Favorite Crafts

I'm still a newbie to sewing, but I get addicted more and more each day. I love fabric! Looking at my (yet small) stash of colourful cotton and linen makes me happy and dozens of ideas what to make of it are coming to my mind. :)

About Me

I'm from Germany, 34 years old and I would like to discover the swap-world with you. When I travel, I always walk straight into supermarkets or shoppingmalls, to see what kind of products are sold there. What people eat, and wear and read. But I don't travel enough, so I need to swap. Urgently! And maybe you are curious about the stuff that we have here in Germany, so I may help you out?

I like things that are typical for the region my swap partner is living in.

A few random things I like: * cats (a little black and white one is sharing my place with me)

  • japanese fabric, linen fabric, vintage fabic with flower patterns or kitchen motives

  • potholders, coasters, kitchentowels (vintage ones are also great), pin cushions

  • chocolate (no white or to dark ones please), plain milk chocolate is the best!

  • zipper pouches, tote bags, aprons

  • watermelons, lemons, oranges, strawberries

  • Iceland, France, Italy

  • typical edibles from your country

  • cupcakes, coffee, tea (herbal or fruity or white, no black teas plase) and related items

  • birds, esp. owls

  • the Moomins, Momiji, Alice in wonderland, Monokuro Boo

  • moleskine notebooks, but other notebooks too

  • flea markets, scented candles, polka dots, photography

  • buttons, ribbon, deco tape, embroidery floss and other sewing items

  • pasta, ice cream, music and movies

  • all kinds of flowers and plants

  • scandinavian design

and anything YOU made. :)

My favorite colours are all shades of blue and greens, turquoise, white and tomatored. I also like the combination of black and white. I'm not a big fan of pink, but if it's not the dominant colour it is ok to me !

Favorite Books

My favorite author right now is Neil Gaiman. But I read nearly every genre, from Fiction to Thrillers to Cookbooks! Yes, I really love Cookbooks. :)

Favorite Music

Ben Folds Five, Wilco, Jeff Buckley, Muse, The White Stripes, K`s choice, Placebo, Hole, Guillemots, Ryan Bingham, Bush, The Duke Spirit, Beatsteaks, Our Lady Peace, etc.

Comment: Du bist völlig verrückt. Ich meine, das war mir ja schon lange klar, aber hier kam heute ganz entzückend aussehende Post von dir an und statt einem waren darin vier großartige Dinge. So geht das nicht! Na gut, in Wirklichkeit freu ich mich riesig und sage 1000 Dank für das tolle Buch, den wunderschönen Stoff und die beiden Teesorten! ♥

Vielen lieben Dank auch für deinen tollen Brief! Ich wünsche dir ganz wunderschöne Weihnachten!

Comment: Dear Petra, thank you very much for all your wonderful surprises. ♥ I loved opening the packages one after the other! ^^ I smiled seeing the postcard because Nicole sent me the same! lol I'll take yours to decorate my desk at work. I loooove the colorful box! Wow! I also love your handmade boots. :o) I think I will copy the model to do the same to my mother and my sisters. My boyfriend and I have already tasted the chocolate and almonds: they are delicious! The handkerchiefs are very funny! And of course I looove the great fabric and buttons. Today it is a bit like Santa Claus came to visit my mailbox! :D Hugs.

Comment: thank you so much for the craft book hun! It's adorable!!
Comment: Mann, hab ich wieder ein Glück gehabt!!! Ein besseres Päckchen hätte ich nie bekommen können. Die Tasche ist großartig, genau wie die Stoffe, die Knöpfe und die Bänder! Und dann noch die hübschen Servietten und das leckere Fruchtgummi! 1000 Dank dafür, Petra! Du rockst!!! Aber sowas von!
Comment: Petra, your parcel arrived, it wasn't lost. I'm so happy! I adore the bits and pieces you chose for me, thank you very much for a lovely parcel. I opened it today, what a big surprise! I cannot wait to try the chocs - the banana one looks like a bit of heaven! Petra, we especially love an item: a super cute handmade heart, it's the most pretty thing ever! Did you made it? I'm curious and mum too! Petra, your parcel give us a bit of happiness in these difficult moments, thank you very much, danke!
Response: OMG! I can`t believe it, Daniela. Just had the second parcel ready to be sent to you. Over three months! 3 MONTHS!! Was it damaged? I`m so happy. :) It is a handmade heart, but not by me. I bought it from a girl who sews stuff and donates the money she earns for good causes. I'm sending hugs to you and your mum. :o)
Comment: Petra, I rec'd the felt tree today from Etsy. Thanks for sending it. Now I need to find the perfect place/project for it.

Mello rated for Merry Christmas Birdies! on Dec 2, 2009
Comment: Vielen lieben Dank Petra, auch das du an Jakob gedacht hast! Er ist ganz hin und weg von den Dino-Keksen! Der Stiefel-Anhänger ist wirklich super - ich mag vor allem den roten Stoff den du da benutzt hast! Ist schon witzig, das du schon wieder mich als Swap-Partner hattest - irgendwie scheint der bot uns gerne zusammen zu würfeln, genauso wie mich und Ingrid, die hat auch mittlerweile schon 3 Päckchen von mir.... Auf jeden Fall habe ich mich sehr über dein Päckchen gefreut, nochmal vielen lieben Dank und noch eine schöne ruhige Adventzeit für dich!
Response: Gerne, Melanie! Hihi, ich musste auch schmunzeln, mit anderen Birdies hatte ich dafür noch gar nichts zu tun. Aber das wird sich bei hoffentlich noch vielen schönen Swaps sicher noch ändern! :)
Mello rated for Cozy care package for fall on Oct 30, 2009
Comment: Danke für das schöne Päckchen - die Stoffe sind toll, das Badesalz duftet super lecker, und die Schokoflocken sind genau richtig. Die Buchschachtel hat sich gerade mein Sohnemann geschnappt, weil das "das beste Schatzversteck überhaupt" ist :o) Vielleicht kann ich sie ja gegen ein paar Gummibärchen wieder eintauschen. Vielen lieben Dank!
Response: Super, das freut mich riesig! Mal schauen ob der Gummibärchen-Deal klappt, hehe. :)
