blogging sporadically

One post a week. I'm really not being a very good blogger at the minute. Things are busy here in the Monkey House/FQHQ and I'm doing a lot of secret stuff that I just can't share.
I've also been working on a little giveaway thingy for you guys, so it's not all bad, is it? More on that soon (when I manage to get it finished. Along with the other 5 gazillion things on my to-do list).

Maybe it's my hormones. Or age. Or the fact that I had a spray tan and I am now bright orange, as opposed to Californian Tanned, or maybe it's just that I miss her terribly on a daily basis since she left the Fat Quarterly team (I think that's the most likely reason). Whatever the reason, when I got a package this week with Super Nova's return address on it I was A; confused and B; ridiculously excited.
When I opened up the package and this popped out I had a little weep. And since then this beautiful pillow has followed me everywhere I've needed to sit in the house. Sewing - yep - my bum goes right on it, on the couch - I lean up against it, in bed - I have a little snuggle into it.
Thank you Nova - you know how much you rock. And I love you heaps. You know that too, don't you? I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it xxxx

I've also been busy with pompom trim recently. I blame Angela. Firstly, I've found it can be used as a delightful way to hide bad hair days.

bad hair day?

And secondly (possibly to greater effect) I used it to trim the Honey Child quilt (keep posted for news of the tutorial - it's going to be somewhere much more exciting than this little old blog. I'll be sure to let you know - ok?!)

I absolutely love how it turned out. It's super simple, and great for a summery picnic blanket.

Right - back to the grindstone. It's Mother's Day here in the UK and we are off to the in-law's for lunch. I'm trying to decide whether pompom trim would also make an excellent mask to hide my bright orange skin. It's worth a shot.
