My 2 Cents

A few posts ago I mentioned that I was going to play along with Chantalle of Fat Mum Slim Instagram photo a day challenge.

Today if you go over and read her blog {it’s ok I’ll wait} you will have seen that someone nicked her design and didn’t even give her credit, didn’t even make it their own just downright copied and pasted.


She has a quote on her blog by Jim by Jim Jarmusch that I think is pretty awesome and I just wanted to add a thought from Emily Carr one of my favourite painters.

If you're going to lick the icing off somebody else's cake you won't be nourished and it won't do you any good, - or you might find the cake had caraway seeds, and you hate them. (Emily Carr)

I have no problem with poetic license, no problem with taking something in and putting back up all done up and screaming your name BUT there is no need for stealing in a world so obviously full of inspiration.

Anyway that's my 2 cents.

Last Night...

...I slept under a quilt...for the first time EVER {well the second night ever} and I have to say was an amazingly satisfying feeling it was.

Helped by the fact this quilt has been almost a year in the making.

This is my first big finish EVER and for the year :D

Now to move onto the other projects I said I would do/ half started etc

I have even banned myself from started new knitting projects until I finish the back log.

So I better get going!

p.s. Made from Hulloabloo by Urban Chicks for Moda and Home Town Sky & White Bella Solid
This quilt measures 80 x 90"

Misfit Bee - March

How was every one's love day yesterday?

Hubs got me some 2 skeins of Madeline Tosh and  a skein of Pigeonroof Studios yarn, for some socks *squee* pictures to follow I promise!

Ok so that aside lets talk about the Misfit BEE :D

I have decided to run it from my blog because after this I there will be no more Misfit swaps from a prospective anyway. I will still run some from my blog and that means you can run them from yours too! So if you are interested AWESOME and if not maybe next time :D

So back to the BEE March is my month and I chose...

{drum roll please}

The Scrap Vomit - Block B created by my new sis Katy!

I sent the ladies some black and blue squares to use and I CAN'T wait to see what they come up with.

Speaking of which I should get cracking on making some squares myself :D

There is something that I have noticed about quilters/crafters. One project is never enough and new projects catch on like wildfire through the online community.

I am no different.

I have a million other things I need to do BUT keep getting caught in all the other awesomeness that is going around.

This time it's Knitting.

I blame Amy and Amanda.

My first project is the madeline tosh Honey Cowl you can also download it from Ravelry.

Colour: Cherry Blossom.


Next up.

Yarn: Cakewalk Yarn
Colour: Vernon

In the middle of all this knitting I'll be getting out my fabric for the Misfit Bee that starts next month :D
