6. I usually choose my own, but if I love the combination of a kit I occasionally will buy it.

7: I don't like things that are TOO easy because then I feel like I didn't really create anything. But, since I am a beginner I need things to be clearly explained with pictures. If they are I can try something a bit more challenging, but I still haven't done Y seams! hehe

8: And finally..... Thank you for a fun give away! And can we see more of Emma on the blog :)

Thank you!

5.Fall and winter holidays.
6.Choose fabrics and patterns myself. Even in my newbie-ness, I feel in more control.
7. I like to have a monster growing in the background where I can chip away at it, while having little projects going on in the forefront. You know, for those small victory/finishing warm fuzzy feelings that inspire me to chip away more at the monsters in the closet!
8. I wish there were more closed captioned videos on the internet. Being deaf, the blog pictorial/tutorials are a god send. But only a handful of tutorial videos are closed captioned. Just trying to get the word out (pun intended).

1: Curtains and Valances
2: Traditional fabrics
3: No, I don't, I am a great make your own, but am not good at the patterns, don't even own any patterns. I love to make my curtains and things by myself.
4: Bright and Bold
5: OH yes, I sew all yr. but give gifts for all occasions, like house-warmings, birthdays, and especially X-mas.
6: I choose my own fabric, measure my window, and just have a great since of pride when I give the finished product as a gift.
7: Since I am a stay-at home mom, taxi-cab driver for my kids, waitress and cook at my home kitchen, everything has to be quick and easy.
8: I love to redecorate, rearrange the rooms, and one of the simplist ways to do this cost effective is to change the curtains, and I have passed this love on to my boys, so they are always changing their rooms. So I do alot of sewing to make our house look different all the time. I try to find the fabrics on sale, it's so easy to make a piecs of fabric into a curtain, and it just totally changes the look!
Thanks for letting me express my love for sewing and redecorating.

My kind of giveaway!!

1. My favorite item to sew is children's clothing.
2. My favorite style of fabric is whimsical.
3. I don't have a favorite fabric or pattern designer. I am a fabric-a-holic. I love all fabric!
4. I love to use bright colors.
5. I like to sew for the holidays, especially Christmas.
6. I don't buy kits. I usually try to decide what I want to make, and them browse around until I find the right pattern and fabric.
7. I love an easy project, but occasionally I really enjoy the challenge of creating something a little more detailed.
8. I am a 54 year old seamstress. I have been making my own clothes for about 40 years. (not all of them) The past few years I made and sold some children't clothing locally. I must have a creative outlet, and sewing seems to be it.
Thanks for the giveaway.
