This is my first swap with this group. I'm really looking forward to it. I make a lot of homemade stockings, so I'm sure there will be one in the package I send. Maybe I'll add some Kahlua fudge too.

2. Fabric type - Batik, solids, floral, Civil War, 30's, other? I love it all

3. Quilting style - traditional, modern, scrappy? Traditional and scrappy

4. Pets? what kind & how many? 3 horses, 2 dogs, 3 cats, 2 ducks and multiple chickens

5. Coffee or Tea? Tea. I despise coffee

6. Chocolate - love it or hate it? Love it

7. Do you prefer homemade gifts or store bought? Love it all

8. What's your favorite flower? Love them all

9. Your favorite snack? Chocolate

10. What's playing in your sewing area when your there? T.V., music, book? Nothing is playing, I just have the window

This is my first year doing SS. I have some things made to stuff in my box but will have to go shopping to find something special for my special name. Can hardly wait for those names to go out.

1. What's your favorite color? Worst color? Aqua/teal and red is what I'm loving right now. But really, I like all colors!

2. Fabric type - Batik, solids, floral, Civil War, 30's, other? All of the above.

3. Quilting style - traditional, modern, scrappy? traditional and scrappy. Some modern patterns I like too.

4. Pets? what kind & how many? None. They stir up my allergies

5. Coffee or Tea? Neither. I just do water.

6. Chocolate - love it or hate it? Chocolate is always good!

7. Do you prefer homemade gifts or store bought? I enjoy making things for others so I always enjoy handmade gifts. But it is the thought that counts!

8. What's your favorite flower? This is a hard one for me. I like them all. Not crazy about the smell of roses however.

9. Your favorite snack? Pretzel stuffed with peanut butter or triscuits with peanut butter. I bet those stuffed pretzels would be good dipped in chocolate!

10. What's playing in your sewing area when you're there? T.V., music, book? Country or oldies (70's era) Took me awhile to like country, so many of the songs have a sad theme, but I'm getting better a just not hearing them. Do they call that selective hearing? LOL

Scrapquilt, I love Murder She Wrote too! Around the holidays, Amazon has some amazing prices on DVD box sets. Last year I treated myself to MSW.

I am looking forward to this swap - this is the first year I have participated. his really sounds like a lot of fun. However, I am behind some of you who started collecting things really early!!

I assume our partners will be assigned via PM?

Here is what I sent in (sort of....)

Likes/Wants: I am really flexible and would like almost anything - one area of "stash" I don't have much of is batiks - I am really into I Spy fabrics - any scraps 5" or larger are appreciated.

Dislikes/Allergies:
Only dislikes are probably neon colors and drab colors. I love both modern fabrics and traditional pieces. Not much into small florals though. Love holiday fabrics.

Allergies -
very allergic to cats and cigarette smoke. I have asthma and both of these cause me to flare up.


Do you have pets?
Have a Mini Schnauzer who is rotten! These are hypo-allergenic dogs because they don't have dander. I also collect mini schnauzer ornaments.

Chocolate -
what's not to love??

Coffee or tea?
Don't drink coffee, and I am originally Texan so mainly drink iced tea.

I love handmade gifts, Christmas ornaments. Collect angel ornaments.
