happy_zombie Today I discovered that the [insanely delicious] Cuties oranges have cute stickers on them! The one remaining virgin door of a kitchen cupboard has now been deflowered. #eatingwithglasseson 2d

happy_zombie RIP Dungeness Crab. I'm glad someone kind, thoughtful and artistic made you this pretty memorial. Had it been me, I would have placed you on a plate surrounded by browned butter. #astoriaOR #astoriariverwalk 4d

  •   hellofromcat Astoria was just on the news over here! - sea lions. I thought the vision was the sea lions in San Francisco but noooo, it was Astoria! 4d
  •   happy_zombie @hellofromcat That's so crazy awesome you got to see my little Astoria on your news in Australia! ( @kgwnews I think that must be from you guys!). How cute are we, right?! We are often called a mini-San Fransisco, and must be why I feel so at home here! (#bayareaexpat!) The sea lion explosion we're seeing is incredible! On one hand it's awesome, fun, and brings in tourism - on the other hand they are continually barking and the sound is maddening and deafening. 4d

happy_zombie Top half of @melissaaverinos' "MerMonica" (@elizabethagh named her that) work in progress. I commissioned Melissa to make it and I'm breathless and teary eyed over her. OMG it's so beautiful my heart feels like it's going to burst. If you're interested in commissioning Melissa she's got info on her flip gram post about this painting. You can also see the finished MerMonica. OHMYGOSH go now and look!! And now I must go wipe my eyes. 7d

happy_zombie I've spent over a month petting this bundle of yumminess - I think it's time to cut into this gorgeous Utopia (by the crazy talented and sweet @francesnewcombe!) and make something. Cutting into it will be so hard! Reaching out to my fellow fabric petters - what should I make? #secretsocietyoffabricpetters #artgalleryfabrics 7d

happy_zombie I missed National Puppy Day yesterday, but by the looks of my feed it appears to a two day event. :) This is my 8mo. old baby girl Smokey Björn - when she's not preventing forest fires, she's sweater modeling with her cat boyfriend, York. She's also my adventure girl trail walking companion. @smokeybjorn #goldenshepherd #goldenretriever + #germanshepherd 1w

happy_zombie Making progress on the @sublimestitching pattern I'm working on. Sunday night tv + handwork = awesomenight. Thinking of @bettycrockerass who's handworking right now, too. Because handwork rules. #jazzhands 1w

happy_zombie I'm always curious as to what's down a road I've never been on, and when I turned down this road I was rewarded with dozens of flower baskets hanging on a pasture fence. Roads less traveled are awesome! #astoriaOR 1w

happy_zombie Spotted this bike RV on our walk tonight. It's crazy BRILLIANT! Talk about a #tinyhouse! Side note: that cluster of rocks in the water on the left side of the pic - those rocks are actually a blanket of sea lions. Too much wow all at once! 2w

  •   jennyrenny79 Hey, my daughter was there on a field trip last week! 2w
  •   happy_zombie @jennyrenny79 I walk the trails there almost every day, and I saw school busses/field trip kids there (I think on Wednesday) - maybe yours was one of them! 2w
  •   happy_zombie @hipfabric I need those! If for anything, just their name alone! 2w
  •   jennyrenny79 Yes! It was Wednesday! She loved it so much, we will probably go back as a family during spring break! 2w
  •   eatcakegraphics Maybe a spritz of Rainex would work. :) 2w
  •   formandfabric Totally! 2w
  •   happy_zombie @jennyrenny79 That's so cool and crazy random! Yes, you must do a family visit there. And be sure to do the trails, too! 2w

happy_zombie I got asked if I'd like to sample the gorgeous new colors of COSMO metallic embroidery floss and I jumped at the chance. So far the single strand of spooled floss DAZZLES me and feels surprisingly soft. And oh the colors! I may have to do quick (hahaha) sample to try it out. Do my taxes or embroider something... what to do, what to do? 3w
  •   keriontheporch Purple/blue could outline a cool Death Star if you had a pattern. I'm a geek... 3w
  •   mrsroblken @gina_pina you'd probably want to put it in the bobbin and sew right side down. 3w
  •   sewflossyflossy Oooooh 3w
  •   aneelahoey Embroider your taxes 3w
  •   happy_zombie On the advise of instagram... stitching it is! Wha wha wha... sorry, US Government and the states of CA and OR! Thanks you guys!! 3w
  •   happy_zombie @wholalacrafts Awww, stop it. No don't. I  YOU! 3w
  •   happy_zombie @meghawkey1 @amysinibaldi @gina_pina To look at it looks like it'd be rough, and then touching it - it feels so soft. I can't wait to try it out tonight! I can't wait to see what you do with yours, Amy!!! Gina, I don't know about putting it in a machine. I've never put floss in mine so I don't know if it'd be good or bad. 3w
  •   bernadettesoldsoul Oh my, that looks marvelous 3w

happy_zombie The other day @anyonecanquilt posted the icord she was knitting, and immediately I knew I had to make one too.  Only problem is I don’t know how to knit.  And then I remembered those “knitters” we used to make as kids with nails and a wooden spool and thought I just might be able to pull off making a knitted icord.  I checked my @joann_stores and found a Clover “French knitter”, so insto presso magnifico with my new French knitter and some cotton yarn and I’ve got me an icord.  Now I’m a wee bit obsessed watching youtube for icords and next up is a try at crocheting one.  If you’re like me and your earbuds cord is in a constant state of fuster cluckness, OMG this cord is is game changer!  And it’s cute.  Because cute is as awesome as defuster clucking. 3w

  •   laughterinquilts Rock star! Love this!! 3w
  •   thetiredmind "Fuster Cluckness" is now my new favourite term. 3w
  •   trudyseca 3w
  •   thimbleanna Do they make those big enough to go around the boss? 'Cause there is come serious fuster clucking going on there!!! 3w
  •   nattygai this is such an awesome idea Monica. i'm going to get my daughter to defuster cluck her cord on our upcoming roadtrip. did you have to stick your cord in the knitter and knit the cord onto it? 4d
  •   happy_zombie @nattygai Thanks, Nat! I did put my cord in the knitter. I tried without, first - and then with. It'd be too hard to put the cord on afterwards. Have fun, and happy roadtrip! 4d
  •   nattygai really appreciate the advice, many thanks xx 3d

happy_zombie I don't know what I love more - the fabric, the selvedge, or that I'm 12 and love the awesome collection name (Sugar & Tail). Bought this mega yummy Japanese fabric at @bunnysdesigns. #washidress #6 4w

happy_zombie My #janome 1600p that I bought at #QuiltCon was delivered today <there's an umbilical cord joke in there somewhere>. I'm so stoked, and even my FedEx lady was excited for me. This machine was a great deal because it was a classroom machine - maybe it was even me who sewed on it! Or maybe it was you?! EDITED IN: for everyone who asked for the Janome dealer at QuiltCon (and can't hurt to ask if they're still selling the classroom 1600p's at the quilt price), it's Sew Vac City, COLLEGE STATION, TX, 77845
