What do you need to do to be in the draw?

Tell me something quirky about yourself.

My alarm clock and car thermostat have to be set at an even number.
Those odd numbers just make me uncomfortable!

  5. I have slept corner to corner of the bed since i was a baby...that DID NOT change when i got married sadly for my husband...so everynight, i start out on my side of the bed, and every morning we wake up and he is in his little triangle curled up tight. He has never complained though, not once in all our twenty years of marriage, lol. God love him. Kellie W. kwarren29@cox.net

  15. I have a thing about the number 13. I don't like to do anything if 13 is involved. For instance,if I am making a comment and I am number 13, I will try to wait until someone else comments first. Silly, isn't it.

  17. I agree with the no shoes to sew thing! I need to be able to feel the pedal beneath my foot! Quirky about me? I fold all the edges when I wrap presents. Can't have a raw edge of paper showing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I use my left foot on the pedal of my sewing machine. My machine has a knee lift and if I get my right leg and my right foot going I seem to mess things up. So years ago I started using my left foot on the pedal. I still use my right foot when driving though!

    ReplyDelete
  19. After reading all of your posts, I am thinking that my quirkiness is that I sew with my shoes ON! I seldom walk around barefoot. Just the habit that my Mother instilled in me, from being raised in an old farm house with cold floors .... and hardwood that often had splinters come off. I love wearing sandals ... but do not like sand in them. Eww ick! I guess my feet are just plain quirky!

    ReplyDelete
  20. The only thing I do is sew barefoot. If I'm home or away and I'm using my own sewing machine it's more comfortable for me to sew without shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love wearing Pajamas 90% of the time! I also have a thing for even numbers and it drives me crazy when they arent!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I always sew barefoot or with socks on.

    I love my mom's featherweight so much that before the foot peddle was fixed I used it wearing socks till I felt the shocks through my socks, then I moved to slippers till I could feel the zaps through those. That didn't stop me I then wore shoes till I could feel the tingles from my finger tips to my elbows when I touched the base of the machine. lol When that happened it was time to have it fixed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm like Julia Roberts husband in "Sleeping With the Enemy", I like the towels evenly lined up. Even in my linen closet the towels are all folded the same way, stacked and lined up. As a kid I could tell if you walked in my bedroom because you left footprints on my freshly vacuumed carpet. A little crazy I know. Merry! Merry!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  57. Because I learned to drive (in Southern California) without shoes on, even in Drivers Ed, for years I wasn't able to drive with shoes on. It wasn't until recently when I moved to Oregon as an adult and couldn't keep taking my boots off in the winter that I had to buckle down and learn how to drive when I couldn't "feel the pedal". I didn't believe I could do it, but it turned out to be possible.

  94. I have to line things up visually - like if I can see a post or pole of some sort through a window, I have to visually line it up with the window frame or exactly in the middle or beside a sash or whatever. I never wear shoes in the house yet I have over 100 pairs of shoes and I still buy more. And I am retired and don't go that many places! When I eat, I save what I think is the best part for last. I think I might be kind of nuts - lol. And fabric - I won't even go there....

    ReplyDelete
  95. I also sew with no shoes but that doesn't seem so quirky now.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  101. I eat what I like least first and save the best for last. Guess my weight shows it. Hubby says that my quirkiness is I am a very natural teacher where I don't believe I am a good teacher at all.

  106. Quirky....alright, I live in my sweats 90% of the time, until going out in public or until it gets to dang hot for them. LOL. Another quirky part, I just can not figure out about myself lately...I absolutely love Machine Applique yet have not done any in over a year! So, seeing your gorgeously adorable appliqued pillow, I knew I had to try and win this give away! Thank you for the opportunity and have a fantastic creative day!

  112. Quirky? Me? I eat French toast with salt and pepper instead of maple syrup.

    ReplyDelete
  113. How funny! We share two of the same quirks. No shoes when sewing and always even numbers, maybe because I was born on an even day. I also try not to use coins when shopping. I pay with bills and then I put all my change in a jar at home. It's a simple way to save and it adds up fast.

    Thanks for a chance to win. Happy Holidays!

  135. something quirky about me.... too choose just one, I"m really into lines and aesthetically things need to "fit" for me to be comfortable. So if the couch is off center from the window, or the coffee table from the couch I have trouble concentrating!

  141. What a fun giveaway! I avoid telephones. I really don't like talking on them, but have no problem writing an email. I'm a little anxious because I'm getting my first smartphone for Christmas. I've had an older cellphone for years but it's usually silenced in my purse.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Definitely a no shoes crafter! Quirky? Can't stand frosted glasses. When we go out for cocktails and they serve my Absolut tonic in a frosted glass, I wrap it in at least 4 napkins!

  147. That is so funny. I am the same with numbers and need things even. And I sew with barefeet or socks.
    I also have a routine for saying goodnight to my kids and even if they aren't at home I will still follow it.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I pour left handed, but do everything else with my right hand.

  155. Yes I too can relate to being barefoot when sewing. When either on the lap top or watching a movie on LMN I have to eat a roll of Necco candy wafers. I was even thinking about putting a roll into the sewing machine cabinet. Thank you for being a part of the SMS Giveway. I loved the idea of a pattern and a kit. That makes winning this so much fun. It is also a very thoughtful and generous gift. Wishing you Happy Holidays.

  156. I have to sleep with a noise maker running (white noise machine). It's so bad that I have made sure to find one that I can take with me when I travel. I have even gone as far as making a carrying case for it.

  160. I'm at Loose Ends if I don't have something to quilt (or knit). One small group I belong to is called "loose ends" - named from having that feeling after an embellishment workshop. Another small group is "loose threads" - sew either way, it's Loose. ;-)

  161. Great question. Hrm....
    The sound of a football game on TV makes me very sleepy. Nothing is better for an afternoon nap than a football game on in the background. :)

  163. I will turn a map upside down to look at it in the direction I will be traveling in. I also don't wear shoes to sew. I like to feel the peddle.

  164. I drink cold water even in winter and listening the radio while sewing without shoes but with slippers.

  165. Things have to be left where I put them or I will never find them again, so hubby doesn't put things away often for me

  167. Even numbers, LOL! I don't think I have any quirky things other than liking to listen to CBC (Canadian) while I sew, and in the early morning WRCJ a Detroit classical/jazz station that we can stream while in Florida!

  169. Hi Kathy. I'm new to your blog, and I had lots of fun looking through your gallery. You are one busy lady! :) I too sew barefoot. Well....with just socks on this time of year. In fact, I almost NEVER put shoes on. Only if I absolutely have to. Thanks for the chance to win that super adorable bench pillow kit from KimberBell and the Moda Feed Company charm pack...also adorable! Happy Holidays

  171. I can't sleep for more than 3 or 4 hours at a time. Fortunately I am an online teacher, so my job allows me to work in the middle of the night and take naps during the day.

  174. I cannot stand to go barefoot- I am only without shoes in the bed or the shower. I cannot stand to use a hairbrush, don't own one. I use a comb when my hair is wet otherwise I just use my fingers in my hair.

  176. Wow, we share some quirkiness! The sewing thing and the numbers thing! I love ice cream, but not out of a bowl. I like it better straight out of the pint container, preferably Haagen Das coffee flavored. :)

  178. I can't sleep on the side of the bed by the door. When I was a little girl my sister had to sleep in the bed by the door now I can't sleep on the side.
