I had a couple of days leave which added to my rostered days off and an upcoming long weekend have given me a nice break. I haven't done anything majorly exciting though. Lots of running kids around getting ready for school next week, and painting the deck.
A few little things giving me pleasure this week are:
- Solstice Dream - It's quite normal isn't it, to start a new block when you don't like the stitch you have to do next, or don't have the correct coloured threads, hence three more started and none finished.
- In the garden - my tamarillo tree has flowers and baby fruit for the first time in it's life. Having never grown watermelon before, we are quite delighted to see that my son's watermelon plant is also fruiting, goodness this plant would take over the garden if I let it though. My cosmos are flowering and this beautiful bloom is from a small unknown plant I got from my sister in law's garden last summer. I have since discovered it is a Brazilian Plume Tree.
- Currently reading and being inspired by the the author and homeowner of this beautiful property in Australia.
- Also being inspired by the lovely Liberty Kantha projects I am seeing here - I keep thinking I need to start one, but I have a lot of other wips I need to finish (especially the sampler quilt). We'll see how long that good intention lasts.
Have a fabulous weekend.
