Hello there !!
Im Tammy. Im 40 and im married to a great man and mom to three handsome boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We purchased our first home and are thrilled!! I like to sew, quilt. I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit. Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well. I am allergic to nickel.
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!
pair of black leg warmers (for hubby) or/and a red pair for me!! (one pair at a time is fine!!)
Mediums (more can be found in my list Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Aprons!! Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!! I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old) Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say Grin)
~~My MIL is a bingo fanatic!!! A bingo bag or a nice seat cushion would be great for a gift.
~~Hand warmers Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse. Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule (have received but more are always welcome here!!)
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!! Size 7 feet Or a pair of socks with eyelet lace sewn around the cuffs (remember to stretch the sock a bit or it wont fit Grin)
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!! Chocolate brown, red.
~~ Anything that can help me decorate my Victorian inspired sewing room
~~ Would love a first aid kit that I can keep in my car. Can be of any medium just as long as its a bit "fun" to look at and have. After all first aid is bad enough!! Something really creative (thats why i asking. I cant think of anything lol)
Im also looking for a sign that says "Please no solicitors or religious groups" I have people of one kind or another knocking at my door constantly and it makes me rather uncomfortable.
KNITTED AND CROCHETED
I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/
Im not picky about color. Would be just happy to even have one.
**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho. This is basically what it is) Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg
and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm
Measurements will be provided. Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards. I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects. (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern. OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)
Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)
Victorian caplet. At least waist length please email for length.
Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed. Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.
I would love some handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!! (received more is welcomed)
Victorian slippers. This pattern is from 1864http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html
Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband. He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist. I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath. Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye). Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!! Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own. Plain Pre-made soap bars (cold press i think they are called) that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house. <USA only> Sad
Room sprays, bubble baths (im looking for some really good foamy bubbles!!).
Bath bombs. Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well
. Im good for now!! Thanks!!
Im looking for some scented oils. I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room. Asian or Victorian influence a real plus. Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)
Im also looking for a picture frame. about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides. What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it. An old vintage frame would be preferred for this. Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.
Shower curtain. Victorian style please!! Please contact for colors.
My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic
