CathieJ of Cathie's Craftworks was so sweet to nominate me for the Outstanding Blogger Award! Thank you, Cathie - I really appreciate that! I've gotten to know Cathie through the Slow Sunday Stitching link-up at Kathy's Quilts, so I thought I'd post my response right here on my Sunday post. Cathie gave me some questions to answer, so here goes!
Do you do anything else while crafting? (i.e. listen to music or a book, watch TV, etc.)
I usually work on embroidery, hand-piecing, or other kinds of hand stitching in the evenings when my husband and I watch TV together. I enjoy having something to do with my hands while we have a show on.
Do you prefer crafting alone, with a friend or in a group?
I mostly sew alone. My favorite time in my studio with the sewing machine is an hour or so every afternoon, and it's sort of sacred "me" time! I do have a local quilt group that meets monthly, and we often bring a show-and-tell project, but we don't sew together.
Beach, lake, mountains? What would be your preferred place to vacation/visit?
Always - the beach! I live just on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, so I can go there whenever I want. So a beach vacation is a must. Due to Covid, of course, we haven't traveled in a long time. But a few years ago, I put my toes in the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Gulf of Mexico all in one year! I'm definitely looking forward to a trip back to the ocean - hopefully later this year.
What is your favorite genre of music?
I love all kinds of music! I enjoy singing along with 60s classics, country-western, and Broadway musicals. I also love groups like Celtic Women, Enya, and soloists like Celine Dion or Josh Groban.
