I live in corn country (Illinois) and work as a administration assistant for an University. This May I received my Bachelor of General Studies degree after many years out of school.
I am divorced after 19 years of marriage and am trying to socialize a bit more and get back into my crafting.
I haven't been on swap-bot for awhile and have just finished a Christmas Card Swap. I am looking forward to get back into swapping getting to know more people.
I like most types of music but classical and rock opera (like Queen and Trans Siberian Orchestra) the best.
I also have a wide interest in books. My favorite ones are sci-fi and fantasy but also love mysteries and "who done its". I have a growing collection of recipe books and craft books.
Ahhh, where to begin. Currently my favorite craft is quilting and cross Stitch. I have learned how to do fabric post cards this year as well as some new blocks. I try a hand or two at scrapbooking but mostly use the stamps and stuff for scrapbooking in my quilting or cards.
I love to learn new methods of all of the above crafts as well as new ones.
My wish list pretty much stays the same. I am always looking for embroidery floss since I do cross stitch.
Cross stitch patterns (either counted cross stitch or stamped)
anything in blue
any fabric with metallic thread in it
flavored honey (normally the kind you get in the stores is clover honey - any besides that).
