I've been Tagged

I've been TAGGED BY Sylvia @ Sylvia's Stitches. See what happens when I go off for some fun. I come back and get tagged. Never been tagged before so I had to go see what Sylvia got me into. If you click on her blog name it will take you directly to her  cute blog. Thanks Sylvia.
So Here are the rules:
  • Every tagged person has to tell 11 things about themselves
  • The person who tagged you asked 11 questions, answer them
  • Ask 11 questions for the 11 blogs you're going to tag (the people you tag should have less than 200 followers) Well some of mine are over 200 but under 300
  • Mention the blog that tagged you, but don't tag them back.
Let's get started: 11 things about me

1.    I was born in the small town ofTrenton, Missouri. Almost to the Iowa line.
2.    I got to Texas as fast as I could via Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska.
3.    I have been married 34 years and we have one beautiful loving daughter and a 16 year old Sheltie named Dexter
4.    I started taking Jazz and Flamenco dance classes in my late 20's and continued to dance until my daughter turned 2.
5.    Have been a member of a book club for 15 1/2years. I became the unofficial secretary/photographer after sending out a review of the first meeting in 1997

6.    Love photography and share it with my friends and family. The good, the bad and the sometimes ugly pictures.

7.    I learned to sew doll clothes and simply tank top from my Othermom (my grandmother). 
8.    I think as I've gotten older I have become ADHD. LOL
9.    My Husband bought me my first sewing machine for our 1st Christmas.
10. Didn't try my hand at quilting until 2003 when I made my daughters 1st quilt for waterpolo when she was in high school
11. Thanks to my daughter I have become a Fighting Texas Aggie Fan. Whoop

Here are the 11 questions I was asked and my answers:

  1. What is your favorite craft/hobby? Reading Photography and quilting. I'm probably best at the reading part. ;o)
  2. How long have you been into your hobby/crafts?  I've loved to read since I first learn to read. Photography I took up in high school and quilting I started learning about I guess 9 years ago but it's been a slow process.
  3. Do you have a special room or designated place to do your hobby? If so, what do you call this space? I use one of our spare bedrooms as my Office/Sewing/Craft Room
  4. What time of day to you craft?  Usually I start after 8pm and quit between 11pm and 2am
  5. What is your favorite tool for crafty/hobby? Not sure I really have one. Sewing machine ....
  6. What was your last purchased tool? Not really a tool but I bought the extention table for my Viking Saphire
  7. What would you purchase if money were no object? mmm  long arm, and a serger... I think my list could be endless.
  8. If you could live anywhere, where would you live? Closer to the Texas Hill Country but actually I think I'm happy where I am.
  9. What is your favorite season? Spring with all the color popping 
  10. What is your favorite TV show? Just one? ;o) Castle 
  11. Do you like sports? What's your favorite sport? I always liked baseball when I played but don't watch it on TV. Water polo became my favorite spot when my daughter started playing . But Texas A&M football is I guess my fav overall. 
Here's my 11 questions for the people I have tagged:
  1. What time of the day or evening do you do most of your crafting? 
  2. If money was not a concern, what would be the next machine or toy you would buy for your craft?
