An interview and an invitation...

Ruth has asked me to do an interview, so here are my boring answers:

1. If you could do anything you've never done before, what would it be and why? I guess my choice would be to travel on the train through the Denali National Park in Alaska and stay at the lodge for a week. I have been lucky enough to have gone to all the states, but I only skimmed the coastline of Alsaka on a cruise. I would really love to travel the inland areas of that gorgeous state.

2. Of everything you've stitched, what piece are you most proud of and why? This is a hard one, I think if this was asked to me this summer, I would say my Lizzie*Kate Monthly Stamp wall hanging quilt. But, it isn't done yet, so I guess I am not allowed to give that an an answer. I have a couple of other LARGE projects that when I get done could be considered, but then, they have the same problem _ not completed yet. So, I guess of my completions, I would say that I am most proud of my Witchy Washy

3. Are you going to teach all the grands to stitch... at least a little?
Yes and no would have to be my answer. My oldest Grandchild, Harrison lives in Maine, and I only get to see him once a year if I am lucky. So, that time has not been spent teaching him how to stitch. BUT, my little Lily, who is still too young to learn much yet, has visited Michael's almost every two weeks that she has been alive. I want her to feel and be comfortable with the ambiance of the place. I have already bought her sewing cards, which I figure will be the first step, and I have a child's needlepoint kit ready for her when I feel the time is right. I sure hope that I can brainwash, I mean teach her the love of the needle. I was an abysmal failure with her mother, my daughter. Now, in fairness, Lisa does do crafts, but no needle ones - too slow for her.
4. If you could live in complete comfort anywhere in anything (ie. Antarctica in an igloo), where would it be and why? I think that I would have to pick a cabin on a hilltop overlooking a lake where our boat was moored. This would mean air conditioning and great screens around a large deck with a lake view, and a way for there to be no mold. Also, there would have to be a golf cart type thing to get me to and from the boat. I sure couldn't hike the hill!! The cabin would have to be big enough for a studio for my crafts and a number of guest rooms for my friends and family. Don't want much, do I?
That completes my rambling, and I would like to invite any of you who read this to allow me to interview you. It really is kind of fun.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!


Karen said... hubby would be so jealous you have been to all 50 states. He can't wait to get back out west. You asked on my blog if I cut my own mats...I wish. My hometown LNS went of business last year and they had a frame shop. I stocked up on mats and odd sized frames since she was giving me a great deal! Now...I just have to stitch stuff to fit them!!!!!

Love your stitched piece....that is too cute!
