I took this picture in the summer time at an airport somewhere. There was a display on adult colouring books. Yep - even at the airport. And there were markers/crayons as well. Just the thing to keep you entertained on a long flight.

Now here is the thing - those adult colouring books have exploded. If you go to Chapter's there are MANY MANY versions of these adult colouring books and it seems that every time I go - there are more. I have resisted - well maybe I bought one, but there is a problem with most of them. The images are extremely busy. Yet these books are promoted as relaxing! Well - if I had a picture with a lot of little bits - I am not sure that I would find that relaxing to colour. The book that I chose has big images in it. I believe I heard someone say a while back that they prefer children's colouring books because the images are HUGE and that may be the most relaxing of all!!!!!
Here is the link to the article I wrote in the summer (QUILTSocial) where I mentioned the adult colouring books.
And here is an article about adult colouring books! Oh yes - they are HUGE!!!!!!
Last Friday I went out for dinner to celebrate Maria's birthday! Half (OK - more than half) of the table was her family and then there were the quilters on the other end of the table. It was especially nice for me as I don't get to chat as much with my sewing buddies since I started to work. Had a blast and big thanks to Tamara (Maria's daughter) for inviting the quilters along!!!!

It was a great evening out.
And if you still want to have fun - did you know that Northcott has a line of fabric called Girls Just Want to Have Fun????? It will be hitting stores in April 2016.
On that note - I'm off to work to see what fun awaits me!!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!
