Follower Friday - Kelli!

Phew, I think life is finally starting to settle back into "normal"

After a hiatus last week
we're back in action now with


Kelli!

Specs:
Name:  Kelli
Family:  My loving husband, two sweet kiddos and our dog and cat.

Location:  North Central Florida
Blog:  www.smalltownstitcher.blogspot.com
Flickr:  I’m Kelli W or http://www.flickr.com/photos/23145638@N08/
Twitter:  not yet…I’m a hold out…
Etsy:  not yet…I’m too swamped with fun projects to get anything put in my empty shop!!

Day job:  Stay-at-home Mom and PTO Co-Chair J
Dream job:  just what I’m doing—only with more hours in the day so I could get more done!

What are you working on now?  A myriad of things—I’m finishing up a do. Good stitches quilt, a Christmas gift (from last year!) for my sister, a few Fall skirts and dresses for me and my cutie 8-yr-old and planning who will get the annual Christmas gift quilt from me this year.  I pick one person in my family each year to get a quilt for Christmas.  I like to spread the love slowly! 


Favorites:
Place:  The beach
Movie:  It depends on my mood.  I do love a good romantic comedy, but I’m just as apt to sit down and watch a spy thriller or action movie.  As long as there’s a good story, I’ll tune in. 
Food:  This one is hard to narrow down because I LOVE food.  That’s why I run so much!  But, for today, I’d narrow it down to potatoes, cheese, dark chocolate and steak!  Yum!
Way to spend a Friday night:  Somewhere with my husband and kiddos—whether it’s at a football game or home on the couch watching TV.  I love to be surrounded by the people I love best!

Fabric line:  I don’t have a favorite line—I usually pick out specific pieces in lines that I like best.
Color:  Yellow, aqua or hot pink
Designer:  I love the way both Anna Maria Horner and Amy Butler use both color and design.  I love Tanya Whelan’s romantic lines, and I love Ann Kelle’s use of color and geometric lines!

Project completed by you:  I don’t know if I have a favorite project because I love each (well mostly) one when I’m working on it, but lately I’ve loved the quilt I made for my son’s kindergarten teacher last spring and the big pillow I made for our aging dog.






Project when you need a quick finish:  I love to work on simple clothing when I need a quick finish.  A skirt for my daughter, some iron-on design cut on my Silhouette to a shirt or even a quick refashion…





Least Favorites:
Color:  Much to my daughter’s dismay, I’m going to say purple.  I don’t hate it, I’m just not drawn to it.  Much to my dismay, she’d wear purple every day if I didn’t offer other suggestions!  ;)

Fabric line:  There’s usually one or two fabrics in every line that I’m not fond of, but I can’t think of any line that I really just hate all of.  Although I will say I’m not a huge fan of novelty prints, generally speaking…

Project completed by you—Okay, let’s be real…If I don’t love it, it probably doesn’t get finished.  And if it doesn’t get finished, it’s probably not getting photographed for the blog.  ;)  So I’ve got nothing here for ya!
