Favorite Color Swap

I got my swap pal's name today but I can't eMail her because Google Mail is down. Hope it comes back soon; I sure don't want her to think I'm a slacker.

So we are to fill out these questionnaires. I love to read everyone else's answers but I always feel kind of silly filling one out.

If MY pal is reading this, trust me...I'll love anything that comes in the mail. I do so love surprises.

Favorite Color Swap Questionnaire

1. What are your top three favorite colors?

Can I have groups? I usually gravitate towards autumn colors but lately I'm on this pink/orange/yellow kick.

2. What crafts do you really enjoy?

Knitting, quilting and/or sewing little things...like pillow shams etc. Big things are a bit scary I think.

3. What products do you really covet?

Something that I could use to keep my socks from falling off the needles when they are put up besides those big rubber things.

And, I saw on someone's blog some fabric that had sock monkeys on it and I love it but have absolutely NO idea where it came from. I think it would make a good sock bag *G*

I haven't had the chance to try very many sock yarns so that would be grand.

4. What other activities do you enjoy besides your favorite crafty things?

Reading, watching forensic tv and HGTV and playing with my pets

5. Is there anything you collect?

Right now, rubber duckies. You don't have to dust them...just let them take a bath with you.

6. What is your zodiac sign and/or Chinese zodiac symbol?

Sagitarrius and Monkey

7.What are your favorite…

…scents/smells?

vanilla, apples, pumpkin, lavender

…types of music and/or bands?

classic rock, jazz, and I'm starting to get really interested in classical..not the big booming stuff tho. I like hip hop too. I guess I just like music

…authors?

Susan Wittig Albert, Rita Mae Brown, Jill Churchill's Grace and Favor books, Sharon Fiffer, Sarah Graves, Nora Roberts

…animals?

cats, dogs, sheep

…places to shop?

Knitpicks, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, Amazon, eQuilter..I love books and yarn and fabric

…season?

most definitely fall...with winter being a close second

…yarn/fabric/paper/other craft supplies?

wool sock yarn(hoping Knitpicks comes out with more superwash), Cascade 220, I don't think I ever met a fabric I didn't like, hand made paper. I haven't been knitting socks that long so I don't know about a lot of the yarns.

…candies or goodies?

Chocolate! But it would be a brown puddle. I also love Laffy taffy or BBBats suckers.

8. Do you have any wish lists?

Yes, on Barnes and Noble and Knitpicks

9. Are you allergic to anything?

Chemicals, but I don't imagine you'll be sending cleaning supplies. *G*

10. Do you have any pets? What are they?

3 cats..Mary who is almost 17 and her younger 'sibs" Hershey and Mercy. And a big poodle mix rescue dog Zoey

11. Please include anything else you would like your secret pal to know about you- anything that would be helpful in finding you little gifts that you will really enjoy.

I really do love all happy surprises..my coworkers would attest to that. They say I am very easy since a new bright pencil makes me way happy. And omg, the new school supplies are out!
