Doings

Today I’m working on this…

And smelling this candle that smells just like Anthropologie.  I’m not even kidding, I’ve been on the search for a Anthropologie-ish smelling candle (that doesn’t cost 30 bucks) for a long time.  Problem solved thanks to this Pineapple & Jasmine candle found at TJ Maxx.   It smells so good I want to eat it.

And next I get to change the water of my son’s goldfish.  Who were treated to a pancake breakfast this morning……….literally.  Lets just say this isn’t the 1st pair of goldfish we’ve had this week.

I love your quilt! So pretty and fun. I have a Hello Betty Jelly Roll so maybe I can use it for this. Are your strips all the same size?

Great quilt! Hang in there on the fish. We went through a few until we got "goldie", a 24 cent carnival-grade fish that lasted 5 years.

Phyllis said...

ha ha ha! Goldfish are tough little creatures for sure.

I'm trying very hard to finish a small wall hanging and hope to post about it within the next two days!

Hi Allison!

Sorry for the mix-up with the giveaway!
Nikki is a follower of your blog, and I accidentally clicked on the wrong blog in her profile.

I hope she will send me her mailing address, as there is no email address listed on her own blog.

Nonetheless, it was a delight to discover your blog - you are amazingly talented and I love your quilts!

Best,
Stephanie

Did you actually light the candle or are you doing something tricky with that lamp? I'm always on the lookout for good scent tricks :)

On a separate note, I'm sitting here catching up on pages and pages of your blog. I love it! I've always admired your quilts on Flickr, so I'm really excited to be reading more about the process here on your blog. Thanks for all the inspiration!
