About Me

Native Texan. Married with a Dogs Lucy and JoJo. I am a massage therapist.

I love to garden, drink coffee, scrapbook, crochet, upcycle, sew, collect (sewing patterns, buttons, fabric, paper, ribbon, ... ). I can't get enough vintage patterns, fabric, ephemera, stuff...I also enjoy "junking" by way of thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, antique stores, estate auctions, ebay...

FABRIC: I love geometric prints and vintage florals (retro 50s and 60s, not prairie or Laura Ashley like).

SEWING PATTERNS: I would love to receive anything from the 1970s or older. All Clothing, aprons, purses. In Texas, sundress patterns are put to good use! I don't sew doll clothes, so don't send me those (But oddly enough I do have doll clothes patterns, so if you would like to do a private swap for them, let me know).

Other hobbies: We camp and hike when we can. I enjoy the outdoors and traveling the off-beaten paths. I am not religious, but I am spiritual.

Favorite Color: Green, but love all colors.

Favorite Music

Natalie Merchant, REM, Gipsy Kings, All old country. World Music, I love the CDs produced by the Putamayo label.

Favorite Books

All time favorite: Dances with Wolves Recently read "Glass Castle", LOVED it.

Favorite Television

Modern Family, Alias, Arrested Development, The Office, Project Runway, Breaking Bad, Downtown Abby, Suits, Justified, Survivor, and "Reality" TV that I shouldn't admit to...

Favorite Crafts

Scrapbooking Sewing Crochet
