I've been tagged !

Ok so I guess I missed all the tagging going on but opened my email yesterday to discover I had been tagged by Marjorie and I guess the way this is played is I have to answer her questions then tag others so lets get to the questions first.
 1. What got you started sewing/quilting?
  I would have to say my Mom as she was always sewing when we were young.

2. How long have you been crafting?
  Ever since I was knee high to a grass hopper  .

3. Where did you travel to this year?
 The farthest I have traveled this year would just be to the Annapolis Valley , no wait I went to PEI but hey although that is another province it is just a short boat ride away , pretty sad that I have not been on any vacations to speak of .

4. What is your favorite foreign food?
  My favorite foreign food would be pizza .

5. Have you ever been to New Brunswick, Canada?
 Every year I believe on our way home from PEI .

6. What is your favorite on line fabric shop?
 I don't really have one as I am not an online shopper .

7. What TV show do you like; if any?
  That's tough , I am not a real TV fan but Seinfeld is still a favorite . They crack me up.

8. Who has been a big influence in your crafting life?
  My biggest influence in my crafting life would be my Mom and my grandmother(my Dad's Mother ) , both inspired me to sew.

9. Do you like working outside/gardening ?
 I love to garden but don't have as large a garden as I once did .

10. What is your favorite season and why?
 My favorite season would be fall , mostly because of the incredible color we enjoy but right now I am really enjoying our spring weather after a long winter :-)

11. What is the one crafty item you really want to make one day?
    I have so many projects I would like to make it would take me all day to list them but on the top of the list is to become really good at thread painting.

So now I must tag others and here are my questions for those people.
 1. Why did you start blogging?
 2.How long have you been quilting?
 3. What project have you made that you are most proud of ?
 4. What  other country have you visited and when ?
5. What is your favorite color and why?
6. Are you an animal lover and if so what is your favorite animal ?
7. Other than sewing / quilting what other craft do you love ?
 8. What is your favorite all time book ?
 9. If you could go anywhere in the world where would you most like to visit?
 10. What is your favorite comfort food ?
 11. Who influenced you most in your life?

Now for those who will be  tagged .

 Have fun with this and don't feel obligated to do it but it is fun . 
 Oh an update on our auction last night , I came home a lot richer than I thought as I was not successful in winning any of the bids but quess what , we made $196 , isn't that great :-) 
 It is an incredible day here , sunny and down right hot , Mother Nature has forgotten it is March , she can be so sweet sometimes , enjoy your day I know I will,
hugs Sheila
