What fun!

Hey there!
Thank you, Annemarie for posting about it on your Blog and tempting me with the thrill of it all!

I'm Tanya and design under The Sampler Girl. I live in VA, my homestate. I've been married for 11 years and have two boys; Ben who will be 8 in June, and Zack, who is nearly 4 months old. SO I don't have big blocks of stitching time right now but I make do here and there. I'm a night owl therefore I get most my designing and stitching done when the moon is out! I also love to read and knit so shuffle free time back and forth. Oh and I adore a good cookbook so well, we eat well :)

Some of my favorite designers include BLACKBIRD DESIGNS, HOMESPUN ELEGANCE, BRIGHTNEEDLE, LITTLE BY LITTLE, EWE AND EYE, SHEPHERD'S BUSH, LITTLE HOUSE NEEDLEWORKS to name a few. I love houses and alphabets and designs that have an antique-style overall. I like Quaker designs too! I like sweet sayings but short and sweet ones ~ nothing corny. Ha!

Oh goodness, this is tough ~ I don't know if I want to concentrate on a theme ~ perhaps just let the stitcher know my preferences and go from there? I don't like mythical things, geometric, fairies, angels, cartoony, cutesy or seasonal stuff. I don't know about finishing yet ~ maybe a quilt or small little pillows. It all depends on how the squares all flow together.

I love reading about your little boys! It makes me wish mine weren't almost grown up! Cool beans being a designer!
