictures were postcard beautiful. YES!!! I’ve heard, read, and seen thee Outlander books and series. Prior to Outlander Pride & Prejudice was my favorite love story. Now Jamie & Claire are. How awesome that your daughter met Diana. I enjoyed the history aspect of her story line as well. I still do a few swaps here and there but have found more enjoyment & personal friendship thru penpals. If you’re interested please pm me. As it is i’m Going to write you back anyways.:-) The embroidered sunflower tea towel was so very touching to me. Oh and the Scottish humor on the postcard was hilarious! I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ve made me smile and will continue do so at every glance at your swap. Thank you,🌻❤️

We DO have a lot in common! I love old barns, too, but I take photos of them instead of painting them. And I love reading and sewing, too. Very cool!

BennysMumma on Jan 15, 2013:

Hi Marcia! I got my gloves yesterday and they are BEAUTIFUL! The first pair was very pretty, but these are just outstanding! I love the new pattern you used. Thank you again for making these for me and I'm glad that you're feeling better. Continue to get better. <3 Naomi

Thank you for the letter I received yesterday for the Six Week Snail Mail Swap #4. I've received Week 1's Letter, and Week 2's card (Halloween), and Week 3's Letter and Recipe. Though I was thinking Week 4 was to send a postcard, I'm guessing this letter is for Week 4? Thank you for the letter!

KarlaKC on Oct 9, 2012:

Thank you for Week #1's letter for Six Week Snail Mail Swap #4 that arrived today. :)
