About Me

I almost always send my swaps out on the day the partners are assigned, unless it is a weekend/holiday or we are snowed in. If you don't receive something from me, please let me know.

I always rate the day a swap is received unless there is an internet or power outage. If you haven't received a rating from me, I have not received your swap.

I am a retired postal worker and I live in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate NY. I am married and have 2 grown children.

Favorite Crafts

I crochet, knit, quilt and do counted cross stitch. I also like to do mosaics. Most of what I knit and crochet is donated to various charieties including Warm Up America, Project Linus, Hats4theHomeless, Knots of Love, the Pink Slipper Project, SoapSacks, Operation Gratitude and Sgt. P's Lapghans for Veterans.

Favorite Books

I am an avid reader. My favorite books are historical novels set in England from the year 1066 through the Tudor monarchy, especially books by Philippa Gregory, Elizabeth Chadwick, Alison Weir and Sharon Kay Penman. I also like police procedurals, Stephen King books and sci-fi stuff, especially about time travel. My number one favorite book is Time and Again by Jack Finney. I reread it every few years.

Favorite Television

I watch Chicago Med and Fire, Law & Order SVU,Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor, The Walking Dead, The Crown, Wentworth, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and I just enjoyed The Queen's Gambit. All time favorite sitcom is Wings and all time favorite crime show is the original Law & Order.

Favorite Movies

Star Wars and Frequency are 2 of my all time favorites. I also like post apocalyptic stuff like Snowpiercer and 12 Monkeys.

Favorite Music

I love The Beatles and 80s music, especially Def Leppard.

odds & ends

I like coffee but don't like tea. My favorite color is purple. I don't have any pets but am feeding a feral cat. I like skywatching for meteors, comets and planetary events and am anxiously waiting for the next total solar eclipse whose path of totality will be within 10 miles of my house. I love National Parks, particularly those in the southwest. I am a baseball fan and also a fan of the Olympic sport of curling. I love road trips and trips on Amtrak. I like to garden and watch birds.

weird things I've experienced

I have had a moose cross the road in front of me ... twice.

I met Bobby Vinton when he walked into the orthodontist's office that I was working at instead of the chiropractor's office next door. Both the orthodontist and the chiropractor had the same last name.

I once walked into my kitchen and saw an ermine poking its head out from behind the microwave.

I rode a hydrofoil between Oahu and Kauai.

I was in the Outer Banks when Hurricane Irene hit and had to evacuate.

I got hit by a baseball at a Montreal Expo's game.

Janet, oh my goodness! You are so kind and thoughtful to send a beautiful RAK from Raks Only USA for my birthday! Your handmade crocheted doilies are so GORGEOUS! I am so thrilled and cannot wait to use these at Christmastime! Probably as part of decorating on my dining room table when I put out my fancy table cloth. I may have to before Christmas though! They are too pretty not to put out and enjoy. lol

mejulia on May 21, 2021:

Thank you for the great RAK of the Christmas Washi, I love it and plan to use it with my Christmas cards.

JuneRosebud on May 20, 2021:

Janet, I love the May RAK of the khaki colored dishcloth. You do such wonderful work=)

Kirkdebb on May 19, 2021:

Thank you for the stickers and washi tape RAKS. I'm looking forward to using them next fall. Also, thank you for another wonderful dishcloth. What brand of cotton yarn did you use? I love the look of it!
