I am a WAHGM, I design and sell baby quilts, quilt kits, rag quilt bags and totes. I love fabric and sewing, cooking and decorating, and pretty much anything homey and domestic, even cleaning!
Summertime, beach houses, cottage style decor, outdoor decor like tin signs, bird houses, bouys, flower pots, gerber daisies or almost any kind of daisy. Americana decor items.
Fabric, fabric, fabric. I love Moda quilting fabrics, Michael Miller retro and Amy Butler to name a few. Would like to find some interesting organic fabrics to try too.
Cooking and entertaining. I am a foodie. A few favorites are good cheese, spices, chocolate for cooking, wine, microbrew beers. I cook from scratch and don't use recipes much, but I like to read recipes.
I live in the mountains and my house is pretty large. I tend to ignore the fact that it is a straight up 70s style house and decorate different rooms as I see fit in whatever style I am into at the moment. I like light and bright, or warm and sunny, most colors except pastels. Almost all the "infrastructure" in my house is yuck brown and I am in a constant battle to overcome that. I am not afraid to paint my walls wine frost and silverberry, or River Rock Stagbush.
I sew and am learning quilting, love almost any fabric crafts. I am trying to learn hand embroidery. I like scrapbooking and cardmaking too. I admire knitters and wish I had the patience to learn!
I don't watch movies because I have a short attention span and my mind wonders. Really not so much into TV either, but I listen to news and politics a lot since my degree is Poli Sci, I guess that makes sense.
Books I like are true crime, historic novels. My fav books of all time are War and Remembrance, The Stand.
I like quilting books, almost any craft books, trash to treasure books and simple living books.
