I could happily live in Portland


My week started with a lovely thoughtful card from a very dear high school friend


Then cupcakes were in order...


because my baby girl turned one!

I decided to write some little memories of her at this stage because I'm not great at filling in those baby books.


And she brewed us all some tea:


This week I've cut all my S is for Stitchembroidery blocks and cut some Kona jelly roll strips to start piecing them together


and it just so happens to coordinate perfectly with the backing fabric I'd picked out, if I have enough I may well use this for binding too



This week I also took a little quiz and discovered I should be living in Portland:


Go and see what city you should actually live in and come back and let me know!


Live A Colorful Life

  1. hehe, Yes! Come visit Portland anytime and we'll go fabric shopping, drink loads of tea and skip along SE Portland Streets. But you must come during a quilt guild meeting :) Have a wonderful weekend Lucy!

  2. Love the sweet card you gave to the birthday girl! I love the backing you have chosen for your stitchery quilt. I tried the City quiz but there were too many irrelevant questions for this old duck! Besides, I'm happy in Melbourne!

  3. I want in on the Portland shopping trip if you ever visit. I will happily drive 5 hours for shopping :) I took the quiz and got London. Makes sense since I almost moved there when I was 19. But I am glad I stayed put and didn't drop out of college :)

  19. Happy birthday, Lois!

    P.S. Apparently I should live in Los Angeles but as I had to randomly pick at least half my answers because there wasn't a 'none of the above' or 'I don't know who any of these people are' option I'm not sure I believe it ;o)
