New Square pattern

Jane from papillongold blog has designed another lovely square and is having a competition to find a name for the pattern. I liked her butterfly square so was keen to try this new one out straight away and I actually think I like this one better.

Before I finish this post, I must give you an update on my Aero Garden. All but one of the little plants have now popped up and seem to be doing well. Here they are at 11 days ..

There's Italian basil, purple basil, mint, dill, chives, thyme and yet to come through is parsley.

Do you remember that old wives tale about what happens when you grow parsley? I think I'll be safe though but thinking of that tale reminded me of this email I received from a friend today.

Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

Q : I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes university.

Q : What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
A: Childbirth.

Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?

Q : My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labour, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a cyclone might be called an air current.

Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

Q : Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labour?
A: Not unless the word 'child support payment' means anything to you.

Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.

Q : Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby's nappy very quickly.

Q : Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in university


  1. The square is lovely and sits square if you know what I mean :))
    Jane certainly has a nack in creating new patterns.:))

  2. I love the pink dorothy and the baby jokes are funny. Jane

  3. The colors are so vibrant in your square....beautiful. The baby Q and A's are hilarious. They'd be great to include in a baby shower card.
