About Me

Hi! Here I am - almost at the middle of a century, with one grown up daughter and one pre-school son, living in the North West of the England in a village in the Ribble Valley.

Pretty new to swaps, but loving ones I have taken part in outside swap-bot - but my daughter has got me wanting to join more!

I am self employed with 2 diferent jobs, one based at home, and the other as a diet consultant running local groups helping people lose weight after losing more than half my body weight myself.

Things I love.... first and formost - TEXTILES - I have a degree in contemporary textiles but I love vintage just as much, and love to 'rescue' old hand embroidered linen etc that someone put hours of work into - then I restore or re-cycle/upcycle or just add it to my collection - scraps are awesome! I also love visible mending, darning, boro, sashiko, patching etc.

Second, I have almost quit caffeine and sugar so I love fruit/herb/etc tea - so looking forward to joining some tea swaps - especially one from Europe "Caramel Apple Pie" flavour - but I am enjoying them all!

I love post cards and post crossing - it's such a lovely way to make small connections across the globe

I love photography - colour, black and white, landscape, portrait, close ups, anything!

I love and truly appreciate anything hand made - it's not all about the object but about the care, time and love that goes into it - so much more personal and treasured than store bought.

things I don't want..; Plastic, not always avoidable but if possible, please none...

Food items - especially if sent from overseas - doesn't always travel well, and my husband has quite a few intollerances and allergies.

Besides that (and I shall update as I learn) I am happy with anything that makes your soul sing, because it will make mine sing too.

I hope that gives you a good idea about me - but it's not all about me - I want to learn about you too!

Happy Swapping

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful teas! And oh gosh, I bet the climate is very different where you live from Hawaii. But rag dolls are super cool! Just the idea of making something of your own that you can customize is great!
