Twenty Question Tuesday

In your eyes, what’s Paradise?
Paradise would be to be content at any one time, just doing what I am doing at that particular moment. I’m very unsettled.

Prized Possession
I don’t have one which makes me wonder why I don’t. Very odd. I’ll have to think on it.

Favourite medium to work with and why?
Emulsion. Dulux is the best to paint with, I use it for my Half an Acre wooden fish. It comes in a million colours and goes on smoothly and evenly. Very satisfying.

Flowers or chocolate?

Who influenced you the most?
My dad. He brought me up to think that I could do anything if I put my mind to it.

Who would you most like to go to dinner with?
A great friend. I don’t have any aspirations for eating with famous people. What on earth would I say?

Top Cat or Banana Splits?
Top Cat.

Today I wore:
Red/orange stripy pyjama trousers, blue/white stripy top, red/white fuzzy socks, Uggs and a black/white stripy fleece. Stripes make me feel cosy and I didn’t need to go out! I never get dressed when I don’t need to leave the house.

Do you have a favourite online {bead, craft or textile} place to shop and would recommend
Fabric Rehab ~ not really a place for rehabilitation, more a place of addiction!

What inspired you to do what you do?
I don’t know, it just happened.

McDreamy or McSteamy?
I’m not mad on either of them BUT if I HAD to, you know last man on earth, then McDreamy would have to do.  Neither of them are exactly ugly, eh?!

If you could do anything else, what would it be?
Run a boutique bed and breakfast with attached studio, opening out onto the waterfront. In summer I would fling the doors open to my studio chat to fellow arty types. People would come especially to see me and exclaim “So, you are The Bunny Maker, it’s so nice to meet you at last!”.

Favourite item of clothing
An old white Baja ‘hippy top’ I’ve had for over 20 years. Strangely enough it is still white and NOT that tatty. It’s soft and lovely and I wear it when I feel down.

Best childhood memory
I don’t have any. Sorry. Now I’m wondering why.

Most cringe-worthy moment
Oh good grief! Many, many, many. I’m hopeless socially!

Favourite holiday destination
Canyonlands National Park. USA. I had the nicest shower and cup of coffee after many days hiking at The Needles Outpost campsite. I spent my honeymoon there, all dirty and dusty. It was lovely. I doubt I’m fit enough now though, to do all that walking malarkey.

Which celebrity would you have as your best friend and why
Derren Brown. Fascinating.

Best “crafty” tip you can offer
Don’t buy cheap embroidery threads from Ebay – they ALWAYS split and you end up with about 30 packs which you then have to tolerate using until all gone. Yes, I’m still going through them!!!

What’s your Star sign?

What would you most like to see happen next?
A huge company wants to order 30,000 custom designed sock bunnies which then leads to total world domination.

My thanks to the gorgeous Anna at The Bunny Maker who, in her own words, is "a confuzzled mother of three boys, maker of sock bunnies, Thnakes and other soft monstery things for Widget and Friends. Designer and artist behind Half an Acre and creator of The Handmade Bunny, struggling to combine motherhood and a kitchen table business. Come on in and join the madness!"

So why don't you pop on over and share some of the fun that's on offer.....oh! and take a cuppa with you, you might be a while! ;o)
