Liebster Award

liebsteraward-roses-tag_sewing[1]Thanks to Kristen with A Thought in Every Thread for nominating me and my blog for this award. It’s a way for readers to discover new blogs. Please check out her blog.

Kristen asked me to answer a few questions:

1. How, why & when did you start blogging?

I’m going to repeat myself here since I wrote about this in the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, so I’m going to cut and paste just a little bit of it:

I started this blog because I was looking for a creative outlet. I followed a series of worksheets in a self-help book. I made a “vision board” and wrote a  “purpose statement”. I enjoyed making the vision board more than I liked pursuing the things on the vision board. This discovery led me to start a blog. I had no idea what I wanted my blog to be or to say. I knew I wanted to put text and photos on “paper.”

2. What inspires you most in life?

Inspiration is everywhere. For quilt design, I have a sketch book and doodle and draw and put my thoughts on paper.

This is my idea for a quilt as part of the Savor Each Stitch Book Bee. We are studying Color and I saw this photo on the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s Pinterest page:

3. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Or neither?

I don’t have a pet at the moment. My last pet, Lucy, died a few years ago, and I was devastated — just can’t bring myself to get another pet. I looked for a photo of her to put in this post, uploaded it and became sad looking at her. Ditched that idea.

4. Where do you hope to be in 10 years’ time?

I am fascinated by the Tiny House movement and hope to have a tiny home with less baggage — I see a simple and clean theme here.

5. What is your go-to Karaoke song?

I’ve never participated in Karaoke, but I sing, “I remember when. I remember when I lost my mind” — Crazy by Gnarls Barkley, at the top of my lungs.

6. Favorite city?

Tough question. I’ve lived in mostly small towns but now I live near Richmond, Virginia and work there. It’s a cool place. Richmond-Virginia-Skyline

7. What is one thing you wish you were better at?

I wish I was better at being truthful with my family. I hide what I really believe and think from them. (not my husband or daughter — I’m totally honest with them).

8. Describe your ideal summer’s Day?

Eating ice cream at the Island Cremery in Chinoteague, Virginia. The best ice cream I’ve ever eaten.

island creamery9. What song always makes you want to get up and dance?

“Shout” a la Otis Day and the Knights in Animal House. C’mon now.

10. Your biggest crafting/sewing disaster to date.

C’mon now. Moving on.

11. What is at the top of your bucket list?

Inner peace.

    What a lovely blog you have here. I enjoyed reading this post and scrolled up to read previous ones. Your color sense is great! Which means we like the same things, of course. 😉
