Lucy and I decided to Bear Paw together with a view to making quilts over the next year and we’d love you to bear with us. You can pick up a badge here or join the flickr group. I’m not sooo enthusiastic about this trial block but it does look better in real life than this night time photo. I’ll make some more and see how it plays with them…
I do love cow-parsley, though, for one month of the year. And this is the month. Even on a dull, rainy day and photographed through the kitchen window it manages to look pretty.
And, finally for this week, Dry Cleaners. Have you noticed that Dry Cleaners always have a sign in their window saying “Professional Dry Cleaners”. Have you ever met an amateur Dry Cleaner? Is this an international thing or just her in the UK?
Have you visited Cindy and shared you week’s random musings yet?

I LOVE this block! The green fabric is dreamy.
how exciting, looking forward to following progress!
Oh I completely share your love of cow parsley. The council here has let one corner of a local park turn over to it and it's really beautiful. Your bear paw looks lovely and spring like – looking forward to seeing its progress.
When I saw this block on the blog-lovin' feed, I had to click on it. I really like the way the fabric plays in this block. We have only “professional dry cleaner” businesses here in my corner of the USA, too … although the last job they did on my winter coat looked pretty amateurish to me. I have never seen (or known I was looking at it if I have) cow parsley before. It looks very pretty in this picture. Thanks for sharing this random goodness … :) Pat
Haha – funny about the dry cleaners! Loving seeing the bear paws popping up!

Love the block!! Maybe we are the amateur dry cleaners (as in the ones that ignore the labels?)
We have an “Organic” dry cleaner near my home. I wonder where they keep their rock.
Love the bear paws! Also just want to let you know that I’ve nominated you for a Wonderful Team Member Readership Award (great name hey!) I’ve put a link to your blog on my post, don't feel obliged to accept! Amy
LOL!! So true about the Dry Cleaner. I LOVE your kitchen window view! So very pretty! Your bear paw looks fantastic, Janine! Love it!
I think the green and blue is lovely. Looking forward to seeing the bear quilts progress.
Looks awesome! I dont think I've ever noticed dry cleaners being labeled professional, but I tend to miss things like that. I'll certainly be looking around. :)

I can't believe that's a trial?! It looks brilliant!
I love cow parsley too, so pretty, there was lots on our drive back from Wales!
What is with the dry cleaners, so funny!!

Great block! No we only have “professional” dry cleaners here in the US too
