Oh more fun!!! I figure every bit of info helps, right?

If you like chocolate, do you prefer white chocolate, milk chocolate, of dark chocolate?
Any chocolate is GOOD!!

What are your favorite fabric colors?

What are your favorite non-fabric colors?
Pink and grey, rust and purple, reds. Whites. I like color.

Would you enjoy receiving sewing notions, such as seam rippers, small rulers, etc.?
I lost my favorite ruler, 2.5"x6". I'm very sad. I've looked for one but they seem to be special and all the stores I've been in were out. (And I obtained two dozen RowByRow patterns....I miss that little ruler...) I like cute pins too. :D

Would you enjoy receiving quilt patterns or books? If so, give examples of what you don't already have.
I'd love a book with charm patterns or ooooo I'd love a Buggy Barn book. Why don't I have one of those?

Do you enjoy non-quilting books, such as fiction? If so, what type?
I've been reading quilter novels lately. They're fun.

What are your favorite non-fabric colors? Is there such a thing???? lol

Would you enjoy receiving sewing notions, such as seam rippers, small rulers, etc.? No, thanks anyway.

Would you enjoy receiving quilt patterns or books? No, thanks. Farmer's Wife (106), 50 Fabulous Stars (50), Dear Jane Stickle (123), & a bunch of others begging for attention from my shelf. A quilt can be made out of each block if need be, lotta blocks! I have been defined by my quilting group to be a purist, whatever that means.

Do you enjoy non-quilting books, such as fiction? If so, what type?
I love math & science books. Reading 50 Things You Should Know about the Universe, on a physics kick right now.

Would you enjoy receiving a regional T-shirt? If so, what size? ladies XL, Please, please, please no team insignias.

Would you enjoy receiving regional postcards or other souvenir items? Love to get regional deck of playing cards to take to Bible study, we play canasta after the lesson & not for $!

I hope this helps.

Anything that Santa wishes to send will delight me.

Do you do applique? Embroidery? Only when the pattern calls for it, but do not enjoy it much.

What do you do when you're not quilting?
I work part time. I like cooking (writing my 3rd cookbook), community service activities, fishing, reading, piloting & travel when time permits, & playing cello.


I hope this helps you Santa! Been an awfully good girl this year, maybe just awful, but working on it!
Hugs to you & the elves,
DJ

Okay, I'm gonna throw out some SS questions, hoping my SS-ee will also answer.

If you like chocolate, do you prefer white chocolate, milk chocolate, of dark chocolate?
Love all chocolate but prefer dark!

What are your favorite fabric colors?
My favorite color is blue! But I love all colors when I make my scrappy quilts!

What are your favorite non-fabric colors?
I guess I would go with blue again, but teal too.

Would you enjoy receiving sewing notions, such as seam rippers, small rulers, etc.?
Love all those little things! You never seem to be able to find them when you need one! Also I saw these cute little keychain template rulers somewhere that I thought I should have gotten and forgot.

Would you enjoy receiving quilt patterns or books? If so, give examples of what you don't already have.
I love receiving patterns! I have quite a few bag patterns already. Love love table centerpiece patterns. But I am not a big fan of doing applique. Maybe with some practice!

Do you enjoy non-quilting books, such as fiction? If so, what type?
Love reading actual books! I am a Nora Roberts fan, also Karen Kingsbury

Would you enjoy receiving a regional T-shirt? If so, what size?
This would be cool! In XL please. But actually anything from your region would be cool! Love getting ornaments from different places!!

Would you enjoy receiving regional postcards or other souvenir items? Souvenir items would be cool! Postcards I am never sure what to do with them after.

Would you enjoy receiving a pincushion or needle-case?
Would love either one!!

Would you enjoy receiving socks?
I would enjoy! Again something fun and different!

Please list any other items, you'd be happy to find in your SS package.
The only other thing I can think of to say is to please have fun picking things for me! No stress allowed! A few others have said this too, I have no issue at all with you pulling from what you have or what you make! I promise I will treasure it all!!!!

Hey, June! :) I'm not saying I am your Secret Santa and I'm not saying I am not your Secret Santa. Whether or not I am or am not (gotta be one or the other BWAHAHAHAHAHAAA), I'd really like for you to give a little more information about your likes and dislikes. Just call me nosy. :D Anyway, if you have a few minutes to spare, please answer the following questions. I'd be ever so grateful! :thumbup: Thanks bunches!

