quick, before the penguins are replaced!

I did a little more stashing recently :)   the two prints on the left are my favs from Aneela Hoey's Sew Stitchy.  I was pleasantly surprised to find them in a LQS.

The penguin fabric is from Joanns, and is for a penguin quilt for my youngest.  It has been a WIP for a little too long.  The other day he announced that he is thinking of changing his favorite animal from penguins to sea cucumbers.  This quilt needs to be finished before he loses interest.

I am not making a sea cucumber quilt.

{fyi, sea cucumbers spit out their guts when bothered by a predator, which then eats the guts and leaves the sea cucumber alone to grow new guts.  I'm fairly certain this explains his fascination with sea cucumbers.}

Linking up to Sunday Stash @ Finding Fifth :)

I was laughing to myself about this one because how many young boys even know about sea cucumbers let alone declare it to be their next favourite animal? Anyway I am pretty sure that Aneela Hooey does not have them in print although Heather Ross may do some in the future! Tell your son that my favourite bird is an adelie penguin...cutest little guys.

Haha, yeah, better speed up a little! The pins are my faves from the line, too, although the hexagons are a strong contender.

Love my geeky kids, but they do have the hardest favorite animals/creatures. My daughter is currently in love with dragons, snakes and raptors. Yeah, that's hard to find in fabric form. Better hurry on that penguin quilt!

This is one of the most hilarious posts I have ever read! Switching from penguins to sea cucumbers - hysterical!

Can't wait to see the finished penguin quilt - keep us updated!
