WOW OR WIP’S this week with Esther.
This was such a frustrating blog to write Id think it was saved and then I’d go to upload more photos and the ones I thought were saved were not there I must have uploaded every photo 3 or 4 times my connection I realise now is almost zero. But Ive made it and still have my computer its not over the cliff LOL.
Every day I plan to work on my Golly quilt top but every evening it looks the same I get caught up in the garden there is so much that needs to be done before the next wet starts,
But it still looks the same !!! But when looking for my miss placed triangles I found 12 round cut out shapes for my balloons here so thats a plus!!!!!
Then come night time I need to sit down as I’m to tired to stand and cut and sew!!!!! Only sewing that has been done is each night I have worked on appliquéing my wee triangles for part 7 of The Secret Garden how I love making these wee blocks just love the colours.
Still have 8 to finish all triangles cut out and applique in different stages !!!!!
I made 4 about two months ago and when we did so alterations I put things away quickly and now still looking for them very very frustrating.
These were my first 4!!!!! miss placed some where!!!!!
My 4 sewing space has been very empty this week !!!!
I sit here at night time the only space I have sat in this week.
Sewing machine cover has not been off for weeks!!!!
Nothings been cut for weeks except bias strips for my part 7 of SG
I have to be honest and say I have read 3 books the last week!!!!!!
My days are just NOT long enough my Hearts Desirer languishes on my spare guests bed but will have to be removed by next month for guests LOL I will just have to stop reading!!!!!
My find this week two lovely hand towels made of heavy linen and lovingly embroidered by hand.
Such lovely soft colours pink, blue and green. Ive just washed them and they ahve come up like new now to iron them.
But my garden is slowly recovering from the long wet and we are doing heavy prunning and clearing before the next wet.
My hoya is in full flower again such a beautifyl flower yo have in any garden and it grows wild here.
close up of one of the flower heads.
My herb stand is over flowing with herbs now and its so lovely to go and pick some of them each evening for dinner.
My PNG plant keeps growing and flowering and brings me so much joy.
Beans that Hubby brought home to plant out last Friday are tripled in size and I will have to add another row of string to support them as they grow I just hope I don’t just get stalks and no beans LOL which does happen if it gets to hot here in the tropics but I keep been hopeful LOL
Some other tomatoes planted out at the same time they also have tripled in size in 5 days!!!!
These are air-ferns will keep growing long after every other fern has died, they grow in to HUGE ferns around a tree trunk 2 metres deep and 1 metre wide and are locally called birds nests when they do this.
miniture native cymbidian orchid it flowers every year for me some time one stem some times 6 !!!
My area in the garden I made last week looks like it has all ways been here even the ground iris’s have flowered for me in this area.
Stunning colours these are wild iris and are like weeds in my garden.
What a colour combination?????
