After 3 years of living in our new house, I have finally met a kindred spirit who loves to garden. I have a gardening neighbour. This rose above is from her lovely garden.
Mr Flowergarden bought himself a new toy. I tried to photograph it including some flowers. Despite it's dusty decrepid exterior, it is something that will keep him busy and happy while I potter in the garden and create in my sewing room
I might just point out that he already has one in his garage that he tootles around town in on the weekends.
Back to school today and on the web of school life for the next 10 weeks. I'll try and keep it all in perspective.
The gorgeous Calidore from Swan Hill, sent me this lovely scarf, and very special post card. Wasn't I lucky!! I will be wearing that to school Catherine, THANK YOU!

Yesterday I had an afternoon out sewing with a friend who taught me how to do these
