Messing About

In the interests of becoming a better blogger, I've challenged myself to be able to make my own blog button.

I've been playing around with picnik (which I've just worked out how to use and now I've found out they're closing down) and come up with a couple.

Don't get excited, there is no Butterfly Days or Faceted Jewels Quilt Along (oh there's a thought!), I just needed something to use as my background.

It's surprisingly easy to do a picture.  And even more surprisingly easy to do the grab thingie so you can add it to your blog.

But it's just a fun thing for now, THERE IS NO QUILTALONG!!   I'll take down the sidebar thingieme soon.  But I like that I made it! 

I got a very good tutorial from Between Naps On The Porch that was very easy to use.  Highly recommend her website. 

Anyway, must choof off.  Off to have coffee with my four year old and my ninetyone year old grannie.  Life is good.

Till tomorrow,



  1. I would join your non-existent quilt along--particularly Faceted Jewels. Very tempting!

  2. Thankyou!

    I've promptly stuck that block at the bottom of the pile and given it no more thought, so maybe a quiltalong will get me and my little backside in gear!

    It's always been such a favourite of mine, don't know why it took me so long to do it!

    Thanks again
