I am a fiber artist and have been for about four years now. I have been quilting for about 13 years.
My husband and I have a cute little Yorkie who keeps me company while I work in my studio. (I'm using her picture for my avatar.) We also have 4 little koi (Japanese goldfish) and about two dozen goldfish that refuse to stand still long enough for an accurate counting.
Please, do not send me anything with artificial sweeteners like aspartame!
I love Lord of the Rings, Hitchhikerâ€™s Guide to the Galaxy, Mercedes Lackey, and Anne McCaffrey, Juliet Marillier, Stephanie Meyer (I'm with the vampires), Marion Zimmer Bradley, Melanie Rawn. Basically anything fantasy. :-) I also like historical fiction.
TV: Gilmore Girls, 4400, Dead Zone, Battlestar Galactica, Grey's Anatomy (my mother sucked me in), House
Movies: Lord of the Rings, Serenity & Firefly, The Holiday, Boondock Saints
Music: Some of my favorite music groups/musicians are Lorena McKennit, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Nickel Creek, and Moxie Fruvous.
I quilt mostly (art quilts), but I knit a lot, too, and I also spin yarn on a drop spindle. I do some beading and embroidery, but not as much as I used to. So many obsessions, so little time!
Bright green is my favorite color. I love the combination of bright green, bright blue, purple and black. Basically, anything jewelry-toned or bright. I also love red and black together. I DO NOT like pastels or muddy colors, or neon yellow or orange. I also like pink & brown together and pink and white.
Fabric I use mostly bold, brightly colored fabrics in my work, so please don't send me any fabrics that are pastel or very country. While fat quarters are fine, I also like receiving fabric pieces larger than that (1/2 yard, 1 yard, etc.). Tone-on-tone or marble fabrics are fine and very useful, but please do not send me any solid colored fabrics! I do not use them!
Types of fabric I use a lot or am looking for:
Fabrics I DON'T use so please don't send:
Yarn I knit a lot of kitchen stuff, so I use a lot of worsted weight cotton like Sugar 'N' Cream. I also like to knit socks and lace, so I love lace, fingering, and sport weight yarns, but I like heavier weights as well. I especially love anything hand-dyed!!!!
I do not use any acrylic/polyester yarn unless it is a novelty yarn like fun fur, etc.
One of my very favorite things to receive is Edibles, especially ones from outside the USA. I also like to receive edibles local to my USA partners. (Store-bought only, please)
I am involved in some tea swaps, mostly for my husband, who loves tea. (I am trying really, really hard to like tea, but am having a hard time LOL!) My husband prefers white or green teas, but is very open to trying new ones. However, he does not like plain black tea, lemon, peach, or chai tea. If you really want to make his day, his favorite tea is pomegranate.
Loose leaf tea is very welcome, too, for any tea swap or as an extra, as long as it is clearly labeled.
