I made some new cushions to match our pool area. I got this fabric from Kerry at "Cottage on the Hill ", Nundle. I just love it and so I have added some pictures of the fabric selvedge because it so cool.

We started our pool project way back in May and it feels like it has stopped all else even sewing.
It is finally finished and we are so happy with it. As many of you know my elderly Mum and Dad live next door so now I have a ramp so they don't trip up the old bricks I had in the walkway..
The basic pool sort of turned into a garden reno a well as an extension the entire length of the house but I am so pleased.
You may wonder why I took a photo of a tap or two but I have not had any water in my garden since early May either and it was a total pain. But oh, now I have a fancy one no more rolling up hoses.
The garden is actually growing now all of the agapanthus cuttings are now well rooted and growing.
May be now I will get back to my sewing. I never thought I would be saying I can't wait for summer.
