About Me

badge ![] The war is over for now. I hope this time it will last but being a realist, I know it won't but we will enjoy it whilst its quiet. I managed to get all my swaps out in time nonetheless and your thoughts and prayers were just wonderful. Thank you

Please note, please only send me the swap, dont include any extras unless they are on my wishlist, I am thinking about the environment and also the amount of storage in my house! I will rate according to the effort and thought put into the swap so hearts are still being dished out! I will also not include extras when I post out swaps (unless I have something in mind I know you really would love to receive) and would really appreciate if you could rate my swaps in the same way

I am 52, married and live in Israel, I have a 28 year old daughter and a 26 year old son and Hannah who is eleven! Love animals and my aquariums and paint, stitch, knit quite often all on the same day!

Anything connected with Judaism is always very well received, I love it and if you want something from Israel (whether Christian or Judaica) just shout, I will be delighted to oblige if I can!

I always aim for a heart and a WOW! not because I am bothered about hearts but I love the thought of making someone somewhere in the World happy even if its just for a minute ...


Some stitching

Favorite Music

Everything, right now its Rihanna and Amy Winehouse but always like Bryan Adams, James Blunt everything including Phantom of the Opera!

Favorite Movies

Thats easy - Love Actually, all the Harry Potters and Lord of the Rings and ... Phantom of the Opera. I love films and we have a plasma so we really get the benefit of them! Right now Hannah and I are loving the Vampire Diaries ....

Favorite Television

There are a couple of things, mainly CSI New York, House MD and some reality. Love Most Haunted but only got really old episodes

Favorite Crafts

OK - oil painting, knitting, hardanger, cross-stitch, painting murals and have tried just about everything else ... I walk for sport when its not July and August and we swim a lot

Oil painting


I love blues and purples. Anything to do with being a (gulp) grandmother, anything crafty is always loved.


  • No plastic beads, I dont use them and I dont like the feel of them, weird huh?
  • No single buttons, I use them for biscournus and baby jumpers but dont see the use in single ones
  • Not keen on pink green or orange but everything in moderation is fine!
  • No ATC supplies except those see-thru slips and of course, pages for the folder to put them in! Those I would love!
  • Funny but I am with those against the clowns, spooky things, and I cant stand liquorice!
  • We are kosher, so please bear that in mind when sending food, especially pork scratchings! :-D


  • Jewish material as in cotton print, yes I know I of all people should be able to get it but I can't, they dont sell it in ISRAEL!!!
  • Anything to do with Hannukah my fave festival!

EmilyT rated for Bookmark choice - hand sewn on Feb 24, 2015
Comment: The street scene is lovely! That has always been one of my favorite types off cross-stitches, a row of little houses and/or other little town buildings. I like how you finished the bookmark, too! Thanks also for the lovely extras. I love the threads you sent, it is so thoughtful of you to send more to me! Thanks for the other crafting goodies, too. Thanks so much for the bright and cherry swap!

Celticmoon rated for Blind Pattern Exchange on Dec 3, 2014
Comment: I love all my patterns. I have another of the rocking horses (they are now both on my list to do) lol. if you find the fall pattern please send me a copy or I'll try to get it my self. You sent me 2 copies of summer, did you mean to keep one for yourself? I can send it back. I will be doing one of the flowers this winter, it will look great with my new quilt. Thanks again for the great patterns.
Response: No that was the working copy, you can dump it! I have ruined so many charts over the years working from the originals, I try and use a working copy now. I don't have Autumn but there is another one here somewhere, I will try and find it. Thank you for the heart and hope you love your patterns!
