I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Totally Useless SAL update - New Moon 3 April 2011

Here we are again - another new moon today.  I can't believe how quickly 2011 is flying by...

The ORT's have been multiplying away quite happily this last month.  I have actually had to push them down in the jar - maybe I had better find a bigger jar soon!

This month the ORT's are made up of the last of the butterfly that I stitched for Quilts 4 Kids, a bit of my Margaret Sherry cat that I must finish.... and Eeyore and Friends which I stitched for Quilts 4 Kids, and the browns of the monkeys that I have just started.  So quite a variety of colours with the blue of Eeyore starting to disappear under the brown of the monkeys!

Will post a monkey update in the next couple of days....

TUSAL 3 April 2011
(The red rose is from our garden)
This new moon finds my ORT's playing with the snow globe that hubby bought back from Sydney for me.  Unfortunately I didn't get to go this time but maybe next time ORT's and I will be able to tag along on his junket!!  I wonder where my ORT's will want to have their picture taken next month??
For more info on the TUSAL pop over to Daffycat's blog.

Stitching update:

Eeyore and Friends was finished on 30 March 2011.  I just need to wash and press it and then pop it in the mail to Quilts 4 Kids to be added to the quilt of Alexis W.  I really enjoyed stitching this and it was actually quite a quick stitch - especially after the very long "Wings" one....  Would quite happily to do this one again!

Really lovely ORTs, Noni! Don't worry, they pack in pretty tight so I bet your jar will be big enough.

Hi Noni
Thank you for stopping by my blog ~ lovely to meet you.
I see you share you house with furry friends too, it's so rewarding isn't it and obviously we both share a very good taste in names!
Love to see a Pooh Bear stitch, they're always so colourful and fun.

Hello Noni!

So nice to hear that you liked my pictures with all that snow we have.
Actually spring is coming little by little but after couple of warmer weeks we have had again colder nights ( -16C).
Fields around our house are still covered with snow.
I would be happy to see some picture how it looks outside Your house ??!

Your cats playing with the tennis-balls were so cute!!
They really had great fun :)

I remember that Eyore-pattern from that magazine ,it is so
heart-warming that you stitched it for a charity!! :)
