JUNE 29: My surgery is scheduled for JULY 9. (about time). Hopefully, I'll be home about 5 days later. I'm looking forward to feeling better and being able to get back to making ATC's. Thanks for hanging in there with me......
JUNE 11: I finally had my oral surgery done. (May 22) Lots of pain!! Anyway, once I recovered (took over a week), I was notified by the hospital and now I'm waiting to get another surgery date. This whole mess has worn me down. I'm missing doing ATC's, but I'm just too tired these days to do most anything, but I manage. I'm sorry to not have gotten 2 swaps done, but I work on them as I can. More when I know.
APRIL 27: My heart surgery has been put on hold until my cardiologists and my oral surgeon can give the OK to have 4 teeth pulled. I'm in pain and it's hard for me to eat or drink. I wish they would make up their minds. I'm angry, sad and anything else in between . Sorry for the delay, but I hope to be back as soon as possible.
TO ALL MY PARTNERS NOW AND IN THE FUTURE. I NEED TO TAKE SOME TIME OFF FROM SWAPPING. I'M HAVING TO HAVE HEART VALVE REPLACEMENT SOON. I'VE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY HEART RATE FOR MONTHS. I GET VERY TIRED IF I DO TOO MUCH MOVING AROUND. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME. I'LL BE BACK AS SOON AS I CAN. ANY SWAPS DUE ARE BEING WORKED ON NOW, SLOW BUT STEADY. THANKS.

Quilting comes first. From there, I expanded to Counted Cross Stitch, Altered Books, making of my own Christmas cards, ATC's, jewelry making. I also like to paint unfinished birdhouses and picture frames. Some are called "Altered Art". Just started to do collage on artists canvas.
I love to cook and have a rather large collection of Cook Books. I love to find books printed by Church Groups. They offer the best in various areas of the country. I also just started to collect Paint By Number paintings. They are pure and rather nice. I also have a large collection of Tea Pots and vintage hankies. Santa's and Jim Shore figurines fill my bookcases.
Any thing with a scent. No caffeine, chocolate or milk products. Don't have time for allergic reactions !!!
I tend to lean towards blues, yellows and creams. I like to use black and white in my quilts and I also use bright, wild colors in my quilts. Tans, yellows, oranges, and whites round out the list.
