Favorite Crafts

I enjoy hand embroidery and making quilts...piecing and applique. Have participated in lots of quilt block swaps, etc. I love collecting beautiful cotton fabrics and quilt patterns (especially modern designs)....to me there is nothing like visiting quilt shops in the area...especially with my quilting friends!

Obviously, I really like handmade items...I appreciate the time, effort, and creativity it takes to make something special....but I appreciate store bought items, too!! Anytime anyone takes the time to look for just that special something for me is very much appreciated.

I enjoy sending cards and letters as much as I enjoy receiving them. I'm always looking for cute stickers and stamps to dress up envelopes..!

Favorite Movies

Anything romantic...Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Somewhere in time...etc.......but I also like action and sci-fi movies!!

Favorite Television

Anything History Channel.....General Hospital, Big Bang Theory, 60 Minutes, Blacklist.

Favorite Books

Inspirational, Christian...

Fiction, romance, biographies, anything history, etc.....

Favorite things to do

I love traveling although I don't get to do it as much as I would like (you know, work gets in the way)!! Other things I love to do.....nosing through new little shops (especially antique ones)....write letters to friends.....read.....do hand embroidery.....trying out new restaurants....photography.....walking in old cemeteries (I know, sounds morbid, but I love studying family history and cemeteries are all about history and interesting information) playing the piano....take long walks....drink coffee out of china cups (I collect them)... go on vacation with friends and family.....attend quilt workshops and exhibitions with friends. Most of all I love to spend time with my family!!

About Me

North Carolina has been my home all of my life...yes, I'm a true southern belle born and bred! HA! As I said, I love traveling but NC will always be my home...at least I hope so!! I married a wonderful man 29 years ago and we've been blessed with two fantastic children.

Things I like

Things I like..... pretty china cups and saucers, interesting postcards, rubber stamps, gel pens or extra fine sharpies, simple recipes, kitchen gadgets, anything associated with the fall season, any colors....love them all....journals, good quality 100% cotton quilting fabrics, interesting little scissors, DMC floss, ribbons, small buttons, notecards.... as for candies...can't eat any for now....on a diet ;^(

I don't make ATCs and matchboxes, but I'd love to receive some in swaps. Remember, handmade is GOOD!

Oh, yes...anything having to do with quilts and sewing!!

Favorite Music

60's, 70's, and 80's type music....especially Motown, R & B, some classical, beach music (I'm talking the Embers, Chairman of the Board...Myrtle Beach- type beach music)....I guess I like everything except country and heavy metal!!

Postcards

I have really gotten into sending and receiving postcards lately!! I love almost any kind, but especially postcards from your area, art cards, homemade cards, black & white cards. I also like map cards from all areas. Presently I have Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Maryland, North Carolina, Colorado, California, Louisiana, Delaware, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Nevada, Georgia, Tennessee, WV, Texas, SD, NM, Ohio, Virginia, Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey, Minnesota, South Carolina, Montana, Washington, Washington, DC, and Vermont. Would love to add to the list!! Please always write something interesting about the postcard or yourself on the back. I like them naked, and hand cancelled (but I know this can't always be done). Also, please write the date on the card!! ;^)

Ratings

Please do rate me! I try and rate all of my swaps the same day I receive if at all possible.

Leave me a comment if you happen to stop by for a "visit"!!!

Comment: Hi there, I finally figured out who sent me something--it got chewed up by the mail machines, so I only could see my name and the Mr. Rogers stamp. :( 7/21/18 Thanks for the resend :)
Response: This makes me so sad!! I bought two of those cards while visiting my daughter in another part of the state. I'm going to resend because I think it reflected what Mr. Rogers stood for. Be on the lookout for it in your mailbox!!
