About Me

My name is Anna and I am 28. I am an aspiring textile artist and writer. I like wildlife, trees, and bugs. I live in the UK; Southern England. I love to make things and look forward to meeting new people through swap-bot. I am disabled and suffer from fibromyalgia.

I love animals and am a crazy dog lady! This is why:

The big yellow dog is called Luna, she is about a year old, and is a rescue from Romania. She is scared of everything and is very funny and sweet. She is a little thief and will steal anything she can get her teeth into! She is particularly keen on googly eyes and felt! The Cocker Spaniel is called Cassie, she's seven, and she is spoilt rotten! She is my baby, and is the cuddliest, lovliest animal in the world!

Favorite Books

I love books, particularly murder mysteries, and I love the audiobook format. Agatha Christie is my all time favorite author,and I like Dorothy Sayers too. I love Ann Granger - the Campbell and Carter mysteries are brilliant.

Sometimes my reading shifts into sci fi stuff as well, like Jasper Fford and Ben Aaronovitch.

I also like classics like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Around the World in 80 days, and The 39 steps.

Favorite Crafts

I make textile art involving textiles, sewing, and mixed media.

Freehand embroidery on a sewing machine is my main passion, but I am not always up to it and I do lots of different things.

Playing with different fabrics and textures.

Thread wrapping and playing with string.

Wire Craft, with fabric, without fabric, I give everything a try!

Paper Mache and air dry clay and plaster of paris!

Playing with colour, paints and dyes.

Anything messy!

Favorite Television

I love watching television programs Some of my favorites are Castle, Major Crimes, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Father Brown; anything with a few bodies and some good mysteries!

I also love sitcoms: Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Mom, How I met your Mother, Franklin and Bash.

And older tv like The Bionic Woman, Knight Rider, The A Team, MacMillan and Wife, Mork and Mindy, Mission Impossible, Partners in Crime, Miss Marple (Joan Hickson).

Bill Bailey and Rhys Darby are my favorite comedians although I like to watch lots of different people - there is nothing like a good chuckle!

Favorite Movies

I love old films, children's films, action/adventure films. Anything light and fun!

Kingsman: The Secret Service, Night at the Museum 1, 2, and 3, How to Train Your Dragon, Breakfast at Tiffany's, How to steal a Million, Transformers, The Incredibles, Epic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jayne Eyre, Miss Potter, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.


I am most interested in ATC swapping and I am keen to receive your art and your ideas. I make fabric/sewn ATCs.

If we are doing profile based swapping, there are lots of things I love. Forests, trees, blubells, magical forests, gnomes, goblins. I love wildlife in general, but particularly badgers, foxes, moths, toadstools, bugs, beetles and funky coloured fungus! Ponds, frogs, and lillypads are also a favourite.

I also love Doctor Who, (particularly the tardis and the stone angels) Ninja Turtles, transformers, anything Halloween related, Alice in Wonderland, and things that are quirky and different.

Green and blue are my favorite colours, all different shades, and I love bright colours - yellow and orange and red too. I'm not very girly, so am not too keen on pink.

Have you read any of the Maisie Dobbs series? They are written by Jacquelin Winspear and are mysteries with an historic connection to World War 1. I have read the first 8 and I think there are several more. [email protected]
