Ok...see here's my problem - and i know is probably making my SS frown....but i answer YES to all of the above - except Tshirt size - which would be XL.
Really - except for being allergic to wool and perfumes - there's just not a whole lot i DON'T like - except lima beans - and i figured chances were really slim that those would be in my box. It's not that i don't "care".....i just don't dislike much. Not helpful right??? Sorry!! :o

Guess I should also answer the questions. :D

If you like chocolate, do you prefer white chocolate, milk chocolate, of dark chocolate?
I love very dark chocolate.

What are your favorite fabric colors?
Greens, blues, dark reds, earth tones, old-fashion soft (floral-type) colors

What are your favorite non-fabric colors?
Earth tones

Would you enjoy receiving sewing notions, such as seam rippers, small rulers, etc.?
I have lots of notions but can always use an extra seam ripper or small ruler, as I sometimes carry projects around with me.

Would you enjoy receiving quilt patterns or books? If so, give examples of what you don't already have.
I have one Eleanor Burns book (Victory Quilts) and would love to have any of her others. Used books are fine, as long as they don't smell like cigarette smoke (the residue gives me terrible sinus headaches).

Do you enjoy non-quilting books, such as fiction? If so, what type?
I've always been an avid reader. Would love to receive any of the quilting fiction books, I keep seeing mentioned. Again, used books are fine. I also welcome any books on the Hatfields/McCoys.

Would you enjoy receiving a regional T-shirt? If so, what size?
I love T-shirts! Since sizes seem to vary, a size L is usually safe.

Would you enjoy receiving regional postcards or other souvenir items?
A mug would be nice, if it can be protected from breaking.

Would you enjoy receiving a pincushion or needle-case?
I love any hand-made stuff like this!

Would you enjoy receiving socks?
I love crazy or unusual socks.

Please list any other items, you'd be happy to find in your SS package:
Anything handmade!

Do you do applique? Embroidery?
Yes and Yes but already have many supplies for each.

What do you do when you're not quilting?
I'm getting back into genealogy, after a long break. Am currently re-scanning a bunch of old photos (from my mom), for archival purposes. Scanning bunches of photos at 2400 dpi, is taking a lot longer than I expected. On my mom's side, I'm distantly related to the McCoy family (of Hatfields/McCoys), so have been looking more into that line.


Please copy & paste. Add your own answers and any other questions you think would be helpful.

I got my name and now I wonder....what to get....what will my SS really enjoy??? Did some snooping and find not much information about my SS. Since this is my first year I have only one thing in my box so far....yikes!!! I did get a very little hint in my snooping so I will go with that at first. Hopefully he/she will give some hints before I run out of time. Anyway, this is fun and I can't wait to see what all I SEND !!!!!!!! lol..... Now back to the hole for some brainstorming (or something!!!).
