First of all, before I go into anything else, I wanted to say a big thankyou to all the people who commented on my quilt in the last post. It was so nice to get emails and comments, and requests for tutorials, and I'm still quite crap at replying to everyone in person, so please take this as my personal thankyou......

Today, like many days in this household, began with eggs.

Breakfast Sunday

So weird to think that I used to be vegan, and the very thought of eggs was enough to make me I eat them by the bucketload. In fact, the reason I don't post too often over at Breakfast Sunday, is because I get shamed by all those gorgeous, healthy, meusli and yoghurt/ fresh fruit combinations!

Though once the weather gets warmer, I'll be eating less stodgy things to start the day.....

Speaking of the end of winter, even though I look forward to some sunshine like a woman possesed, I will miss having a real, concrete reason to knit. I wandered into the Spotlight winter yarn sale the other day, and came home with all of this, mostly at 2 or 3 dollars a ball:

Wool Sale Yarn

Which I very quickly turned into a pair of these:

Hand Knitted Handwarmers

Which, in actual fact, I don't really need anymore. Brilliant. Bring on Spring, I say!

And just to bring this completely random post full of Nothing In Particular to a fitting end - Self Portrait Saturday.

I've been working on the tutorial for the quilt, by the way, but the photos I took turned out a bit shit due to lack of light, so I'm gonna have another go at it tommorrow...... promise!

Sleep well, my

Given that I'm the boss of Breakfast Sunday, I can say without fear of contradiction, that stodgy breakfasts are exceedingly welcome.

Thanks for your comment on my blog Leah. So glad to find another Armistead Maupin fan. You know I still don't get bloglines. I found it too complicated. In reality, it's probably the easiest thing. I shall have to give it another go. Love your little hand warmers!

That quilt? Wow. Like, just wow.

I want to see the tutorial just to bask a bit more in your reflected cleverness.

And speaking of reflections? You scrub up good for a country girl, don't you?
