feeling happy...and Project Improv

after all my wailing and gnashing of teeth yesterday vonnie found me a partner for the time for tea swap (many thanks m'dear) so I can breathe again...imagine if I'd been left out of that one...doesn't bear thinking about...phew!


I'm swapping with the equally tea-obsessed Laura ...looking forward to this one immensely

I've been noticing this ProjectImprov thing around blogland of late...I stumbled upon the source today and lo and behold the lovely Jacquelyn who is the brain behind the operation tells me I am not too late to join


read more about the ideas behind improv over at Jacquelyn's blog...to me it's a wonderful idea...gets me loosening up and sewing improv-y (not that much I do is non-improv-y but I do tend to hit a bit of a brick wall with patchwork) and also results in some quilts (which I am sure will be stupendous) for charity. It's a year long thing so plenty of time to improv (or even improve!) though the blocks for the charity quilts need to be done by April 1st

Jackie at CantonVillage has volunteered her services to do the actual quilting...the generousity of the blogfolk never ceases to amaze me...

you know what, it's not to late to join in...

and now, just for my sister who asked so nicely...

much more Vulcan than Romulan me thinks... no you look lovely.. your hair is georgeous.. I can't do short hair I'm too fat but I am going to go red on thursday and get a Bettie Page inspired cut, minus the s&m gear though...

I looked at the improv site but it kinda lost me after the word "quilt"

I don't think you look Romulan at all. The boys at work are all very loveable (well most of them) but I wouldn't have thought you can pay much attention to them where hair stuff is concerned! LOL! That is a lovely picture of you guys, I didn't quite manage to capture you both as you were moving too quickly!! That dress is so lovely and we are definitely going to have to find another excuse to wear it in the near future!!
