About Me

I am a Christian wife and mother to a daughter age 32 & son age 29 along with his lovely wife. I am a new grandma to Zachary.

I love to crochet, quilt, create zentangle or fabric postcards, plastic canvas or felt christmas ornaments.

I have always want to learn to tat & have been studying online how to needle tat. I've found some tatting videos & have them posted on my pinterest account. So far I have learned the flower pendant & have been making earrings as Christmas presents for my 2 sisters, nieces & daughters. I still want to learn how to use a shuttle, but needle tatting is easier to start learning. If you tat, any helpful needle patterns will be nice.

My favorite colors are blue, green, grape purple, dark reds-jewel tone colors. Although I was born in August & my birthstone is peridot, I love the blue topaz of December. I love the blue/green combination.

I love to crochet & am looking for neat patterns to make for swaps. I love working with cotton yarns & threads. I have found some nice free patterns & have listed them on my pinterest account.

I have a quaker parrot& my daughter has a sun conure. I enjoy looking for bird print fabrics or bird embroidery/appligue patterns online

My favorite swaps are things that I can handmake to share. I mail things directly at the postoffice & try to send out as soon as the swap is assigned. I rate as soon as the mail arrives.

Favorite Music

Christian worship,country, instrumental music by Jesse Cook

Favorite Television

mentalist, CSI, Castle, but mostly as background as I sew or crochet

Comment: Julie - Nicely done tangles! Your line work is great; you should try adding shading. I worked in a quilt shop once, too. Not good - like putting an alcoholic to work as a bartender. LOL. Thanks for joining the swap! (P.S. I was in western NC in August. What a beautiful state.)
