Some one stole 1/2 my week this week!!!!
Even with sewing to midnight every night, the week flew past to quickly !
Im just uploading photo’s and hopefully I can write later in the day what Im doing here LOL
This was were I was up to last week trying to decide if to add the little Robins or not???? My big flowers are so over powering for the one bird.
Starting my DH block 2 with making the looly pop flowers first.
Large Lolly Pop flower, I cut out my back circle first then cut my top petals all out of the one piece of fabric, both have iron on fusing behind them.
My top for the large Lolly Pop flower notice Ive cut my petals out in one piece. Checking for contrast!
Making my small lolly pop flowers it was such fun using iron on fussing to make these.
Thinking about colours for my lilies now.
I like it!!!!
Even lovely on the black back ground.
Adding those stems using bias I’ve made and my first few leaves.
add a few tiny curls what fun.
Started off with a orange centre stem too but it was just to much orange for me.
Looks like I have a spider plant growing here LOL
To strong and dark dead centre I feel.
OK its growing but some thing is wrong????
Added a pale green centre stem its a little softer and lighter. Slowly adding those leaves that were a challenge till I did some latreal thinking LOL

This week I worked on my ANZ quilt top also. I missed placed the first 20 circles I cut out in Oct last year finally gave up looking to day and made 30 new ones I bet I will find the other ones now!!!!
Im about to make circles cut out of fabric with iron on fusing on the right and back side of the fabric.
a pile of circles all cut out with iron on fusing on them.
Dark side is the right side and the silver is the under side there is a lot of silver thread in this old kimono I’m using. SO its a great fabric from a quilters point of view.
Circles all ironed on and waiting to be machine appliquéd on.
Ive also been working on adding the binding to Joshua’s quilt, I have 3/4 of the binding sewn on and 1/4 of it turned over and hand stitched down.
I sashiko quilted this quilt I do enjoy doing the sashiko quilting, just wish I had learnt it years ago, may be I’d not have so many UFO tops if I had LOL
My DGD 4 and I spent an hour working in the garden this morning.
DGD standing in amongst the air roots that are metres long on the ground too before we cut them back.
NO air roots hanging down now. When you cut the air-roots they release an awful smell, see her holding her nose LOL
Still flowering to my delight, purple flowers are all new blooms.
Creppy crawlies have not eatten them so we still have them in the garden.
we set the trap for a large white tailed rat thats been on our terrace lately but caught this beautify wee local marsupial instead. Look how beautiful her fur is. They are not scared of people and are so gentle, Ive picked them up to relocate at times and they just sit docile in my hands. They hop like a miniature wee kangaroo.
She has been relocated.
Thank you for visiting I do like it when people drop in. Off to join up with Esther Aliu’s WOW or WIP’s today Cheers Glenda
