LIKES: Band samplers (Victoria Sampler, Just Nan, Sweetheart Tree), alphabet samplers (Sue Hillis), little motif designs (JBW designs, Quakers), Bent Creek, the Trilogy, and anything geometric.
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.
