Flimsy February

"My husband said if I were to buy any more fabric, he would leave me. I'm going to miss him!!" quilt saying

Hubby has been away for a week and my affair with my machine started as the door closed behind him. 
Result: I have a flimsy!

and another in the making!

and more finished Splendid sampler blocks! (a couple of these might have been from last week but I have a cat on my lap and can't get up to 
take another photo) 

and more houses for the 2017 Scrappy challenge

I love this colour - not blue nor green but in between

AND a new stack of fat flats from the 10 for $10 spotlight sale! I saved so much money I think I should go and save some more.

Especially while the quilting tool sale is still on because with all this flimsy cutting, the blade in my cutter wore a groove in the metal shaft and got stuck! 


Where was a man to fix these things when you need one!

Actually I did have a male visitor after retiring to bed one evening!!! 
A boy in blue came rapping at my door (several hours after the end of a loud and spicy argument next door) because they had a report of a domestic at MY address! 

With a soft spot for our law enforcers in uniform (memories of those 000 balls in my youth) I might have been thrilled but are they recruiting from primary school now! How did the police get so young
...or maybe I've gotten old.
