Well the garden sure has been super busy and so confused. Strawberries in NZ in June??? OK it's a small one, but still. Spring bulbs flowering??
Autumn leaves still changing? Very late, but then the temps have been so warm and so NOT mid June. It was 20 degrees on Saturday!!! T-shirt weather I tell you! The high temps in Auckland are anything from 15 degrees to 20 at the moment. They should be below 10!
Never mind we are not complaining at all. No we are not. And we sure are having our share of wet weather today.
Now do you remember ages ago that I said I was too busy to blog because of a project I had been working on? Well I can now tell you what that big thing was...
Oh yes, I may well have completely lost the plot this time around, but you know what? I LOVE it!! No.1 loves it too. Yep it's just her and I at the moment (with No.4 pottering around) but we have two other younger sisters keen to join in sometime soonish. So our days are busy now with work, outings, crafting, drawing, lots of learning in a fun way.
My mother celebrated her birthday the weekend before we started on our new venture. I decorated her cake. Her sister baked the cake. Just how I like it to be, no cooking.
This was her present from us...
I started this quilt about two years ago!!! Finally finished and being loved. I do love how it turned out.
A fancy little addition to the back and another doily label.
And last but not least. I tested the linen with the cotton fabrics in the wash by making a cushion and guess what? It was a success! So now I can safely finish the quilt, sometime! In the meantime No.4 can enjoy her new cushion on her bed.
And now my dears, we are off to the swimming pool. And no I won't be going in. Perhaps next time when I've sorted out the forests growing on my legs!! How embarrassing! The little ones have started lessons too and they are doing fabulously. So sweet. But for now it's No.1's turn to have fun. See you next time xxx
