Treadle in the Garden

Arrived home from work on Friday evening to find that the gardening gurus (sister-in-law, brother, niece, nephews and their grand-babies) had visited during the afternoon.  I am flabbergasted by how much they achieve and so quickly!

By Saturday afternoon another long garden bed had been dug along the opposite fence.  I've had this old treadle sitting on the verandah for ages (a friend used it for a fish tank stand) - Tracy decided it was a very appropriate garden feature and next minute it was in the garden.

Rained all Saturday night and most of yesterday morning, so I thought I'd sneak in a bit of sewing to finish up some more Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks.  The rows have been pinned into blocks for a few weeks.

35 blocks finished, 5 ready to sew together - another 24 to cut/piece

Many of the lovely Bliss pieces that Marina sent to me are in these blocks and the layer cake leftovers from X and Plus will be in the next batch of blocks.  This will be a large quilt (96" x 96").

The garden gurus arrived late yesterday morning and, once the rain stopped, we spent the afternoon working outside again - lots more exciting things happening to the house as well as the yard.
