Off to Safari!

Happy Hump Day!  I bet most of you are busy in your kitchen either getting things ready for a houseful or making your "dish" to take mom's or gram's or whomever you're sharing the holiday with.  Those of you that aren't in the US, I send lots of blessing your way! 

I have a quick post this morning before I head to the kitchen to finish the dishes I can do a day ahead of time.  We're deep frying our turkey this year, something different.  I have to cook a ham too because half the house doesn't like turkey.  Who'da thought?!? Oh well, more for me.  And there are so many wonderful leftover recipes.

So here's my Pixie Dust Studio's "April" pixie dressed up for her Safari vacation.  I actually tried my hand at paper piecing for the very first time.  Critics are welcome and encouraged!  The sketch is from Midnight Madness, who is having a GREAT sale this week.  Well, there you go short, sweet and to the point. 

Question: Is anyone else having problems linking pictures?  Sometimes it's taking 3 or 4 tries before it accepts it?  Just curious if it's me or the system.
