What a load of scrap.....

Fraser the Postman brought yesterday!

The 2 Moda Scrap Bags I ordered from Hulu arrived and they couldn't have been better if I'd picked them out myself.   The first one......


.... is Moda Martinique.  This one is the jackpot of all scrap bags!  There are 31 strips each 32" long and all 3" wide!    My first thought was to use it for applique in this....


but I'm having second thoughts as I've already collected enough Martinique for this one.  It's Bunny Hill Designs Tiny Town BOM.  Is there any end to what I have hidden away here!

Besides it's such a good scrap bag it deserves to be a project all on it's own.  I'll have to put my thinking cap on.... oh heck.... I haven't made one yet!

The second bag.......

is Moda Bliss.   Some of the strips are quite thin but as I've already earmarked this for more flowers for the Vignette Quilt it's no problem.   I can feel another bout of hexie cutting coming on.

Before I go I want to show you what Heaven on a plate looks like.....


it may look like good old baked beans on toast to you but it's Heaven on Earth to me.   I've had the most stinking cold known to man for the last 5 days.   I've not been eating.... till lunchtime today when I created this delicacy.   I finally got to actually taste food!  Oh Joy!!    I'm not quite sure that I'll enjoy the after effects of so many beans but what the heck..... they were good!

I'll leave you with another hungry girl....


She's a Greater Spotted Woodpecker and yes I'm certain it's a girl not only because  shes pretty but because boys have an orange collar at the back of their neck.  It starts out when they are young as an orange spot on their head that migrates south as they grow up.   Ornitholigy 101 done for today!  

Hope you don't catch my cold from visiting.....

Till next time

Love that woodpecker shot! We have a woodpecker in the neighborhood and just hearing him tapper tap tap on the trees in the morning brings a smile to my face :)

I'm not sure if I am learning anything about the birdies, except cooing at them. I'll take the scrap bag yummies, but you can keep the beans on toast thanks! yeurgh! I do feel your pain being ill though, hope you are already better (lots of healthy vibes coming your way!). I had to be on a liquid diet a few days last week and was offered a cheese sandwich, I screwed my nose up because I needed like an entire roast leg of lamb to fill the cavern that was my stomach, but it was the single best cheese sandwich I have ever had :D

My scrap bags arrived this morning, so I'm doing a post on my blog and am naming and shaming you as a bad influence ;)
