So, over at luvinthemommyhood, there's this... facebook-y sort of fill in the blank thing she's doing all about creativity. I figured that I'd jump on board since I love these things.

Since I love them, I never do them. I've found that the more I adore something, the worse it probably is for me. But in this case, I can't see what it could hurt!

* i'm longing to make "the brown and yellow gingham dress i just drew" right now.

* i want to try "tatting".

* i wish i could sew with "all the lovely, expensive fabrics i see online".

* i dream of making "reasonable clothes for myself".

* i keep track of my ideas by "doodling in a one-subject notebook".

* i'm inspired by "nearly everything".

* i would love to meet "Michelle Obama" in person. (i'd love access to her wardrobe.)

* my favorite fiber is "cotton".

* i like to sew with "wovens".

* my favorite color is "red. all shades but fire engine.".

* i rock at "making it work!".

* i would like to learn how to make "patterns for myself from scratch".

* i like to listen to "the hum of my machine" while i "sew".

* i bring my "eyes and ears" everywhere.

* my favorite thing to "avoid" is "anything kitchen-related".

* my favorite things to "recycle" are "t-shirts".

* my crafting space is "a dark, pokey, huge mess".

* if i had my own crafting room it would be "huge, sunlit, and still a huge mess!".

* i sew with "a Singer Tradition".

* i like to "sew with" "unexpected fabrics".

* i can never get enough "strawberries".

* i adore "Elizabeth".

* i also enjoy "history" and "murder-mysteries".

* i like to fill my shelves with "patterns, books, and toys".

* i create the best when i'm "left to my own devices".

* i am currently excited for "the fall kids clothing week challenge".

* right now i am "procrastinating on a project i don't want to do".

* i love to watch "Poirot and Miss Marple" while creating.

* my guilty pleasure when it comes to creating is "making the old new again".

* my current favorite music crush to listen to while creating is "the local classic rock station".


  1. Thanks so much for joining in! These things are so fun and it's great getting to know you :)

    1. thanks! i'm sort of glad i did it. i've realized a few new things that i hadn't seen coming!

  2. Hey! I want to try tatting too! And I also love Miss Marple.

    1. My great grandmother and my grandmother both did tatting and i have about 10 inches of antique tatting in a baggie that I can't bring myself to use. Nothing seems special enough! If I learn how, maybe I won't feel like I *need* to use the old stuff.

      Miss Marple is such a wonderful old thing! I hope that I'm like her when I'm old. Only without the knitting. I'd never make it to old if I tried to knit with any seriousness.
