Oh @Pearl...that elephant  :loveit:

Half the fun for me is in using things that are made for me, and living in hope that the things I make for others are also used. In a craft swap many years ago, I was given a lovely crocheted bag for my craft bag. It is now getting on, some threads have loosened and I have repaired the places where it is getting thin. It is a beloved thing, and reminds me of the dear friend who made it for me.

Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a lovely day, with cake, and all that good stuff

Done! Now, I am pretty sure I know what i will be doing -  I love making mug rats! Now all I need to do, is to find some nice springful fabric...


Thanks @Iminei will pm you now.

Honey, you are going great guns. Stop doubting your ability, and stop worrying about it being perfect! Something someone on the old forum for the sewing place, which disappeared some years ago, said was that if you wanted an absolutely perfect quilt, you would go to the store and buy a machine made one. It would be perfect but soulless. I took this to mind. None of my quilts will ever be perfect, they will always have flaws, but they will be full of me!

(Creeps in)....I kinda missed the sign up date I too late? Can I join purrrleeease? Pretty please? @Iminei Is it still possible, Imi? If not possible, I do understand. I have been thinking about it, but I got caught up with work and didn't realise I was passed the date.

@Sara-S - my goodness, you have been working hard! That is gorgeous, such lovely warm colours. I think the observation about the blue centres is a good one - for future reference, mind. I doubt I would have noticed if it hadnt been pointed out to me

I think it is rather lovely, a different combination of colours - certainly works for me!

I want to...but I am so busy at this time of year...but I want to...but will I make time? Decisions, decisions...

That reminds me, @justpottering , in my dream I made a quilt for the Project Linus challenge.  Unfortunately, when I woke, I hadn’t.

Hugs for you both, I suffer from insomnia and sometimes bad nights where I sleep little and the sleep i get comes with very strange, and often unpleasant dreams. You both have all my sympathy.
Isn't it irritating though, when you do something (oft repeatedly) in your dreams and then wake up to having done nothing of the sort!  :angry:

Lucky little one!
