A Little Sewing

At stitching last Tuesday night, Karen showed us her almost finished Floral Bouquet - it looks fabulous with the black background.


The binding is now sewn down and the quilt is ready for their next adventure around Australia starting in March.

Some more Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks


and the strips for another 14.


Pinned them together ready to sew into blocks while watching the Olympics and the Goodnight Irene X's are sewn together into blocks.


Most of the weekend we were in the back yard sorting out the garden, lopping trees - working really hard - well, I'm good at holding weedmat in place, making lunch etc.  Don't think the boys will let me near the chainsaw.

 


The Site Supervisor turned up to carry out an inspection.


All the mulch is from the first lot of trees and branches that we cut down just before Christmas - there's still plenty left.

So, it's all happening at my place - I'll never be able to thank my family enough.

Busy as always Lynda! The garden is looking great - fantastic to have some family help to whip it into shape (or submission!)Hopefully the site inspector was happy with the job - sometimes they can be hard to please :)

Hello Lynda,

You got the important job with the gardening. Lucky to be able to make your own mulch. Lots of lovely patchwork going on.

Happy days.

Progress all around at your place Lynda! I love your Scrappy Trip blocks, such a pretty colour palette. Keeping the workers well fed makes them far more efficient!!
