I'm Not Crazy.... My mother had me tested...

Anyone else out there LOVE the Big Bang Theory??? It's essential viewing in Casa de Lissa...


I just love that show and Sheldon on it, he is too darn funny.. My favourite line he says is "I am not crazy, my mother had me tested!'... and Bazinga! is a word that has entered Casa de Lissa's dictionary! We have bought Seasons 1&2 on DVD and the kids have watched it sooo many times..


Just had to share with you petals I got LOTS of happy mail today...


Happy Mail = SQUISHY MAIL!!!
I got four, yes FOUR parcels....





Two from the US - apple core stamp & Klojses (bad spellink there) and two ink pads.. I am going to hand piece these two quilts and cannot be bothered tracing around templates blah blah blah, too boring and life is too darn short.. so I got the Cindy Blackenberg templates from Pappy's Quilting...

The fabric on the left come from Quilt Fabric Closeouts, I am embaressed to say how much this fabric cost, there is 11 x .5 yards and one yard of another 6.5 yards for under $30 US I beleive (Plus postage very much a bargain for australia)

the stuffs at the front, well let me say.. I am bloomin confused.. I am in a Retreat Angel / Mortal Swap.. the angel sends to the mortal and at retreat all is revealed.. today I got a parcel from Victoria and one from New Zealand.. am I confused? Um yes! first parcel I got come from South Australia! either my angel is a get about or is super sneaky, I am going with super sneaky... I got Breast Cancer Scissors, they are Fiskars which are fantastic scissors.. I got two FQ's of red, I am trying to get reds/pinks for a project and the other parcel I got a 'Muffin' which 40 x charm squares, a fridge magnet and a very cute notepad! Am I spoiled or what??? Of course I deserve to be spoiled...


its four flippin weeks to my birthday, I could just be having a birthday with a ZERO in it... hmmm lets just say its before 5 but after 3...

Knee is sore as all get out, but I am sure I'll survive.. beast of a GP didn't give me a cortisone needle yesterday but some more pain killers! I dislocated my knee again on Saturday, but I am sure I'll survive to whinge another day!

Well now that you possums have got over the shock of me posting twice in the same week, let alone same month/trimester I am going to head off and play with fabric!!!!

I LOVE the Big Bang Theory! We have a group here at work that recaps every Tuesday morning -- it's pretty funny! Sheldon is definitely the fan favorite -- he's an amazing actor the way he sucks us all in. My fav is Paper Rock Scissors Lizard Spock! Great packages, you lucky petal!!!

I pretty much plan my week around Big Bang Theory! I've finally found a replacement for Seinfeld. The writing is brilliant.

Your so funny!!! I love Sheldon too. That is a funny line he used. I may have to use it too.
My birthday is right after you. And I am what comes right after 4 and before 6. YIKES. I better be getting some good fabric gifties is all I can say. Hubby has been warned.

Boy I love that squishy mail too, Lissa. I got a lovely parcel this week from the UK full of variegated Perle cotton threads. Just divine for my current stitching project.

I too LURVE Big Bang Theory and Sheldon is hysterical...
What a great squishy mail day...love the fabric and yes, you have been spoilt by your super sneaky Angel (really must work out how Squilters operates instead of just reading the digests!) but hey, we all deserve a little spoiling now and then...
Hope your poor old knee is behaving itself better this week.
