I wanted to let you all know that @Kelsey8 is my son's girlfriend who is living with me. She watched her almost Aunt Linda @linda50 and I crafting and swapping and wanted to join in. @linda50 got Rachel's approval for Kelsey and I to both use my mailing address before Kelsey signed up with her own account. Kelsey is brand new to swapping and has been really enjoying Swap-Bot and learning new crafts.
*********About Me************* I am a 50 yr old woman who loves to craft. I am a craft addict who likes to try and do a wide variety of crafts.
Lately I have been doing a lot of sewing. I purchased a new sewing machine in February and am currently making my first queen size quilt. I made quilts for my grandkids and 3 children already. I have also been making lots of coin purses and little bags since I got my new sewing machine.
I love collecting vintage linens, especially vintage hankies. I have started to collect some other types of vintage linen, such as dresser scarves, towels and napkins.
Jewelry making, crocheting, paper crafts, metal work and probably anything else you can think of are some of my other passions. I have tried to draw and paint but, let's just say I have a ways to go on those skills.
My very first love is my family. I have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. My oldest son and his family (with the 2 grandchildren) just moved back from Idaho and now live 10 minutes from me. Yippee!!!! Both of my grandchildren love to "sew" with me. They choose the pattern and thread and we embroider whatever they want. It is so much fun, I love them.
I always rate....and always send.....if you haven't received a swap from me, please let me know and I will be happy to resend.
JD. Robb is my current favorite. I also read murder mysteries and who done-its.
In non-fiction sewing books and craft books are my favorites. Currently I am reading and re-reading all of the Jelly Roll Quilt Books and Quilting books that I own, which is a lot of books.
I love looking at jewelry making book. Crochet patterns are great to collect.

I wanted to let everyone know that I rate what you earn. If you send late to me without communication then I will rate you a 3. If it has been 2 weeks since the send by date and you have not marked sent, you will receive a 1 until I receive something from you. If you have marked sent I will wait 2 weeks in the US and 4-6 weeks for international packages to rate the 1. Of course once I receive I will re-rate with the appropriate rating. I do always PM my partners prior to leaving the low rating to let them know how I will be rating.
I will of course work with anyone with a true emergency. PM me if you have any questions about my commitment to follow Swap-Bot's rating policies.
To make swap-Bot safe for all swappers we all need to rate what people earn, when they earn it. I encourage you all to do it as well.
Speaking of rating what you earn, I am a generous heart giver. If you put heart (effort) into your swap I will give you a heart. I don't need extras for hearts.
