Spring Thyme Blog Hop Continues!!!!!
Up next is Debbie Busby from Wooden Spool Designs! How cool is it that she was married on the 1st day of spring! What a neat anniversary date!! Here is her Q & A!!!
Q & A
Tell us briefly about yourself… Hey everybody…. I’m Debbie Busby of Wooden Spool Designs. I’ve lived in the Northwest my whole life and love living here. I’ve been married for 39 years; have two married children, 6 adorable grandchildren, and two labs.
Life is always busy around here and each day is filled with something new!!! In other words…there is NEVER A DULL MOMENT!!!
Favorite medium to work in? WOOL!!!! My absolute favorite medium to work with is 100%wool. Hand dyed wool. I dye my own wool and love seeing the changes the wool goes through and the transformation it takes during the dying process.
What inspires you? My mom inspired me to start my business which I will always be grateful for. Everyday things that I see, the shapes and colors of the different seasons, spending time in the quiet late nights at my sewing table is my favorite time to create.
I am also inspired by my family, friends, and all the other wonderful people who LOVE to work with wool!! There is nothing more inspiring than to be around others who love to stitch with wool!!
Indispensable tool? Fortunately not many tools are required for wool applique and would not be possible without a needle. I use Piecemaker #8 embroidery needles but always tell my students that there is really NO WRONG needle. Use what you like….what you can thread…..and make sure you have an extra!! (I always lose mine)!!
Your design style in 3 words? Heartwarming, Folksy, Whimsical
On the drawing board? I seem to never be able to stitch faster than the list of projects I have lined up!! Spring Quilt Market is coming up in May so I am working on new designs!!
You collect? My favorite things to collect are old buttons in jars, tomato pincushions, and Ironstone pitchers. I love old rustic style things!!
On your bucket list? I would love to take a fall trip to the New England States!!!
