About Me

Hi! I'm Kim, a 39-year-old married housewife and cat-Mom. I'm looking forward to many happy swaps!

I love to cook, craft, and spend time with my hubby and cat-children.

We are a Non-Smoking, Cat-Friendly household!

♥♥♥In the realm of full disclosure: I was previously here on swap-bot with the account name ThreadTheLove, but had to leave suddenly in 2009 due to a medical crisis. I am feeling healthier now and wanted to rejoin and enjoy the swaps like I did before. I had Rachel merge my accounts, so all my previous ratings are here (all 5's). It does look like I had one outstanding swap, and I will be messaging those involved to hopefully come to a resolution. Thanks for reading! ♥♥♥

vsengupta rated for Crochet Flower Brooch (Knit) on Apr 8, 2014
Comment: Dear Kim: The crocheted flower brooch is absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of a large red poppy flower. Also, it's very festive too. Oh...and thank you so....so....much for the lovely printed batik fabric. I think that I will use it in my doll making. I recently signed up to make an "Icicle Doll" for a swap and this fabric will be perfect for the project. I'm also the Coordinator for "Handmade Bookmarks". I hope that you will consider joining the swap. Valerie Sengupta........
