TAST Interview

Sharon B of Pintangle is running a series of interviews with TAST followers. This is a fantastic way to read more about how fellow followers take to 'needle 'n thread', what makes them 'tick' and learn from their wisdom.

I would like to thank Sharon for helping us to learn from each other and share our joy of needlework.

Today my interview was posted. Read it here.

Previous interviews:
Annet of FatQuarter.
Renee of Hand Stitched Treasures
Angela of Princess Bubbles Creates
Maureen of CrazyQstitcher

The cherries are beginning to open their buds and I have hung up my seasonal crazy quilt.

so enjoyed reading your interview with Sharon and seeing more of your stitchery, have booked a hotel for FOQ going for 3 days this year.

Thank you for taking the time to read the interview.
Good to hear you are planning a 3-day stay at FOQ - I wish I were, but alas, as long as I have nursing duties, probably no trip....

Janie said...

Great interview, Queenie. Your work is always beautiful and your seasonal crazy quilt is gorgeous.

Queeniepatch said...

I think it is great to read the different interviews and compare the answers.

It was lovely to read the interview about you, Carin! I've really enjoyed seeing all your wonderful stitching over the last few years. I always look forward to seeing your latest ideas!
Thank you for the links to the other interviews too, as I didn't have time to read them when Sharon issued them, and couldn't find my way back later!
Thank too, for writing your lovely blog!

Thank you Barbara for your kind words. I think anyone who is into sewing could ask themselves Sharons's questions - I found I had to take a look at myself and my approach to embroidery and quilting, how I have worked in the past and what aI would like to achieve in the future.
Pintangle has a wealth of information and inspiration. A daily visit is not a bad idea!

Annet said...

I enjoyed reading the interview, thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Queeniepatch said...

I have learned so much at Pintangle, from Sharon and from others, and I felt it a great honor to be interviewed. While answering the questions I had to reflect on how and why I work the way I do.

Renee said...

I enjoyed reading your interview! You were working on your Kafferepet quilt when I discovered your blog through TAST and WIPW, and I was hooked. It is a pleasure to follow your creative adventures. My Winter/Christmas Wall Quilt may be receiving some attention thanks to your 10-minute rule. (I cannot wait to see it finished, but dread the thought of embroidering one more snowflake - lol!) Thank you for the great interview!

Queeniepatch said...

I have so much to be grateful for! Sharon opened a new door into the world of needlework and needleworkers. This interview also made me think hard about my own world and how I can improve it and what I should rectify.
The 'stitch for a short time' rule is surprisingly effective, and it is SO rewarding to see progress - as you well know with your log books and statistics!
Let's continue to share and encourage each other, my friend.

I enjoyed reading your interview too and re visiting some of your past work.

Queeniepatch said...

While answering the questions I had to go over my past work, too.
I was surprised to see some of the stumpwork portraits that I had almost forgotten!
