I'm 60+, single. 2 children, daughter 47 son 42, 5 grandchildren. Avid quilter, paper crafts, altered books and card maker. Also enjoy cross stitch and jewelery making. Love to travel.I live in the Great State of Alabama, although I was born in Calif..

Favorite Music

Country Western, Classical and some Gospel.

Favorite Books

Mysteries. Any author from Conan Doyle to Poe, from Christie to Cornwall. Some Historical fiction to stories about Quilts and Quilting. I love to research areas that are of great interest to me.

Favorite Movies

Black and White mysteries to romance, from the 30's and 40's. Modern day T V series' on DVD fill in the hours on a rainy day.

Favorite Television

Favorite Crafts

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.

No No's

Any thing with a scent. No caffeine, chocolate or milk products. Don't have time for allergic reactions !!!

Favorite Color

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.
