I've been Tagged

By Kelly at Charming Chatter. It's part of the Charming Girls' Quilt Club activities for the month of July and we get an extra entry in the giveaway at the end of the month for playing along. I don't normally do "tags." But since I voluntarily joined this club, and all members are being tagged, I am responding.
1. My favorite fabric is:
My favorite fabric is always the last piece I purchased. Call me fickle, but I love all of them when I buy them, until another one catches my fancy and I buy it.
2. The pattern I'm most looking forward to sewing is:
The dress for my son's wedding next month. I have narrowed my choices down to two patterns. The wedding is scheduled for the end of August, and is an outdoor wedding, so it will be hot, hot, hot. I just have to figure out which of the two patterns will be the coolest temperature wise.
3. The food that is my weakness:
Is ice cream. Plain old vanilla ice cream. Yeah, that may seem boring to some of you Ben & Jerry fans, but it's plain old vanilla for me. That way, whatever my mood, I can dress it up with toppings. My favorite topping? Ever tried vanilla ice cream smothered in Rice Krispies or Corn Flakes? YUM!!!!!!!
4. If I knew I couldn't fail, I'd:
Move to Kansas to be closer to my sister, so we could start a quilt shop in the small college town where she lives. Then we could design our own fabric lines and make our own patterns.
5. The Best "Life" Advice I know is:
Watch what words come out of your mouth; you never know when you'll have to eat them. And some words are easier to swallow than others.
Thanks to Kelly at Charming Chatter for hosting this quilt club. She is making it fun for all of us.

G'morn ~ TY for popping over to my post ... yes, the hanging tomatoes are wonderful, they produce as well as inground planted tomatoes & are sort of decorative/topic of conversation additions. You may put any tomato plant you wish in ... you must fertilize weekly & every day add 1 gallon of water ... that's it. This is our 3rd year & we've really enjoyed the fruits of the harvest. TY for asking. TTFN~ Marydon

Pssst! Don't forget our giveaway.
