About Me


My name is Lucy, I live in Yorkshire, England with my 5 rats; Kaos, Piff, Gomez, Prince and Herman. I enjoy swimming, slacklining and walking and recently got an adult push scooter which makes commuting to work great fun!

My other hobbies (apart from swapping!) are reading, baking, Morris dancing and photography.

I haven't been active on Swapbot for a while but am keen to get back into swapping!

Crafts I'm into at the moment are:- crocheting Amigurumi, sewing sock monsters and loom banding. I used to make lots of ATCs and am exploring inchie, zentangles and matchbox crafts at the moment…

I ALWAYS rate when I have received something

Favorite Music

I like most music apart from hip hop and rap. Some of my favorite bands/artists are, Imagine Dragons, Family of the Year, REM, Nickelback, Zutons, The Feeling, Jimmy Eat World, Pink, Jose Gonzales, Holloways, Mika, Amy McDonald, McFly, Shadows, Willie Mason, My Chemical Romance, Zutons, Idlewild, Bond, Good Charlotte, Rascal Flatts, Dixie Chicks, Darius Rucker, Bleached Wail, Abney Park and Pendulum. My i-pod goes everywhere with me!

merlinda on Apr 25, 2010:

hi, have followed you from another area, checked out some of your flivker pics of Amigurumi as i have not had one seen one in the real oh wow yours are great. particular like the gollys (male on best), dragon looks great, the penguin was fantastic. they all looked so clever. i went to look at the pics because you mention about sock monkeys , i have a feeling someone else i know has been making them but again i havenot seen one (yet). she was asking for odd/old socks last month so perhaps that is whet she is up to. do you have a pic of any? have a great week,
