About Me

Jan 2, 2021

Hi there, It has been a pretty hard journey. My eyesight is not what it was, but at least Iโ€™m now not in as much pain as I first was after surgery. After quite a few setbacks I think I am now ready to do one swap at a time to see how I go.

Thank you all so much for your understanding

May 29, 2019

I have to once again have eye surgery. This time on my โ€˜goodโ€™ eye. The surgeons are unable to tell me when Iโ€™ll be able to see again.. very scary...

Surgery is beginning of July so I will not be joining anymore swaps. Please keep me in your thoughts whilst I recover, which could take up to a year assuming all goes well.

Will miss you all whilst Iโ€™m away.

20th August 2018 Hi, After a fantastic trip to Canada and Alaska in May/June 2018. I kind of fell apart. I was back in hospital for two weeks and Iโ€™ve had issues with my eyesight. So I have had to stand back from SwapBot ๐Ÿ˜ข. I am truly hoping to get back into swapping soon.

Hi, My name is Ros/Roslyn.

I live in Sydney Australia

I am married and the mother of 3 children. I love making ATCs and I also am addicted to patchwork. I mean I love material and I love designing just don't get as many quilts completed as I wish I could due to my sight restrictions.

I also belong to a wonderful Aussie/NZ online quilt group.

My twins turned 29 in November and my eldest son is 33 and he got married in April 2013. And lives not too far away. He and his wife had their first baby,. A beautiful girl on 11 Sept 2017

My only daughter was married in February 2015 and they both lived with us for 3 years but now are in their new home in Nov 2015 . They had a beautiful daughter (3 July 2016). She has now had another baby girl 4 September 2019.

So now we have three gorgeous granddaughters to spoil ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

My youngest (son) works in IT and lives with us.

We also have 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels whom I love. A ruby girl called Pippa is 4 she is a real snuggler. She is Aunty to brothers, Tavish, a Blenheim, a gentle nervous soul. And Chance, a tri colour- he is our little devil,- if something has been eaten, stolen or a hole dug, we know he was the instigator lol. Just as well he is cute like all of them

I haven't worked for a very long time, since I was 26 years old, after an eye operation went wrong, but I try very hard to keep occupied with my crafting.

I had my left eye removed in November 2011. I have a prosthetic eye now and I believe it looks pretty good.

I will always do my very best work - slow but I get it done on time.

Update 26 July 2014

After many operations and problems with my eye over the past couple of years. I am very much hoping the last surgery will have fixed everything.

My hubby and I went on a fantastic trip to Europe in 2014. Now I have the travel bug lol. We also went to Canada and Alaska with a short stay in Seattle in 2018. Fabulous..

I will always rate as soon as I receive. I Pledge to Rate

I am not really an orange or yellow person - but don't mind them in roses ๐Ÿ’ I am not into kiddy things or anime. Also not big on Halloween. No skulls, gore etc. Unfortunately recently I have lost my sense of smell, so scented items are not the best. I'm allergic to peanuts so no thank you I also haven't been unable to drink coffee since I was pregnant many years ago

Tea is not allowed to be imported into Australia so please do not send any if you live internationally. But I love Earl Grey.

Flakers - please if you are having a problem let me know I promise I wont bite....


I have discovered the addiction of ATC well all paper crafts now

So anything to do with them gladly received.

Dresden trim is so hard to get in Australia so if you have any spare, I would be thrilled to take it off your hands โค๏ธ

I love anything with a bit of glitter. Just love a bit of sparkle :-).

I am particularly fond of anything vintage. - charms, pretty buttons, Lace, Ribbons.

I am into shabby chic and Victoriana.

My dogs are my joy and keep me company so love all things Cavalier King Charles.

My favourite artist is Thomas Kinkade. Such beauty that he painted

Cling Stamps, paper punches etc and Tim Holtz things are always special.

Also love Christmas. Angels especially .

Favourite material collections are soft pastels, and florals, but I love bright hand dyes as well

I like to think I am fairly easy to please :-) My favourite flowers are pretty much all the spring ones anything scented. Love Rose and Orchids.

I'm a chocoholic lol, especially the dark kind though most chocolates are welcome. Including hot chocolate. If you are in Australia my favourite tea is Earl Grey.

Favorite Books

I love mainly historical romance and all the Elm Creek books.

Also love fantasy fiction like Harry Potter, and the Erragon series.

Lately into mystery/crime

Because I can't see very good now, I listen to audio books on audible


I do not like flakers

I will always do my swaps. If you do not receive yours PLEASE contact me first before giving me a bad rating. The post can be wonderful at times but then again it can also be shocking. I will re-send if needs be.

Not Rated - I have contacted these people on numerous occasions ๐Ÿ˜ž

Comment: Hi Roslyn and thank you so much for the two collage cards! We have three dogs but none of them are big enough to get into any of my craft supplies or I'm sure they would have a heyday! You have so many wonderful elements in both of these card and beautiful collaged backgrounds as well. I love the effect that stitching gives any project and this is no exception. Lovely trims and papers - just so pretty! And thank you for the card you made with Alcohol Pearls. I don't have any and have never tried them but this turned out so pretty - I'll have to check them out! Take care and hope it cools off for you soon.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Youโ€™d be surprised how clever these naughty pips can be lol. Iโ€™ve one in particular who is way too clever and can even take lids off unopened bottles... yes, you must give the Alchol inks a go, they are such fun to use.
