In between appointments, an emergency department visit, walking and eating wisely I have managed to finish the quilt for a relative in the UK. this is for a young girl with learning difficulties. When I sent her Grandmother a stitchery quilt for her birthday. T was there when it was opened and loved it and traced her fingers over the stitcheries. So when I was told, of course she had to have one. She doesn't know yet.
and a special label
She has an older sister, and it felt a bit mean not to send her anything, so after agonising for over a week. Today I made her a journal and I have an Australian design pen and keyring to send with it.
We have had a lot of rain last week but just before we managed to get the lawns cut. Notice the lovely neat edges by the driveway and the pathway. Now The Scot cuts the lawn but he doesn't like trimming the edges. Me .. I hate to see them untrimmed so out I went with the spade and managed so far. I will gradually work my way round the nature strip and then the backyard path. But it does look so much nicer.
The rain does wonders for the garden. And we now have officially broken The Drought. The dams are 50% full.
During a break in the storm I managed to take this shot of one of my favourite shrubs. The native birds also love this one too.
