This month's blog is a great blog for the cook, the stitcher and the Homeschooler. Lisa has a lot of strength and is a wonderful strong woman with 4 wonderful children. She loves to share what her children learn in Homeschooling and loves to share her love of crafting with her children and the rest of us. Lisa's blog is a wonderful testament to good fashion values that people forget at times. Thank you Lisa for sharing your blog with us. Here is the questionnaire that she has filled out for me.
1. What made you Start Stitching/Quilting?
Lisa-When I was in college I needed a hobby of some sort and my mother had been cross stitching for years (she mainly does linen) so she offered some of her stash and to teach me, I loved the ability to pack it up and take it with and then in between classes sit in the common area and stitch (though I had a lot of raised eyebrows coming my way!).
2. What is your favourite Designer?
Lisa-I have to admit a weakness for Teresa Wentzler. I got hooked on her when I did my first linen project - a green and gold dragon with Chinese symbols in the border. I am currently working on Rapunzel by her as well!
3. If you can learn one technique, what would it be?
Lisa-I would love to learn to tat... my Grandma used to do pieces right in front of us as gifts when she visited and it has always fascinated me!
4. What made you start blogging?
Lisa-I wanted to put up some of my finished sewing and the kids' school stuff (we are homeschooling) and after one entry I was hooked! It is great to be accountable for my day and my promises and to have the opportunity to share my ups and downs! And my stitching of course!
5. Do you have any tips for the aspiring stitcher/quilter?
Lisa-Start small and don't get discouraged. Try different mediums until you find your favourite and don't be afraid to experiment with supplies, colours and patterns!
6. If you can meet someone either Living or Dead, who would it be?
Lisa-I think I would love to meet my great grandparents... they were such strong people and I have pictures of some of them and myself as an
7. What tips do you have for people who want to start their own blog?
Lisa-Make it personal to you... you don't have to cover everything but be sure to make it yours. Try to find someone who is knowledgeable about computers to help you set it up. That way you don't have to worry about things working or looking their best!
