It is time for a Meme again!

Laurie and Polly from Minnick and Simpson were asked some questions last week. I thought it was time for a meme again, so I’m going to try to answer these questions too.

These are some of the questions Lissa asked Laurie and Polly..........

And here are my answers.
What is a little known fact about yourselves? I’m turning 47 this year and I still ask myself – what do I want to be when I grow up.

How do you relax? I don’t know how!!! I try, the only thing that helps achieve this goal is yoga & sometimes quilting.

What do you sleep in? Usually men's pyjama bottoms and a t-shirt.

What kind of pillow do you like? One that is suited for people who sleep on their tummies. Sometimes I even throw the pillow on the ground, and rest my head on the mattress. I like little pillows.

When you were young did you sleep with a stuffed animal? I don’t remember. However, as a adult I do sleep with a stuffed animal. He keeps me warm and as me, he likes to lay on his stomach.


He is microwave proof. For 2 minutes he goes into the microwave just before I go to bed. He keeps me warm till I fall asleep.  


When it is not night, he sits waiting for me.


Do you sew in bed? Read? Watch tv? Eat? You got to be kidding. Do people really do these things in bed? I didn’t know! Usually as soon as I put my head on my pillow I’m asleep. The first 4 hours you need to make an effort to wake me up. Sometimes when stressed or have too much going on, I pick-up a book to read. Sometimes I read around 2 am. After lots of tossing & turning I give up and put on the light and read. Sometimes the book is so good, I do an all-nighter, I just can’t put it down. I’m usually sorry in the morning!

Early to bed or all-nighter? I’m an early to bed person. Always have been. I’m also a morning person. Who would have guessed. For me it is an effort to stay up late.

Who would you most like to have a pillow fight with? I think Mark Hamon as Jethro Gibbs.

I turned 47 just a couple of weeks ago and I'm just now putting feet to action of what I want to be when I grow up! I love your blog and I've been buying material for the Dear Jane quilt for years...never done any of the blocks yet.

Hello Helen,

What a lovely bear and what an idea, a microwavable one! I have a boring pillow with grains to warm me up in bed. Wrong! :)

Have a nice day! Bye, Carolien
