The colours will suit my hexie project but they also remind me of Aladdin and my daughter's favourite Disney was Aladdin and now she is having her own little rugrat.........a possibility? Or when I mix my Little Apples and Sherbet Pips together, another possibility? Oh what a delicious dilemma.
I also have a finished project.....drumroll.........but keeping that for Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day tomorrow.

Getting older is weird, you still feel much the same inside your head but the body has forgotten how to work properly..............however, there are fringe benefits, oh, yes...................still with me?
Off to have a nanny nap...............

When Shirley was posting her wips on flickr she offered a choice of this little beauty or a wonky star quilt - as you will have spotted the wee pincushion, you will see I scored a wonky star too...win win.

There has been a flurry of excitement in Glasgow this past week because...Brad Pitt and his production company have been filming scenes for his new film World War Z.
My husband has been in the thick of it as he works in the actual street fiming has been taking place........his building (HMRC) has been transformed temporarily into an accountant's offce - this apparantly has caused much mirth which I think Hadley might understand.
His street, and George Square have been disguised as downtown Philadelphia, can't imagine why they can't just use......hey, Philadelphia, and can't begin to imagine the cost.............filming has also taken place in Malta and Cornwall.
Big Al (my DH) managed to take some snaps on the way to work and from his office window..thought you might like to share the fun.

Soon, we'll be tweaking up the thermostat, dusting off the hot water bottle and bringing this baby out from its summer sleep...............

In the evening I worked on a few more "whole" hexies and one wee pieced one - couldn't have a hexie free day now could I?
So rise and shine Monday, peeped into my sewing room and the messy fairies have wreaked havoc in the night - it looks worse than it did yesterday.................the more room you have the more mess you make.........
I will transform it today - my classes all start up this week, a lovely new batch of beginners on Wednesday night for me to convert to our obsession..lol, and a return to class of all my lovely regluars. New term, new projects!!
BUT, back to class / school - makes me feel like summer must be over....................

I have quite hurriedly put together this little tute with some orphan HSTs I had lying about - please excuse the horrid fabric, and the photo quality......
Go on, try it, it's a magic moment!! (I don't get out much)

But the overwhelming feature of July was the introduction by Lynne and Gayle of theHexalong - oh how I have avoided doing English paper piecing............why would you, thought I, when there are perfectly good rotary cutters and sewing machines at our fingertips...........I have missed out.Who knew it was such fun, and so versatile - I so wish I had paid more attention to maths in school - wouldn't it be great to include a bit of EPP in the school curriculum?
As usual, I am linking to Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day over at Lily's Quilts.
