Doll Quilt Swap #4

It's official, I'm in!! I've joined my first ever internet blog swap of any kind, The Doll Quilt Swap #4. And I'm up for making a doll sized quilt and sending it off to a person I've never met! Kind of a whacky idea, if you put it that way but if you think about it, it reminds me of the days when people had pen pals and you corresponded without even having met the person. Well, I feel this is the same but you also get to lovingly craft a small sized quilt based on things they like. Aww, shucks, that was a warm and fuzzy moment!

So I thought it would be good to post some details about my likes and dislikes, as there apparently is a person out there who might be interested..... here goes!

Current favourite things/obsessions.....
  • Vintage style circa 1950's and early 1960's
  • Kitchenalia
  • Steiner and Waldorf dolls
  • Aprons
  • Michael Miller and Alexander Henry children's print fabrics
  • Cath Kidston prints
  • Raspberry spiked chocolate brownies (just thought I'd throw that one in, don't know how it relates to quilting... LOL) and Pepsi Max
  • Sunshine
  • Little Golden Books, the older the better
  • Rand McNally Junior Elf Books
  • Cotton fabric is my favourite material in the entire world; and
  • Op shopping and garage sale hunting where I search for vintage aprons, Little Golden Books, vintage embroidered pillow cases and vintage patterns
I guess that is a good round up of my current interests and passions. I'm a fair newcomer to Flickr and blogging so I've been madly adding favourite photos of other people to my faves in Flickr. I'll post again with some more ideas. And here's a little list of the things I really don't like:

  • Orange, the colour nor the artificial flavour
  • Cartoony prints and things
  • Cutesy, modern Disney, commercial style advertising aimed at young kiddies
  • Wasting anything that could be reused/recycled/reloved
That's enough about me, me, me!! I'll leave you with a photo of my favourite four legged person, Ella.
