Favorite Crafts

I have recently started to enjoy quilting. I am far from an expert but enjoy giving it a try.

I enjoy cross stitch even though I have to bring out my reading glasses these days.

Sewing is also a passion. I made clothes for my kids when they were young but now find myself enjoying craft sewing.

I am probably addicted to pinterest and have lots of things pinned that I hope to get to "one of these days"

I love to try different crafts to see if I enjoy them.

About Me

I am married 33 years to my wonderful husband. I am Catholic and love to volunteer at our church. We have two grown children - a girl and a boy. I have four grandchildren - 3 girls and a boy.

I've been a stay at home mom since our son was 6 months old - that was approximately 22 years ago.


love chocolate

Not so much about coffee - I don't drink coffee

Love note cards to send out little thank you notes, etc.

Favorite colors are auqa - turquoise, pink, blue, red

Tend to like more bold looks than pastels.

Love polka dots or chevrons.

Favorite holiday - Christmas

Love crosses of any kind - either to hang or on fabric, cards, etc.

Love snowmen

Love to cook/bake. I'm having a hard time downsizing my recipes since its just my husband and me at home now. But that just makes for left-overs! :)

Love inspirational things and phrases

Fabric is great!! Especially like fat quarters.

Sewing essentials - cute pins for quilting, thread any color, quilting supplies, etc

Cross stitch essentials - thread, bobbins to wind thread, charts, etc

Favorite Television

usually watch sitcoms - easier than getting hooked into having to watch something every week.

LOVE amazing race

Usually will watch Bachelor, Bachelorette, and Big Brother

Favorite Music

Can't go wrong with the 70's or 80's - I know that shows my age!


Favorite holiday: I love Christmas - its my favorite holiday. I collect Nativity sets of all kinds. I decorate our house in traditional red and green for Christmas.

Love snowmen and santas.

Also I love crosses of any kind

Love inspirational things and phrases.

EmilyT rated for Time for some Holiday HoHo FABRIC! on Dec 18, 2015
Comment: Thank you, pretty fabric! The trees are elegant and the snowman/gingerbread is fun! I will put the to use either as a border on throw pillows and/or as part of a table runner. The fantastic vintage-look Santa, I will applique him onto the Christmas quilt I just started to make. He is fantastic! It is a quilt with star blocks- my first star block attempt. I am making either 1 or 2 throw pillow cases to match, as well. Merry Christmas!
