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 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 33 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, 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 ;^( also used interesting postal stamps.

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, Oregon, 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.

Update on 6/15/21: I have been away from Swap-Bot for the first part of 2021. No explanations....just needed a break for a while.

Comment: I will have to check out your Instagram. I also have a goal this year of sewing from my stash. I pulled a few projects out of my totes, but haven't started them yet. Do you remember what you used for the iridescent "frosting" on your card? Loved that! And also the rivers of glitter syrup - good humor! Thanks!
Response: The iridescent paint is called Scribbles in a little one ounce squeeze bottle. it is called iridescent silver. I purchased it years ago on sale for 37 cents!

Comment: Thank you for the glam taco chunk! My ma is a quilter, but sticks to traditional patterns. She just got back from a week long quilting retreat she attends twice a year, and meets with a quilting group weekly. I sew okay but prefer paper.
