Mo Manning, Doodle Palace, Dustin Pike and a quilt update!

This was scraping in under the wire!  This is my entry to Doodle Palace challenge - which was to show more than one score...ok, I did say it was a quick make! Did it in my lunch break!  I just really didnt want to let the girlies down!


And covered by the flap is this fabby Mo Manning image!  This is one of my fave images - just makes me laugh so much!

The flap is held shut with a funny paperclippy thing - got a box with them in from Tesco!

These were the cards that my son's class mates made for Delia.  There was an appeal over on Dustin Pike's site and he offered some lovely owl images for the cards.  These have been sent over to Delia...ooo name check for the school - Raphael Independent School in Hornchurch!

And this final pic is an update for the girlies over at Order of the Opus Gluei - I took part in their soup and nuts challenge a while ago.  The idea was to talk about something you were starting (the soup!) and something you had finished (the nuts!).  I started this quilt...here are the triangles which are now all made (just have to do the smaller ones...and everything else!).  My finished was a homemade carrot and coriander soup.  Someone asked for the recipe....some carrots (quite alot if you want alot of soup!) and some coriander (not so much!) - some veggie stock.  mmmmmm - thats it really!  Oh and some onions!  If you feel like putting them in!  hee hee!

Gotta go and do some more work now!

thanks for looking

Your supwise card is adorable. I love the Valentines your son's class made. There is something so heartwarming about homemade Valentines. As to your soup, that is exactly the kind of recipe I use. (hehehehehehe) Your quilt is coming along nicely. I think the hardest part is getting all the pieces ready to be sewn together. Thank you for the update. And thank you for playing with us at Opus Gluei. We love all the friends we get.
