I was just sitting at my computer thinking (recovering actually from a day at the lake with all DH's family) about the Secret Santa Christmas swap I signed up for this year. My partner is a new to me blogger and I am trying to decide what I should make/buy for her. I am very excited to be a part of this swap. This got me thinking about who might have me and how it might be a good idea for me to talk a little bit about some things I like (and maybe some I don't like so much too).
My favorite colors are blues and greens especially in the aqua or teal family. I like bright cheerful things. I love animals especially cats. I love water and all water related things. I am a HUGE fan of all thinks Celtic (my heritage) and love everything related to king Arthur. I love quilts, bags, pincushions, needlecases, notecards (oh heck who doesn't love all that!) I do some embroidery, although I am not very good at it yet! I love Halloween and Christmas. Anyone that knows me knows I am pretty lively and cheerful.
I hope this is somewhat helpful for my SS!! I think anyone in the swap should put up what they like too, c'mon you know you want to join in!!
Just a quick note to you all. I don't know how much quilting I will be doing for awhile. I was out in the back yard with the dog and she was running and her rope caught me and brought me crashing down in the yard (I'm fine from that) but the rope was wrapped around my arm and I have a HUGE rope burn across the inside of my arm right where it bends. I feel so silly but it hurts like crazy. It is difficult to bend it with out a lot of pain tonight. I put some Neosporin (with pain control) on it and took some Ibuprophin but it is pretty swollen and sore. I can't leave it uncovered as it burns like crazy then. Any suggestions to make it feel better? I will listen to all suggestions. Then to add insult to injury DH made steak for dinner (it was so good) and I was going to clean the kitchen but he needed help with the boat so I went outside to help with that. Well, when I opened the door the dog slunk away and that means only one thing, she put her big dog choppers all over my leftover steak and ate it ALL!!! No leftovers for us. She knows she is not supposed to do that but she does it anyway. I was so mad.
Anyone want a dog??
