About Me

Hello! I'm a British female engineer and I'm curious about everything. I've also just gone back to university for my masters degree in railway engineering, so I'm going to be busy :)

I really enjoy post and getting home to find something exciting or pretty waiting for me! It can make a bad day so much better to receive a lovely letter or gift.

I love travelling to new places, I have a long list of places I'd like to go - some local places for days out and some places I might never see, but I can dream :)

I really enjoy creating things and making things look pretty. My current projects are dressmaking, quilting, and watercolour painting.

I also love just watching beautiful views, sunsets, the stars, and getting to the middle of nowhere and just stopping to be alive :) I like to go out hill walking to see the views.

A few more specific things I like include: typography/ quotes, tarot, sewing, reading, Studio Ghibli, maps, art and museums.

I'd love to swap foreign sewing or quilting magazines, if anyone would like to trade :)

✉ I appreciate nice stamps but I'm not a collector.

Sewing and quilting

✂ I really like rich coloured fabrics, geometric patterns and bright floral prints. I love Japanese fabrics! Please nothing too primary coloured or childish/ cartoons.

✂ Colours I particularly like are greens, blues and purples.

✂ I'd love to receive sewing magazines, patterns or articles in any language!

✂ I learnt to make clothes for my toys when I was little, and I still make some things for me, but I'm struggling to find enough time at the moment...

✂ I've been quilting for a couple of years now. I like modern quilts and I don't have the patience for anything too fiddly! Currently enjoying FPP to make interesting blocks :)

Sewn or handcrafted items I'd love to receive include: ✂ Bags, zip pouches, storage containers, ✂ Quilt blocks and mini quilts, ✂ Decorations, bunting, ✂ Cushion covers or pillowcases

Drink and food

✿ If you want to send food (or the swap requires it), I particularly like sweets, good quality chocolate and marzipan.

Thank you for your consideration :)

❈ Anything containing cashew nuts

Comment: What a nice travel-style zine. I did a little google travelling to see more of Anglesey and Snowdonia. Beautiful, wild and windswept. Looks like a wonderful place to get away from it all and enjoy a bit of rugged nature. Thanks for creating your zine and sharing it elinor.
