Pear tree. My garden is berserk, so many beautiful things are out but the weeds are so ahead of me. I am spreading sugarcane mulch, hopefully it is weed free, unlike our old hay. I can't seem to download many piccies, is it because of slow internet?
Olive reclining, from being a shy little person who lived upstairs she is boldly taking over the whole house.
I have finally finished my unicorn quilt using Heather ? 's 'far far away' fabric and alot of liberty tana lawn... and other stuff. This quilt has a big booboo in it (which luckily you can't see with it blowing in the breeze) but it is all hand stitched, not a machine stitch in it. But I cannot get my computer to load photos very well, it will load a couple from my new camera and then stop. Very frustrating! I have got lots of photos to show.
I am quilting away on this, my 'far far away' quilt, hope to get it all done before Sar gets home in mid July but I probably won't.
Tomorrow we are 'going away', that is flying off the island for a few days. I always feel a bit stressed out about leaving 'this' behind, she is already getting anxious. when I get the suitcases out she will really go to pieces.
I had really hoped we would get the museum exhibition, Farming in the Furneaux, finíshed before we left but still a bit more to do.....
I have been finding this a very soporific read. I love it though, fascinating and inspiring. I would like to have a go at collaging flowers on a black background.
We have been busy in the garden this afternoon. Pete is about to start building the second stone wall along the front. We want to have a good barrier against the kikuya grass which makes a good lawn but it hell to keep out of the garden beds. Once it gets amonst the plants it is impossible to eradicate.
I have been massacaring pelagoniums and weeding my weed vegie patch.
