I tend to stitch a lot of fall and winter themed items, and would be happy to see some springy things come from the exchanges.
DISLIKES: anything too twee (Margaret Sherry). If it requires a lot of detailed backstitching to make the design pop, then I'm not interested. (Backstitching for lettering or vining is fine.)
USES: ornaments, biscournus, maybe a pinkeep. Definitely not a large quilt.

DISLIKES: Anything of a religious nature. I also don't like holiday themed designs (except for July 4th).
USES: I would like to use the squares to make scissor fobs (I collect embroidery scissors) needlebooks and pin cushions. I am also a quilter so perhaps, I may save them all to make up into a quilt.
BLOG: none at this time.
