Getting into the Spring of things!

It is nice to see that everybody in blog land has been so busy with really beautiful projects. Now that the sun is finally out there will be more daylight hours for more quilting and stuff.

I have been finishing off other
things and now am ready to get back to my very neglected sewing projects and more blog posts. There are so many unfinished things I need to get onto and now I can.

The garden here is very colourful and even mo
re fragrant. Lilacs are blooming. The picture below is of a large lilac bush at the entry to our back patio where there are three large wisterias that have not opened with flowers yet.

Todays post will be short. We have friends coming over for dinner and there is supermarket shopping to do yet. I can't wait to post more quilt related things as I am about to start finishing off some very special projects. They are not far from being ready for photo.

A couple of weeks ago we had a little drama when our little dog (and her accomplice) decided to squeeze themselves under a fence and head for the hills. Toffee (the accomplice Labrador) was captured with a piece of roast chicke
n by a neighbor and returned home but Pip went MIA for about 40 hours until we eventually found her. The fear of God is now in them both and they refuse to go near any open gates or closed ones for that matter.

What has been happening with me!

It has been some time since my last visit but I am back and will be posting regularly again. hopefully I will be progressing with more fun projects that I have been working on.

For the last few weeks I have been finishing off larger work projects and smaller ones are starting to ease.

Spring weather here has also brought a new reason to get back into the swing of things. After 3 months of virtually non stop rain here, it is just wonderful to have the sun shining.

Yesterday a bunch of blue wrens visited the garden and were singing past darkness, they are still very illusive and hard to take pictures of but here is one I prepared earlier in a different place and time.

We have hung up my gardeners journal quilt in out little sitting room and it looks at home here. There are still many quilts to hang and countless many to finish.

Two days ago we went to the Royal Launceston Show, I did not take many photos there but we had a good day looking at all the animals and things. We bought 2 chocolate show bags and ate chips and chicken burgers.

Cows are beautiful, these particular cows were very friendly and loved a kiss and a pat. There was also a lot of baby animals in the nursery.

Until next time.
