Not to mention that this morning hubster and I added "Running" back into our list of hobbies. Well, I say Running but that word might be misleading.
On Friday, I finally met the lovely Ceri of Inspired By Felix loveliness. We were supposed to travel up to the Fat Quarterly Retreat together, before my bug ruined the whole affair. I had a thoroughly wonderful and I am looking forward to our next meet, which hopefully will include more sewing action too. Its so nice to be able to talk to someone about quilting/fabric/sewing and other musings. Her little girl is just adorable.
I came home from Ceri's with a little bundle of gorgeous fabrics - including some texty prints that I have been lusting after.
I also left her's with a new dish idea for my kitchen; Beef and Guiness Stew. I am always struggling to know what on earth to cook, especially now that there are four opinionated tasters in the house. I rustled it up for yesterday's tea and everyone scoffed the lot!!
I still need to add some more culinary delights to my armoury, so please leave me a comment and tell me your favourite dish to cook.
In sewing news, this...
I have finally sewn my first Bee Block for the Fat Quarterly Retreat Kinky Bee that was formed recently. You might recall that I blogged about it here.
Kelly asked for One 19" block of circles. She supplied all the materials and this is what I came up with. A Circle Explosion for rainbowy fun. I string paper pieced the large inner circle and then raw edge appliquéd various sized circles in a random explosion sort of a manner.
Oh gosh, I hope she likes it.
Finally, on future happenings around these parts...
I have fallen in love with a new quilt pattern. Its called Space Dust and its just fuelling my *I love Tula Pink's new Birds and Bees fabric line* fire. Its a pricey pattern but given the intricacy of the paper pieced individual block and the amazingly gorgeous end result, I am smitten.

Now, I'm off to check on dinner. It might take me some time! I will be walking around for the rest of the day in a rather embarrassing *first time back to running* muscles have all seized up sort of a way.
Cheerio and thanks for visiting.
