E, F and G FNSI

So last night I worked on my effing F. It took me all night and I didn't get to start on my effing G. I am using the colorful language that my mother could have sworn I said. It's obvious that she doesn't hear anything I say. Just kidding. She is captivated by my every word, just waiting to laugh her butt off at my unintentional stupidity. For example, when I was searching for fat quarters for my Egyptian quilt, I held one up and asked her if it was too African to be Egyptian. Her reply was, "Melissa, Egypt is in Africa."

Yes, that is a new Mary Engelbreit tin. It has a peep hole and I just love it!!! The fabric at the top is candy canes that mom and I found on our OSSH.

Last night we had pizza, bread sticks, freshly baked french bread (eaten on the way home from the grocery store) and McFlurrys from McDonald's. I have to say that there has to be something inside those things because the moment we started eating them we turned goofy. Okay, okay, more goofy than normal. I mentioned this to mom and she said "I don't think that's what they mean by 'Brain Freeze' Melissa." At that time she was not under its influence. When she did start slurping her McFlurry, she was giggling so much that she got it all over her clothes. She started out with one spot; I turned around and she had five new spots.

I love your blocks, they are so pretty! I know what you mean about Egypt and Africa....there is a huge difference between the images of northern Africa (where Egypt is) and southern Africa, isn't there?

What a hoot your are - I love your blog and your shenanigans. The candy cane alphabet is precious with your pieced blocks. I am reading Jennifer Chiaverini's book "The Lost Quilter" and the main character is just now working on making one of the blocks you made. (The one on the left.) She is calling it, "Birds in the Air." Neat, eh!?

..and the best part is that your Mum is posting you're "silly" (I dare not say "stupid" hahaha) remarks on the internet and that someone on the other side of the ocean sits laughing out loud at her pc.....
Your Mum is right though: Egypt is in Africa, but aren't Mums ALWAYS right??? In the end???
