About Me

Updated 3/1/2021

Favorite Crafts

I love nerdy crafts, sewing, hand/machine embroidery, quilting, making bags/purses, watercolors and ATCs. I've been taking art classes at the community college and learning more about drawing and color.

I started sewing when I was a teenager and made my own clothes - dresses and tops mostly. I stick to smaller projects now for the most part, like small quilts, dolls and purses.

Dotee dolls are super fun, and I always look for new ideas to make them unique. I also love making stuffed dolls and animals, and mixed media art.

Photography is something I started in 2018. I have a Nikon DSLR and I love capturing subtle expressions and great moments.

Favorite Quotes

The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me. - Oscar Wilde, "De Profundis"

You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them. - Ray Bradbury

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. - Albert Camus

The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive. - John Green, Looking for Alaska

Invictus
By William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Postcards

I much prefer postcards sent "naked" and I love pretty much all kinds of postcards except religious ones. Don't worry about offending me, either! I love risque, dark, creepy, and strange cards! Touristy cards are fine, too. There aren't many postcards I don't like :)

Comment: Thank you for the cheerful, fun patches! I love the bright colors and bold designs. I also am making "E" for Elf-- such a delightful movie. We just watched Free Willy about a year or so ago for the first time since I was a kid--such happy nostalgia! ♥ Thanks for telling me about the fabric bond, I've never heard of it before and now I want to try it. Thanks also for the extra fabric samples. I appreciate all the care you put into this swap for me.

Comment: This is the cutest mug rug ever! I have received 2 mug rugs in the time I have been swapping that are my favorites of all and this is one of them. I got one years ago that had The Wizard of Oz fabric and a beaded red glass slipper on it (hint my name is Dorothy) that I hang as decoration and don't use as a mug rug. This one will probably go right beside it. I used to collect frogs....married one but after 49 years of kissing him --- still no prince. Thank you Tere....great job!
Response: Omygosh I am laughing about your frog/prince comment! I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you for the lovely comments.

Comment: I love the bag you made me! It was adorable! It never crossed my mind to use a fuzzy fabric for the outside of the bag. It makes the rabbit seem so soft and cuddly. I also love how you used a coordinating fabric for the inside of the bag. Thank you so much for the thoughtful addition of the fat quarters inside the bag. I especially love the sunflower one! Wish I could give you a few extra hearts for this delightful surprise in my mailbox!!!

Comment: I love your blue ATC. I play with alcohol inks all the time. Love making my own backgrounds. Did you put a coating over it? I haven't done that with any of mine. I just got 34 colors from Amazon and I'm having fun playing with those.
Response: I'm glad you liked it. I put Mod Podge over it to hold all the little pieces in place and to give it a different texture. Thanks!

Grayson was so excited to see the cute kitty decorated envelope in the mail box. The kitty letter you made with the jokes was so adorable. Grayson laughed & smiled when I read it to him. Of course he loved the $1 bill too. Thank you so much!!
