I've missed you blue sky
The trees have missed you
The blossoms welcome you
The flowers are so pleased to see you
And my vege patch is itching to be planted and warmed by you
I'm so glad you're back sunshine. I can't wait to get warm again.
Around the house
A few people mistook the writing on
my last post
for my own handwriting.
When they found out it was actually printed from the computer, they wanted to know what fonts I was using.
Thought I'd share my little secret here:
Quite literally a font of goodness with thousands of FREE fonts to explore.
The fonts I have used in this project include:
Jellyka - St-Andrew's Queen
Sunshine in my soul
The Quickest Shift ... and
Have fun exploring this fabulous resource.

Just an idea
I have fallen in love with
Down Under Doll Quilt Swap
I had a thought ....
What would happen if I made this quilt 9 times and stitched them together to create one large quilt?
Or ... if I made the blocks smaller but made 25 of them?
I'm liking where this is going ... although I have no time to act on it! Too much other stuff to get finished!!
