this week has been spent home here at my place and the weather has been cooler and i have been waiting to 'make' my vegie garden !
this has been a neighbour friendly effort including both my closeby neighbours, a joint effort, and now we have rocket, lettuce, silverbeet and kale planted, so we will being having our greens
i have two back courtyards, one is more decorative than the other, so as you can see there is a concrete area and so instead of putting the frame given to me by j & f straight onto that surface, i asked the other neighbour, builder p, if he could get me a couple of pallets. i bought the black plastic down at phillip island at the hardware shop and then a trip to bunnings during the week, loaded the boot with potting mix and seedlings, closed the boot and then realised that i had left my bag in there as well and of course the car was locked ! i then remembered that i had left my mobile phone at home, that did not matter, because it would have been in my bag too ! i had not left j at home though and she had her phone, so we rang home to f and he gave us the racv number and about 20 minutes later i was back with bag strapped over the body and then we went shopping for
other bits we needed. then a friends husband came to help on thursday, lovely 'denis' drove my car back to my place while i sat at sewing with my friends and got the 6 bags of potting mix out of the boot and to the courtyard! spoilt again !
another version of the octagon quilt, this belongs to one of my friends, lavina, and it is beautiful, the top is nearly finished !
and deidre is stitching this, a whimsical drawing from one of my french colouring books will become the top of a new baby's quilt top, lots of fun and really gorgeous !
and today i took some more photos, a new pattern !
show you soon !
oops i just realised i used 'houses' in the categories, maybe a clue !
