white radish, kawaii and clematis


White radishes are delicious – spicy with the right amount of heat, and none of the lingering after taste that the reds provide.  And, speaking of white radishes, what do you think of these German “Radish” steins?  They are very old and in mint condition and I’d love to learn of their value … can anyone help?  The happy and sad faces keep me company in the kitchen where they grin/frown from a shelf above the sink.

I joined the Pink Chalk Kawaii club last month.  It’s so much fun to receive the small fabrics – I immediately started piecing tiny blocks where the special fabrics can be featured.  I am working completely from the tub that I keep under the cutting table for scraps – too small to fold, too big to toss.  Sometimes you know before you know.

Josephine clematis is gorgeous this season – she never disappoints.  The yellow tree peony is the last to bloom and the most lovely.  An investment well made!  I always hope for a cool spring so that they can be enjoyed a bit longer.

Oh!  You saw the Anna Maria Horner fabric, didn’t you?  I have been waiting for this line, ‘Pretty Potent’ since I first caught a glimpse.  Anna Maria talks about the healing properties in the design work on her blog – it’s a good read.


Sunday morning with a finished quilt (or almost, there is a small bit of binding to go).  I love this quilt, it just says summer and hammock time to me.

    Oh my goodness! I think we may be kindred spirits! You need to go and look at my “autumn quilt” that I just finished, not so much the front but the back! I cannot believe it, I have goosebumps!

      Hi Bec,
      it’s uncanny! We both loved the ‘nummers’ and figured out how to get the maximum use from it! Next time I’m at Ikea I am getting a bolt! Your quilt is lovely.


  3. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was good. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not
    already 😉 Cheers!
