Yippee! I got a name, now if the person would give some more ideas..... I got a really short list of likes/dislikes. I guess the whole gift will be a "surprise", since even searching her posts was not real helpful either....
I am really excited about this year for some reason. Maybe it is because this swap is not a life changing event, and I have had quite a few of those this year. (Can it be someone else's turn for a while? Lol!) I have just made arrangements for the hole to be catered this year, so I guess I know where to wait......I am bringing homemade fudge, so I know I will be welcome!

First hint to figure out who my "Santee" is.- my "Santee" lives in a warmer climate than I do.

Also I like to knit , and have done a little crochet usually while watching tv. I like lots of types of books except I don't like horror, ones with vulgar language , and not much into romance novels. Do like mysteries, Jennifer Chiaverini's and such and I like learning about things and people.

My list of answers to the questions I have found so far....
favorite colors- pinks, greens, teals, purples
favorite fabric is always florals and blenders
I am highly allergic to lavender.
favorite goodies- dark chocolate with or without mint.
I like to make traditional quilts in non- traditional colors or styles
My favorite quilt patterns are Eleanor Burns since her instructions are easy for me to understand.
The only tools I do not have is individual templates for cutting accurately, or clover bias makers, a small iron, or a small cutting mat.
I have a medium size and a huge size dogs, and two cats.
I do not use binding clips, but I do use small "binder style" clips for hand sewing my binding on the back.
I do make projects with zippers.
i do like Christmas fabrics in the blue tones.
I do not have a Keurig, and do not want one.
the best hot drink on earth is dark chocolate with mint.
I don't like the feeling of lotions on my skin.
Biggest wish? - 2" EPP "hexies" for my GFG, but....

I hope this helps whomever got my name.

2. Worst color? No "worst," as I can work with anything.

3. Fabric type - Batik, solids, floral, Civil War, 30's, other? Most anything, especially small florals, 30's, blenders, but not particularly fond of batiks.

4. Quilting style - traditional, modern, scrappy? I'm more of traditional, getting to love scrappy, not so modern.

5. Pets? what kind & how many? I love dogs, but am currently without one.

6. Coffee or Tea? Love coffee, but have had to downgrade to decaf. Yuck!

Do you like Christmas fabrics? So-so since I don't do many Christmas projects.

Do you have a Keurig brewer? No.

Do you like/want magazines and/or books (sewing/quilting)? Only certain ones.

Do you like/want/need quilting rulers? (shapes/sizes)? I don't think I need any more.

Do you like hand lotion? a special brand/kind? I use Lubriderm, but it's not "special."
