Tuesday This and That

1) I noticed at work that whenever I try to type "clams" it seems to come out as "calms". Calm as a clam, maybe? I could do with some of that...

2) I am gradually getting supplies together for the quilt symposium which starts in a week and a half. One of my classes requires pre-cut strips in fortyeight different fabrics (24 of each of two colours). I am going with blue and orange. These colours make me feel happy!



I also need pre-cut squares of various black and white printed fabrics. The chook fabric is one I just couldn't resist.



3) I've walked on this track quite a few times and never spotted this character before. I wonder what he did to suffer the penalty of being turned to stone? No wonder he looks a little grumpy.

Hello CAtherine. Michele sent me today. I love the colors you chose for the quilt. Will you post pictures of the finished projest?

I think you should make grumpy a quilt and then take another picture. How cool would that be.

Calm clams chatter charmingly.

Hehe...I love that rock! How amusing. He looks like a character out of a children's novel or something don't you think? The fabrics for your quilt look so lovely together....I know how long it takes to do quilting so good luck with it. I wouldn't have been able to resist that gorgeous chook material either!!

Here via Michele today...

I had a This and That post this week too...Scrabble boards instead of fabric. I love that rock and the tufty grass.

The fabrics are beautiful!! Of course, to me blue and orange represent the Mets, and as an avid Yankee fan it's hard for me to be a big supporter of that color choice. ;)

Here via michele!

I love the picture of the pile of fabric. Great geometry, texture and color.
