If you would like to play along, please take these questions and have fun--would love to read everyone's answers.
How big is yourstash? (i.e., how many boxes, bins or pounds? You determine the measurement)
Yeah, I’m not a fabric-y kind of person, really. I do have a small container of ribbons I like to use on presents. May not be able to wrap very well, but I can tie a mean bow. Hey, it’s something anyway.
Are you an early bird or night owl?
Oh, I fly with the owls. The “early bird gets the worm” never appealed to me. Maybe it’s the worm thing. Ew.
Do you speak any other languages? If not what other language do you wish you knew?
I’m pretty good with French, but I would love to speak so many languages, like Mandarin and Spanish.
What store do you have a hard time leaving empty-handed (online or bricks and sticks)?
If I had to pick one, I’d say Sephora. I love that place—all your favorite beauty products in one stop…can we say dream?! And they accept returns. *squeal* It’s not just make-up, either—you have skin care, hair care, bath & body products…oooh, it’s so much fun, and I always find something to try out.
What are your favorite blogs to read?
Everyone that I have met on here is so special and unique and wonderful that I couldn’t possibly name favorites because I love them all.
What is your favorite book or movie?
Again, so many. Harry Potter, to me, is just perfection for all ages, both book and film.
Where do you sew?
Where do you sew?
I don’t sew. I tried...it didn't end well. Wish I really knew how to sew, but I don’t. Maybe one day.
When did you make your first quilt?
I’ve never made one, but I’ve always loved them. When I think of a quilt, I think, “Made with Love.”
How many hours per week (per day?) do you spend on Pinterest? What, if anything have you made/acquired/acted on that you pinned?
I literally just heard about Pinterest, but I know nothing about it.
What’s your favorite quilting tip?
Since I don’t quilt myself, the only tip I can give is to cherish those that are made for you or those you find, knowing each stitch is made with love. Quilts, to me, tell a story--one you can't see, but one you can feel.
Did you make a New Years resolution? Have you kept it?
I try not to make resolutions, but instead create a new or modified set of goals. Resolutions never work. They just don’t.
For example, “I resolve to not drink soda.” For a while, this resolution works, until said resolution sucks so bad you break it. Then, you realize resolutions as a whole just plain suck, are a complete waste of time, and end up making you feel bad about yourself when you break them.
So, yeah, goals are a much better way to go—like, I will slowly begin cutting back on soda, until I’m only drinking it during, say, an LSU game (which is just so necessary…I would be frightened to see myself sans soda during an LSU game *shivers*). See? Much more manageable, minus the suck and guilt parts.
With my sinuses finally easing up, I was able to thoroughly enjoy the NASCAR race yesterday...until rain caused an abrupt ending. Sigh. BUT...Dale finished 3rd!!! He was methodically ripping it up all race long. Another amazing finish for the 88, lifting him to 3rd in Sprint Cup Standings.
