About Me

I am going to try to take a break from swapping for awhile. I will probably do a swap here and there and I will also check up on my forum discussion I'm monitoring in We Love Anything to do with Sewing and Quilting until we get to that magic number to give away my prize.

Favorite Crafts




Hand Embroidery



Paper crafting

Craft Supplies I Collect

Or stuff my husband says I have too much of...




Crochet/Knitting Needles





Most of my dislikes revolve around flavors:

Coconut. I've tried and tried to like it. But the smell does make me think of the beach and summer.

Licorice or twizzlers. My husband and daughter both love twizzlers but I think it's like eating plastic.

Watermelon or any kind of melon or cantaloupe. Again, the rest of the family loves it and I suffer through having it around.

Favorite Books


Favorite Things

I love all colors but my bestest ones are: Deep reds and dark pinks, purple, forest greens, yellow for accenting and jewel-tone blues/greens. I've been in a brown mood lately especially paired with pink or purple.

Candy: Reese Peanut Butter Easter Eggs, Jelly Belly beans (especially toasted marshmallow), Peeps (any season), Lindt truffles and chocolate covered peanuts.

Coffee: Absolute favorite is Godiva Pumpkin which is only available in the fall.

Tea: I will try any kind of tea. My favorites are rooibos, chai, peach, vanilla and mango. Adding a new fave: jasmine.

Aroma: Fresh baked bread, just-out-of-the oven snickerdoodle cookies, playdough and Crayola Crayons.

Favorite cities I've been to: New Orleans, Chicago, Washington D.C


Hmmm....I wish for.....

Funky yarn or fiber

Metallic threads

Knitting Needles

Quilt shop quality fat quarters

Rubber stamps - any kind, new or used. I just like playing with them

Inks or embossing powders.

Anything with a paisley or filigree design on it.

Wire-edged ribbon for making flowers.

Fabric paints and markers.

Silk/satin scrap fabrics for crazy-quilting

Unique beads

A clone to help me finish everything.


Comment: Well you have just spoiled me! I love the block you made, it is so well constructed! The embellishments are wonderful too! I have always wanted to try silk ribbon embroidery. Did you know there is a sample in the book that uses almost exactely the same watering can button you sent? How cool is that? Thank you soooooo much! You're a great swapper and swap coordinator!!!
Response: Thank you so much! I really liked putting that one together and want to do one for myself. Wow, that's cool about the button. I love doing silk ribbon embroidery. You get pretty results quick.

widelo123 rated for Granny Mandala Potholder on Jun 5, 2012
Comment: What a beautiful mandala. Just love the colors. Thank you, Shirley
Response: Thank you! I really liked this swap.
Comment: Hi Donna! Got my teas today! Thank you, I do love the Lady Grey, and I like Jasmine to :) Sadly I will have to pass on the Pineapple one, I can't have tropical fruit. Makes me very ill. But good job none the less!
Response: Aww, too bad you can't drink the tropical one. It is one of my faves and the only one I could find to represent the letter "K". Hopefully, you will be able to pass it on to the perfect person since you probably don't buy too many of those flavors.
Comment: Loved the mug rug and scarf - thanks so much!
kinzerclan rated for Ugly Fabric Fat Quarter Swap on May 16, 2012
Comment: thank you for the uglies... i loved them...
Comment: I like the fabrics, they're not ugly at all. lol, my 16 mo old daughter likes them so much she pulled off my bedspread to get to them when I set them on the bed to keep her from chewing the plastic bag.
Comment: Thanks a lot for wonderful tea!
Comment: LOVE the gecko - will make a nice pocket on a tote bag - thanks
Response: So glad you liked it. He will make a very nice pocket - great idea!
Comment: Thank you for the small teacup and saucer. I, too, don't know what green china is, but it is different from bone china.
Response: I'm so glad you liked it. I love little teacups.
flowerchild rated for Anything Goes Tea Bag Swap on Apr 4, 2012
Comment: I need to really look for the pumpkin spice tea next fall - I LOVE IT! thank you
Response: I have one more box I found on clearance (bonus!) but my first box I bought directly from the company.
Comment: The bag is fabulous! I will enjoy using the bag. I like how you used the fabric in the construction of the tote bag. The way that you put the colors together there is no hint of the original ugly fabric print. Good work. Thank you so much. I too enjoyed making something out of the so called "ugly fabric".
Response: Yay! I'm so glad you liked it. I really want one for myself now. That pattern would make great placemats, too.

Comment: I love my Wonky House and yes of course I will use it! I am going to donate this quilt when its done to Hospice. I love the flower wreath as well and Thank you for the fabric! The colors are perfect!
Response: That is very cool for you to do. I have a quilt I made my mom that I may give to hospice to hang on their wall. It is birds and birdhouses.
Comment: What a lovely package of goodies. I love it all. Happy Monday!

Comment: Thanks Donna, for the extra tea and I'm going to try that pumpkin Spice tea, I might find another tea that I like to drink. I loved your letter, also.
ArtyBeth3 rated for A Cup of Tea & a Friendly Letter on Mar 27, 2012
Comment: First of all, I LOVE your cute "kitten on books" note card! I enjoyed reading your letter and your 4am cat story (smile). Our cat is actually a tortoiseshell cat too. She is grey with blonde ginger coloring, with a white bib and white/grey/ginger coloring on her feet too. Thank you for the tea; I'm currently steeping the Hyson jasmine green tea - it smells wonderful. Thank you again for a lovely letter!
