I have 2 Vikings, a singer featherweight, and a Gammill. And yes, you can get Tim Tams here in the US. Target has them made by Pepperidge Farms, and you can order them from Amazon, too.
Love the quilt! I use tans and taupe together also. I like to use a few "almost" white pieces to give it a little sparkle.
I love those floral cutters. Olfa should do more of those.
I have a fishing tackle box that I have used for years to store, Velcro, hook & eyes, and odd ball things I might need someday.

I usually have the most time to quilt on the weekends and nights hubbie works late.
I am 1/4 Irish and have red hair. I'd love to win some fabric.
I am quilting a queen size Irish Chain for a customer. I also have a cosmetic bag to make for my daughter's birthday.
I love all your patterns, but something like Crush where the possibilities are endless would be great.
A sampler quilt would be fun.

My first sewing project was an apron that I probably made for 4-H. I gave it to my grandmother for a Christmas gift. She never used it of course and keep it with my name on it. After she passed away it was given back to me.
I would use option 1 and use the large typewriter print for the back.
There would be a wonderful addition to a newly started stash of orchid.
In my studio/family room. It's a large room (24' X 24') over our garage in a little Illinois town about 1/2 an hour from the Mississippi River.
My husband bought me a Pheasant Hill by Kansas City Troubles jelly roll for my b-day last summer. I have been waiting for just the right pattern to use it. I just might have found the right one.
Jade Heritage has my vote.

I love bags that go over the shoulder with A LOT of pockets.
I wish I had a bee buddy. My mom always loved to sew, now she is just too busy and I work full time. I am about to start an Irish chain quilt for my daughter in white and dark teal. It will be a modern look for a traditional pattern.
Swoon and orange!

I love the cherry pie pattern and several of your older patterns that I can't seem to find time for. Never enough hours in a day. Your fabrics are gorgeous as always too.

I don't mind turnstiles, but I hate revolving doors. Tried to get in one with a large purse and it got caught and it stopped the door. I'm surprised nothing in the bag broke.
My favorite winter memory is sledding at my grandfather's farm with my aunt who is a Catholic nun. It is quite a sight to see a nun sledding with her habit flying out behind her!
My favorite summer recipe is this pasta salad. 16 oz pasta (cooked and drained) add fresh diced tomato, cucumber, broccoli, chopped onion, etc. dressing: 1 cup white vinegar, 1 and 1/2 cups sugar, and 2 teas, yellow mustard. Mix and pour over pasta and veggies. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate over night. This is easy to make, keeps well and can sit out at a potluck.

When my oldest daughter left for college I cried for days. I felt so lost. It gets easier with each child. My youngest is now in college and I know she won't be living at home again. At least I don't think she will. Anyway, you'll be fine and so will she.
Happy Birthday! I love the low volume quilts especially the colors in the one for your nephew. I'll be 50 next year. I should start thinking about making myself a quilt for that milestone. I sure it will be here before I know it.
