some friends came visiting on thursday and jenny brought this spring posy from her garden, so pretty and a reminder that spring is in the air, sharon also brought some daffodils
jenny also brought this gorgeous scarf to show, her dear mother has been making it using appleton's crewel wools and it is so pretty
and we were in very good company, sharon brought along some of her quilt tops to show
and this one really amused me
st. anthony and st. theresa had a little lunch with us, a cup of tea and a piece of cake, oh yes both friends brought flowers and cake !!!
my hobart cousins came for a visit for a few days too, we three girls just had a quiet time doing things at home here, lots of relaxing, but also some moving of things to make way for the delivery of this today
this is to replace another not so old bed, a big error in judgement one
and on the stitching front
a new rosie corner created for some morning stitching, the sun comes in for some good natural light
friend marlene found the old 'bothy threads' kit that she bought from me years ago and is now giving it some different treatment from the stitching suggested and it's looking good
and cousin barbie was busy cutting and making squares of batting and lining for a layer cake of french general 'pom de paris' that i had given her some time ago . . . . . and soon they looked like this
they have now been quilted across each square from corner to corner and when sewn together the quilt will be finished ! and all done by hand !
fresh green buds on the trees, and my favourite euphorbias are a plenty in my garden at the moment, i do love them !
we played around with and i recycled/gave away some of my necklaces to go and live in hobart
i also personally had a bit of a spring clean as my hairdresser was on site/living in, i may have looked better with some makeup on, but au natural i am happy with the short short hair again, my button necklace also had a bit of a repair with some super glue !
before closing i am wondering if anyone out there in the world has any of these fabrics to sell, swap or give away !
its the aqua squares with the white grid with black dots and little flowers that jean would love to have some of, it is a favourite of hers, please get in touch if you can spare some
and this quilt belongs to margaret sampson george, its her 'no not the levans hall', it is the floral in the border with the rose and forget me not in any colourway that we both would like some of ( i thought i had a close up ) , just taken a photo of one colourway that i do have a bit of and i love, but it came also with a darker blue and that lighter blue grey background. we would love some !!!
spring is here in melbourne today, it is chilly, one minute the sun is out, the next the rain is coming down at a real angle, the football finals have started and even though the heating is on 22c, i am cold ! hhhhmmmmmmmmmm, there is that new bed !!!!!!!!!!
