And you will know us by...

It must be spring.  The daily bee situation is starting to happen again...  I'm convinced there must be a nest somewhere...  But, it certainly keeps Elliecat happy!

I had some post the other day that made me happy too....
I got my name tag for the Fat Quarterly Retreat in London (please can I refer to it as FQR London from now on?  I fear I might be mentioning it rather a lot in the next 4 weeks...)


It's WONDERFUL!  What's more, is that it was made for me by a blogger I really cannot wait to meet too, namely Cindy of Fluffy Sheep Quilting.  Cindy is awesome.  We chat about fabric addiction all the time...  Actually, Cindy has some news to tell, very soon, and its BIG....  I think you should all keep a beady eye on Cindy...Like, today....  That's Cindy, at Fluffysheepquilting.com  Dont forget ;-)

Big thanks to Cindy, I love my name tag, and I dont know which side I'll show as they're both so fantastic!  Needless to say miss Elliecat loves it too.  Well, its fabric, fabric that dangles, with ribbon attached....  Its been stolen once already...

My man managed to get me out of the house a little before he left.  We had a visit to Auntie to deliver a wee something to sit on the sofa with her and match nicely with her Stained Pink Quilt.






And, in a lovely if rare moment of glorious sunshine, my man provided me with a little reminder that I do live in a rather beautiful part of the world as we went on our annual find-the-babies drive.   Not the human kind, (boo!) but all the creature cuteness.  

Naturally the baby (fluffy) sheep refused to stay still for long enough to be snapped, the baby cows all kept hiding behind their mummies, and the baby bunnies were a no-show.  We did find a few baby ponies, but made a bit of a horses ass out of taking their photy...




Now there should have been baby sheep in this next photy, but they were far too busy larkin about to pose.  Interesting mix of feathers though wouldnt you say?!


Chickens, roosters, geese, ducks and turkeys!
Just no FLUFFY SHEEP....

  7. You may have to make Elliecat her own name tag. I'm sure she'll wear it proudly before tryin to destroy it.

    Oh how I wish I lived across the pond! Do jealous of all the FQR talk and planning.

  15. ROFL, could you have got Cindy in there more? I think you deserve a prize just for inventiveness :oD

    Is he thinking fluffy babies will work as a placebo? It's an interesting idea...

  17. Sarah, this is just hilarious! So entirely creative - I'd love to hear how your brain works when you're not blogging....just a running commentary of what's going on in there.

    I went baby looking last night. Thought about you. xx

  21. Hi, Sarah. Haven't stopped by for awhile, don't know why...oh, yeah, I was in the States. Anyway, glad to see you're still keeping your readers in stitches, so to speak. Cool pouch, and your grey pillows in a previous post are striking.
    best, nadia

  23. Have been internetless for nearly 3 weeks so it's great to see all your stuff - I think you've been super productive. Love everything you've made and the name tag is so cool. I'd be wearing it down to Tesco! (your title is a bit harsh, though....or am I getting my biblical references mixed up?!...)

  24. I know that this weather is rare, but your part of the world looks so beautiful in it :)
    I love the Stained Pink zippy and your tag is so cute.
    It's a pity I can't make it to the FQR, I hope you enjoy it so much you will go again another time.
