UPDATED Aug 10, 2018

1. My first name: Mary. (Well, it's really Virginia, but that's a well kept secret - so mum's the word. )

2. My birthday is March 23,

3. My favorite color(s): I love all colors, but my top favorites are powder blue, turquoise, and emerald green. Purples and lavenders are high on my list, too. Ooh, and yellows!

4. Colors I don't like: none. Every color has it's place in my stash. Even brown!

5. My favorite Style(s) of fabric: I love batiks, 30's, Vintage, Civil War, landscape prints, mountain lodge prints, pine cone/bough prints, , brights, Christmas, other holidays, florals, plaids, polka dots,stripes, WOW's, all tonals, - oh, gosh! I love it all!

6. Fabric style(s) I don't care much for: "mod" like from the 70's, and very large scale prints.

7. Quilt pattern I would like to have: Any small Wool applique project. Any holiday, but Christmas is my favorite. And previously used is more than OK with me!! Also, I like patterns for cat things, and even sheltie things, though they are hard to find! Pieced, appliqué, and paper-pieced are all great!

8. Do you applique by Hand or Machine? Both

9. How do you quilt your projects? Hand, machine, LongArm, etc.? Mostly long arm (my DH does most of it!). I use my sewing machine for smaller projects.

10. My favorite candy: SNICKERS!! In an emergency I can make do with any chocolate/nut/caramel candy, but Snickers has always been my 'drug' of choice. But M&M Peanuts work well, too!. . . I do NOT like mint.

11. My hobbies: In my non-quilting hours, I enjoy reading 'cozy' mysteries, creative writing, genealogy, dancing, camping, RV travel, walking, wine-tasting, board games, hand embroidery, cross-stitching, hexies, and yo-yo's.

12. My pets are Foxy, my 4-yr old tuxedo kitty, and Scottie, our 5 yr old black/white sheltie. They are “My boys”.

13. Things I like to collect: Landscape fabrics and 'building' fabrics (as in wood, brick, rock, sky, water, grass, trees, etc. prints). I also like all things cat, particularly black & white cats. I collect Sylvester the Cat items. I have a collection of sheltie things (stuffies, bric-a-brac, patterns, pictures, etc) and since my sheltie is black/white, that's what I look for most. Christmas ornaments! And I enjoy unique, handmade pin cushions and am accruing a small collection, all made by quilty pals, to display in my sewing room. Thimbles from other states always have a place on my display shelf, too!

14. ALLERGY ALERTS: cigarette smoke. Plus I don't care for fruity scents like peach, strawberry, etc in lotions, etc. I don't burn candles at all anymore since the time I left one burning in my sewing room all night long. 😱

15. My little wish list: Seam Ripper (I use them a LOT and they get dull.) Any of the smaller rulers - (I want to make a basic quilting kit to keep in our trailer since we travel so much.) Holiday and cat patterns.

16. do you like homemade gifts: Of course! That's what we're all about here!

17. do you mind re-gifted items (ex. FQ's made from someones stash, already read books, used patterns, used notions). I actually prefer used, or as I like to think of them, previously-loved & enjoyed items. Especially books or patterns with notes already scribbled in them. Used items give off a warm, positive energy. Yes, I believe in that stuff. 😁

18. my favorite places to use gift cards (ex. quilt shops, food places, etc) ~ Joann's MSQC

19. Magazine so I get: American patchwork and quilting, McCalls, Block.

20. A little known fact about me: I am a retired professional belly dancer.

21. Some tidbits of info about me (ex., profession, retired, my special likes, etc.): I'm 66, Catholic, farm-raised, the fifth of six children, married, have 3 married kids, and 2 grown grandsons. I am 5' tall (almost), have short curly red hair, and love animals. I've been quilting for 30+ years. I worked for Weyerhaeuser Co. for several years before becoming an R.N. I worked in an NICU for 20 yrs and am now retired. We do a lot of traveling in our Arctic Fox fifth-wheel (and yes, all the fur-kids go with!) so I never leave home without a selection of quilting projects - both machine and hand work.

1. My first name is Mary

2. My birthday is 9/20/55

3. I like all colors for quilts. So far the quilts I have made have all been gifts and the colors have been what that person liked. I tend to gravitate to bright colors when making baby/children's quilts.

4. I don't think there are any colors I wouldn't use.

5. I don't have a favorite style of fabric. I mix and match fabrics according to what I think looks good in the pattern I am working on at the time.

6. My least favorite style of fabric for quilts is directional prints that have definite top and bottom.

7. Quilt patterns I would like to have? That's a tough one. I'll have to get back to you on this one.

8. I applique by machine. Would love to learn how to hand applique though.

9. I quilt by hand and machine. I am still learning on my Artistic SD long arm.

10. My favorite candy is homemade horehound candy (can't find the horehound plant anymore though).

11. Other things I like to do in my spare time are crocheting and embroider.

12. I have two cats. Their names are Morton and Emily.

13. I collect cups and unique salt and pepper shakers. However I have been working at down sizing collectibles because I am running out of space and things are getting too cluttered.

14. My allergies are all hay fever related.

15. My little wish list is getting some needles for my Artistic Quilter, a collection of quilting thread colors in cone thread for my AQSD, extra bobbins for my AQSD, hand embroidery and hand quilting needles, binding clips, and a triangle square up ruler.

16. I love homemade gifts. They are the best kind of gift.

17. Re-gifted items are great (as long as it is not a gift I gave you, LOL).

18. My favorite places to use gift cards are The Patchwork Pig, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, and QIAD.

19. It is a little Known fact that I used to play Violin and I grew up in foster homes.

20. Other pertinent information is another tough one. Let's see...I love Jesus, accepted Him into my heart as my Lord and Savior when I was nine years old. I work full time at Home Depot. My dream is to be able to start teaching young folks the art of sewing, quilting, and crochet when I retire.

21. The colors around my house are very eclectic. I enjoy the comfort of earth tone decor and bring the look of nature into my home as much as possible.

22. I do not subscribe to any magazines. They are not in the budget at this time.

23. My domestic machine is a Kenmore. My long arm is an Artistic Sit Down Quilter. I inherited my Grandmother's Singer treadle machine, but it needs to be refurbished before I can use it. My hope is to get it fixed and be able to use it for piecing quilts.
