Follower Friday

We're back in action this week with another follower!


Name:  Lucy
Family: The most amazing husband, 2 wonderful kiddies and a beautiful cat (before you puke... he snores, they can cause havoc and the cat drools!)
Location: Manchester, UK
Twitter: @charmaboutyou but I seriously don't understand it or how it works!!
Etsy: not yet!


Day job: Mum
Dream job: I'm living the dream

What are you working on now? A million things. My priority is a baby quilt and finishing my Stained QAL, also working on my e.p.p. Rose Star blocks and any embroidery I can.


Place: So many! Toronto, Las Vegas, Florence, Paris, Colorado and obviously Manchester!
Movie: You've Got Mail (I just can't help myself!), anything with Fred Astaire, Paul Newman or Ryan Gosling in.
Food: I'd love to say something really healthy or interesting but it's pretty much Pizza or a Marmite and cheese sandwich!!
Way to spend a Friday night: Eating pizza watching any of the above films!

Fabric line: It's really hard to chose but I am in love with Lark by Amy Butler
Color: currently orange but forever pink and grey.
Designer: Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Tula Pink, Aneela Hoey, Joel Dewberry and Jay McCarroll

Project completed by you: I think it would be the'Does Not Compute' quilt I made for my son

Project when you need a quick finish: Any kind of little bag or some cute embroidery


Least Favorites:
Color: I don't seem to use a lot of red, although I do like it! I'm not a huge fan of purple but I have made a couple of purple quilts.
Fabric line:I embrace the fugly
Project completed by you: If I'm really honest I never really love anything I make, I think things always seem better in my head so I could pick any of my projects. Having said that there's always some aspects I do like and it's all about learning.

Big plans for 2012?
Make myself a quilt or two! I would really love to get round to some hand quilting when I eventually have one for myself - I'm not brave enough to do it on one I'm giving away! I have a few other things cooking as well :)

Thank you so much for having me on Follower Friday!

Lucy xx



Wow! Thanks Lucy!
Great Projects!

Our list of followers is starting to dwindle so

I'm still taking volunteers
