This weeks Scatterdays is brought to you by the Letter M.. textures, weapon, hobby are the themes in this weeks 'play'..

This is my faux 'MOTTLED MARBLE' benchtops..

These two photos are of weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION.. My Moggie, who has discovered Christmas tree's.. apparently baubles are too much of a temptation for moggies.. I come home the other day, and there were about 50 christmas decorations on the floor, I know, to look at him, you'd think he was an angel!

The other pic is of my MASTERCARD.. my DH would agree that my MASTERCARD is also a weapon of MASS DESTRUCTION...

The hobby one had me stumped... thinking thinking... then 'aha moment'.. MATERIAL! I definately think acquiring material is a hobby, the amount of time put into purchasing some fabrics, well lets face it, it should be considered an olympic sport..

On a sad note, M is also for mum.. My mum passed away last weekend of a heart attack, in Phuket on holidays.. to say this week has been awful is an understatement... Mum and dad are both home now, and my dad is now in hospital, suffering a mild heart attack...

Thank you to everyone who has emailed me about my mum, I have tried to email everyone personally, but it has been a bit overwhelming this week..

Take care,

Sh***&^&^$^% Lissa,
Are you ok? What a week indeed and you are not 200% yet yourself. Is ther anything we can do to help? Seems ridiculous I guess - the other end of the country and all that but i am thinkingof you my dear - keep an eye on the post. Just email if you need to vent.

Hi Lissa, your M things are great. I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum. I had a sad bit this week too, but it doesn't come close to yours. My thougths are with you.

So sorry to hear about your Mum, Lissa. It's amazing you found time for this, I hope it gave you a moment away from all that must be consuming you.

All these quilt-associated M for hobby ideas everyone has had, and none of them occurred to me - you're all so clever.

I hope your Dad is making progress now.
