I've Been Tagged! Watch Out!

I'm playing along with a little game of "Tag You're It"! Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful tagged me.  I thought it sounded like fun and is a good way to get to know a little bit more about someone and share a little something about yourself! 
Answer some questions. Post some questions. Tag some people. It's an 11-11-11 plan (answer 11 questions, "tag" 11 bloggers, ask 11 questions).

Jenny's questions to me are:

1.) What is your favorite snack? 
Cheese and crackers
2.) Besides quilting what your next favorite hobby?
Gardening - I have fairly large gardens, which have taken a bit of a back seat to quilting lately.
3.) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I pretty much love were I live - on the shores of Cayuga Lake in the fingerlakes region of NY. Although I wouldn't mind some place south for January and February! :)
4.) Where does your inspiration come from?
I'm not sure where is doesn't come from! Certainly the internet and all the wonderful blogs, but it can also come from my drive to work.
5.) How much fabric are you hoarding right now?
Oh dear, that is a scary question. I inherited my mom's enormous stash and I although I have used a lot of it, I keep adding to it. Here is a picture of my attempt to organize some of it! But trust me when I say there is much, much more!
6.) Do you where makeup, and if you do, how often do you put it on?
I do wear some makeup most days, eyeliner, blush and lipstick (when I remember).  I always wear it to work, but if I'm just home on the weekend I don't wear any. I never put it on more than once a day.

7.) What is your favorite part of the quilting process?
That's easy - free motion quilting. I've only just started learning in the last 7-8 months, but I love it. I also really love the design phase. I have more quilts in my head than I can count.
8.) Are you a part of any local Quilt Guilds?
Depends on what you consider local. I live pretty much in the middle of no where. My mom had a quilting group for years that still continues and I get up there to maybe 3 or 4 quilt days a year. I also belong to the Fingerlakes Modern Quilt Guild that lives on Facebook. We are so geographically scattered across the region, we only met 2x last year (and it was just a few of us). I consider my quilt bloggy friends my biggest source of support.
9.) How many quilting projects are you currently working on?  
Not exactly sure, but I would probably say about ten.
10.) If we went to a movie, what type of movie would you pick out?
I do like action movies such as the Bourne series, but I would be just as happy with a Harry Potter or Twilight series movie. I'm kind of excited to see "The Host" (from another book by Stephenie Meyer).

11.) If we went out for dinner, what restaurant would you pick?
Well, if we were in my neck of the woods it would be the Hazelnut Kitchen. Wonderful local, organic produce and pasture raised meats, cooked fabulously.  Key words here, small, local, fresh!

Now it's my turn!

5.) Do you have any pets?
6.) Do you have a nickname?
7.) What hobbies (other than sewing/quilting) do you have?
8.) What would be your dream vacation?
9.) What is your favorite time of day?  
10.) Do you buy fabric without having a project in mind?
11.) What is the last book you read?
If you decide to play along, I look forward to getting to know you a little bit more!
