About Me

20th August 2018 Hi, After a fantastic trip to Canada and Alaska in May/June 2018. I kind of fell apart. I was back in hospital for two weeks and I’ve had issues with my eyesight. So I have had to stand back from SwapBot 😢. I am truly hoping to get back into swapping soon.

16th April 2018 SO SORRY BUT IVE HAD TO GO TO HODPITAL UNEXPECTEDLY IM HOPING TO GET HOME SOMEWHEN NEXT WEEK. Darn... Won’t be home till 25th April . I’ve had to drop from a swap 😟

Hi, My name is Ros/Roslyn.
I live in Sydney Australia

UPDATE 14th April 2018

I will be going to Canada and Alaska, with a short stopover in Seattle in May and June this year 2018. So I’ll not be doing swaps for a while. I just signed up for my last swap till I return. I’m so excited to be seeing some of the beautiful country on the other side of the world to me.

I am married and the mother of 3 children. I love making ATCs and I also am addicted to patchwork. I mean I love material and I love designing just don't get as many quilts completed as I wish I could due to my sight restrictions.

I also belong to a wonderful Aussie/NZ online quilt group.

My twins turned 26 in November and my eldest son is 30 and he got married in April 2013. And lives not too far away. He and his wife had their first baby in September. A beutiiful girl on 11 Sept 2017

My only daughter was married in February 2015 and they both Lived with us for 3 years but have now moved into their brand new home in Nov 2015 . They had a beautiful daughter (3 July 2016).

So now we have two gorgeous granddaughters to spoil 💖💖

My youngest (son) works in IT and lives with us.

We also have 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels whom I love. A tri colour girl called Brea (Tri-Colour) she is 5 a really very cuddly girl and a ruby girl called Pippa is 1, she is a real snuggler and is a little devil as well.

I haven't worked for a very long time, since I was 26 years old, after an eye operation went wrong, but I try very hard to keep occupied with my crafting.

I recently had my left eye removed so still getting used to this (I have a prosthetic one and I believe it looks pretty good). I will always do my very best work - slow but I get it done on time.

Update 26 July 2014

After many operations and problems with my eye over the past couple of years. I am very much hoping the last surgery will have fixed everything.

My hubby and I went on a fantastic trip to Europe in 2014. Now I have the travel bug lol.

I will always rate as soon as I receive. I Pledge to Rate

I am not really an orange or yellow person - but don't mind them in roses 🌹 I am not into kiddy things anymore or anime. Also not big on Halloween (we really don't do it here). No skulls, gore etc. Dislike musk, vanilla and strawberry scents . I'm allergic to peanuts so no thank you I also haven't been able to drink coffee since I was pregnant many years ago

Tea is not allowed to be imported into Australia so please do not send any if you live internationally.

Flakers - please if you are having a problem let me know I promise I wont bite....


I have discovered the addiction of ATCs and been in a quite a few swaps now and just love them. I also enjoying making Zentangles
So anything to do with them gladly received.

I also love patchwork. Love all things like needles (self threading), threads (cotton for sewing macine) and anything to do with this.

Dresden trim is so hard to get in Australia so if you have any spare, I would be thrilled to take it off your hands 😀

I love anything with a bit of glitter. well just love anything with a sparkle :-).

I am particularly fond of anything vintage. - charms, pretty buttons, Lace, Ribbons.

I am into shabby chic and Victoriana.

My dogs are my joy and keep me company so love all things Cavalier King Charles.

My favourite artist is Thomas Kinkade. Such beauty that he painted

Cling Stamps, paper punches etc and Tim Holtz things are always special.

Favourite paper collection would be Graphic 45.

Also love Christmas. Angels especially .

Favourite material collections are soft pastels, and florals, but I love bright hand dyes as well

I like to think I am fairly easy to please :-) My favourite flowers are pretty much all the spring ones anything scented. Love Rose and Orchids.

I'm a chocoholic lol, especially the dark kind though most chocolates are welcome. Including hot chocolate. If you are in Australia my favourite tea is Earl Grey.

Favorite Books

I love mainly historical romance and all the Elm Creek books.

Also love fantasy fiction like Harry Potter, and the Erragon series.

Because I can't see very good now, I listen to audio books.


I do not like flakers

I will always do my swaps. If you do not receive yours PLEASE contact me first before giving me a bad rating. The post can be wonderful at times but then again it can also be shocking. I will re-send if needs be.
