Were oh were did last week go to? I have very very little sewing done but had great plans to do so much!!!!!! So not much to share with Esther this week.
All Ive really managed to do sewing wise is work on my triangles of part 7 and then unpicking them!!!!! and iron on the bias srtips for the ballon strings to the bottom 1/2 of my Golly top.
Found Mumma Golly last week amongst some quilts!!!!!! I will make her in to a wee pillow case with straps so Lucie can carry her quilt home inside it on the plane. I again have spent time searching for the designer of these sweet Gollies and I think it may be Lynn Hyland. Ive seen her quilt top finished and shown in many places but not once has she been given credit which is very sad. I think I bought the pattern around 2017?????
DGD brought this wee dress up to be mended on my sewing machine but have decided to let her do it her self next Friday that way she will learn to mend her own clothes.
I started these blocks so long ago Ive forgotten when pulled them yesterday when looking for some thing else LOL Ive all ways loved making circles I think many of my quilts have them some were LOL
The white fabric is from a very very old linen table cloth that had some bad brown stains, but the fabric was so lovely I rescued it to make up this quilt top to be. May be I will added some more flowers to those centres or may be I won’t be fore putting it away again!!!!! LOL
Sashiko quilting not only in Japan but some thing very very similar is still been done in Mongolia.
How beautiful are this old mans hands tying a rope around his firewood he has collected made from camel hair in Mongolia. But notice the beautiful white stitches on his sleeves. very very similar to sashiko stitching in Japan
I saw these sleeves with sashiko type stitches on a Mongolian mans sleeves in a documentary I was watching!!!!
We were given 2 quilt tops made by people in a workshop locally yesterday both need to made in to quilts to be of any use.
This quilt top is very striking and deserves to be made in to a quilt and raffled to help a charity in need. But I just honestly don’t have the time. I hope I find a quilting group who will finish it and pass it on to some one in need.
This one does not appeal to my eyes but some one else may love it!!!!!!!
Wandering in my garden this morning early.
My DGS helped me plant out these Broms 2 years ago as pups now some of the giant ones are nearly as tall as me!!!!
Close up of one of the Brom’s flowering all ready
Looking down to the river from my sewing area this morning not sunny but not raining thank goodness.
My hanging baskets I repotted last week are very very happy with fresh soil full of minerals and have doubled in size.
love the colour of these flowes, such a lovely splash of colour in a very green green tropical garden!!!!
My tiny patch of lawn, which takes a lot of time a water to keep alive in the dry season!!!!
Yes it’s swimming pool season again
Plants in my valse wall area are thriving there.
This is a baby birds nest fern about 12inchs wide and high
This still a young birds-nest fern around 2 years old and about 1 1/2 meters wide and tall.
An extremely hardy plant has survived all the dry and wet seasons we have been through. stunning leaves and very few insects will eat the leaves. Great cut flower leaf.
Off to link up with Esther now on her WOW or WIP’s If it was not for Esther’s weekly link up I would not know a week had gone past LOL Thanks for visiting and I hope to have some thing new to share next week. Cheers Glenda
