A nice day out, a mud bath and a bit of a 'Moo'......

I've got a bit of a 'mixed bag' of a post for you today and be warned it is a bit image heavy !

Firstly I've created an entry for the new challenge over on the Moo-Mania Blog, which has the theme 'Feathers' .


I used Pan Pastels, an Indigo Blu stamp set and a piece of Washi Tape with birds on it.

Yesterday I had a lovely day out at the South West Spring Quilt Festival held at Westpoint, Exeter.   There were a large number of stands and some truly scrumptious fabrics on sale - yes I did succumb to a few I have to confess !  It was great fun to have a play on a large quilting machine, so much easier to quilt a large project on one of these than on my regular sewing machine, but as I don't have around £9000 to spare, I guess I won't be getting one any time soon LOL  There were also some amazing quilts on display, I can't image me ever becoming skillful enough to create something like them, but I'm happy making less complicated patterns at the moment. 

Here's a few pix of a fabulous set of Fat Quarters of fabric I just couldn't resist, I love the colours and have a project in mind for them.

 
I particularly like these two designs, especially the cute octopus


This design has the fun title of 'Floaters and Sinkers'


And now to the mud bath referred to in the title

Miss Tilly returned from her walkies having taken a slight detour via a deep muddy patch, so it was straight into the sink for a bath

 
We are not amused.....
 

"Don't you dare laugh......."


That's it from me today, hope you've enjoyed reading this post and it left you with a smile on your face.

Fantastic post - great entry for the challenge. Those fabrics look totally beautiful - very envious that you were able to go to the show. Poor Tilly - we get the same dirty looks from Max when he has to have a bath LOL x

Your moo is fab - well you KNOW it would get the approval of the Purple Princess!!!! Your fat quarters are sooooo cool - love the octopus too. Poor TTWD - bet she felt better afterwards though.

We have a new puppy she might get to play with next visit ..... a Bichon Frise named Alfie!
