Some how this week flew in and out so quickly I’m not sure what I did sewing wise will have to check my camera LOL
OK I remember now I left you here last week.
My first machine applqiue flowers on my Morning Glory quilt by Esther.
I made a silk female Bluebird but the silk is far to fragile and won’t last so it’s back to the drawing board, may be a combination of this silk and cotton?
Ive started to add tiny flowers on the left hand side of the centre here.
then another leaf and a trailing end flower. Plus a tiny bunch of flowers above them.
Close up of those tiny flowers.
Then I was on to my big blooms at last very exciting?
Such beautiful blooms!
My first big bloom all machine appliquéd down.
My second big bloom irondown early this morning and still waiting to be machine appliqué down! but it is 37C today so no machine sewing at present? Slowly adding the cherries love hand appliqueing these cherries on.
I have been playing around with my Queens Garden centre as my centre is to small due to using 15inch wide Kimono fabric so I trying out different ideas to enlarge it so the first border will fit. This border is not released yet but I’m just playing with roughly what it will look like? I want to solve this problem now so I can work on the next 4 parts been released over the next 4 months.
Yesterday cut out my next 5 backings for Morning Glory and ironed on the interfacing so I know I have enough fabric for all these blocks that will come out over the next 5 months !
Yesterday I scored big time for me? roughly 120 10inch blocks 40 Blocks in each pile and all small prints which I’m very j very short on. Specially the lights. I’m in quilting heaven LOL SO I have a light, medium, and dark pile what more can you want LOL
I woke up to these this morning, what a great way to start a day. Happy Valentines every one!
In the garden this morning
Its so hot to day, they are having a heat wave down south and we must be getting some of it 37C out side so I’m not going there!!!!
In the very centre of the photo peeping up through the frangipani is what we call a Koru in NZ its the young fern leaf coming up and will uncurl in to one very large beautiful tree fern branches.
Fruit from one of the giant palms I will have to pick these all up before they start to ferment??????
wild native lilly.
Hubby’s modern art for the garden?
And his sense of humour? We just put in a new toilet seat and look where the old one is?????
First time I have ever seen this cactus flower????
look closely and you will see a cicada tucked up under a leaf?
My new ants are happy in their new garden LOL
Vanilla beans ready to harvest!
I ended up with a large lump of Himalayan pink rock salt, I’ve been trying to smash it to use, I sure admire those Himalayan men who use to carry sack fulls down from the mountains to sell, they must have been as strong as Oxe’s this small rock was SO heavy.
Im off to link up with Esther now on her WOW or WIPs thanks for visiting and I hope this week I will be able to return your visit. Last week was a very hectic week and I did not get to answer any of my mail which I apologise for. Cheers Glenda
