pick pick me me!! I love amy sedaris. but not as much as I love her brother david. he is the most talented hilarious little man with the voice of a muppet. stories of their lives growing up – and stories of her craziness have stuck with me for years. I wish I was them, with their talent…..basically!!

Amy Sedaris is my personal hero! I love her book. I think in order to do this fabric justice I would have to make a paper pieced bunny in white on the patterned color background. Maybe a cake too? I love this lady. So excited a about this fabric!

A new skirt for my daughter. I make her a patchwork skirt every other year before Easter. I make them big enough to wear for two years, one year as a nearly floor length skirt and the next as a shorter skirt. She loves them :-D

I’m trying to channel Ms. Sedaris and imagine what she would like to make with these fabrics, but it’s all way too inappropriate for this forum :). Honestly though I would love to make another cushion for our couch.

Just found a link to your blog, love that name ‘a cuppa and a catch up’……..just sounds so friendly.

If I won this gorgeous fabric I would love to make something modern and fresh for my new grandchild expected in March, maybe a fabric bucket to hold all those nappy necessities or maybe a colourful cot bumper and a couple of bibs.

Off to have a cuppa and a catch up with your fab blog.
