Becky Goldsmith 5 Questions
1. When you get an hour all to yourself what do you do?
That almost never happens but when it does, depending on the time of day it is I do the following:
Catch up on reading my favorite blogs
Read a book
Lately I’ve been watching episodes of Battlestar Galactica (the new one) while appliqueing
2. What does your family think about your quilting business?
They love it! Only my husband has known me before I was a quilter—my sons came of age after Linda and I started Piece O’ Cake. Now my boys are grown and married. One of my DILs, is my office manager. Their youngest son, who is 2 1/2 now, has lately started ‘filling orders’ when he’s here and his mom is working. He’s busy and we have to watch what he picks up, and pay attention to where he puts it.
I am lucky that my family has always supported my efforts, and that they are always willing to help when needed.
3. What big project are you working on now or next, and do you have pictures?Preview
I have a new pattern that will work well as a block of the month going right now. I wish I could share pictures, but it’s a secret for now.
4. What is on your “bucket” list? What do you want to be known/remembered for?
I want to travel more for fun, not work.
I plan on making quilts that don’t necessarily look like ‘me’. I have several ideas but I need to begin before I know how they will turn out.
I want to be a better photographer.
In quilting, I’d like to be remembered for the patterns that I have drawn and for the instructions that I have written that help others make the quilts that they want to make.
In life, I want to be remembered as someone who was a good person. Every day I try to do my best to make that true.
5. Where do you get your quilting/appliqué inspiration?
Everywhere. I pay attention to what I see knowing that inspiration can come from anywhere, at any time.
