I would like to thank Alison Boulton over at Thread-Headed Snippet for awarding me the Versatile Blogger award! Alison is a fellow Southern blogger and has the most enlightening and humorous blog about historical sewing I have encountered to date! Thank you again for choosing my blog as one of your favorites!
Rules- Share 7 things about yourself:
1. I live on a farm. Our current four legged family members include 2 horses, 3 llamas, 6 hens, 2 ducks, 3 dogs (4 if you count the neighbor dog who spends 95% of her time here), 4 cats, and one bunny rabbit!
2. I am a stay at home mom. I have a husband and preschool age daughter.
3. My claim to fame/shame is when I was 19 I rearranged the furniture in a historic home I was the costumed interpreter for. Because the way they had it did not make historical sense and because I was YOUNG AND STUPID! Fortunately, everyone had a laugh about it and I learned a very important lesson that day. Never presume to know everything. This is a lesson that continues with me today.
4. I wanted to be a veterinarian. However after college A&P, I changed my major to history and became a vegetarian! Yikes!
5. I wear my corset while sewing. It helps reduce the blood flow to my brain which in turn reduces the urge to second guess myself and commence to ripping apart everything I just spent hours putting together (because it really was just fine the way I made it the first time).
6. I would not like to have lived back then. Really.
7. I am Southern to the core. (No, not like the “Hell ya! The South will rise again!” kind of Southern.) Think Steel Magnolias. Being Southern carries with it a distinct way of thinking, behaving, and interacting with others. And no, I do not think the world would be a better place if the South had won the war.
