Latest Finish and Something that changed me this week.

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been pottering around but haven’t really had much to talk about lately.

I need a new computer 😦
My lappy is on the blink and since Mr Manic left his job a couple of months ago we can’t afford it right now …
And when I have someone hanging round the house I feel lazy and lethargic myself.
Cross your fingers for me that he gets a positive answer to the latest job he is shortlisted for!

Anyhow, here is the gorgeous quilt I just finished!! The front :

The back :

I used the pattern “Playground” from Camille Roskelley’s book Simply Retro and pieced a few more for the back πŸ™‚
I used a scrappy binding and finished last night! πŸ™‚
It was professionally quilted by Fiona from Quilting By Fiona who has a facebook page HERE!
Fiona quilted the most amazing animal design with lions, giraffes and elephants – perfect for this project!
And she also made me a gorgeous Owl softie with some left over fabric. This gorgeous bundle went to an even more gorgeous little man today.
Which means my design wall is almost empty and I get to start a new project in the morning! Squeee!!

In the title I promised something that changed me this week … You may have seen it, even!
There is the most amazing clip doing the rounds on the internet.

It’s a 62 second snippit of pure beauty and genius from Jim Carrey. Extracted from a 26 minute graduation speech he recently made, it seriously changed me. Here it is!! :

Absolutely INSPIRING!

Here is the best bit {I made this myself and it’s now my facebook pic! πŸ˜€ }

BEST QUOTE EVER

I hope you all take a chance today and do something you LOVE!
