Are you willing to send to another country?

Now that we've got that handled... you have to have the usual to be in the swap 15 posts all that jazz...  and because we are so addled with the ponderous weight of our many years on the planet, this swap will be somewhat glacial in it's progress...

Poo!  Signups are ending too early for me to finish my first swap and then sign up for this one.  This old fart is going to have to sit this one out I'm afraid.  I can only hope for a round 2.

Woo-Hoo, I'm in so I'll answer the rest of the questions.  I hope that's how we're suppose to do this thang.

What do you like to craft? In the past I've done mosaic stained glass, ceramics, stenciled Tee-shirts, was an ordanied Pothead (garden type of course), trash to treasures.  Never in my life did I ever expect to learn to sew, especially this late.  I've been sewing for about 2.5 years and I'm so obsessed with Primitives that I've opened a website, started doing Craft shows and I sell a ton via consignment shop. My mistake I've even delveloped my own line of dolls called Grand Dames. I'll be featured in a magazine in October. You can see what I'm alllll about if you want to go to www.allaboutprim.co m.

What is your fondest memory of 1976? My son was born and adopted.  I bought a pair of awesome clogged tennis shoes, which I still have, lol.

What about 1983? Was a blurr.  Lots of drugs and alcohol.

What about 1969? At age 12 I got my first job as a carhop at an A&W Rootbeer stand.  I still have my car-tray somewhere.

What about 1999? Celebrated 16 years of being clean and sober, hoorah!

Who was your favorite Beatle? RINGO cuz I dig his beat.

What was your favorite saturday morning tv show as a kid? Davey and Goliath (I just bought their lunchbox on Ebay)

What kind of crafty thing would you like? I can use anything to do with sewing.  Needles, white/black/brown thread, ball headed pins, measuring tapes/seam rippers (I can't keep up with them) DARK fabrics or small plaids, WOOL cuz I rarely find it here (old wool clothing is fine), unbleached muslin

What would you NOT like? Anything frilly.  I do own some frilly fabrics for my new line of dolls but I don't need anymore.

What colors do you like? browns, blacks, tans, mustard yellow, orange, navy blue

IS there anything your partner needs to know? YOu have an allergy to wool, cats, polyester, etc. You're a vegan and leather makes you feel really icky...etc.  I'm only allergic to floral scents and I'm diabetic

what size do you wear in a tshirt? 2-3 X  (yup, I be fat)

Wists? haven't figured that out yet.

Other tools for stalking? see above
