You may know of my love for the Australians — genius quilters in that exciting place! So, I saw this sign last night and I got all excited!
Yes, please! Where do I buy tickets?
And then I saw this “guy”:
And then I remembered I was at the zoo and nowhere near the train station to Australia. ::sigh::
But, the animals were ever-so-active in the evening last night.
This guy cracked us up and was a little miffed that we were interrupting his evening schedule:
I’m very sorry if we interrupted their evening, but I must say it was worth to see the aardvarks digging, digging, digging:
A girl can get thirsty from all that digging! They now have my vote for Favorite Animal!
I feel like I’ve been digging, digging, digging this week. There were kid’s bedroom reno activities. I may have had a tiny little snooze in the new loft bed — just to be sure it was safe up there. Safety first, I say.
There has been sewing, sewing, sewing.
I got to play with these cute witches:
Decided to put a little wonky four patch around her for border. I think witches get mad if you cut into them too much.
The wonky four patch idea comes from the most recent Fons & Porter magazine in a clever little pattern called Tipsy.
Fun and fast!
Anyhoo, the “fast forward” part of the patterns is the use of pre-cuts so you’re one step ahead of the cutting game when you begin.
I made my own pre-cuts for Pat’s “I Remember” quilt (shown on the book’s cover):
Decidedly a little spring-y in fabric choices but a definite cheerer-upper:
Happy, happy, joy, joy!
That pretty much hits the high points of the week — along with some nom-licious homemade hot sauce (which I don’t think we will ever run out of…). How was your week?
