Happiness is ...

Whatever the postman brings in big envelopes or packages, like this big one:

All half metres of Salt Water by Tula Pink, but you knew that.
Haven't got a clue yet what to do with them except enjoying them just as they are. 
I like the wavy quilt Tula has made with these fabrics, you can see it here.

The quick project I told you about last time is nearly ready; I'll show you when it's ready.
Can anyone tell me how to quilt minkee? Will it not lose its fluffiness?

Completely useless

Just a quicky for today and it's got nothing to do with quilting.
It's a website that is good for a laugh, so not completely useless, but a wonderful time waster ...
Click the site (please), click on the big PLEASE.
Every time you click, it opens a new page.
Close that page and go back to the first site to click on PLEAE again for a new site.
And there are A LOT.
Sometimes you have to read the URL to understand (the joke)


Have fun and till later this week as I'm working on a quicky too!

The first month of the year is over and I feel as if I've accomplished something.
Besides a lot of snow and cold thus feeding the birds, I have been sewing!
And enjoying it too.

My Dead Simple Scrappy Trip around the World consists of 9 blocks at the moment and I think I'd like to add some (7? 14?) more. (One block is totally messed up and I'll unpick that)

The birds in the garden had a lot to eat. The latest thing (craze?) here is saltless peanutbutter for them. Especially when it's really cold they eat a jar in 2 to 3 days.
Blackbirds love apples and eat everything around the core.

Ahh my daughter's hamster died; she buried it in our garden.
(She's 23 so no drama's there)

I'm glad my sewing mojo is back!
Now I'm off to look at all the others at Lynn's and I'll be at this Friday Party
