1. Screen name: MaryGoRound

2. Real name: Mary Michael - Southern, CA

3. Birthdate: (you don't have to say the year
April 5th

4. Favorite color: It is hard to pick just one. Pink, orange, yellow. A clean navy blue or grey is nice too! I’m currently gaining a fondness for grass green and chartreuse.

5. Least Favorite color: Rusts, Browns

6. Favorite type: (ie; Civil War, 30's, retro's etc)
I prefer a little bit more modern fabric such as Cotton & Steel, or Art Gallery. I ALSO have a soft spot for sweet Riley Blake and 30’s/retro fabric! I’m not much into holiday themed fabrics.

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 mostly sew out of my bedroom (although my mess doesn’t always stay there). I have a lot of windows and very little wall space. The room is painted a very light aqua with grey accents. I use an old wood farm table for my sewing machine. Antique looking boxes, wire baskets, and natural wood elements are fun accents.

8. Complete this sentence: "I can never have too many seam rippers, neutral thread, or starch”

9. Complete this sentence: "No such thing as too much fabric or rotary blades“

10. My Machine prefers Gutermann’s brand of thread. I’m open to other suggestions. My machine is a Juki.

11. Do you quilt/sew for charity? If so which one/s. Do you need/want things that help with that project?
Yes. I don’t need anything at the moment. Our quilt guild provides most of what we use.

12. One little thing I really wish for is:
A stiletto or ??

Please add any other information that you would like your Santa to know about you.
I have three dogs (including my daughters) in addition to that I’m fostering a very sweet chubby Chihuahua from a local rescue group.
I’m going to include a delicious pumpkin cookie recipe. I hope that you enjoy it!
