1 Why did you start blogging?
This current blog is not my first one. I used to have a website a couple of years ago because I wanted to learn how to build them. I started this blog just for the purpose of sharing the things I make and to get inspired by other bloggers. 

2 What is your go to pattern?
At this moment it is the recess raglan by see kate sew. Great fit, easy sew, maximum result (my kind of sewing).

3 How many hours a week do you spend behind your sewing machine?
Probably around 6 hours a week.

4 Which country or continent would you like to discover?

5 How many yards of fabric are there in your closet?

My stack of fabric isn't that big, but I do have a closet filled with old clothes for repurposing. There's a lot of recycling going on around here.

6 What's your favorite movie?
I'm more of a series watcher, so I'll name my favorite series: dr Who! Although Sherlock is a very close runner up. Sherlock meets dr Who? That would be great, thanks Steven Moffat!

7 Tent, caravan, cottage or hotel?
Definitely the camping type! We used to travel around with a small tent, but now we enjoy the luxury of a caravan. that's so much more practical with the rascals.

8 You can wake me up for:
Taking a road trip

9 What's the last thing you photographed?
The rascals on their little John Deere, crossing around the playground.

10 Do you have a motto?
I'm not very good at oneliners but I think "Go for it!" comes pretty close. 

11 What's your favorite city for shopping?
Hmm, the world wide web isn't a city, right? Than I stick with my hometown Amsterdam.
