Better Late than.... a little insight!

Life has been hectic and busy, but its like that for lots of us.
Gardening, esp now the weather is better,
 homeschooling activities and excursions.
Lots of life, Family and grandkids
 and some sewing.
 That  has been me for the last few months.
 A few weeks ago I was tagged to share and promplty forgot
 as time slipped away...
 But thought I would honor the tag and 
answer some of Beautiful Fee's Questions.
 The purpose of the tag is a blog hop for each blogger
 to tell their readers a little more about their life as a
creative person and what makes them tick,
so today you'll get a little more insight about me




Me: Dawn.

 and yes I am getting my silly on with Fee
 It was a fun week in Melbourne together.
 And having a laugh is what we needed too.

 What am I working on right now? 
 I am trying to get rid of my UFO pile.
 I seem to leave things possibly because I can't find the right fabric
 to finish it or just because of boredom.
 Whatever is the reason I can't always remember 
why but now I am on a Finish it phase.
 I am also working on some patterns for upcoming retreats and magazines.

How long does it take to create a project?
 If I have all the materials and the motivation I can get onto it and have it made
 quite quickly. Pattern writing is a pet hate of mine.


What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?
I am loving doing some EPP atm, 
I also love working on stash fabrics too. 
I have a smallish stash but still way too much,
 so am trying to find patterns like an
 Around the World and also a Granny Squares Quilt.

 
How does my creative process work?
  If I am schooling my girls or don't have time to go into
my sewing room and sew it straight away I may just
write it down and draw what I am thinking.
 This sometimes works and sometimes I think 
"what was I actually thinking this is wrong"!



How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
 I am usually not thinking about anything and an idea pops into my head
I can be just day dreaming or a word turns into a item or quilt...
 My girls love craft and inspire me all the time,
 they are so creative I am amazed at what they think of.

What is my signature style?
Not a 100% sure of my style,
possibly classic, pretty English meets classic, modern fun...
 What do you think my style is?   


 What is my favorite time of day?
Mornings are my favorite, even though I am a night owl too.
 But first thing in the morning, sitting in the quiet,
a cup of tea in my china cup with my bible and devotions.
Just taking in the beauty of creation.
 I love sitting outside in the warmer months enjoying the birds chirping
and the sun streaming through the garden.BLISS!

 Hope this has given a little more insight
 into the creativity in the house of Sweet as Cinnamon.

Not tagging anyone but feel free to leave a comment and your blog address
 so we can visit you and learn a little insight.

Hugs Dawn x x

I like the Australian version better than ours. I did one on Sept. 8, but I admire your ability to be short and succinct! I don't think that's a talent of mine. I love your EPP.
