Lucky, lucky, lucky

Two really lucky things happened this month - one was having my laptop slide off the dining table onto the floor with a tremendously loud bang without any apparent damage (wipes sweat off forehead) and the other was winning this amazing bundle of new kona colours from Robert Kaufman.  They come from Judith of Needles and Lemons whose lovely blog was one of the first I ever read.   They are really beautiful fabrics and pretty much quadrupled my meagre supply of solids - I actually had to go and get a drawer from Ikea.  I am so grateful and promise to try to make good use of them. 


PS, do you think Birds and Bees is a good name for a beer?:-)

  8. Zowie, Batman I love those solid colors! BIG solid color fan here.
    I wonder if drinking that beer LEADS to birds and bees type behavior! (Just a thought.)
    The local beer here is National Bohemian. I can attest that I have the urge to play bongos Bohemian-like after having one. ;)
    Did I mention how much I like those skid colors?

  16. They always say things come in threes, so look out for your next lucky happening! And it's funny you should ask about the beer name. I know nothing about beers or their names, but recently heard an interview about it when they were saying how critical the name of a beer was, and to look at the example of Cobra Beer, which started out as Panther Beer, but the name didn't work so they changed it and then sales took off. So, no idea whether it's a good name, but it's critical!

  18. Fantastic! I'm sure you're going to make excellent use of these, but no pressure! Enjoy & wait for the need to arise! Drink one of those beers while you wait! I wax going to draw attention to that lovely looking label & ask, then I thought oh no it's from the giveaway blog, but then you commented-so lovely looking altogether!

  19. Also maybe it's not the thing to do but just wondered about your views on the Scottish independence vote? Feel free to ignore the question if it's irrelevant or rude or something!
