About Me

I work full time as an engineer and have two wonderful energetic boys. We have 2 llamas, 8 shetland sheep, 2 Great Pyrenees and Harry the cat (the fav. animal of course). My husband is a great support for me as a stay-at-home dad. Since I am freed from the 90% of the cleaning, I spend my free time weaving, spinning, sewing and knitting/crocheting. I also am an avid runner and outfield ball player/catcher for the boys..

Fiber

I am a natural fiber snob. I don't like acrylics! I love wools, llama/alpaca, silks, cottons and other natural fibers.

Favorite Colors

I love an array of colors which tend towards what I call jewel tones. Deep Emerald or jade greens, rich ruby or garnet reds, billiant saphire blues, midnight blues (yep..I deviated from my theme, but hey how otherwise could I explain that color?) and golds. But No purples! I usually blend these colors with naturals - whites, browns or blacks.

As far as dislikes, pure pastels or colors with greater than 10% pastel if the color is variegated!

Fav Foods

All types of chocolate have a tendency to disappear when I am around. However, if someone really pushed me on what I perfer I will admit to rich dark european chocolate.

I also enjoy breads - croissants, sour dough, bagels, baguettes all with gourmet cheese or just plain butter. (I know, I know there isn't really any good way to send these in the mail.)

Any lastly, fresh coffee beans - a good espresso, breakfast blend or south american.

Profile Surprise

List of items.... -Natural Fiber -Smaller glass or semi-precious beads -Natural Yarns, Sock Yarn -Silk or wool recycled fabric (Goodwill Bins are a great place to go scavenging!) for making quilts -Handmade items (spindles, knitting needles, small sized jewelry, hand drawings/inks/paintings, clay buttons/magnets, stamps????) - Fabric Ink Dyes, stencils, stamps (I like flowers, leaves, trees, people, no cartoons) - Sewing Magazines

Dislikes

Acrylic yarn - Please DO NOT send me items made of acrylic yarn. Perfumes! - Many perfumes give me a headache and/or give me a sneezing attach.

Hi. I'd like to invite you to join my Sheep Swap for spinners and felters, knitters and crocheters.

What a sweet angel!!!! I got your absolutely beautiful buttons yesterday. I loved the presentation and especially having a little piece of Washington State--other than my DD who was born there. My hubby even admitted that they were cool! :)
