|L to R: Laurie and JULIE- Salt Lake City 2011|
Where did you grow up?
St. Paul, Minnesota.
ONE in quilting. I’ve been working professionally with fabric in some form
or another for about 25 years now.
Reading, listening to music of all types, and watching movies, especially of the Jimmy Stewart variety.
No funny stories yet, I’m sure in time I will have plenty!
A librarian. That was about the time I learned to use a sewing machine
and switched to being a designer, either interior or clothing.
Going with my dad to the local nursery to pick up a Christmas wreath. I was about 3.
With 3 siblings you didn’t always get one on one Dad time. I can still smell Christmas in the air and remember my wonderful dad lifting me up onto the counter.
My very first job was at the age of 10 , in those pre-VCR days.
My sister paid me a quarter a day to watch her soap opera (Ryan’s Hope) while she was at her summer job, and tell her what happened.
Famous Dave’s Devil’s Spit BBQ Sauce,
100% grape juice,
and Pace Medium Picante Sauce,.
A Log Cabin, but done in crazy modern prints. I like the juxtaposition of old and new,
and my “center” (home, family, friends) is hugely important to me.
Hmmm, a toss up between puppies and the public library.
I get to go see people’s cool stores and show them pretty fabric to sell in those stores.
Go to Spain
Go to Scotland
Hold a baby fox (not sure how I’m gonna do this one.)
Get rid of the Creeping Charlie on my front lawn (ditto)
Actually use a good percentage of all those recipes I’ve been accumulating for years.
I LOVE the sounds of a bowling alley.
Lip balm. Everything else is negotiable.
Vegas every year or 2.
And coffee. Delicious, dependable coffee….sigh.
Finding just the right items to restore my 50’s house.
Enjoy everything and be grateful. We really have it good.
80’s asymmetrical haircuts. They were just so cute.
