Too much yolk in my yellow

I spent a serious number of hours stitching my Rose Star blocks on the weekend. While my goal of making one block each night was overly ambitious, I managed to hand-stitch 2 blocks last week and 2 on the weekend. Phew!

I also stitched some of the hexagons into the centres of my blocks - they look great - and some of the yellow in-between bits - not so great. There's too much egg-yolk in the yellow so it looks like I'll be using egg-white ivory instead for the background.

But the weekend wasn't all craft therapy, I had some laughter therapy too and lots of it. I recently came across some clips from the Ellen show that showcased some hilarious "autocorrects" - you know, those mistakes that turn up in your text messages when your smart phone decides it's smarter than you are.

Warning: If you look at this Ellen clip you'll be hooked and end up wasting some serious time searching for more. But if you are in need of a good laugh (and let's face it, everyone does), these will do the trick.

All the autocorrect "fails" were sourced from a website called Damn You Autocorrect where you can find 100s more, but if you need a superfast pick-me-up watch this fantastic compilation of 55 fails in one video. (Some are a bit rude so it's not for kiddys.)

Take my advice and have your finger on the pause button - I guarantee you'll be laughing so hard you'll need to stop and catch your breath.


  1. Thanks for the chuckle! I can't wait to see your RS blocks!

  2. Oh Joanne, I really needed those laughs! I have tears streaming down my face and can't stop laughing!
