enter title...

I am married with 1 daughter and 1 grand daughter, 4 fur kids..( 2 fat cats ,1 skinny yarn loving cat and one ornery cat ) I retired in 2016 and now just a full time care giver for my hubby. I love swapping but sometimes taking care of my hubby gets in way of my rating,ect. A gentle reminder please when I am late on rating.

With hubby needing more attention, I am limiting how many swaps I do so I can get them out on time. I am open to private swaps.If we talked about one but I didn't get back to you, recontact me. If hubby is being more challenging, I go into survival mode and forget my fun stuff.

I have almost got one bucket list done of being in all 50 states. Alaska and Hawaii is the last ones on the list. Virus allowing...Alaska in 2021.

About Me

I'm a Christian. I like sewing with fabric creating quilts out of other people's leftovers. Most of my quilts go out to local needs. I was a Girl Scout Troop leader from 1993 to 2019. I am born and raised in South Dakota growing up on a farm.I still live in SD. I have 5 sisters and 1 brother with 11 nieces and nephews and 3 great nephews.

Favorite Music

I like the music from the 70's, ethic music and christian .

Favorite Television

When I watch TV, it is CSI type shows. Trying to figure out how they do the lab work interest me. Lately, Alaska, the last frontier. It reminds me of my childhood in many ways. I also like to watch home improvement shows that center on upcycling things. Gives me ideas that are affordable to do. Plus gotta have property brothers too...nice eye candy.lol

Favorite Crafts

I love work with fabric..creating something of beauty and usefulness from scraps. The scraps make cool kid bags, pencil pouches for operation Christmas Child boxes, book covers and warm quilts for local needs. Sewing calms my soul.

I like to do crazy quilting with beads, lace & ribbons ect but that is in the summer. The cold here makes my hands hurt too much then.

I love using cotton yarn to make clothes and afghans for myself and family members who can't wear synthetic threads. The leftovers become wash cloths. Any color will work. I use yarn gotten in Good Will or rummages to make loom knit hats that are given away. The leftovers are put into colorful afghans that are also given away. I took up painting after becoming an empty nester. Now that I am retired ..painting time is harder due to hubby's needs increasing. My respite time is spend going on guided tours creating a ton of pictures for 'wish I could create' paintings. Last respite trip was Iceland, 2019. Loved the country...air is so clean there!! saw the Northern lights..:)

fun stuff

I love beads, buttons, yarn,ribbons and fabric.

COLLECTIONS: magnets....state ones...need Delaware key chains....need Delaware recycled bags from national parks

postcards: local color, ethic, maps, paintings, national parks, (love what you send as long as it is not x rated) As traveling gets harder for my husband, armchair travel by postcards is the way I fill my wandering spirit. At times now during respite time..I take bus tours now. I love to get small coins and canceled stamps from international trades.

In fabric swaps...I lean towards brights but can use all colors in my sewing

not wanted stuff

I am allergic to all perfumes, peanut butter, coffee and artificial sweeteners. Also can't eat wheat products now. My allergies...the gift that keeps on giving. :( So please do not send me any of these. Please no Santa Claus's

My favorite simple pizza dough recipe:
http://markbittman.com/dinner-with-bittman-pizza-dough/
I make calzone with this dough too, filled with spinach (10oz. frozen, thawed in a colander, and squeezed dry), ricotta, a little parmesan, and an egg. My husband likes a calzone with spaghetti sauce on the side; I like it plain.
