A few of my favorite things

I love Flickr. I love that people post their pretty pictures up there for me to enjoy and be inspired by.


From left to right, top to bottom:

French knot sheep from incy | wincy, Alphabet sampler and Bee button from miss woolly's things, Log cabin pin cushion from moving hands, Stocking from make it snappy!, Pin cushions from Joanna's Scraps, Light and dark log cabin squares from twiddletails, crowns from SouleMama.

(Note the many log cabin items...I think I may have a crush. We'll see if it turns into anything.)

The very talented Alex of Moonstitches has posted pictures from the 2008 Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival here on Flickr. The quilts are incredible even in the little pictures. I can't imagine what they look like in person.

(This little pic on the left is from her Flickr pool as well.)

And here's a good way to waste time between Flickr surfing and blog reading: FreeRice.com

A vocabulary quiz where each word you get right, 20 grains of rice is donated through the United Nations to help end world hunger. Saving the world can be fun!

Hi Jen!

I saw your query on Posie gets cozy re: her studio wall paint color - if you dig around Alicia's FAQ's, it's there: it is River's Bend by Behr (Home Depot Brand.
I am mad for turquoise and after leaving sunny Califonia for the Pacific Northwest, I am hungry for sunny colors, so I am painting a wall of my bedroom with this tomorrow!!

Flickr is amazing! There are so many talented folks out there. Thanks for sharing Free Rice. What a neat idea. I tried it out. I'm going to share it with all the high school kids I work with. What a great way to expand your mind and save the world at the same time!

Wow, thanks for posting my little log cabin squares! I'm entering that quilt in our local quilt show this spring.
