seven things

March 12th, 2008

I may be gone on and off from this little blog for a few weeks.  I need to spend my time sewing (not blogging) for this sale.  So, I’ll leave you with 7 random things about me.  Christine from sewchristine tagged me with the 7 things meme and though I’m still on the fence about these meme things (brings back a crazy chain letter obsession I had in fifth grade) I thought what the hell.

1. I’ve been to Syria

2. I only have one bobbin

3. when I use scissors my jaw moves up and down

4. I am the youngest of six

5. I love a good turkish breakfast

6. I majored in philosophy

7.  I made this cake and it was much better than a ding dong.

there are rules to this whole thing and here they are:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. 2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. 4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So I am tagging

1. shiso mama

2. hyena in petticoats

3. five green acres

4. write mama write

5. beetlegirl design

6. domesticali

7. dear meagan

    Oooh… you’re the first person I’ve met that’s also been to Syria! Where did you go? did you enjoy it? I thought it was spectacular.
    BTW, I love your drawstring bags for the dump trucks.

    One bobbin??! Thanks for the tag.

  3. My husband moves his jaw up and down when he feeds our baby. HE CAN’T STOP! My mom says I did the scissors thing when I was a kid.

    And I only have three bobbins, which is not as few as you but I think it would still make most people gasp. : )

    Happy sewing…we will miss you!

  5. I’m amazed that you only have one bobbin! I am this close to asking the make of your machine, so I can send you a pack – seriously, you won’t know yourself……

    Thanks for the tag, though be warned that I am notoriously slow at responding to these things….!

    Syria, now I cannot beat that for an exotic fact!

  7. Toni says:

    one bobbin! well, i shouldn’t sound so shocked because i have several bobbins but only USE one. i hate changing thread color so 99 percent of all my things are sewn with the same neutral thread. best wishes on your upcoming sale, i’m positive you’ll be a huge success!

  8. meg says:

    I sew everything with white thread. Unimaginative and lazy or simple and chic, pick one. I own a simple Kenmore machine and they don’t sell the bobbins at Joann’s–that is my lame excuse. With 2 kids in tow, I’m a one stop shopper all the way.

    That cake looks so good! My son’s b-day is this week and I might make that for him, so thanks for the idea! I had no idea what I was going to do this year. I hope you get lots of work done for your show!

  10. Allison says:

    Wow, one bobbin! That sounds like me. Things got a bit grim when the bobbin winder on my old machine stopped working!

  11. shisomama says:

    sorry i’ve been so slow at responding. i’m so boring, it’s taking me a while to come up with good ones!

  12. […] long ago, Meg tagged me for this 7 Things Meme. What’s a Meme? Not exactly sure, but gather that it’s kind of like a game of Blog Tag. […]
