Confidential to the Swapper Who Has My Name in the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap

Dear Swapper with My Name:

I’ve never quite learned how to make mosaics (I’ve done them with picasa, but not the sort that link back to where the photos come from), so… no mosaic from me in the Flickr community. I’ve been trying to be more diligent about adding things to my favourites that I like (but I really only had one burst of that thought before forgetting about it again).

That said, I’m pretty easy when it comes to things I like. I love funny or quirky things (see: most of the embroidery in my favourites list) but have ZERO expectation of getting anything like that from a swap – so time-consuming! Maybe the idea translates to some of the quirkier fabrics out there, like balloon animals or weird coloured dachshund prints (both of which are things I have, just saying…). I’m a great big fan of Doctor Who (esp. the 9th and 10th doctors – David Tennant *swoon*) and love references to the show. I often like unusual colour combinations. I don’t love neon or pink, but I could go either way with something bright and bold or soft and subdued. I like blending linen or “natural” looking fabrics with cottons. All print or all solid or some combination of both. I love flowers, but don’t love floral. There are no children in my life, but I kind of dig Sarah Jane fabrics and Aneela Hooey and older Heather Ross stuff, but in small doses.

Did I mention I’m easy? Really, I’ll probably like whatever you make me because… holy crap, someone made something for me! And that’s pretty amazing. I know it can be hard when you’re dealing with someone as wishy-washy as me. Just think of a thought, take a deep breath, and make it whether you’re certain it’ll appeal to me or not, it really and truly probably will.
