1. I love spring. I have lots of ideas for projects I’d like to try soon!
2. I have been wanting to make a table runner. Who knows if that’s what will end up happening!

Thanks for this fun interview and giveaway!

What is your most inspiring time of year or day?
Mid morning any time of year is the time of day I am most inspired. Spring and fall are the season that I find most inspirational.

What will you make with your prize?
I will be making pouches/bags for people to take essesntials with them when they go in for treatments (e.g., cancer, etc). It’s large enough to hold a cell phone, some money, chapstick, etc.



And for the scrap bags….

One for each of two winners from Blue Nickel Studios, the winners are:

I am probably more productive towards the afternoon-night.

I have been contemplating a nice big bag to haul my craft stuff around in.

Wow! You have a fabulous interview style – what fun to read! I have found a new blog I must keep up with and I am a huge fan of your goodies in flickr.

As for the answers to the questions…I think I am most inspired by the spring – the change from dormancy to life bursting out everywhere – buds on the trees, bulbs poking through the earth, the grass regaining its green (not that we have any of that here!)

as for what I would make – hmmm…too hard to say just one thing – I am a bit obsessed with the log cabin square these days, so maybe a table runner to celebrate spring….or maybe finally something for ME! LOL…I also have a bit of a sofite fetish going on right now so my list is a bit long!

thanks so much for a fun interview & great giveaway!

Congratulations to Carrie in KC, Sara, Nova, and Kristen….please email me privately with your snail mail addresses and Jennifer and I will send out our prizes to you each….

A large thank you to all who stopped by and commented with such great thoughts and ideas!  Be sure to let us know what you create of your winnings, and come back here  to the Blue Nickel in a couple days for the info on the giveaway I am doing with Stichin’ Heaven….as well as just to visit, look around, and/or say hi!

Here’s one for the road. 

A vintage piece that came from my Grandma’s house..yes this is the width of it…everything is cut wrong, and somehow that pinkish blob on the left is bleed through from sitting around too long I guess….I had kitchen curtains of it in college, but I think I left them in that apartment!  If only I had valued then what I value now!  But the past is passed, and we all must move one.  I am thankful for this remaining piece!




  • 🙁 – that’s all I have to say about that. Oh ya, and,…I usually have such a positive attitude about not winning because I’m excited that someone else is a winner but I enter into SO MANY give-a-ways and I’ve never won, and I’m just so stinkin’ tired of it and…you’re my friend so I can let it all out with you…right?????

    OK…I’ll smile now! 🙂

    Poor Elaine, so sorry dear friend….but yes you can vent here too. The Blue Nickel is kind of like the local pub…without the alcohol… 🙂
