Working on a new Tilda project

You would think that after a two dozen Tilda hats this past Christmas, I wouldn't be so fond of working through the book. And, yet, I am. I am becoming quite fond of these projects. I have even pre-ordered the new book, due out at the end of February.
Sadly, I can't find any Canadian source for the fabrics, but I am finding reasonable facsimiles in my local quilting store's remnant bin.
What is it about the bits and pieces no one else wanted to use? Why do I love them so? I just received a bag of old wooden sewing spools, some with lovely threads attached. Again, what bliss! Why did they ever go to those ugly plastic spools?
Well, I am off to press and cut out a Tilda jewellery mannequin. I will post a photo when I am finished.
In the meantime, here is some eye candy from Ireland. I found a lovely blog of someone who is equally fond of Tilda projects:

I love the photos.
