In Hobart last week I visited The Needlewoman, a wonderfully inspiring craft shop. I purchased this Lynette Anderson pattern and accessories. My aim is to make a couple of Christmas gifts throughout the year so I will be a little organised in December....
My online stitching group, Friends in Stitches has responded to the devastation caused by bushfires in the Tasmanian region around Dunalley recently. We as a group have made stitching parcels for ladies in this community. In our parcels we have included the necessities- scissors, needles, thread, fabric, a stitching kit, a pin cushion, thread catcher and a stitching bag. Here is some of my parcel.
The centre panel of Down in the Garden is finally finished!
Its been a UFO for almost 3 years!
The binding is going on to my Union Jack quilt!
And finally- Andrew and I have had a huge day in our front yard. We are both a little tired and sore!This is one side of the garden. We started out with the plan to just spend an hour or so tidying up the plants. 9 hours later we had removed some very tired and woody plants, installed a watering system, planted many new cottage plants, mulched, cleaned up and watered.
This side of the yard is my favourite, it makes me think of a fairy grotto!
