Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap

What are your favorite kinds of coffee? (Brands, Roasts, anything at all you'd like to share!) Dark rich blends, the richer the aroma, the better!

Do you prefer whole bean or ground coffee? Ground

This time of year, there are often Holiday Blends available, and many flavored coffees - do you drink flavored coffee? Do you enjoy special blends? No, not so much flavored, but always up to try something special and different.

How do you take your coffee? Cream and Sugar? Straight up? Decaf? Black as a moonless night.

Do you prefer drinking from a nice thick mug, or a matched cup and saucer? Oh, the thicker and bigger the mug, the more fun to be had.

What is your favorite part of Winter? Sitting by the fire, or lounging under a wonderful afghan watching the snow fly.

Do you celebrate a holiday in December, and if so, which holiday? We celebrate traditional Christmas on December 25th.

If you celebrate Christmas, do you put up a tree? Yes, we put up a monster tree 95% of the time.

Would you enjoy items related to the holiday, or would you prefer a Winter themed package? Winter themed would be preferable so it can be enjoyed for a longer period of time.

Do you collect anything? Are there any holiday or winter-themed items (Snowmen, Angels, Snoflakes, Santas, etc) that you collect? I do not collect any winter themed items, just Barbie things once in awhile.

Do you wear scarves? Mittens? Hats? Definintely scarves. Never hats.

What is your favorite holiday or winter treat? Fudge, and lots of it!

Please share a favorite Winter or Holiday memory. I have many, but one that comes to mind is the Christmas gifts I made for my husband and son one year. Hubby got a long flannel nightshirt, son (very little at the time) got pajamas out of the same flannel, and his Cabbage Patch doll Jimmy got matching pj’s also. The 3 of them in that photo are precious to my heart – SO darned CUTE!

Yarn and Crafting Do you Knit or Crochet? For how long? I do both, knitting for 40 years, crocheting for 30 years.

Do you like wooden, metal, or plastic needles\hooks? Circular or straight? I enjoy working with every kind but plastic – I stay away from them as they make my hands sweaty. Learning to adore circulars!!!!

What sort of projects do you enjoy making? Sweaters, scarves, baby things, afghans, purses/bags

What are your favorite types of yarn to work with? I am falling in love with the new wools that are out there. And cashmere? OOOOO, let me count the ways I adore cashmere!

Do you spin or dye? Neither

Do you do other crafts such as scrapbooking or needlepoint or anything else? I scrapbook and sew, but haven’t done much of either for about six months – I’m too much in love with yarn right now.

When is your birthday? April 21

Do you have any children? (Furry kind count!) Three children, 5 grandchildren, 2 dogs, a bird, and more!

What are your favorite colors? Olive green and purple

Do you have any allergies? Nope!