If you like chocolate, do you prefer white chocolate, milk chocolate, of dark chocolate?

juneayerza 10-06-2014 10:04 PM

Well Neesie, not saying you are, but for whoever my SS is here goes.

If you like chocolate, do you prefer white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate? Not suppose to have candy for usual reason, but this time of year a little milk chocolate nut fudge is snuck in once in awhile.


What are your favorite fabric colors? I had listed pastels since they work the best for paper piecing orchids. I am also always on the lookout for colors that would reflect the color of ocean water. I work on underwater scenes; a combination of quilting, appliqué, silk ribbon and regular embroidery.


What are your favorite non-fabric colors? Mostly neutrals so I can add the accent colors to make it different.


Would you enjoy receiving sewing notions, such as seam rippers, small rulers, etc.? I'm a gadget person and tend to get more of these kinds of things than I will ever use, so I don't need any more. However, cute zipper pulls and ocean related accents are always being sought out by me.

Would you enjoy receiving quilt patterns or books? If so, give examples of what you don't already have. I design my own patterns for quilts, but foundation paper piecing patterns of flowers would be appreciated.


Do you enjoy non-quilting books, such as fiction? If so, what type? I don't have a lot of time to read for pleasure and have a stack of books I probably will never get to.


Would you enjoy receiving a regional T-shirt? If so, what size? I travel all the time and have T-shirts up the wazoo.


Would you enjoy receiving regional postcards or other souvenir items? Same as above


Would you enjoy receiving a pincushion or needle-case? That would be lovely or a small pouch for little items when on the road.


Would you enjoy receiving socks? You are lucky to see me with shoes on when I'm home; otherwise it's those nang nylons.


Please list any other items; you'd be happy to find in your SS package: Elmer school glue pens, any SS made items.


Do you do appliqué? Embroidery? I do both by hand.


What do you do when you're not quilting? Grow orchids and travel.

Bottom line - I really truly would be happy with anything. I enjoy the fun of it all and seeing what a total stranger tries to figure out for another total stranger LOL

CookyIN 10-06-2014 10:53 PM

I think I gave my SS plenty of info, but just in case he or she would like to know more...

If you like chocolate, do you prefer white chocolate, milk chocolate, of dark chocolate?
Love dark chocolate

What are your favorite fabric colors?
Like all colors and will use anything.

Would you enjoy receiving sewing notions, such as seam rippers, small rulers, etc.?
Sure, notions are great

Would you enjoy receiving quilt patterns or books?
Love patterns, books, magazines and second-hand is fine; love both vintage and new.

Do you enjoy non-quilting books, such as fiction? If so, what type?
Enjoy cozy mysteries, but don't have any quilting-related. I read the first in a series of Amish quilt mysteries and enjoyed it very much. Can't remember the name but the lead character had inherited her aunt's quilt shop.

Would you enjoy receiving a regional T-shirt? If so, what size?
No but would love to receive a community cookbook from your area.

Would you enjoy receiving regional postcards or other souvenir items?
Postcards or a small item would be great; don't need another mug.

Would you enjoy receiving a pincushion or needle-case?
Anything made by my SS would be treasured.

Would you enjoy receiving socks?
No, have plenty already.

Please list any other items, you'd be happy to find in your SS package:
I'll be happy with whatever my SS wants to send. A copy of his/her favorite recipe would be a nice extra for me.

Do you do applique? Embroidery?
Not much embroidery right now; I've got a winter project planned that has lots of applique.


juneayerza 10-07-2014 12:15 AM

OH CookyIN's answer is great! Regional Cookbooks ROCK! Also, a family favorite recipe would be great.

JAGSD 10-07-2014 04:23 AM

I like any kind of chocolate!
Favorite fabric color: probably red, teal is a close 2nd.
Non-fabric color is definitely red.
Sewing notions? Never can have enough!
Pattens/books: unusual patterns. I like "something different". Books, longarm ones. I have Irena Blooms, Karen McTavish, Gina Perkes. One on my wish list is 501 quilt designs. Just haven't picked it up yet.
regular books. I'm not much of a reader anymore. But non-fiction
T-shirt: XL
Regional stuff: yes, love it!
Pincushion: a quilter never has enough of them! Needlecase, yes
socks: you bet! The funnier the better! They'd go great with my Dolphin slippers!
I'd be tickled to find anything hand made from my Santa. mug rug, candle mat, Christmas ornament. Something unusual!

Am having a hard time finding anything on my Santaee. They've been a member of the board for a long time, but hardly any posts. Gonna have to do some real searching this year! Hope they answer all these questions too.
