Happy Earth Day! In celebration of this earthy day, I looked for a tree in my travels today filled with blossoms. Found one! Actually, I found several. I’m not sure if this reflects the health of the tree, but this tree had many snails on it. EW. I’m not sure if counting 6 snails in a small area of a tree counts as an infestation, or if these snails just have good taste, but if I was a snail, I would TOTALLY move in to this tree. Look how pretty! [click to continue…]
It’s coming along slowly, but surely. One day, it will look like this. I will keep at it! Whenever I’m watching TV or, those days when I have some elbow room on the skytrain, I’ll pull it out and stitch, stitch, stitch, stitch some more.
These days, the shows I can’t wait for include:
- Mad Men – Season 7 – Wow. Don Draper has really turned unemployment into Funemployment. What a boring man. Also, he’s still getting paid and not doing anything exciting but eating Ritz Crackers and watching TV. He needs to shake it up A LOT.
- Game of Thrones – this season is my favourite so far. So much action! So much poison! So much delicious, delicious revenge! While this show seemed to cater a lot to 14 year old boys (i.e. so many bare boobs) in the past, this season I am IN. Bare boobs and all! Not mine. Theirs. Just to be clear.
- Nurse Jackie – Love Edie Falco, this show is a heart breaker. Just when you think she’s not abusing drugs anymore…she’s back on the pills. NO! Please Jackie, NO! UGH. I’m not quite sure why I keep watching it. I am so disappointed in her over and over. She’s not even that likeable, but still, I guess it’s because she’s the underdog, you really hope she turns herself around. So far, not so much.
After a fun morning of hanging out with some pals, we headed home and I spent a couple of hours cutting and sewing up squares for my Sprinkle Quilt I started at the sew in last weekend with Happy Zombie. That was only last week, but it feels like it was a dream somehow. Probably because that weekend sped by WAY too fast. And so did this one, now that I think of it. I need a time machine or a time slower-downer. I’m sure there’s one out there. I’m just running out of time way too often these days.
But, back to this quilt. I decided to use some camera and film fabric I’ve collected and been gifted over the last year or so.

Mike Browne got a haircut day (I waited endlessly in the barber shop for him. Good Lord that took forever.) and when he was FINALLY finished, he definitely had the haircut straight out of Band of Brothers.
My favourite quote from that mini-series:
Captain Sobel, we salute the rank, not the man.
