While making this post, I realized I have almost no yellow flowers in my garden (at least no summer flowers), I have no yellow things in my wardrobe and very little yellow fabrics or yarn...
And it's not because I have a dislike for yellow, I just tend towards blues, greens and pinks, I guess. But more of that later, next week another difficult one: orange!

And finally...

I finished my quilt! This really makes my day, it took me soooo long... It's hand pieced and hand quilted, I've never tried doing this with a sewing machine.

White week

This is something I saw on other blogs, and now I am going to do this myself: work around one colour every week. I start with a mosaic (with the link to every photo to give credit to the talented people on Flickr), and for the rest of the week I'll post pictures in and around my house.
This weeks' colour: WHITE (although I believe white's not really a colour...).
If you want to do this challenge yourself, please leave a comment with a link, so that everybody can enjoy your pictures.

1. louise watching sophie, 2. calla coasters, 3. shoes, 4. sheep - nude, 5. white& white, 6. lamb, 7. pouring, 8. Dandelion, 9. White Bear , 10. Untitled, 11. on the lookout, 12. white advent, 13. potential, 14. Vintage White buttons on wool heart, 15. Clouds, 16. magnolia pincushion

Yesterday, I received a parcel from the US, full of lovely presents!
Soft and beautiful merinos yarn, a tissue holder, two cat collars, cat treats and a nice card!
The tissue holder and collars were handmade, thank you so much, Carrie...
Here you can see Punt inspecting everything (cats are so curious!).

Mmm, what do I smell? (I opened one of the cat treats).

Look at all these goodies...
