About Me

Loves: sewing, fabric, more fabric, sewing patterns, buttons, thread, sewing accoutrements (thread, spools, notions), vintage anything (buttons, spools, pictures), knitting, yarn, wool, knitting notions, needles, stitch markers, rulers/measurement, knitting patterns, books

Not so loves: beading (I've tried it, I like it, it doesn't like me. BUT! if YOU bead, I've got a lot of well intentioned purchases that will be your gain. Scrapping isn't my bag either. I'm not good with a camera, which renders scrapbooks pretty useless for me. Sad, but true.

Favorite Crafts

Wish list: Or, things that I like and use:

Fabric!
Any size, even scraps!
Favorite fabrics: Anna Maria Horner Muted, vintage-y florals Most Moda Anything with numbers or text! Heather Ross Heather Bailey Ginghams Polka Dot Stripes

Fabrics I don't really use: animal print, very child-like prints, character prints (Disney, John Deere, etc...) batiks, really bright florals

Sewing patterns: No kids clothes or toys, but most anything else!

I'm also an obssessive knitter, so any yarn (no allergies, so no real "dislike" in the knitting dept!). Would also love needles, patterns, stitch markers, etc.

Other crafts: Likes: papers, lined or squared paper. Vintage ephemera, thin cardboards (even ripped, old book covers, crate covers, etc) Rubber stamps (especially alphabet) Stamp ink Fabric paint

Don't really use: stickers, glittery things, kid themed crafts or fabrics, 'novelty' fabrics with animals, cartoon characters, etc.

Other things I like: Recipes Recipe cards Trinket boxes Chick-lit novels

Don't sends: Tea, coffee, foods. I'm sorry, I like them all, but I'm phobic about them being in the mail. I know it's weird. I can't help it.
