Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I am married with two stepsons (both have left home) and one elderly tortoiseshell cat. My favourite things to do are drawing, painting, and printmaking, sewing, knitting, and embroidery. And talking to the cat Smiley

I'm interested in traditional and technical embroidery stuff. I'd like to chat with any other craftsters who are into ecclesiastical or historical embroidery (stumpwork, goldwork, or nue, etc.)

Like most craftsters, I'm a friendly person; feel free to PM me if you want to chat about embroidery, a craft project, or a swap.

If you have received something from me in a swap, and it's not to your taste, or you don't need it any more, I won't be at all offended if you re-gift, re-swap, re-make, or re-cycle it. (If you give it away though, I'd be happy if you mentioned I made it!)

My Favorite Crafts To Do: embroidery (stumpwork, freeform), sewing, drawing, painting, printmaking, knitting
Crafts I Want To Learn: If I start another craft I think hubby's head will explode! (I'd love to try pottery though ...)

My Favorite Projects Made by Me:
12 projects can be listed here
My Favorite Projects Made by Other People:
12 projects can be listed here

Current and/or All Time Favorite Bands: Leonard Cohen, Bjork, Nick Cave, Flaming Lips, ELO, Pink Floyd, lots of others
Current and/or All Time Favorite Books: The book of Job, any Jane Austen, any Borges, Silence (Endo). I mainly read nonfiction at the moment. Since there's no slot for my favourite artists, I'll put them here! da Vinci, Rothko, Lucian Freud, Jenny Saville, Chagall, van Gogh, Durer, Artemisia Gentileschi, Goya, Hokusai, Hockney, Picasso, Ingres, Rublev, and many more ...
Current and/or All Time Favorite Movies: Coen brothers films, 12 Monkeys, LOTR, Brazil, Bladerunner, Princess Bride, film festival type stuff. And I really enjoyed Godzilla.
Current and/or All Time Favorite TV Shows: Rev, Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Trek, Black Books, Flight of the Conchords, 30 Rock

Personal Swap Availability:
Interested in Doing Personal Swaps: not interested at this time

What I Could Make For You:
I do like the IYP swap though. I make: small embroidered things, wall art, sewn items, knitting - see my favourite projects to get an idea of what I do

What I'd Like to Receive:
small, useful and unique handmade things, hand knitted things, handmade books. Also some supplies which are expensive/hard to get where I live: real embroidery silk (esp. au ver a soie, soie d'alger, but any silk is good), Noro yarn, nice fabric (linen, FQs). Some things which are currently on my wishlist are placemats, napkins, things to help me be more organised, stationery.
Likes And Dislikes For Potential Swap Partners Or Just For Fun:
Things I Love:
frogs, fish, daleks, green/blue/teal, natural linen, silver, robots, cats, geometric designs, Arts and Crafts, recycling, animals (I'm vegetarian), Ancient Near Eastern stuff, languages, handwritten letters, drawing, foxes, British robins, printmaking (linocuts, etching, etc.)

Dislikes, Pet Peeves, Allergies, etc:
Not keen on very girly, fussy designs, or skulls. Not really into poppets, dolls, stuffies, amis, etc. unless it's one of the things I really love (e.g. Spock, dalek, robot, fox, etc. see above). I would prefer not to receive gothic/horror or wiccan/pagan themed items (please don't take this personally, just not my cup of tea for swap items). I live far away from most craftsters, so have to limit number and size of swaps.
Organized Swaps Involvement:
number of successfully completed swaps = 48
number of swaps currently in progress = 2
number of unsuccessful swaps = 0
