I claim purpleone for ... Big fat wish - a kimono style top (sewn, knit or crocheted like http://www.wists.com/purplewist/c582fd0e81b5132dfc83b8d92377d130?offset=20).

I'm in Canada and this is my first claim this round.  BRB with a list...  List!

Crafted Goodness

* Wind chimes - something silvery or blue or both and tinkly (as opposed to loud and clanky).
* BIG WISH!  14 inch pillow covers - black and white fabrics please, two (they don't have to match) if you're feeling ambitious.
* Chequebook cover - something brightly coloured I can easily find in the bottom of my bag.
* Hook roll or zippered pouch for all my tiny thread hooks. -- thanks heini
* Needlebook.  I can't believe I don't have one. -- thanks !b
* Sewing machine cover - something funky.  PM me for dimensions.
* Project journal - like a swap journal but for stuff I keep and/or give away to people in person and not just on the internets. 
* A 2008 calendar - preferably crafted but bought or whatever would also work.  I haven't known the date in two years, it's time to rejoin reality.

Stuff To Craft With

* Embroidery floss, hooks, things to embroider on.  I have a billion patterns.  What to do with them, I do not yet know.
* Soy wax.  I can't seem to find any here and it would cost a million dollars to have it shipped here.
* Knitting needles, secondhand is fine, I have only a few. -- it's amazing what you can find when you move. 
* White cotton yarn (ala Sugar n Cream or Peaches n Cream or whathaveyou).  I need about 4 balls please.
* Fabric markers - any colours.
* Wrecked or unwanted CDs or DVDs for the imaginary light sculpture in my head. -- thanks fishie but it's a really big imaginary light sculpture so more would be good. 
* Piano sheet music.  Any style, any level.
* Crochet afghan patterns.  I have an addiction.

Random Stuff

* Recipes for your favourite sweet things.  No cake mix or processed crap please, I'm a baking snob.   
* Polymer clay and directions how to use it, particularly for crochet hook handles. 
* I collect "mystery" books for boys and girls written between 1890 and 1990, hardcover.  I have all the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys but there are tons of other series.  Basically if you can find it here  http://special.lib.umn.edu/clrc/girlsseriesbook.html#S, I want it.  Smiley  I also collect Sweet Dreams Romances, they're on the list too.  Oh that's embarassing to admit. 

* My very new wist www.wists.com/sunspotted

About Me

I don't have many posts, so this will be on the longish side for better swap stalking possibilities.

Hi, Im Allison, a 30-whatever year this is (7??) year old hermit from the wilds of Ontario.  Seriously, I have more deer and bears visit than people, and Im okay with that.  I have two large dogs and three cats that think they are dogs.  These days my primary craft is crochet, though in winter I get the kiln going (sometimes just for extra heat) and play with ceramics.  Ive been known to make a quilt.  I dabble in stained glass and mosaic.  Knit badly, sew badly, embroider in theory.  My woodworking shop is bigger than my house, but Ive gotten away from that lately.  Speaking of that house, Im building a new one and its driving me crazy.    I have trouble remember to take pictures of FOs, but  I finally have a digital camera, its around here somewhere.  I have the attention span of a gnat. 

I love nature and animals (except when theyre eating my garden or ripping open the garbage bin), music and books.  I love the idea of babies (which is why Im a fantastic baby shower guest) but would sooner chew off my own arm than have one.  I dont have a favourite colour, though I do believe that yellow is best used sparingly and bright turquoise is a tool of the devil.  I refuse to acknowledge the existence of neons.  I hate to wear socks but would like to learn to knit them.  Im allergic to most metal and dont wear jewelry.  I don't have a sweet tooth but I'm addicted to coffee and potato chips.  I never use a sentence when I can use an entire paragraph.  Also, Im only marginally computer literate but Im working on it. 

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me.  Somebody slap me upside the head if I stall.
