Tara at true,pure,lovely  tagged me for this fun blog game. I have followed Tara for a while, go and check out her amazing blog and her fantastic creations. It is a great place to find inspiration! This game of tag has helped me find some new bloggers.  I love reading about other bloggers and getting to know them beyond their amazing sewing projects, so I was very excited to be part of the game of "tag"!
