LDQ #78 Feeling Magenta

Is that title confusing you? I am a huge fan of The Golden Girls. I am often quoting the show, and sometimes people don’t even know it and they just think I made a clever joke, all on my own. No. I am not funny. I steal all my material, lol. There was an episode where Blanche describes a sad mood as “feeling magenta” because it’s a horrible colour and goes with nothing. This always made me laugh, even though I don’t particularly dislike the colour magenta. I am also, not feeling particularly sad at this moment, because I just finished talking to you, and you always cheer me up. I am working hard to stay positive and not let in the holiday blues.. or the holiday magentas..

Speaking of magenta, I talked a lot about Clue 2 of the En Provence mystery hosted by Bonnie Hunter. I am so enjoying the process! I hope I love the finished quilt as much. If not, someone is going to get a gift with way more work put into it than I normally do for a gift.. haha!

I have decided to suspend the Outlander quilt along until after the holidays. I will have the last few remaining blocks ready before the spring, and we will pick up and finish then. We all just have so much going on this season, I didn’t think you guys would mind a wee break. I know several of you will appreciate the time to catch up anyway. Thanks for playing along!

Thank you for all the lovely comments, friends!

Twilt On!

    I was scared when you mentioned ‘Mishap Monday”. If you mention that again, please make sure you indicate right away whether there was any blood, so I don’t imaging you laying on the floor bleeding.

    My idea is to pull the En Provence fabrics as I go along. I haven’t started yet, though, so…

    Just call me your friendly neighborhood fabric store, but I have tons of magenta. If you send me a small scrap, I can see what I have and send you some.

    I think Lady of the Lake (the name) is the perfect block for you. I have always thought that since I saw a photo of you with your beautiful hair. That and something with Outlander. Who knows what connections my mind is making ! LOL! I think I read somewhere that there was some association with Arthur and Guinevere and the name of the block. I like the block as well. You might want to use the tutorial I have on my block to make the bunches of HSTs.

    I have a nice Olisio iron and found that I am having a hard time lifting it now that my arm is hurting me. I saw a Clover iron on Amazon that I put on my Christmas list.

    Ready for the next episode! Thanks for your hard work.

    Looking forward to more Outlander blocks. I’m so sad that we have to wit until September for new shows!
