Hello! My name is Colby and I currently live in Dallas, TX with my boyfriend and my two furry children, Marta and Clifford. I recently moved and my new sewing niche is super cute, hidden right underneath the stairs!
I'd like to thank Beth from Plum and June for organising this cool event. It includes the Blog Hops every Tuesday and Thursday + an Advice for New Bloggers Series, a Let's Figure it Out Together series and Monday Link Up.
My blog mate today is Fiona from Celtic Thistle, so go check her out as well!
Now onto a little bit more about myself and my quilty life!
Mosaic of Makes
I finished my first quilt when I was 9 so I'm 23, that makes it 14 years! My mom was a seamstress growing up so I was surrounding by sewing all my life and sort of gave it up for awhile when I went off to college. I just recently got back into it after I graduated college.
- Favorite quilting tip(s)
If you mess it up, go with it, now it's "unique" and "original". :)
- Favorite blogging tip(s)
Do not let blogging become a chore, if you start dreading it, take a break. It should be fun to share your creativity, don't let blogging make it work.
- Favorite fabric (or wish list fabric)
I don't hold myself to a specific fabric line, I like bold, modern prints and text prints. Not a novelty/cutesy girl...
- Favorite book (or book you are currently reading)
The Defining Decade, it's about how to not waste your twenties! Great read!
- Favorite children's book
Rainbow Fish, I love those scales!!!
- Favorite quilting tool
My extension table!
- Favorite music to listen to while quilting/Favorite TV show while hand stitching
I usually like listening to quilting Podcasts like Katie's Quilting Corner or Radio Shows like American Patchwork and Quilting Radio with Pat Sloan.
- Binding - by hand or by machine?
BY HAND!!! Fo' life!
- If I'd only known - what you wish you knew about blogging before you started your blog
That people actually follow you and that you end up making friends through it!
