124 how much total time did you spend on quilting activities in the last 12 months? 1200 hours.
125 what does the quilting world need that it doesn't have? If I knew I could be a millionaire…maybe a sewing machine with an expandable arm to convert (with seamless push-button convenience, of course) from normal domestic sewing to a quilting machine.
126 what is your favorite part about quilting? Dreaming, designing…

131 In terms of the stereotypical quilter, how are you the same? I hoard fabric for that “someday” quilt… love to spend time in quilt shops
132 In terms of the stereotypical quilter, how are you different? I don’t feel the need to follow current quilt trends.
133 If you had more time, what quilting thing would you do that you aren't doing already? Finish quilts, make more.
134 If you won the lottery, and had to spend it all one quilting thing, what would you get? A maid and a cook so that I could spend more time sewing.
135 If you lost the lottery, and had to give up everything but one thing, what would you keep. My sewing machine.

Shelina says she'll create part three someday, I'll be waiting eagerly.

Best wishes for lots of stitches...
Life is Good!

I am really behind reading posts. Thanks so much for completing the Quilting Meme. I'm glad that you included explanations for your questions. Thats so cool that you have so many autographs. Are they on slips of paper, a book or fabric? I have an old little autograph book that I need to find so I can collect autographs. My lone autograph is on a piece of fabric.
I really like the idea of hiring out the cooking and cleaning responsibilities!
I forgot I was going to do a part three. I'l have to think of some questions.
