M-R over at QuiltMatters tagged me last week. So here we go.
What is your favourite book?
My favorite book is usually whatever book I'm currently reading. There are of course the old standards, like Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. Oh, how much do I love Persuasion? I could pretty much go on and on about books. Reading is a constant. Right now I'm loving A Pig Parade is a Terrible Idea.
2. If you
could have dinner with one person, living or dead, who would it
Just one person! I would have dinner with my husband. A date with my husband is always fun. No policing anyone to make sure they pay enough attention to actually eat their food.
3. When you free motion quilt, do you drop the feed dogs
or quilt with them up?
I hand quilt so this doesn't really mean anything to me, but I am intrigued by the idea of dropping them. What kinds of crazy things do machine quilters do with their machines? It's like a whole 'nother world.
is your proudest quilting moment?
My proudest quilting moment was signing the scrabble quilt. It made it official. I also love hearing/seeing people love the quilt I made. Most of my quilts are made for specific people I know. I try to think of them and their style and it's always fun when I get it right.
did you know you were hooked on quilting?
I've pretty much always sewn, my mom taught me when I was seven or something. I made a t-shirt quilt in middle school and I made my sister a quilt when she graduated from college... I think quilting snuck up on me. Mostly I just have people I want to make quilts for, and it's an ever growing list so I suppose I am hooked. Maybe someday I'll get it out of my system but I don't expect so.
is your favourite place in the world? Why?
Disneyland. I love all the attention to detail. As a detail person I appreciate the time the imagineers took to designs special trash cans and bathroom flooring. Nothing jars you to reality. And of course Disneyland is just fun. The trash cans are only a bonus.
is a little known fact about you?
Besides the fact that I like Disneyland trash cans? I can sing the ABCs backwards... does that count?
8. If you
were given $1,000 that you could spend on anything for YOU, what would you spend
it on -- clothes, shoes, fabric? Something else?
Whenever I spend money on myself it's usually books, caramels and fabric. I expect if I had to spend it all on me that I would be excessively well read, chubby, and covered in loose threads.
is your favourite quilt that you made?
I also really like the quilt I made for my Grandma Birdie, and it's not even a little bit ugly.
is your favourite quilt that someone else made?
Fiona over at Finding Fith had a finish recently that I love! It's a simple log cabin but the colors make it perfect!
you could be any character in a book, which one would it by and why?
Well, I could name you a million characters that I already identify with, but that's not the question. Actually, I'm good being me. So I'll just keep with the Elinor Dashwood, Anne Eliott types and work up the nerve to be Hermione.
