the best things in life


like finishing bee blocks:


or in this case making a row for Catherine:


All of the blocks are from Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters. I had to add some sashing to the get the row to the correct size but I like how it creates an abstract look.
Block patterns from left to right: Migration by John Q. Adams; Landscape by Tacha Bruecher; Meeting Point by Tacha Bruecher and Bowties and Blooms by John Q. Adams


Enjoying the sunshine and shadows, playing with paintbrushes and water:


She takes her art very seriously!



The joy of simple games: sink or float?



There is an ongoing problem is our house, those dreaded missing socks!! I feel bad for the lonely ones stuck in a raggedy old bag and today I saw this tutorial to make a bag for mismatched socks, cleverly utilising an embroidery hoop and the cutest embroidery pattern!

Finally fabric sales are always awesome and right now Pink Castle Fabrics have marked down hundreds of fabrics - no coupon needed, just hop over and check out the sale section :)
