thankyou to everyone who sent me birthday wishes in the last post, very spoilt with your kindness and thoughts
i do so love this time of the the year, each evening the day lengthens slightly and the buds are bursting and the birds singing ! and after spending most of the autumn and winter inside healing my leg injury it has been lovely to finally be able to get out into the garden with my whipper snipper and make a difference !
it's not at all flash, but it's private and a space where i can get out and play in and if it wasn't for the pesky possums who also like it, the baskets would be far more lush etc, but you can't just keep replacing plants because of their diet
a new little cushion to the collection is this 'berries and bow' design by elizabeth bradley designs ( i just realised the picture is on its side, sorry ) but i have always loved this and very pleased with the end result ! a lovely memory of my friend sharon who did the tapestry section
an old cross stitch cushion worked in wool back in my teens, really vintage now !
my dear old friend who makes these beautiful little knitted people is not well after falling and breaking her hip ......... auntie barbie get better and stronger soon
playing with fabrics cutting lots of different shapes like this and ending up with lots of biggish scraps of fabrics that i love, so turning them into this collection
this is a very large glass vase and now it's nearly full of 1" hexagons
creating some new borders, these are all stitched down now
another bit of fabric play
this is my printers tray with some cottons and some old treasures from over the years
i have some of the printers trays to sell, $120.00 each, please send me an email if you are interested ( strictly pick up from me melbourne suburban area )
enjoy this wonderful springtime, the sunshine and the showers
