Queen Bee/Caretaker Spotlight!

Hello!  Hope you're having a fabulous week so far!  We thought it would be fun to spotlight out Queen Bees and our Caretakers, so here is our first one.

All about  Sixmunchins...aka Lisa! 

She is a Queen Bee and also Caretaker of Hive #1...the STAR Hive!  We asked her to answer a few fun questions.

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a wife to a wonderful man. We will be celebrating our 9th anniversary in July. I'm a stay-at-home(schooling) mom to six children, aging from 1 year old up to 11 years. I run an etsy shop and have a blog.  (She blogs at

2. Favorite color, food, drink, hobbies.
My favorite color is purple, followed by blue. I am however falling for gray as a background color and pairing colors I never thought I would.
My favorite food is Japanese. My husband took me to a wonderful local Japanese Steakhouse for our first date and I've been hooked since.
My favorite drink is a mocha latte. I also love hot chocolate.
I have many hobbies and I don't have a particular favorite, though depending on my mood I will prefer one over the other. They are quilting, crocheting, sewing, cross-stitch, reading, blogging, running, and baking.

3. Favorite quilt designers, fabric line, quilting tip, block/project you've made, etc.
I am really loving Kate Spain's lines right now. I just ordered some Good Fortune!
One of my favorite lines is Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2 because of it's purple colorway as well as the prints themselves.
One of my favorite blocks is Angela's Stargazer Block. I made 12 of them for the last quarter:

My favorite project that I made would have to be the Family Tree quilt I was commissioned to make for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary:

4. What's your quilting style?
I would have to say my style is mixed.

5. If you could visit any place in the world, where would you go?
I would love to go to Europe. I have only been out of the country once, and it was to Jamaica when I was 15.

6. Tell us about your hive this quarter...and what you love most about the 3x6 bee.
I have the Star hive. I'm really excited because there are a few familiar people that I've had in my hives before and some new people that are rather chatty, which for me is a great thing!
What I love most about the 3x6 bee is the diversity of the members and the friends that I am making.

Thanks for all you do to make the 3x6 Bee so fun, Lisa!  =)
