Day 11 ~ Pillow Talk ~ Our Day!

Good Morning!!

Day is dawning … and it’s finally our day … Day 11!

I have been so excited to share some little secrets about Mary’s sleeping habits that I could hardly wait!

After all … I’ve known her since she was a baby.

Just look at that grin on my face. I told her she would look better in the picture if she wore those things on her eyes.

But business first … Here is our pillow …

Our good friend Laurie did the great machine applique.

… a KNOWN fact about me is that I can’t applique a stitch and have flunked out of three classes. So those who can’t do … beg a friend.

Mary and I were each given the task of finding 4 charms that represented us and sew them onto the pillow.

We both started with our initials …

I choose a Volkswagen because it was my first car …

Mary chose a cupcake with a diamond!

Enough about the pillow …

Pillow Fight!!!

I was an x ray tech for 23 years and never saw a naked person, or almost naked person who looked good!

So I sleep in full pajama shirt and pants every night. Never know when you might need an x ray.

I also sleep with socks on because I have big pointy toes that get caught in the covers.

Mary sleeps in these now a days … This is a photo of her closet loaded with them! She slept topless as a child.

Not much difference.

Just like her PINK perma press blouses … she has at least 15 PINK nighties!

Mary is also like the princess in that story about the Princess and the Pea … very delicate.

I share a hotel room with her when we travel. She is a very good roommate.

If you don’t mind all the snoring!

The person that I would most like to have a pillow fight with is that cute guy from the show White Collar …

Mary’s pillow fight dream would be with …

Just kidding!!!

OK now for the fun!!

  1. I’ve just started quilting but have been sewing for years. Your fabric and designs are for the young at heart. When you walk into the quilt shop you know where Me and Mysister are! So wonderful that you bring such happiness into a room. What a gift.

  2. I highly suspect that Mary’s fave colour is Pink…
    And going by the toes… I’d say Barb’s feet are on my left 😉
    Thanks for the opportunity to win your lush quilt – it’s gorgeous!!!
    Dilly Dally is just beautiful, I will have to go and check out my local quilting shop to see if they have it in.

    What a fun post. Were we supposed to get a link for the pillow you contributed to Pillow Talk. I can’t find it and I have 2 sisters with upcoming birthdays. A perfect gift!

    I think Mary’s favorite color is pink, why else would she have so many pink nighties?? Those are her feet under the Big S in Sisters.
