Favorite Crafts

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've yet to get into full blown card making, but never say never....

Favorite Books

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.

Favorite Music

I will listen to anything apart from opera. Being a bit of a biker chick I do listen to a lot of rock music.I am a big fan (still lol) of 80s stuff.

Favorite Television

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....

Pets

! My pets lol I have a Chilean Rose Tarantula called Rosie and a four year old rescue cat (long haired Red Tabby) called Amber. I also have a 50 year old boyfriend. He's housetrained (describes himself as semi feral lol) but could do with going to obedience classes...

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!

About Me

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 jewellery, especially earrings. I am mad about rats and have kept them as pets for over 20 years. I have a thing for unicorns and tigers. I love fantasy art, especially Anne Stokes. I can drive, but don't enjoy it! I am an Executive Officer for the Department for Work and Pensions (I make entitlement decisions on welfare benefits). I love being by the sea. Not much of a drinker but like dry white wine. My boyfriend is a biker and we go to bike rallies which involves camping and him consuming vast amounts of alcohol lol. I was widowed on 1st March 2015 but didn't find out he'd died until 16th June 2017! I am engaged to a lovely guy called Richard.I have an 12year old stepdaughter and a 17 year old stepson.I am a member of several fb cross stitch and Zentangle groups and regularly take part in their monthly swaps. I have 13 tattoos and 11 piercings. I am on Facebook, Goodreads and Pinterest as Lynda Kirkpatrick and I also have a Facebook page called Lynda's Craft Stuff. I'm on Postcrossing as Minxy1964. It is nigh on impossible to offend me, so don't worry on that front....

Swap info

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.

Easing back into swapping

I am easing myself back into swapping after having had major reconstructive knee surgery on 5th August 2016. My mobility 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...
