Well what’s been happening here in my little corner of the world? I can’t believe it’s almost Autumn, what an amazing Summer we have had here in New Zealand. Its been a really hot season which of course is great for this time of year. I must admit I am a bit of a cool weather girl and don’t cope well with the heat, so the air conditioning has been going fully when ever we’re inside.
This is it now- filled with marigolds sitting in our box window in the kitchen. I wasn’t quite sure what to plant in it, but the marigolds are starting to flower so it will look lovely and cheerful.
I have another spot acquisition to show you also, well when half price how could I leave them in the store? I love them.
As you know I have been struggling for awhile looking for my mojo. Well I think its coming back but boy it’s happening slowly. Last weekend I managed to get another baby quilt that I have been doing all finished with the stitching and I have sandwiched it up ready to quilt then bind so that feels good.
It’s an exact replica of another baby one I did except I stitched the verse around this one.
Then I also spent some time cutting strips. Here’s the pile starting to grow.
And here is what I have finally started to do with them.
This is a fishy panel which Bill being the fisherman that he is, decided he really liked when we were in a quilt shop one day, It has two more long narrow panels which will be in it also.
Below is a little find that we came across one Saturday whilst out in the car. It was sitting in a car park with a sign say “Free, help yourself” so I said to Bill, “I want it!!” It will be amazing in my sewing room (of course when the house gets fixed!) So into the car it came and in the garage it is waiting for its sand and paint to match my yummy desk. The lid lifts up so I will be able to hide goodies in there also.
Can’t you see it all stacked with fabrics?
And here is my latest reading material. Thoroughly enjoying them so far.
And to finish off my catch up. Young George has turned the big “ONE” year old dog. We gave him his first canon bone but he had absolutely no idea what to do with it.
I can now say quite clearly he has learnt what to do with them very quickly and loves his bones.
Hope you’re all well and smiling, happy stitching, hugs Deb.
