About Me

Hello! I'm a British female engineer and I'm curious about everything. I've also just gone back to university for my masters degree in railway engineering, so I'm going to be busy :)

I really enjoy post and getting home to find something exciting or pretty waiting for me! It can make a bad day so much better to receive a lovely letter or gift.

I love travelling to new places, I have a long list of places I'd like to go - some local places for days out and some places I might never see, but I can dream :)

I really enjoy creating things and making things look pretty. My current projects are dressmaking, quilting, and watercolour painting.

I also love just watching beautiful views, sunsets, the stars, and getting to the middle of nowhere and just stopping to be alive :) I like to go out hill walking to see the views.

A few more specific things I like include: typography/ quotes, tarot, sewing, reading, Studio Ghibli, maps, art and museums.

I'd love to swap foreign sewing or quilting magazines, if anyone would like to trade :)

✉ I appreciate nice stamps but I'm not a collector.

Sewing and quilting

✂ I really like rich coloured fabrics, geometric patterns and bright floral prints. I love Japanese fabrics! Please nothing too primary coloured or childish/ cartoons.

✂ Colours I particularly like are greens, blues and purples.

✂ I do a variety of sewing and quilting projects so any fabrics, haberdashery items and sewing supplies are welcome. Sewing patterns in size UK 16/ EU48/ US12 :)

✂ I'd love to receive sewing magazines, patterns or articles in any language!

✂ I learnt to make clothes for my toys when I was little, and I still make some things for me, but I'm struggling to find enough time at the moment...

✂ I've been quilting for a couple of years now. I like modern quilts and I don't have the patience for anything too fiddly! Currently enjoying FPP to make interesting blocks :)

Sewn or handcrafted items I'd love to receive include: ✂ Bags, zip pouches, storage containers, ✂ Quilt blocks and mini quilts, ✂ Decorations, bunting, ✂ Cushion covers or pillowcases

Drink and food

☠ Please don't send me anything containing cashew nuts ☠

✿ I don't drink tea or coffee - but I've been getting into cold brewed tea bags for water bottles. Please save your nice drinks for people who will enjoy them more :) (unless the swap requires it) Thank you

✿ If you want to send food (or the swap requires it), I particularly like sweets, good quality chocolate and marzipan.

Thank you for your consideration :)

❈ Anything scrapbooking/ card making/ paper crafts/ mail art etc. - E.g. stamped images, bits of card, paper decoration/ ephemera, napkins etc.

❈ Anything containing cashew nuts

❈ Cartoon patterned or children's items, including Disney, Minions etc.

❈ Diaries- I always end up with more than I can use!

❈ I don't celebrate Halloween, I'd prefer not to receive anything Halloween themed.

❈ Medical looking items e.g. novelty needle shaped items/ gory items or images / horror themed items

❈ Earrings - I don't have pierced ears

❈ Hair decorations

❈ Adult colouring items

❈ I don't much like food pictures/ patterns

Thank you!

Thanks for reading my profile :) I'm excited to receive your swap!

I don't mind if you have to send late, I understand that life happens and swapping is meant to be fun not stressful, please just let me know :)

Lets hope we can all travel again in the near future. Melbourne, Australia is starting their second week of lockdown, regional Victoria is a less restrictive.
