Questions from Elizabeth
1. Would you call yourself an eclectic person? Absolutely! I like so many things from so many places, cultures and styles.

2. Do you prefer cloths with dark undertones or bright? I would have to say it depends on my mood. I am extremely attracted to bright colors right now when choosing quilting fabrics.

3. Would you call yourself an optimist, or a pessimist, or neither? I would say that I'm an optimist. I try hard to find something good in all things.

4. What is your favorite summer treat? All of the fruits of summer! I love all the freshness of the fruits and veggies! I'm also addicted to ice cream. :)

5. Beach or mountains? ooh, that's a hard one...but I guess if I had to choose I love the water. I grew up in a sea side town and really receive a lot of stress relief from being around the water.

6. Your in line waiting to take the SAT and a random stranger asks to borrow you phone. What would you do? I say I'm uncomfortable having random people using my phone and ask if it's an emergency.

7. What is more practical information for the public to know? Health or how a nuclear reactor works? I think Health.

8. Do you think trees have a personality to them? What would you say the personalities of a pine, a maple, and a willow? I do think they have a personality. Pines are strong and tall. Maples are more sheltering and comforting. And willows...what can I say about willows... I love them, they seem somewhat forelorn and dramatic.

9. What is something that fascinates you most? Watching my children and observing their interactions and relationships.

10. What kind(s) of music do you prefer to listen to? Since I was a teen in the 80's I do love 80's music, but lately I've been listening to folk or celtic music a lot and really enjoy it!

11. How fast of a reader would you call yourself? I am not a fast reader. But when I read I really like to get into the story and savor the moments. So taking my time is just fine with me. :)
