I will show you a couple of things that have been doing well in the garden.
|Strawberries and cream|
My foxgloves last year have worked their magic and multiplied ......good job, because they are another favourite. Do you like my collage???? I have been playing with 'pic-monkey', its a free site where you can play around with your photos, its easy to use and if you have the time I think you could get some great results. Go here to play, I would suggest you make a copy of your photo, and take the copy to the site, then you have no fear of spoiling anything just play to your "hearts content".
I have finally finished my Birdie Stitches Quilt. This quilt was created by this talented lady
Little miss Shabby last year, and each month produced a new block. She still has the quilt blocks and tutorial on her site if you fancy making it. I did change a couple of the months, July my daughter and family came for a holiday from South Africa, so I made up my own holiday block, and August Mr D was seriously ill but made a miraculous recovery, so both months had to be celebrated.
|Completed with blocks|
Unfortunately I didn't think to take pics of each block as I finished them, and now they are quilted you can't really see them very well. May be if you click on the pic it might show up a bit better, but see......... I have been playing with pic-monkey again.
The other thing I have been playing with is this. You see I am supposed to come up with some thing to work on when our group have an 'all day' session, and this coming Monday I thought a sewing machine cover might be a good idea, but for those that already have one, the mat could be a second choice.
