Update 23/2/13: I have been away from Swap-bot for a few years now. I have changed countries, and moved from Ireland to New Zealand. I am interested in getting back into swapping, it is a lot more expensive here to post things, so I may be doing this on a very small scale.
Hi I am Rochelle and I have lived in London, ande in Co Donegal in Ireland. I am now back living in Auckland, New Zealand where I grew up.
I am married and have a son Max who is 8 years old and autistic, and loves to help me make things. I work full time.
I joined swap bot back in November 2008 and quickly became addicted! Since I joined I have been doing lots of machine sewing and cross stitch making all sorts of new projects which has been great. The best thing is that I have also made lots of friends already through swapbot!
I promise to rate you as soon as I receive your swap (that day or next day at the latest). I always send my swaps out on time, usually earlier. I recycle packaging in a not too obvious way.
I have now got my mum onto swapbot, she is @calicocat here. Welcome mum!
Thanks to my recent visit by my mother and a trip to a Quilting show, I now have a new interest - quilting! I have yet to make my first quilt, I have all the things to start, just need to find the time now! I have been cross stitching and sewing since the age of 10. I used to be able to knit and crochet, but I am afraid that I have forgotten how to! I would love to learn to crochet again. My main hobbies are sewing, cross stitch, making Christmas ornaments, and I have just discovered a new skill at making dotee dolls! I would like to start making fabric inchies and ATCs in the future, I have seen some great examples on flickr which have inspired me to start!
Gilmore Girls, CSI, Cold Case, any BBC Jane Austen or Bronte historical costume dramas.
Amelie, Gosford Park, O Brother Where Art Thou, Three Weddings & a Funeral, Fried Green Tomatoes
I thought I would make a list of some of the fantastic things I have received here. This is not a complete list so please don't be insulted if I haven't included you! I especially like handmade things:
@sewsouthern sent me a giant pincushion which is in daily use, and that I can't do without!
@beancounter sent me a beautiful patchwork pincushion that I use for my special decorative pins
@JacquiMcR sent me a beautiful handmade craft bag with little houses handsewn on the side
