WIP Wed: Tag and Tops
I'm afraid we got 2 pieces of bad news in our family this week and last. It's left me sad and reflective. It's hard to live so far away from family during times like these. I wish I were closer to help. One thing I can do though is make a quilt. I decided to pull out a top that's been in my "UFO" (unfinished object) pile and get to work. I now have 2 quilt tops pin basted together, and hope to have a few in the mail by the end of the week. So these are my big "WIP"'s this week.
On a lighter note, I was "tagged" by Amy at "Harriet Homemaker Strikes Again". She left a post answering a set of questions, then tagged 5 of us to answer another set. I decided instead of tagging another 5 bloggers, I'll ask you a question to answer in the comments, if you feel like playing :-). Here's the questions she asked me:
1) 10 years ago, what occupied the majority of your time during the day.
Easy... my 2 boys, who were quite young then!!
2) What motivated you to begin quilting and when did you start.
I've been sewing since I was a kid, started my first quilt 20 years ago for my fiance(now husband), but didn't finish it, or start another until about 2004, after discovering rotary cutters and rulers.
3) How big is your fabric stash and what color do you have the most and least of?
I have 2 small bookcases where I store my fabric. I'd guess about a square yard of fabric :-O. Over half of this is fabric for garments though, including polar fleece, which takes up a lot of space. I probably have more "cammo" than anything else LOL. I gravitate more towards the cooler colors in quilting, purple, blue, green. I have very little red or orange.
4) What is your favorite munchie snack or treat?
I go for salt over sugar, so Goldfish crackers are my favorite, at home, and french fries are my biggest restaurant vice.
5) Where do you craft?
Wherever I can find room. Lately it's been in a corner of our bedroom and the front door entryway.
6) How many projects do you have in active (3 months or less since you working on it) progress, and what are they?
Oh my! Can I plead the 5th on this one?
7) Who do you make things for most and why?
My family, 'cause I love them...
8) If you could live anywhere in the world, not including your current home, where would it be and why?
Wow. I'm not a world traveler, so I'm not sure. I've always wanted to see Australia!
Thanks Amy! Now my question to all of you! How do you plan to spend your summer? Trips? Pool-side? Gardening? Work?
