Pat has come across a wonderful site that helps with colour palette selection, there are two main ways to search, mix a colour using their red/green/blue mixer which will then go fetch a pic and swatch that incorporates that colour or by clicking on a theme which will then bring up a selection of pics and palettes

Design seeds will even e-mail you a daily pic with the colour palette, such as the one below, just subscribe on their site at:

 Lots of hexies of all sizes and designs being stitched, Marcia with her little 1/2" flowers, Marguerite is making miles and piles of quilt as you go hexies and Fae has assembling her traditional designed hexies into a flimsey.


Stella bought along her stunning foundation pieced flimsey to share.  It is soon to be machine quilted by Fiona from Quilting Fairy, looking forward to seeing the completed quilt!
She was encouraged to create this beauty by her Darling's comment of  'you make quilts for everyone, why not one for our bed?'
Stella thought that she would just use scraps but found that wasn't the case as all, and more visits to the L.P.S were necessary to get just the right contrast and fabrics.  Now, what to turn those extra fabric scraps into?

Now, we always have a great afternoon tea, such as these delicious nibbles below.
Occasionally we are treated to something totally outstanding, and that was the case last Wednesday.
Tessa baked this marvelous Blueberry cake for us.
It was one of those that went above the 'oh this is nice' to WOW, THIS IS NICE, YUM!'
Tessa found a dessert and cake recipe book at the local library and so far has tried 3 cake recipes from it, all an astounding success.
So what is the name of the book?, dunno, forgot the name of the author.....(I know, I know, kicking myself...) but all is not lost.  Tessa will bring us along the name of the book and we can share.
