How's this for a jar full of fun?!

Good morning, how are you this Thursday?
A day off for me today before working tomorrow and Saturday.  A trip to the hairdressers is planned later then maybe some baking and housework.
I wanted to show you this today, earlier this week I bought this from my lovely work colleague Roma who is a Jamie at home cool is it?

It is a Jamie Oliver product and you can see it here.
It is huge and fab for making up drinks for the kids and storing in the fridge or how about when having friends around?  I'm thinking cocktails or maybe iced tea?
I just think it is so retro and fun, guess you could say I am looking forwards to using it especially for the alcohol!  Is that wrong?

When I made the dog quilt last week I also mentioned another fleece colour.  Can you remember what colour?
I'll give you a clue....It's a colour I don't use very often at all.

I hope this dog realises I am getting in touch with my feminine side as she is the only other female in the house.  I find pink scary!  LOL.
I have enough patchwork left to make a second blanket the same size but with a pink background.  I will keep you informed of my progress.  I should also have enough green and pink fleece left to make a couple of plain blankets to match.  That should mean the dog is sorted for a while as long as she doesn't take to chewing them!
The boys think I prefer the dog over them now and have insisted that they'd both like quilts for the winter months.  Better get my thinking cap on.

Well, that's all from me today folks, enjoy your Thursday and don't forget to join me tomorrow in sharing your oldie.  I shall be at work during the day but will check in with you later.
Happy crafting.  x

Erika love the jar, yes it has lots of uses. Now that pink is lovely - not scary but that's me. Spoilt dog I think the boys are thinking, but I bet if you had asked them if they would like a quilt for there beds before you made the dog one the answer would have been " No WAY ". Hope work isn't to bad. I am hoping to post and oldie tomorrow.

Hi Erika,
I'm looking forward to seeing this one.
My you must have one of the best looked after dogs in the country, as you say hope she doesn't eat or make holes in it.
We had a dog once she was a retriever, now she never chewed anything, except once my Son had bought a pair of boat shoes I think that's what they were called.
You know the sort which almost like a moccasin with a leather cord that ran around the top of the shoe ,and round the back.
Well when I got home from work one day she had eaten all the shoe except for the eyelets and the sole.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
