Back to today...... well thank you for the kind comments regarding Noah's Ark. It wasn't the kind of quilt I would hang, and having no grandkids, I was at a bit of a loss. I was thinking along the lines of a blog giveaway, but on mentioning it to my sister Jules in UK..... she said.... We are doing a fund raising event for the Rainbows Children's Hospice and need raffle prizes like that. Is there somewhere near you similar? So its off to England, but I do wonder what they will say when they see two kangaroos on it lol. Its nice to know its going somewhere good, as well as getting them finished and off my hands.
What have I been doing... well making a big effort with the garden, I will show you photos, but you have to remember, in Australia it is H O T, we don't use water for the garden except what we collect in the rain tank or from the washing machine. These are my areas I am supposed to maintain, but sewing does get in the way. I am trying to make it easy to maintain and very easy on the water.
Side garden under the bedroom window
Side garden by the fence, opposite the bedroom window. btw way those middle shrubs have a nice yellow flower on them, but the smell is putrid....The Scot likes them, but I am doing my best to
kill them off look after them.
Close up of the side garden. The creatures are grazing until they get taken to better pastures ie they belong to The Chosen One.
Gardenia Shrub, rescued from the hot front garden. And it has flowered and there are three new buds on it
onto The Scots Territory
I popped in to ask him to smile for you
Two patio areas. Two because the covered one came as an afterthought.
Notice the solar heating water tank. I don't think we are paying anything to heat the water at the moment
Breakfast Terrace and Sewing Area
View from the kitchen window and opposite the back door.
The fern is doing nicely now it has been moved into the shade
Tomorrow I MUST sew, some things are calling... urgent.
oh and I have joined a swap. head held low.... but it is with my bloggingfriend Betsy. Will tell more when she has finalised the details.
