Two Truths and a Lie with Kim Kight

This giveaway has now ended – find out the answer here!

It’s been a little while since we last played two truths and a lie and I’m so excited to have Kim Kight here to play with us this weekend!

You probably know Kim best as one of Cotton + Steel‘s five founding designers. She’s an avid collector of vintage textiles and her collections – Cookie Book, Homebody and (coming soon) Lucky Strikes – are built around her most cherished vintage prints.

From 2008-2013, Kim ran the blog True Up which was all about fabric and design. She is also the author of A Field Guide to Fabric Design (Stash Books, 2011). Kim lives in Dripping Springs, Texas (“the gateway to the Hill Country” outside of Austin) with her husband, two boys, new puppy, and three chickens. See all of her work on her brand-new website!

Here is how we play: Kim will tell us three things about herself. Two are true and one is a lie. If you want to participate, tell us in the comments which statement you think is a lie. Enter by midnight on Sunday and on Monday we’ll put all the correct answers in randomizer and choose one who will win a lovely bundle of Cookie Book!

Here we go:

1. I can’t smell. The technical word is anosmia. It must be genetic because my mom can’t smell either. 
2. I was an extra in an episode of the TV show Quantum Leap (about a high school football champ). It filmed at our high school. You can see me in the stadium and in a hallway shot!
3. I played in an Indonesian gamelan orchestra for a couple years. I played a mean bonang, though in my heart I was more of a slenthem player. Or maybe it was the other way around.
Which is a lie? Tell us in the comments! Remember, the deadline to be entered in the prize draw is midnight on Sunday. Anyone can play, but only entries in UK/Europe are eligible for this prize.
