7 Briefly describe your sewing space: Do you have a separate room? or a corner in another room? What colors do you have in it. My main sewing room is what used to be the family room. Walls are off white. Not a lot of wall space. I have 3 sewing machines in there, a huge desk for my main Janome machine, a tall cabinet for storing fabric and projects. Nice big cutting table, It's kind of crowded but everything I need is close at hand.

4. Favorite color: I have no “favorite”. I love most all colors.

5. Least Favorite color: Also I do not dislike any particular color.

6. Favorite type: (ie; Civil War, 30's, retro's etc) I am a fan of all types. Not a big fan of very large prints.

7 Briefly describe your sewing space: Do you have a separate room? or a corner in another room? What colors do you have in it. I live full time in a 5th Wheel RV. No separate sewing room. I have to set up my machine and cutting mat, pressing area, etc each and everytime I need to or want to sew. No set color scheme.

8. Complete this sentence: "I can never have too many pins and safety pins or spools of neutral color threads for piecing."

9 Complete this sentence: "No such thing as too much ???????? no answer here!

10. My Machine prefers (ANY)_ brand of thread.

11. Do you quilt/sew for charity? If so which one/s. Do you need/want things that help with that project? I piece quilt tops with my church and all of our fabric and thread is being donated. We really do have quite a lot in our project room.

12. One little thing I really wish for_ I really don’t have a wish list for anything. But I do enjoy a recycled quilt magazine or book with a nice positive story base.

Added info: Since we are full time living in RV, no extra room for hanging things on walls. I really do enjoy changing placemats and table toppers for decor. I am diabetic, so no sweet treats, please. I love feeding the hummingbirds and watching and learning about their habits. DH and I go fishing together in summer. We have a 13 year old beagle that we love so much. I also love to browse old quilt magazines. Sometimes I find them at garage sales and Thrift Shops.

1. Screen Name: Quiltmom
2. Real Name: Sherry
3. Birthdate: October 2, 1947 (getting better with age)

4. Favorite Color: Maize and Blue (Go Wolverines)
5. Least favorite color: Bright orange and batiks
6. Favorite Type: Civil War and 1800's repros

7. My sewing space is basically all over the house. Since it is now just me and the furbabies I can spread out my sewing. I store my fabrics and supplies in closet at the end of the hall. My cutting table is very large in what I call the dining room. My sewing machine is on an SewEzi table that I can move all around. No specific colors except in the room where I do most of my sewing. I have it decorated in Michigan Wolverines and Chicago Cubs stuff.

8. I can never have too many small nativity scenes that I collect.
9. No such thing as too much Civil War fabric.
10. My Machine prefers good quality cotton Coats and Clark brand of thread.

11. I don't belong to a group that quilts for charity but have been thinking about starting to quilt some lap robes for the VA Hospital. Just need to get my act together. I don't need fabric because I have more than I will ever use.

12. One little thing I really wish for is a good circular template that is medium size.

Not much more I can add. Since DH passed 5 years ago it has always been Smoke and me until Sweetie showed up in my backyard last winter cold and sick. Now it is just us in the house and they run it. It is so good to have both of my sons and their families close now after all these years. I love being able to go to my grandson's activities like most normal grandmas after them being gone in all those years their dad was in the Corps. On the whole other than wishing DH was here after 47 years together I am truly enjoying my retirement.

I do a lot of counted cross stitching and love it just as much if not more than my quilting. I also do 1000+ piece puzzles in the winter. So as you can see I don't get too bored. When weather is nice I get out and go also.
