I love knitting and crochet. I draw and I Zentangle. I cross stitch and can embroider. I've dabbled in making matchboxes and pocket letters. I am slightly obsessed with making felt stuffies. I enjoy cake baking. I've yet to get into full blown card making, but never say never....
I will read anything and everything! Give me an encyclopaedia and you won't see me for a week. My favourite authors are too many to mention. I have a Kindle Paperwhite and it goes everywhere with me.
I will listen to anything apart from opera. I'm a big fan of Amber Run, Skinny Living and Glass Caves. I don't mind a bit of folk music or blue grass occasionally. I am a sucker (still lol) for 80s music. It's an age thing hahaha.
I don't watch soaps. I like documentaries, especially crime, animals and history. I don't watch many films as I have a habit of falling asleep after the first 20 minutes....
I have a Chilean Rose Tarantula called Rosie, a six year old rescue cat (long haired Red Tabby) called Amber, and one elderly goldfish.
Glass seed beads
Purples and Pinks
Fresh ground coffee/coffee beans
My Little Pony
Anne Stokes artwork Postcards
Anything religion based
When making something for me, unless it is a profile based swap, please don't worry if your taste doesn't reflect mine. I am grateful to receive anything that you have taken the time and trouble to make for me!
Hi! My name is Lynda and I live in the north west of England with my partner. I am not religious but lean towards paganism/wicca. My favourite colours are purples, pinks and aquamarine. I'm an Aries/chinese wood dragon. I love silver jewellery, especially earrings. I am mad about rats and have kept them as pets on and off for over 30 years. I have a thing for unicorns and tigers. I love fantasy art, especially Anne Stokes. I do a lot of cake baking. I can drive, but don't enjoy it! I took early retirement from my job as an Executive Officer for the Department for Work and Pensions in July 2019. I love being by the sea and lived on the south coast for 22 years. Can't wait to move back to Plymouth. I'm not much of a drinker but like dry white wine and gin. I'm a full blown fresh ground coffee addict. I was widowed on 1st March 2015 but didn't find out he'd died until 16th June 2017, having separated in 2010 , which was strange to say the least. I am a member of several FB cross stitch and Zentangle groups and regularly take part in their monthly swaps. I have a significant number of tattoos, including a full sleeve, and 11 piercings. I'm on Postcrossing and Ravelry as Minxy1964. I lost my mum to lung and bone cancer on 24/02/20. Since then I've spent a lot of time cooking and shopping for dad, and generally helping him out. It is nigh on impossible to offend me, so don't worry on that front....
I will mark my swaps as sent once I have either put them in the Post Box or handed them over the Post Office counter. I always obtain proof of posting from the Post Office. I will not, however, send anything international by tracked mail due to the ridiculously high additional cost. I take and keep a photo of every swap before I post it. I am organised to the point of being anal, so all my swaps are made in advance of allocation, unless profile based. If your swap doesn't arrive, please message me before rating. I am in the UK and international post can take up to six weeks, probably longer during the Covid pandemic.

I began easing myself back into swapping after having had major reconstructive knee surgery on 5th August 2016. My mobility still isn't fantastic and it's a bit of a walk to the Post Office, so although I am back participating, it won't be to the extent I did pre op. If anyone wants the gory details of a total knee replacement, that you don't get told beforehand, feel free to ask...
