I will always send out my swaps. If for any reason there is a mess up with the post office I would like a chance to resend the item before being negatively scored. This is a great site and I am really looking forward to future swaps! Thanks!
I grew up on the east coast, lived in Chicago for awhile and now have settled in San Diego. I love traveling and have been fortunate to see parts of the world. I have been collecting postcards for many years and I was quite surprised to see how many do so here.
Christmas is my favorite time of the year! My husband and I go a bit overboard decorating for the Christmas holidays.
- I did not paint this, this is my favorite painting and I have yet to find the artist- the signature is indecipherable.
When I am creating quilts, I only work with cottons. I have done one baby quilt in flannel, but I just didn't enjoy it as much. I have shelves of fabrics of all colors, patterns and themes. I am particularly fond of black and white patterns, they seem to brighten my quilts. I already mentioned Scotties as a favorite craft item, but I love fabrics with them in it.
These are a few of my favorite craft related things (they are in no special order):
I do not like/want any religious items or incense.
Not a big fan of the following postcards:
* Art (old or new)
* Beach scenes
Oh dear... this is very hard, because even my least favorite color can present a fun craft challenge. I guess my favorite colors are purple and forest green.
Yes, I am a Jane Austen fan and a J.K. Rowling fan, sigh. I know Jane Austen is no longer alive, but hopefully J. K. Rowling will continue writing.
I also enjoy Tolkien, Ludlum, James Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman and Nora Ephron.
I really do not like Horror and Vampires, I keep a steady supply of garlic to ward them off.
I have started to collect vintage recipes and cookbooks. What I like most of all is the cherished recipes that are past down through the generations. I think it is because both my mother and grandmothers couldn't cook so I have had to create my own collection.
Side note: I have been eating the diabetic way, which has helped to keep the weight down. But I really love chocolate- milk and dark (not so much the white), and will indulge occasionally (okay... more than occasionally). I like the afternoon tea with scones and sandwiches. I love pancakes and pasta.
All the Harry Potter movies, All the Star War movies, Pride and Prejudice all versions, Lord of the Rings, Finding Nemo, Cold Comfort Farm, I Robot, Men in Black I and II, Power of One....
I do not care for horror films.
I love limericks and I thought I would include the wonderful one's I have received in swaps:
Anna Sue, Santa's Helpers can tell,
In your heart is a jingling bell,
And its tinkling note,
Keeps the spirit afloat,
Have a Merry, Nostalgic Noel!
There once was a woman who tried,
To always keep Christmas inside.
She liked all the cheer
She thought it was dear
She was known for spreading it wide.
My favorite meal is pasta,
It makes me knit much faster,
I'm Anna Sue, How do you do?
Of postcards I'm the master!
If I wasn't quite so potty,
I'd talk about the Scottie,
And how Jane Austen's city,
Was awfully pretty,
And how vampires send me dotty!
