Twenty Question Tuesday

In your eyes, what’s Paradise?
A beautiful sunny day spent with my friends and family, and a barbecue :o) I might also throw a few palm trees in there too, and some snow!

Prized Possession:
I would have to say my lovely computer, as without it, none of what I do would be possible… apart from the sewing of course, but it keeps me in touch with the world on a daily basis!

Favourite medium to work with and why?
Fabric… I still love discovering new fabrics, colours and patterns, I can walk into a fabric shop looking for one thing, and end up coming out with armfuls of other fabric too, some linens and cottons can be particularly beautiful.

Flowers or chocolate?
Both if possible!

Who influenced you the most?
I think my parents, as they have always encouraged me to be happy and to love what I do and work hard.

Who would you most like to go to Dinner with?
Either Ryan Reynolds or Robert Pattinson, for obvious reasons!

Top Cat or Banana Splits?
Erm, I don’t think I used to watch either of these… how about The Poddington Peas!?

Today I wore:
Jeans, lots of layered tops (it was kinda chilly) and a knitted cardigan!

Do you have a favourite online {bead, craft or textile} place to shop and would recommend?
I would have to say Folksy… you always find such a wide variety of handmade products, it’s great for browsing and stumbling across new finds!

What inspired you to do what you do?
I was working in a textile-related environment, but not doing any of my own designs, when I could I escaped and began Charlotte Macey Textiles, I haven’t looked back for a second and love doing my ‘own’ work every day :o)

McDreamy or McSteamy?

If you could do anything else, what would it be?
Run a ski chalet!

Favourite item of clothing:
My navy woolly winter dress… so excited to wear it this year!

Best childhood memory:
All of them… summer holidays, birthdays, bonfire night, Christmas, we make a real ‘occasion’ out of all of the years events, and to be honest they’ve all been wonderful.

Most cringe-worthy moment:
Ahh I can’t think of one, but I’m quite a butter-fingers, so I’m always dropping things and knocking things over, eek.

Favourite holiday destination:

Which celebrity would you have as your best friend and why?
Hmm, probably someone really normal who I could just go for coffee with… perhaps America Ferrera, she’s brilliant in Ugly Betty.

Best “crafty” tip you can offer
Always make things that you like, you will have so much more interest in something that you enjoy doing.

What’s your Star sign?

What would you most like to see happen next?
I would like a bigger studio, one day a lovely shop, an apartment in a sparkly city, to continue doing what I love and for Charlotte Macey Textiles to grow… not asking for much eh! Hehe.

MMmmmmm, yes Ryan Reynolds.....such a cutie ~ saw him the other day in The Proposal....definitely a catch in my eyes too!

Sending my thanks to the lovely Charlotte at Charlotte Macey Textiles for her contribution....pop on over to her blog...her creations are so clean and crisp and a must for any kitchen! ;o)
