Quilting: I've done several baby quilts and just recently made a quilt for a cousin who was going off to college - with the help of another cousin - and made a quilt for myself that just needs to be quilted. I'm really loving scrap quilts at the moment. There are 3 more quilts in my head, already planned out, and I've been collecting blues, greens, and yellows for a couple of them, one of which is a Grandmother's Flower Garden that I'm hand-paper-piecing.
Beading/Jewelry-making: I especially enjoy making stuff with glass beads and hemp or natural fibers.
Felties/Stuffies/Plushies: I had so much fun making a bunch of little felt ornaments for people last Christmas that it made me want to make more to with others - which is one reason I joined swap-bot!.
Swing & Big Band, Bollywood, Soundtracks, Celtic, Christian, Classical, etc.
Georgette Heyer, Alexander McCall Smith, Louis L'Amour, Rex Stout, E. Nesbit, and P.G. Wodehouse, plus many more.
British Mysteries/Cozies, Historical Fiction, Biographies, Quilting, and Crafts.
Cereal boxes if I'm desperate!
Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Doctor Who, Hawaii Five-0 (re-boot), Leverage, NCIS: LA, Psych, Warehouse 13, and White Collar.
My name is Heather (my profile photo is of some snowy heather, which is probably too small to make out!), and I live in the Pacific Northwest, which I absolutely love. I love God, my country, my family, and my friends. I live at home with my family and have several part-time jobs: I work in a tea room, do child care for two adorable little boys, give piano lessons, and work in our family's home business. I like going on walks and hikes and really enjoy theatre, especially Shakespeare. We have an excellent group that does free Shakespeare in the Parks in the summer, and I love going to as many as possible!
I also love: books (generally speaking, I really like anything book-related), words, art (in just about any form, and many different styles e.g., paintings, drawings, quilts, posters, I'm a sucker for good packaging, photography, scrapbooking, nature, jewelry, a beautifully-bound and/or illustrated book, etc.); music (I play piano); crafting, cooking, tea (the drink and the meal - I love to have tea with friends); and the British Isles (anything to do with England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland is probably something I love - for example, rugby, fish and chips, plaids, shamrocks, Union Jacks, Willow Ware, Celtic knotwork, Gaelic, Welsh, etc.).
I love a good laugh, most things vintage, and I still love stickers. I also love working with kids in various capacities; giving piano lessons, doing child care, and volunteering at my church's AWANA program and teaching Children's Church. I love almost every color there is, as long as it is tastefully presented, but my favorites are greens, blues, reds, and browns. And last, but not least, of course, I love chocolate. Of any kind. Period/Full stop.
