Be Attitudes, RAK Jan-March,

We’ve had a few snuggly evenings lately toasting marshmallows on old knitting needles. I’m still on the look out for a couple of toasting forks . Lovely time with the children just chatting. Would you believe we had a brief snow flurry (didn’t settle) this morning as the children were leaving for school on their bikes!

Walkers Crisps are bringing out a new flavour. For the 1st time the public get to vote which one it is. The children had a sleepover so we held our own tasting before voting online.
Builders Breakfast
Cajun Squirrel
Chilli and Chocolate
Crispy Duck and Hoisin
Fish and Chips
Onion Bhaji

We hid the flavours and got people’s reactions out of 10 before revealing the winner.

Overwhelmingly 1st was Builder’s Breakfast, and joint 2nd was Crispy Duck and Hoisin and Cajun Squirrel.
Dear Molly has tagged me.
The rules:

β€œOpen the 6th picture folder on your computer, open the 6th photo and blog it. Write something about it. Then tag 6 more people to do the same.”

Ok the above picture is of my craft room while cutting fabrics for the Be Attitudes Quilt.

I tag:

I had an idea back in January of doing a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) once a month this year. In these hard economic times I figured we could all do with a little cheer up in the post letting someone know that you are thinking of them. The above are my offerings for January February and March. All are in the post winging their way to people who have helped make Blogland a lovely place.

A big thank you to everyone who comments on my posts I promise I read every one and try to reply on your blogs. I have been surprised when people I leave comments for have emailed me. I am honestly not expecting this. Many of you are crafters and I love seeing all the wonderful things that come from your imaginations. It must be taking so much time from your Art, so please please don’t feel you have to email a reply to me every time.

I am delighted enough when any of you leave some feedback to the lastest mad idea I’ve come up with, or you appreciate some of the nature pics or we laugh together at my absent mindedness. This is a wonderful supportive community and I would hate to think of any one of you not making something in your mind because you have a “duty” all be it a pleasurable one. πŸ™‚ I hope you all understand where I am coming from and aren’t offended. Want to see what I’ve made?
Nancy Halvorsen’s Cider Mill fabrics. I was looking at how to arrange a border with the yellow on the left as the bottom of the quilt. This was meant to be a quick New Year project, but what with illness it lingered around. I did a major push on it the last few days and here it is.
January “Be Warm”. I need to add a carrot nose once I’ve bought one.
February “Be Loving”.
March “Be Positive”.
April “Be Kind”.
May “Be Patient”. I doubled some buttons so it looked like flowers in bloom on the right.
June “Be Creative”. This was a change from the original block of “Be Respectful”.
July “Be Honest”. I added a little slice of watermelon for her hand.
August “Be Prayerful”. I added a couple of star buttons to the sky.
September “Be Wise”. The words are a bit more English than the original of “Be Smart”. Owls are known as being a wise bird in folklore.
October “Be Forgiving”.
November “Be grateful”.
December “Be Joyful”.
I ironed the borders for these shots. πŸ™‚

Well this is the top finished at last. I used a Cider Mill charm pack for as many of the small details as I could so I could keep it all toned together. There are other Nancy Halvorsen fabrics in it too and the cream was in a parcel from Aims which she said I wasn’t allowed to blog about, only show what I did with it. πŸ™‚
