Meet Zoe of Scouts Stitches

I am pleased to introduce Zoe:

Of the blog:


1.Tell us a little about you and your blog.

I work full time as a dietitian but love to spend my free time doing anything crafty- sewing, cross stitch, scrapbooking, painting. I recently moved into a new house and have been doing a lot of DIY projects to get it all pretty. I am a country girl and I am doing my best to live frugally, repurpose old materials and make my house nice and cozy. In my blog I share my DIY projects, craft projects, and my cooking.

2.How and when did you start crafting?

My mother taught me some basic sewing skills and always had craft projects for us to do but I didn't really start crafting a lot until the end of college when I took a part time job in the fabric section of Hobby Lobby. After that it was one project after another-cross stitching, scrapbooking and sewing mainly. After moving into my new house I have started testing my DIY abilities and am loving all the new projects!

3.What made you decide to join Stashbusting September?

I have enough craft supplies to last me at least 20 years and I have a lot of projects that are either not started yet, half started or almost done that need to be finished SOON! It seemed like a good challenge to help me finish those projects and cut back on some of the supplies!

4. What one project do you hope to get done during this month? 

I would like to finish the cushions for my patio furniture this month and upcycle one item of clothing for myself.

5.What is your guilty pleasure? 

As a dietitian and someone who can cook I hate to admit this- Kraft Macaroni and Cheese- the original in the blue box- I really like it!

6. If you were stuck on a desert island what crafting item would you bring with you(or items)?

I would bring my cross stitch patterns, floss and fabric. I love to cross stitch but it takes a long time to finish a project- if I was on a desert island I would have lots of time and little distraction!
