Update 8/24/18

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 am interested in trying a bargello style quilt but haven't decided which one I should start with.

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 quilter. I am getting better, but still need practice with different quilting designs.

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 embroidery. A couple months ago I started a project at work and started teaching myself wood burning.

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 wish list: hand quilting needles-flower head quilter pins-wonder clips-1" bent quilter's safety pins-quilt mysteries. Most of all would be whatever gift you would like me to have because it is a gift from your heart.

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.
