Here in Adelaide, and where I was born (and the rest of the Southern Hemisphere) it’s the start of Autumn.  Here in Adelaide it means the Adelaide Festival, The Fringe Festival, the Adelaide Cup – conveniently a new public holiday for the Adelaide Cup, which is also conveniently very close to my birthday. St Patrick’s day and getting close to Easter.

So I like March? what about you?

Today I have a few things to talk about

  • my parade (no not that parade… my parade)
  • the Where the Wind Blows fat quarter pack giveaway at Vignette in Stitches
  • I decided to make a list at the top of my post just in case I forgot something whilst writing, and I have already forgotten

The Parade, is the Le Petite Parade for February and can be viewed here on Sinta’s Blog and here on Sherri’s Blog – mine is on Sherri’s blog this time.  Coming up we are making a pattern called Endless Summer by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. After my little tragedy with the black and whites I think I may go back to pre-coordinated fabrics before improvising again.

Here is Sinta’s version of the pattern, isn’t it purty?

I’m not sure if I will be stitching any more today, I had one of those days at work where you get into the office, sit down and look up and its 5:30pm. I always explain to people that I turn into (more of (?)) a moron straight after work. It usually takes my brain a few hours to recover, especially after debugging, and I have been debugging this particular code for a while now… Recovery, however, seems a bit elusive today, so I may wander over to the television and numb my brain with something entertaining.  You don’t want to know what I find entertaining… he he he

But I am looking forward to spending some quality time with some fresh cottons this week, and have no fear, you will be the first to ‘hear’ about it.

Oh yeah…
