OH OH can I be the first to sign up for this????? I love swaps.......

Do we have to put up a list of likes/dislikes etc so people know or to give ideas as to what to make for us??????????? Or is it just whatever??????

So excited!!!!!

Ok thought I had better come back and put in some likes/dislikes.....
Firstly I am not too fussy so will be happy with what ever I get...........
I don't mind if it is christmassy or not but would prefer something that I could use and have on display all year round.....Only cause I think it will be a waste of someones time to make something Christmassy and then I only use it for a week or two and then store away....But if the person wants to make something for Christmas that is fine as it is a Christmas Swap LOL!!!!!!!

I am not fussy on colours, I have two boys so I am always making things in boy colours so something different would be lovely, I am just not a bright/fluro type person.....I do go for red, pink, purple, gold more though.........

The person sewing for me can always check out my blog and see what I am into.............

EDITED AGAIN TO ADD- I have been meaning to make myself a camera case for my Cannon G9 and also a case for my iphone to help protect it a bit more.......Just a thought though as it has been on  my to do list but never gets done LOL!!!!!!

Adds- open to anything really, big Christmas decorator fans here. Not so much into Winter Wonderland type themes but the occasional snowflake / snowman is ok.

Count me in!

Dislike traditional Christmas themes love more modern and funky colours and themes. Also no Christian scenery type things like nativity etc.
Modern bright fresh colours too not the dark greens and reds of old.

Sounds Great!

I will edit in my likes/dislikes when I have put a bit of thought into it original.gif

I would love something Christmas related.  I love Christmas!! I do however already have 2 patchwork Santa Sacks and an Advent Calendar.  

I don't care what is made ie: table wear, kitchen wear, decorations, something for DD/DS etc or what theme/colours.  I have a bit of everything so it will fit in original.gif

Oh goody - I join in on sewing threads - so I qualify.  Yay!!!

Likes/dislikes: I just love Christmas full stop.  Probably a little on the traditional side of reds and greens, but a little quirky is good.  My Christmas decorating theme is angels of all sorts - I like to add one to my collection each year.

ETA - If its not a Christmas theme, then my general likes are for pretty girlie things in fresh (bright but not super bright) colours and I LOVE paisley!

So it wouldn't have to be something "Christmassy" as such - a gift is OK?  I'm just pondering what I could do - would love to hear more suggestions.

#13 ~Faye~

Posted 16 October 2009 - 10:52 PM

I probley won't do something Christmassy as such as it can only be used a few weeks and then gets put away so I will probley do something gifty that the person can use all year round??????  I think wouldn't have a clue yet thought till I get my partner and stalk there blog LOL!!!!!!

Could I please be in aswell?

Likes- Colours Red & Gold
Dislikes- None really I'm fairly easy. Although i've mentioned the above i'm happy with any christmas colours.

I am happy with whatever is made I am always just happy to receive something handmade.
edited to say that I also love the colours pink & ruby red if the item is something an all round gift.
