A bit of blogging - a bit of garden - a bit of monkeying around in the sewing room!
And then these georgous cactus flowers. I just love them!
Despite the dreadful continuous heat and hot winds, I managed to find some beauty in my front garden this evening. I am heading off on a holiday, and wont be able to keep the usual sharp eye on my little plants. I hope they will be OK. I do so love them . . .
Lots of my hollyhocks are coming up in cracks in the footpath from seeds of last year, so no doubt they will survive. I am packing some projects to take away with me, so am hoping to get some hand quilting done and just a little school work in there somewhere. The holidays are slipping away. I am looking forward to an annual Crafters Retreat Weekend Away on 19/20th of January at a quiet little B&B in the country side, not far from home. Our craft group went here last year, and just had to return.
Happy week to you all -
With my current cushion theme, Mr Flower garden got this one for his birthday as he keeps pinching mine in the lounge room at nights while we are watching TV. He was very happy with it and is being used which is lovely to see. Thanks for all the well wishes for his birthday . . .
This little dollie found her way into Sue's bag at our Tote Tute the other day. I could see by the look on her face, that she really wanted to go and live with Sue and all her other toys, (check them out here), so I bid her farewell and gave her, her wish.
Is that "white - negative" space I can see there????? Just a few things to still take to: school, the shed, etc. but 100% on what is was.
And then a Crafting Day! I've always wanted learn the art of Totes - so Ric Rac, Barking Mad and I spent the afternoon with our Sewing machines poised and step by step we made our bags. Even my 10 yr old daughter joined in the fun and followed the instructions. We had a great afternoon and I think "birthing the bags" was the most excitning part. Thanks Jodie!
