Follower Friday

It's that time of the week again!!
Woohoo, survived till Friday!

This week we have
Name: Cheraldine
Family: I live with my 2 Giant brothers and crazy parents
Location: UK

Day job: Currently Unemployed,  but sewing like a crazed lunatic!
Dream job: To own my own business, which I’m currently working towards. It would be making and selling various fabric items. I love to sew and this would be just perfect!

What are you working on now? I’m in the process of making items to sell at a carnival coming up in my area. It’s not until July so I have a few months to sew like crazy!

I’m also in the Modern She made Swap and have been creating an item for my partner. These are just some ideas.

Place: I really love Poplars Garden Centre! During the seasons they have various displays and it always looks amazing 

Movie: I’ve watched a lot of movies in my time; my all time favourite has got to be A Goofy Movie!

Food:  I love shepards pie! I don’t know what It is about it, but it always tastes great!
Way to spend a Friday night: I usually have to cook dinner on a Friday. Before hand I get as much sewing done as possible and wind down the evening with some blog reading and commenting.
Fabric line: I love so many different fabrics from various lines. I tend to choose the ones I love the most when buying like shown here. I love the Echo prints and anything spotty and dotty.
Color: I have a range of favourite colours. I prefer the darker shade. Midnight blue, Plum purple, bottle green and I love burnt orange.

Designer: That is a tough choice! I must give credit to Patty Sloniger. I love the Backyard Baby fabrics and hunted down a bundle! I won’t be using that for a while. I also love the Lizzy House fabrics.

Project completed by you: I must admit I haven’t completed an awful lot of projects as I only really got into quilting late February. One quilt I have made and love is my MAM Quilt (mine all mine) - I have a tutorial - I Had just started buying fabrics and used the ones I loved to make this quilt.

Project when you need a quick finish: I like making pillows. To be honest it takes me a while to pick a backing fabric for them, but they are quick to make.

Least Favorites:
Color: I don’t like red or pink! Either hardly used on a fabric is fine, but solid based no way!
Fabric line: I’m not a fan of prints with sealife on them…..I’ve seen the Heather Ross Mendocino and I’m afraid to say I really don’t like the prints. I don’t like anything too floral either.
Project completed by you: I made baby quilts. The backing and binding went all wrong! I think I’ll eventually bind them properly and I may love them more…

Big plans for 2012?
As mentioned before the Carnival is coming up so I’ll be making a lot of things for that. Next year me and my best friend plan to open up an online business selling various handmade items! I guess buying as much fabric as possible is a big plan, since I’ll have to hunt for the best prices. USA seems to be the way to go, the exchange rate works out really well and I’ve bought some great fabrics!
I’m hoping to find another job soon, so I’ll have more money to buy all the fabric and sewing items I need to make my dream more of a reality.
I would also like to join more swaps and follow more blogs to learn more about the quilting world =D

    I have to agree with you, I'm not a big fan of fish/sealife prints either. but hey, that leaves more for the folks that love it ;o)
