And they danced by the light of the moon...

Wooohoo! It's Friday!!! And we're off to visit our best friend Lucy over at Charm About You. But first,  a little bit of nonsense to get ready for Lucy's finish. Do you know this Edward Lear poem?

Owl and Pussycat by Helen Godden
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
    In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
    Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
    And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
      What a beautiful Pussy you are,
          You are,
          You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Pussy said to the Owl, 'You elegant fowl!
    How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
    But what shall we do for a ring?'
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
    To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
    With a ring at the end of his nose,
          His nose,
          His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
    Your ring?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were married next day
    By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
    Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
    They danced by the light of the moon,
          The moon,
          The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

M-R is so much cooler than me. She suggested this song - Chasing Owl's Wedding Song. I think you've picked up the theme of Lucy's quilt by now. So head on over to Charm About You for Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday!

Flutterby Friday

Is it Friday yet? Not quite but we're impatient for it! And so is MsMidge who is respecting the Canadian half of this blog (even while offending fellow Australian ears) by giving us Mariah Carey's butterfly as the soundtrack to her finish... Check out TGIFF at MsMidge's place... The party's on!!!

TGIFF! Is On Over at Quilt Matters...Because I Said So

This week's TGIFF! celebration is over at Quilt Matters where I'm sharing my Seeing The Forest quilt. It's Mother's Day this weekend here in Canada, the U.S. and many other countries around the world. In honour of Mother's Day, I thought I'd share this 'classic' because sometimes when you are in the throes of parenting, it's hard to see the forest for the trees (like how I did that?). :D

I hope you moms out there get some time to yourselves this weekend, perhaps even some quilting time! :)

Tripping out for TGIFF

We're going on a trip. It's going to be a bit psychedelic. (No, not THAT kind of trip...). TGIFF this week is being hosted by McKenna of TextileDiva  who has a psychedelic 70s finish to show off. It looks a little bit like this... 
No, ok, really, it looks like this:

Be sure to check out McKenna's post for the whole story and visit some of the linkys! Thank goodness it's Friday!!!
