7/15/16 I am back on SwapBot after leaving for a while. When I left, I left a lot of ones. I'm in the process of making amends for these, but in some cases, it isn't possible, as two of the recipients are not on Swap Bot currently. I am doing everything I can to remedy those ones.
2/10/14 Hi world. Just a few things to update you with. I just started a new job where I am working nights. This means that I can sometimes not get back to messages as quickly as I would like. If you feel you need to get in touch with me as quickly as possible, please email me directly. That will get to me so much faster, as I do check my email regularly throughout the day (and night) on my phone, but Swapbot and my phone don't really like each other.
Second, I have been having some trouble with my packages getting to people. I think the great mail troll is eating them. Please let me know if you have not received your package/letter/etc, and I will get another out to you. I do make it a point to mail everything, but apparently there is a bottomless pit in the drop box I use. I am going to try a few others over the next little while to see if I can find one that works better. Thanks so much!
I like quilting. It's pretty awesome. I also read, sew, cook, etc. I teach at a local high school and community college.
FooFaRaw, for those who haven't seen the tv show Firefly, is how one of the characters describes pretty things. I like making pretty things.
I have a puppy (well, a three year old, 65 lb. puppy.) He hates that I craft. He mopes with his head in my lap when I'm sewing. No matter the weather, he thinks we should be at the dog park.
Just so you have a heads up, I am open to both cottons and flannels. As for colors, I am open to anything. I love doing really random colors and prints. Just thought I would let you all know!
As for what to send, I'm working a ton of quilts. I'm really open for anything.
I like dogs, owls, batiks, tribal prints, and things with strong contrast. I like all manner of Halloween fabric, as well as Christmas fabric, though I am not as fond of Santa fabric. I do more Blues and snowmen than Santa stuff.
Favorite colors are blues, greens, teals, reds, and some purples. Orange is also growing on me.
I will use both cotton and polyester thread. I go through quite a bit as I haveany projects going on, so black and white are both really good.
I really like quilting, specifically with 2.5" squares and batiks. I mean, I like a quilt that comes together quickly as well, but there something wonderful about all of those different pieces making something more than you really expected.
I've also been getting into appliquÃ© quilting, so fusible would be welcome as well as natural patterns, especially if it is of a cool natural feature in your area.
I'm also getting onto embroidery as well. I don't do much redwork, but am starting to do redwork patterns in blue.
I also crochet. Can't knit to save my life. Right now I'm more on a quilting kick than a crochet kick.
Overall, I really like things that I can make for other people.
With cooking, I like things that come together quickly. Any recipes or cookbooks that fit this are always welcome.
Let's see. Firefly, of course, as mentioned in the about me. I also like Bones, Warehouse 13, Law and Order: SVU, Numb3rs, Castle.
Anything from a smoker's house. I'm allergic to the smoke. If it has been washed really well, then maybe.
I would rather bright, strong colors. I will accept pastels and such, but I prefer really bright patterns, color schemes etc. I'm open to the rainbow, as long as you can see what color it is :-) I would prefer fewer pinks, but if that is all you have to swap, I'll survive. I'll just break it up throughout my quilts.
I'm not a strong fan of cats, or cutsy patterns. I did read somewhere that if it's not cute, you just haven't cut it small enough. That is true most of the time, but I would prefer not to cut fabrics down so small that I can't identify it later. Non sweet cats are okay, I just have gotten a ton of cats that are all soft and sweet and catlike.
Cherry cordials, super dark chocolate, and chamomile tea aren't really top of my list.
I eat almost anything. :-) But I like Milk Chocolate over Dark, and black and green teas over herbals.
I like meat, but I end up eating veggie because it's cheaper.
