I'm a sewer. I love my sewing machine and I wish I were a bit more organized so I could be more productive. But still it's great fun, being an autodidact, I'm slowly daring more risky clothes for the kids. they're growing and oppiniating, so now I have to make a hoodie with a superhero cape attached, but the cape couldn't be to long but it has to be like Batman's... O, and mommy, I like Ben10, can you make me his clothes as well? And his watch? only happy to oblige :-)
Next to sewing all kinds of stuff I'm into polymer clay. I'm not a big sculpter, but I've got an ease for not to hard, small projects.
Knitting and crocheting...... well, I mastered them but there's something rather boring about it for me. I used to knit listening to classical music, drinking wine and believing I was so Ubercool... those days are long gone I'm afraid, now I just throw my knitting needles out of the window... I would love to know how to do amigurumi, but so far it's not very successful. Youtube has taught me to crochet again, and I'm mastering most flowers and headbands now.
ABOUT FOODS AND DRINKS:
please note that I cannot digest sweets at the moment, I have had a gastric bypass last August and my intestines just don't like anything sweet. I do like (and can eat) savory things. crisps (salt and vinegar, spicy tastes,...) GOLDFISH CRACKERS, anything hot (as in very spicy). If you have a question about it, feel free to shoot me a pm.
I don't drink coffee or black tea's. Infusion tea's are okay, but please, keep the licorice to yourself :-)
So....... WHAT I'M INTO:
I am a big fan of David the Gnome, the series drawn and painted by Rien Poortvliet. He was a Dutch artist with wonderful skills. Feel free to google him :-)
I would love you forever if you could send me a vintage (or from a vintage series) pattern for dresses of the 40s, 50s and 60s. Thinking Butterick or Burda or whatever you can find! I am a size 14 and dropping...
themes I like are cupcakes, strawberry's, kawaii, mushrooms( the kind that dwarfs live in, not the edible kind), fairies, magic, rainbow, pretty flowers, cherry's, apples, ladybugs, polkadots
cottons and knits, cheerful fabrics, NO solids
stamps and ink cushions
craft stuff in general (no bits and pieces of paper though)
Glass Beads made by you
amigurumi's made by you
Felt plushies or foodies!
I really like the vintage Gutermann little boxes. or anything from the 'pin up' era (late 40's, early 50's.)
wink-to-steampunk items, like mustachioed octopi, owls with high hats, geared rings,...
Ireally love to receive vintage sewing patterns, from the 50's and 60's. for women and children. I would worship you forever if you could send me that.
anything with a lot of thought and care in it makes my heart leap really...
Winnie the Pooh and his little friends ,
cats, dogs, spiders
the color orange and blue,
coffee, shabby things, old and ragged things.
stickers, especially the reward/cheapo kinda stuff.
things that are rushed together. I make great efforts on my swaps, I just expect the same from you.
