Tell us a little about your blog and what you make:
My blog is a little peek into my life- lots of thrift store scores, pictures of all sorts of Etsy things the mailman brings me, and just general vintage-y goodness. You'll see some progress of new things I'm working on, too. I make pretty fabric accessories from vintage and vintage inspired prints.
What is your most used tool?
Hmmm. My seam ripper, for sure! I couldn't live without it. I just HATE crooked stitches and end up ripping stitches out of every single thing I make until they are just right.
What is your favorite part of the crafty process?
I'd say that feeling of satisfaction when you finish something and you love it. I'm also a big fan of the treasure hunt for that PERFECT piece of vintage fabric nobody else will have.
Name a skill you'd like to get better at:
Does staying organized in a small space count? Because I'm not super great at that. lol
Describe your ideal workspace: omg, it would be THIS room:
What is a project you want to tackle, but haven't taken the plunge yet?
That would be learning how to thread my serger (I've never used it because I'm scared to thread it- I'm telling you, it's a beast). Then I'd be able to start sewing stretchy fabrics.
What's the most important thing to you in the room that you're in right now?
Hmmm. That is really, really hard! If I'm counting a living thing, it would be my handsome cat, Finn. If not, I'd say it would be this: ponderandstitch.blogspot.com/2011/01/look-what-i-just-got.html It's just a really special little bit of France sent right to my doorstep.
One odd fact about yourself:
Every single time I finish ice cream, I absolutely have to have a glass of milk. I have no idea why, but ice cream gives me the most tremendous milk craving. This has been the case my entire life. Riveting, I know. lol
You are happiest when:
I'm in a creative, artistic space with someone I love. Tea, a good book, and kitties help, too. :)
