Garden Progress

After the pool and the extension things were a bit" construction site" looking but now the garden is getting back to life. I don't know how with the huge number of 40 degree plus days we have had and next week expecting more.

This has been a terrific investment for us I use it every day.

This has come from nothing to this since July . Even the Agapanthus which I transplanted from my mums garden have all thrived and flowered. Sorry about the dead palm leaves but they will be gone soon. We have even had a snake drinking out of the bird bath on one of  hot days . Its the first time I have ever seen that in my life and I have seen quite a few snakes. A big eastern brown standing up straight as a stick drinking out of it. Needless to say I left him alone until he went off into the paddock.

Finally Some Sewing

Finally I have found a day to get to my sewing room. I had to clean it up of course which took me most of the day as it seems to get used as a place to put all sorts of things over the Christmas period. Its very close to my kitchen  and doorway .... so easy just to drop things off  there... I tell myself it wont happen next year but it always does.

Today I did a little work on the block for "Foxley Village" by Natalie Bird . 
My sewing group is doing this together we all bought the Homespun" magazine patterns last year or this, I love the quilt. I am the one who had the idea but I am also the one who is way behind. I am using mostly Tilda fabrics.
