The winter roses in my garden are just beautiful this year. Inspired by Annie I just had to experiment with the photo's. It has also been a nice day to potter in the garden while the children played with friends.
A passion at the moment is completing stitcheries and then making them into quilts with various patchwork blocks. I enjoy the stitching and then the patchwork side as well. These flower blocks were great to take anywhere.
The holidays are flying by. I have been busy catching up with friends and some very productive sewing time. A sewing day with the girls was most enjoyable. It has been great spending time at home with the kids. Pa made a puppet theatre for the kids, I made the red curtains with the gold trim (as requested) and my 8 year old girl added the final decorations. I recently took part in a New York Beauties class, so decided to try this pattern using black, red and gold, all different colours for me!
I have viewed a few blogs and thought what a great way to share our love for sewing and craft. I am on holidays at the moment and have been spending quite a bit of time sewing and sorting through some UFO's (unfinished objects!!!) It has been lovely and I look forward to a few more days of it to come.
