I have never been a mistress, except a mistress of my own disasters (destiny), nor am I likely at this stage to become a mistress. I do however have a brain that seems to be constantly ticking over. I had never heard of the phrase "squirrel moment" until Sandra explained it to me, but it sums it up rather well.
Last weekend my sister brought me a unexpected present. A vase, vase or vase. That's what she thought she brought me, but she really brought me a squirrel. Or to be more exact, a white rabbit.
What do you see when you look at this vase?
To be honest, my husband saw tat. My sister joked that he would hate it, he smiled or grimaced politely. I saw a rabbit, a white rabbit. You see, I have a little stash of Alice in Wonderland fabric I bought last year, in a squirrel moment of all its own.
The tower of teacups made me think of the Mad Hatter's tea party.
oops, upside down, pretend it's down the rabbit hole
So is that my squirrel moment for April? Yes and no. It is but then another one crept in too. I just said I needed a breather after finishing the Belfast Bulletin. Next up to finish is my Writing from Whitehead. And all these project bags. And then I received an envelope, a lovely surprise. Sandra sent me some leftovers from her "plus playtime" quilt. She knows I love spotty fabric, and geometric fabric a close runner up.
And this coincides with Sandra's new qal which just happens to use this very pattern and fabric. How can I resist?
I had that very day been thinking I needed some new cushions for the garden. So, I am going to have a play with "plus playtime" and make not one quilt, but four cushions, or maybe 2 for the garden. For my writing corner. It will soon have as many soft furnishings as the house. That's what I like, our garden is just another room in the house, admittedly more pleasant when the sun shines.
