Is that cute or what! I love the the cute little tushie and the toes. Just love adipose toes!

I used the pattern posted by imaginarybf on crafty_tardis. This is a link to her post. Little Posie was slept on last night and tried to go to school today. Silly Adipose.

"Help me, Help me, Damsel in Distress,..."

I have been humming this little ditty for the last hour. I blame you Pren.

We are hand feeding Hummingbirds!!


I know this is not a great picture, and I will get a better one, but can you see the hummingbird!!!!

They don't even wait for us to hang up the feeder anymore! I just refilled the feeder, the second time today, and there were at least 6 trying to eat while I held the feeder. The ones in the air fight and squeak and are generally horrid to each other. And they all look you over very closely, just in case you might be hiding something sweet somewhere. They are very interested in ears, especially those attached to little girls.

Harry Potter Paper Piecing... Oh, I like it!

The delightful and talented Jenn posts paper pieced quilt square patterns one of her blogs H P Paper Piecing. Her patterns are absolutely beautiful, and really quite,... easy is not the word, they are complex, but they are well presented and quite manageable. I have sewn two of her patterns so far, Fawkes the Phoenix, above, and Harry's Scar, which I made into a hobo bag for a swap this past summer

I've never been interested in quilting per say, but paper piecing is really fascinating. It appeals very much to the little mathematician that lurks in me, yearning for symmetry and curves approximated by straight lines.

Jenn is running a contest, design and make your own paper pieced Harry Potter based Quilt square. I'm not quite ready to design, but I can't wait to see the entries.
