"Makes Me Happy Monday" Number 11.

Hello,

Happy Monday to you all. I just love doing these postings. There is always so much to be happy about. These postings really get you thinking. It is always interesting to read the other bloggers and there thoughts on what is making them happy. This past week I have had a couple of things that have really made me happy. The first one would have to be that my "Crow Quilt" was published in the latest edition of Australian Homespun No.82 Volume 11.3. That really made everyone happy here at Kainga on Friday,we even celebrated with a special tea from a local restaurant.
A few days prior to that I received a envelope with my pattern that I had ordered from Paula. Paula was kind enough to pop an extra pattern called "Jacks on Six" which has Sunflowers in it. I can't wait to get started on these. Thanks so much Paula you made me happy on a Wednesday.I made the ceramic jug way back in 1996,in the days I used to go to ceramics once a week.

With the arrival of Autumn the roses are having a wonderful time in the garden. I picked this posy of roses this morning. They are called "St Cecilia" it is a David Austin rose from 1987. It has deeply cupped blooms of soft buff-pink with a hint of apricot,paling with age. The flowers are help upon gracefully arching stems. It has a strong myrrh fragrance. The perfume is presently making my kitchen smell just beautiful.
I hope you all have a "Happy Monday" and a fantastic week.
Happy days.
Bev C

That crow is so cool. I bought that pattern from Paula too. I haven't made it yet but ogle it from time to time.

Love the post!

What fun things to be happy about! Congrats on your crow quilt being published. That is big news. I used to do ceramics exactly like that about 15 years ago - how cool to discover these things we have in common. Happy day!
