I took @magpie theme of flamingos and made a trio of flamingo blocks for my slowly growing economy quilt. And thank you so much magpie for starting this again for this year.

I think it would be really fun to showcase a fabric collection like this! They turned out really nice!

I have a collection of coffee fabrics staring at me from my shelf…they want to be used!

@Edel’s mushroom suggestion.
I have a wreath I completed earlier this year that is hanging on our front door:

A friend saw photos and said she loved it so this collection of moss, mini pine cones, snail shells, and crocheted mushrooms is going into the mail for her this week.

The teeny orange sticky-uppy moss things are my favourite. They are just upholstery thread bits with the ends knotted.

And for @AuFish’s “radiant” challenge I submit this teeny wee crocheted crown. I’ve been working on a pattern, I think this looks pretty cute!

@Magpie The orange really adds that perfect accent to the whole mushroom piece! Love the layers of detail on the tiny crown.

I’m assembling my green piece as soon as I find my needle.

I finished my response to @AIMR’s sweet challenge. I suspect that this probably wasn’t in her definition, but I have a sweet grandbaby on the way so I made this little set to go with the blanket I made recently.

And with the blanket:

I picked @Magpie’s “delicious” challenge.
Purim is happening this week, so I baked some hamantaschen with a bit of help from my daughter.
In Israel, the most traditional filling for these is poppy seeds, but we went with the ever popular chocolate filling.

I would eat that! Nomnomnom!

Poppyseed is my favorite, but would definitely try chocolate! (now I miss my farmers’ market, where one of the pastry vendors had these if I got there early enough.)
