Favourite Things Friday

I am joining in with Shay's "Favourite Things Friday" today. I often think about joining in, but today I have to decided to be all about action, not thinking! So, what of my many favourite things am I going to share with you? (I really do have many favourite things. That's a little bit heartwarming to know I am so very privileged and live such a great life!) Well, it's a touch jumping the gun, but I am thrilled to be going to "Inspired Stitches" next weekend in Adelaide.


A Natalie Lymer designed stitchery I stitched last year

It is run by Sarah of Quilt Fabric Delights and I always have such a great time. You can see what I made last year. The year before I didn't finish anything, so I'm pretty proud of that tiny little iPhone cover! You can read about my Inspired Stitches exploits here, and here. So next week I will be off to Adelaide to stitch and catch up with all my Adelaide kids!

iPhone Update: It's working! (For no apparent reason, if you are techno-savvy. I am not, and have the perfect explaination.) Now before you techno-savvy readers get all knowing about what happened I must let you know that the very savvy Bradley and the phone shop dude both checked the phone out and it was definitely dead. D. E. A. D. Dead. So much so that we bought a very cheap phone to put my simcard in. As I was about to transfer the simcard when we got home I figured I would have one last go, and it turned on! This phenomena has been witnessed before at my house with various other pieces of electronic equipment. I call it the "tired" effect. Sometimes when a dvd player would stop working I would declare that it was tired and put it in a cupboard for a little rest. (See, it makes no sense if you are techno-savvy, but fortunately I don't understand how these things work!) Which is what I did with my phone. Why wouldn't my phone be tired? I use it a lot! So, into the cupboard it went and now it is working perfectly. Actually, feeling a little tired myself. Where is that cupboard?

Good to know that you have your phone working again, a little rest is a good thing. I'll see you at IS next weekend.

I adore your iphone cover...so sweet! Good job the phone is working again after a rest, I would be lost if anything happened to mine....I use it all the time, funnily enough not as a phone though ;-)

Enjoy your stitching trip!

Amanda said...

See you there it might have to be my FTF next week though I don't have anything finished from either years.

Lotti said...

You jet setter you .... although you are probably going by car ... can you then be called a car setter ... LOL .... anyway love your iphone cover ... very cute. funny how things do that sometimes, won't work and then as if by magic suddenly start working again. I think it's the fairies that do it.

Michelle Ridgway said...

I love your I phone pouch - Natalie designs such lovely pieces. I am with you and not techno savvy at all. In fact I am so impressed with myself that I have a blog. LOL!
Have a wonderful time in Adelaide.
Michelle xx

Larri @ Seams Inspired said...

Pretty phone pouch! You're too funny about the techno-rest. Kinda wish I could turn my brain off and give it a rest some days. LOL

Have fun on your trip! I hope to visit Adelaide...and anywhere else in Australia...one day. ☺ Happy FTF!

Jill said...

I'll see you there Kris! Enjoyed it so much last year I'm going again. Jill x

Kirsten's Cooking said...

that is nearly the cutest thing I've ever seen! I love how you have your phone hanging on a hook. That would be great as I always miss calls because I can never find my phone.

Adelaide must be a quilting capital - I keep hearing about sessions there. Have a great time.

Shay said...

You crack me up with your technology knowledge and ideas. I often say the same thing- that something is tired or being tempremental and give it a rest. I'm glad the iPhone is working again whatever the reason is.
(Sometimes it's better not to know how technology works )

Ok onto your Inspired Stitches project - which is very pretty. I completely forgot about Inspired Stitches until Jindi's mum mentioned it to me a fortnight ago. Im sure you 'll have a blast and come home with another completed project. Have fun!

Marg said...

Such a cute cover Kris. I hope you have lots of fun in Adelaide next weekend.
