Hey all! I didn't mention this last month because I was a little sad, but my pet fishy, Uther Pendragon, passed away in July. We don't know exactly what went wrong, but we got a few ideas talking to a guy during our recent visit to the pet store. Why were you at the pet store you ask? Well, let me introduce you to Robert Frost!
(Sorry for the camera reflection...gee it's hard to take a photo of a fish in a bowl!) Isn't he pretty? He's a very friendly fish and that's why I picked him. Alex left the name up to me and I was originally going to name him Gilmore (hah, get it? Gil...more...gosh I kill myself!) but when I looked at him he made me think of Robert Frost and since Frost is one of our favourite poets that's what we went with. Robert Frost is pretty awesome, eh? Okay, I'm talking about the poet now not the fish; I think my favourite poem of his is Acquainted with the Night.
Alright, I know I'm annoying you all with my constant references to super-secret projects but no information... so here's a little sneaky-peeky of something that will be revealed in about a week or so.
Ohhh, pretty Verna! Yup, all will be revealed in a short time...I hope you'll think it was worth the wait! There are still more secret projects in the works, but this one is really exciting (at least for me) and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.
Ohhh, guess what I got in the mail recently? Flea Market Fancy!
I found this Flea Market Fancy scrap pack on Etsy for a decent price and just had to have it! The pink daisy dots is a FQ and there are a few prints here that I didn't have already. I don't have a lot of FMF and I'm still missing a number of prints, but what I do have is being worked into the string blocks for my quilt.
And in other FMF news, I found my missing piece of the green daisy dot, yay! I couldn't find it anywhere and found it behind the couch yesterday while getting some batting (I keep my batting in bags behind/under the couch). I don't know how it got there, but I'm very happy! The green daisy dot piece is the first I ever found (in a scrap pack at last year's Creativ Festival) and measures about 1/4 yard.
I think I may hop into bed now with either some knitting or quilt binding because I haven't been feeling so hot for the past few days. It's pretty early here, but I think even just lying down for a bit will make me feel a bit better! Talk you all soon peeps!
P.S. Did you see Melissa's most recent blog post? It's been a standing thing between John, Jennifer, and I that we need to get some t-shirts made with "Quilt Dad is my Homeboy" on them and guess what? Melissa delivered! Now Jennifer and I are just trying to figure out how to get ours to say "Fly Girl" on the back. If you want to know the story, check out John's Quilt Market recap (the story is towards the end where the picture of Jennifer and I is).
