7 Things Meme

I have been tagged by Joyce at J's Quilting Blog to tell you 7 things about myself you don't already know. Here goes:

1. I don't hand quilt--ever! I can't get the precision and exactness of stitch length and stitch quality like I can when I quilt by machine. I gave up trying to hand quilt a very long time ago!

2. I love to collect things: chickens, thimbles, and pins from quilt shows that I have been to.

3. I quilt every day--or do something quilt related. I count reading quilt books and magazines as doing something quilt related as this is one source of inspiration. In the last year and a half I have also counted reading blogs as quilt related. The number of quilts and quilting projects started since I have started blogging is testament that this is definitely a source of inspiration for my work.

4. I love to travel with my quilting friends whether it be a small number in a car headed to a shop hop or a large number in a bus headed to a quilt show.

5. I love the old classic TV shows like Beverly Hillbillies, I Love Lucy, Hogan's Heroes, etc.

6. I don't usually follow a commercial pattern 100%. I usually find myself making modifications to either change the size, the border, etc.

7. I tend to keep more than I throw out. That is why I am currently undertaking a process to de clutter, reduce stuff, and only keep the essentials (at least essential according to my definition of essential. *LOL*)

There you have it--7 thing that you didn't know about me. I am not going to tag specific people. If you enjoyed reading along and would like to play, consider yourself tagged!


  1. alrighty then, #1 - I'd love to hand quilt, but I don't have the patience to do it. I want the project done NOW!
    #2 CHICKENS as collectibles ROCK! :)
    #3 quilting a day, keeps the doctor away!
    #4 I love travelling, period! I want to be a trucker when I grow up, but my husband isn't really thrilled about it, so I probably won't.
    #5 Classic tv was good! Tv now, not so good.
    #6 Yea, I don't know anyone who doesn't tweak a pattern to thier own personality. That's the best thing about quilting. It's all about YOU! :)
    #7 But what is essential? Isn't it all necessary for something?? Good luck in your "declutterization". :)

  2. This has been such a fun meme - learning about each other. I'm now at the S's in my reading - I think I'm coming down the home stretch!

  3. Norma,
    It's fun reading stuff about people. It makes me feel like I know you a little better.
