And the winner is......
Quilting Fitzy can drop me a line. Thanks to the many commenters.
She was very kindly drawn out by my daughter who has unfortunately resumed her couch position. She has an awful cold that now seems to have caused a funny tummy. We can only pray it isn't "the usual"!! It has been nice to have a few months with no tummy trouble.
Here is what the poor cats have to put up with at breakfast. Archie comes running in a second later and rouses everyone, but the chooks have no fear of the cats.
I have been looking for inspiration for my Four Season's Quilt swap. I am having the usual difficulty of finding just the right idea to suit me and the receiver. I wanted the yellows of the light I love here-which is also our summer crop colours, and vibrant blues. I also wanted to work in the sun somehow, as that is a huge part of my Summer. So I had a free piecing day.
This has very already hit the size but I am not sure of it for a swap. My daughter says it looks more like a stegosaurus than the Sun! I think I will head off for another play this afternoon, the light yellow rh corner is definitely coming off, I am also thinking of reducing the sun size and having the ocean in the forefront. I can see it getting to bed size accidentally or getting binned by 2 o'clock and me starting all over again!
So I am probably back to square one with the swap quilt-but you gotta love a reason to play!
I am getting a lot of lovely new commenters who are "no reply". New bloggers may like to go over to Donna at Chookyblue, she has been posting a lot of blogging tips.
Also on blogging, do you print out your blog to keep? I hadn't been, all that extra stuff in the sidebar sucks all the ink and hardly seems worth it, but then I subscribed to myself through bloglines, that way I get the feed with no extras, I keep my posts new until I am in the mood, then print them off all at once. I can print in 2 columns with my Canon, which is quite good enough to read and look at the pictures. What do you do?
Have a great day, Tracey
