Spring is here!

I wholehartedly welcome springtime and all its magnificance...warmer weather, birdies singing, the odd skunk smell through the park....and slight seasonal allergies.

That just means the DH will have to cook for me more often on the BBQ (he is Australian, and looooves his bbq)

It also means alot of people throw out gems that they dont want....which is fine and dandy by me. That just means I get more cabinets for my sewing stashes and craft stuff that we dont currently have room for.

Being the good investigative brat kitty that she is, Leeloo decided to investigate my quilting stash after I organized it, and make herself comfortable in my slightly used cabinet.

Isn't she just ever so helpful?

Here's also a few more pics of the stars for the bushfire quilt Ive been working on. Reminder to anyone else sending me blocks. Please try to get them here by the end of next week. I will be sending them out on the first saturday of april (the 4th)

this one says "A passion for Patchwork"

This one is silly looking pumpkins....since Australians dont celebrate Hallowe'en very often over there....i figure I'd send some north american love of that festival.

Leeloo is a sensible kitty....she knows what a cupboard of stash is for......
