I’m a receipient of the Liebster Award


It’s wonderful to have Tracy at nominated me for the Liebster Award.  I’d like to thank you for nominating me and taking time to visit my blog. This is so kind of you and I gladly accept it.

 Regina Gee’s Place

My answers to Tracy’s questions:

1.  Do you have a current challenge you are hoping to master to improve your sewing? Yes, I have a current challenge that I am hoping to master to improve my sewing. At this moment I am using a smaller size pattern that needs to be enlarged substantially. The overlay needs to be lengthened and enlarged as well as drafting a sleeve.

 2.  What is your motivation for sewing? My motivation for sewing comes with the desire to improve techniques and meet my wardrobe needs.

 3.  What do you like to sew best? I enjoy sewing suits for church as it gives me opportunities to be creative and use different skills.

 4.  Do you have a favorite pattern company? Once I saw this question it brought to memory the fact that for some reason, I’ve always thought that Butterick makes the prettier patterns. Now, in this phase of life and sewing more often I don’t think I have a favorite.

 5.  How many blogs do you read regularly? Now that I receive the daily feed from Bloglovin, there are very few blogs that I do not read.  I do see them all, but I visit at least 15-20 daily.

I would like to ask my nominees these questions:

 1. Do you take notes while working on your sewing projects?

2. Which sewing technique would you love to master?

3. What is your favorite sewing machine?

4. What sewing tip would you share with someone who’s new to sewing?

5. Do you believe that it is important for each of us to teach at least one more person the craft?

 Sew on,
