ask me ((almost)) anything

I'm almost back in my groove where I will start doing Favorite Things Friday & Handmade Monday posts.  If you're lucky, a bi-monthly What to Eat Wednesday post with my favorite recipes will be thrown in the mix as well. 

Until then...I get lots of questions via email and sometimes in comments regarding where I live, where I buy my fabric, how I "grew" my blog, how I learned to sew, etc. 

I thought it would be fun if you guys ((ahem. y'all)) put any question you are wanting to know in the comment form.  Anything you want to know! Ask away...but keep it clean ;)

 I'll work on getting them answered and do a post next week!

readyyyyy go! don't leave me hanging. this could be awkward haha
