I grew up in a family that made and fixed everything. So, I was taught to sew as a young girl and by HS I was making all of my own clothes. I also learned to embroider, crochet and knit. I love fabric and will always sew in some form or other. Right now I'm exploring quilting. My non-sewing hobbies include painting, paper crafts, fimo sculpting, jewelry making, fly tying, photography, and cooking. I'm a dabbler in many things and an expert at none!
Classical, opera, Motown, hip hop, oldies but goodies.
I'm one of those people that has the TV running all of the time. I'm not sitting and watching, I'm just used to the background noise. When I do sit and watch it is usually a BBC show. I've gotten hooked on a couple of reality TV shows. I record them and then watch after hubby has gone to bed! It's my secret indulgence. I like Judge Judy (and other judge shows) and when asked why I watch them, I say that I'm studying for the bar exam!
Like many of you, I love thrift stores, garage sales and estate sales. I purchase things I don't need just because it was a good find!
For exercise I like to walk and have recently purchased a new bicycle. I've always liked the idea of yoga but just can't get into it.
I like anything vintage: Children's picture books, recipe cards, pens, photographs, sewing notions, seed packets, magazines, music pages, etc.
Any ephemera for ATC. Surprise me!
Lisa Frank items. Stuff from the Dollar Store - I can buy those items myself. In general, swap items that do not have any thought put into them.
I will be thrilled with any pattern you choose to make. I'm also open to any fabric colors and patterns you pick. I'm working on a FW quilt and am using red and pale aqua. I'm easy to please as long as you put care and effort into what you make. If you wish to leave it "unfinished", I will include it in the quilt I am making.
