About Me

I am wanting to do a few one on one swaps for American quarters! $.25 To complete my coin book collection that I started in 1999 when the state coins started coming out! I don't want just any quarter - will need to be in good condition!

I need:

2004 Florida - Philadelphia mint

2004 Texas - Philadelphia mint

2005 California - Philadelphia mint

2006 Nevada - Philadelphia mint

2006 Colorado - Philadelphia mint

2007 Washington - Philadelphia mint

2007 Utah - Philadelphia mint

2008 Oklahoma - Philadelphia mint

2008 Arizona - Philadelphia mint

2008 Hawaii - Philadelphia mint

What I have that I'm willing to swap - Fabric fat quarters - 1 for 1, lace, ribbon, decorative buttons, card, post cards, paper, stickers, washi tape, adult colouring pages, sewing patterns, quilt blocks.

Please let me know if you are interested and what quarter you have and what you would like and I'll set up the swap!

I love sewing! So if you are interested in swapping quilt blocks or anything to do with sewing just let me know! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

February 2016: My partner received the all clear from his cancer treatments and although the treatments have had a big change on him, he is doing very well!

September 2015: And just when I thought I was ready to get back into everything my partner of 14 years has been diagnosed with cancer! Hopefully next year is a better year and I will get back to swapping!


Happy Swapping to everyone!

Update: August 2015

I finally took a trip "home" I got to meet my 2 beautiful grandchildren and lay flowers on my granddaughter Harper's grave. I wish I had had the chance to meet her. I am expecting another granddaughter in October and should be busy making her a quilt but I have been a bit lost for what I want to do. I took a long break from swap bot as the shipping costs were just getting to be too much. Now I see all these swap that are based in the USA only and that makes me a little sad.

I plan to create some swaps once I get my sewing room reorganized!

Hello All!

I love sewing! I do mostly quilting but love craft sewing as well as mending or restyling clothing. I am mostly interested in fabric swaps but will try anything once! I think the swap-bot concept is a very innovative idea and I look forward to being a active member! I am American and have been living in Australia for 5 years. I have 3 kids and am Ami (grandma) of 2. Cheers!

So I was told I need to add a bit more to my profile i.e. likes & dislikes - I am a very easy going type person and believe it or not i am having a hard time figuring out what I don't like. I am a very busy person and fill my time with things that bring me joy. I have collected a few post cards - but don't want to be in a post card swap right now. I buy lots of Christmas cards and don't seem to get around to sending them - so I could be tempted into a Christmas card swap. I like cards that are for every day - just to say hey - I love you - I miss you - You're Great etc. But Mostly I would be interested in Fabric swaps Mostly cottons. I have a large collection that I have gathered for an I-Spy Quilt but would like to swap some around to also make the grands each one uniquely. I am not a huge computer person so I am out of the loop with a lot of the lingo, but I do enjoy doing email swaps. Would be interesting to do a clothing swap one item for one item and doesn't have to be new just in GOOD wearable condition! Another one I'd like to do is swaping Quilt/Sewing Patterns! I LOVE all colors and all shades. Hope this helps - if you have anymore suggestions please message me.

Comment: Loved all the colors. So sorry we had to spend that much money sending to each other. It is getting terrible what they are doing to us that is for sure. I had done the swap once before but never across seas, maybe that is why it didn't cost as much. Thanks for swapping though. Robin

APDG ~ Holiday &Seas.Food Series #1~Grilling Foods

One of my favorite things I like grilled – Delmonico Steak

This is the type of grill I have. Really easy for clean up

This is the grill I would love to have – if I win the lottery – or if one of you would like to send it along in a swap! LOL

The item I like grilled the best
