Having seven grandchildren, age 8 and under, you can bet I get plenty of chances to play a game of tag. Well, today I'm playing again! Andie from Andie Johnson Sews has tagged me to answer a few fun questions...
 I love a good game, don't you? Here goes...
     1.My favorite summertime beverage if I can't have a peach iced tea...I'll take a Diet Coke. (I'm addicted to Diet Coke.)
     2.Am I stalking a famous quilter? Every quilt that Rita, from Red Pepper Quilts, makes is fabulous in my book. I've been following her for several years now and her flickr pics are all in my favorites folder!
     3.My celebrity crush used to be Mel but I've switched to Denzel. 
     4.A favorite book of all time is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
     5.My dream car? Oh, easy one....Wouldn't I look good driving an Audi TT? A red one.
     6.What quilt or sewing project am I most proud of?  Well, my first thought is my unusual stick-to-it-ness on not quitting on those blasted Farmer's Wife Sampler blocks!! 80 down and 31 to go! I've got a fabulous quilter lined up to make it beautiful, so have a deadline to get the blocks set together...that makes me pretty excited!
     7.Do I have a secret quilting behavior? If I told you it wouldn't be a secret, now would it? It may or may not have something to do with Junior Mints.
     8.As far as magical powers go...If, with a twitch of my nose, all my blocks would suddenly be sewn together into a quilt that would be truly awesome! That's not my favorite step in creating a quilt....ready to move on by then!
     9.A favorite subject in school? Golly, it's been so long ago...I loved biology in high school. I thought maybe I'd be a scientist. But, then reality hit and I majored in Home Economics Education.
    10.My favorite Bible verse is the one I posted yesterday, Romans 15:13. Where would I be without hope?
My turn to tag....Linda, Flourishing Palms
                             Susan, PatchworknPlay
                             Cindy, Live a Colorful Life
                             Cindy, Hyacinth Quilt Designs
Play if you have time, but don't feel obligated. It's just for fun, so here's my fun questions:
1. Morning person or night person?
2. Do you save the selvages on fabric? If so, have you ever made anything with them?
3. Which color of fabric is most prominent in your stash?
4. What is the smallest scrap that you save?
5. What food do you crave?
6. How often do you change your sewing machine needle?
7. Pre-wash or right off the bolt?
8. What quilting project are you most proud of?
9. How many hours a day do you spend reading blogs? 
10. What's your favorite music to sew by?

Tag! You're it!
