About Me

Just to let you know that I am taking time out from swapping as life is just to busy at the moment, hence why I have left the groups i am part of (not great getting sms messages in the middle of the night courtesy of my new blackberry). I may be back but am not sure when.

Hi, I'm a mum of two, married to a lovely fireman and staying in bonnie scotland. I love all things handmade (just because someone has taken the time to do them). I love the seasons and the seaside(especially in winter). I collect driftwood, pebbles and shells and always have a stripey sock with me to hold my finds. I have a passion for earthenware pottery, particulary jugs althougth every piece I have is useable not just for show. I'm mad about beach-huts and bunting and I love buttons as well. I would love a blue and white camper van but my children would be disgraced. I can spend hours in a fabric or wool shop and adore haberdashery as well. Id like to think my style is shabby chic, well worn and comfy.

Favorite Music

I love traditional and folk music (both scottish and irish). U2, James Blunt, Meatloaf , Christy Moore, Coldplay,The Drifters to name a few. I don't care for jazz or brass band.

Favorite Books

Anything by Jane Austin, All Arts and Crafts books, Little Women, The Friday Night Knitting Club, Anything by Patricia Scanlan, Cecilia Ahern or other light fiction.

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, sewing, cross stitch, just learning felting, making fabric pictures, in fact anything fabric related. Making things in general. I also love buttons and clay.

Favourite Colour

I love washed out/bleached colours. The colours of the sea and the sky and pebbles on the beach. Greens and mulberry and muted reds. Sunny colours as well, but not neon. I love slate (the colour and texture). Faded florals, particularly small print or anything that could qualify as shabby chic.

Likes

Chocolate, baking, arts and crafts with my children, walking on the beach( especially in winter), renovating my house and garden. Trips to Ireland where lots of my family live. Being cosy with a book to hand and a big mug of piping hot tea. Knitting, sewing. Fabric. Ribbons and trims, particularly lace and vevet.

Dislikes

Coffee, liquorice, alcohol. Violent films. Jazz music. Movie merchandise(disney etc).Postcards of "cute" animals.

Wish List

Fabric or fabric scraps(for small patchwork projects). Sea tumbled glass. Earthenware pottery. Fabric landscapes. Anything with stained glass. Baskets (any sort). Unusual pebbles(especially lovehearts). Anything sea related, beach huts, boats, seagulls. Campervans( material/cards/postcards). Handmade soap, candles. Tote/book bags. Necklaces (wooden/glass/silver - greens and blues(all shades).Bright postcards(not tourist ones). Chickens/Cows (postcards/prints/fabric etc). Ribbons, particularly velvet or wired, but any really, bright buttons, notebooks or journals.

Comment: Thankyou, Jacqui, it arrived today (delayed by volcanic ash, I believe). The yarn is beautiful. The wool tops is great and will be well used. The notebook is sweet and will definitely be used for something sheepy, the little pouch will come in handy for some buttons I have, and I love the magnetic tape measure. Thankyou also for the puppets for the girls. They will love doing those. Altogether, another great package from you!
Response: Glad you liked the package, but am really sorry it took so long. Normally parcels to England are there in 1 or 2 days max. Thanks for the heart, have a lovely day - jacqui x

Comment: Thank you the fabric is awesomeness in itself. I love the color & the "elemental" feel to it.
Response: So glad it arrived. Sorry about the ribbon yardage, I thought it was a 3yrd reel I had enclosed but had a few swaps on the go at the time and maybe got them mixed up.

Comment: What an adorable sheep! I love his feet. And his mouthful of yummy stuff. Thankyou also for the lovely FQ, the prim heart, the stars and the lovely pc! Fantastic package!
Response: Glad it arrived quite quickly. I forgot that we had the Sept weekend bank holiday here in Scotland. I am so pleased you liked the sheep. My son wanted to keep it, so I have another on the go. I forgot to mention that there is a stress ball inside the body, so if you want to get out your frustrations just squeeze it. The body was made of a felted lambswool jumper and the the knitted bits were pure wool. I love it when people like their packages. Have a lovely evening - jacqui x
