I will need to think on my hints for a while. I will come back and fill in the blanks when I get it all worked out.

Mary/Rosebud

1. I would really like to make a quilted cover up jacket for myself. (I need to find a picture or take a picture of the one I want to replace.)
2. I like these colors: My favorite are orange, blues and mauves, but I like all colors.
3. I love applique: I like applique, but prefer piecing and embroidery.
4. I love to snack on different kinds of snacks when I'm sewing. Different types of nuts like cashews and pistachios are some of my favorites.
5. I could really use: graph paper and 45mm rotary cutter blades that fit the Fiskars rotary cutter. (I will like and enjoy whatever you choose to send, so please feel free to choose what you want.)

3. I love applique: yes! Machine, hand, and wool
4. I love to snack on M&M Peanuts or oyster crackers when I'm sewing
