My day started with some happy mail :o)  I recently won a giveaway over at my friend Janice’s blog, and my goodies arrived today.  Although Janice is the artist behind the gorgeous Booh Bears, this isn’t a blog dedicated to them, but she was giving away the makings of some lovely bears to one lucky winner (ME!)  Little cogs are already whirring away in my brain (and little puffs of smoke escaping) as I conjour up what these pieces may become (for instance, I’m seeing those bottom 3 bits together).  Perfectly timed for a planned foray into some smaller bears…

The top 4 pieces here arrived today.  I’d ordered a fat quarter of each previously, but then I realised I’d need more for my grand quilt plan…  So here’s my chosen collection for a sampler quilt, traditional patterns on one side, modern on the other.  The main colours will be the Kona solids, with the patterened ones as accents.  The greens match IRL incidentally!

What I would REALLY love is to win the Go Baby! from Little Cottage Comforts to speed up a few cutting steps along the way, keep everything crossed for me please!

Moving on to other projects on the go, now I promise you I’m not taking up any kind of bear cruelty here, however, it’s the only way I can think of for the next step in the new technique I’m trying for this wee panda!  She’s looking a little forlorn right now, but things should perk right up for her soon…

And finally. my dad also sent me a photo he took just to prove I was really there and manning the stall on Sunday:
