Happening at Kainga.


I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. We have been blessed with beautiful weather. Last night I managed to get a start on the cross stitch which I did in the Friday Night Sew-In. I had to redo some, it is amazing that one stitch out of place can mess things around!!! It took me about half an hour last night to sort out the colours and hem the edge of the aida cloth. I wish that the cloth came edged and the colours sorted.I managed to get some more done this afternoon. On the front of the packet it says "Delightfully Quick "N" Easy" I hope this is true.
Thank you to those who hopped over to the quilting gallery blog and voted for my quilt entered called" Scrap Happy". It is not to late to vote . Voting closes 11.59pm Sunday.

This morning I went to Garden Club at 10.00am. It was great to meet up with everyone again. I came home hoping to have some peace and quite. No such luck. The farmer across the road got out his rock picking up machinery. If you click on the photo you will see it clearer. Gee it is a noisy machine. The good thing is he must be going to put in a crop this year,we won't have motorbikes and quad bikes screaming around the paddock for hours on end. Fingers crossed anyway.

Last Sunday Ian and I went to the Autumn Garden Show in the city. I took my camera but did the same trick as I did last year. I tried to take pictures but a light was showing up. When I got home to put the couple that we took on the computer I worked out why it wasn't working. In my bag the button that changes it to Movie had moved. I only had useless movies on the camera. Anyway while at the show I was able to purchase a few plants. I fell in love with this one called "Elsie Hirt".
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Bev ~ somehow I missed your new entries. Love the big quilt you showed. I would definitely have voted for you! And those sheep friends: FANTASTIC. What a fun and happy quilt.
I know what you mean about having to do so much before the fun part of cross stitching can start.
Lovely flower (O:
Have a great weekend!

Looks like you have a successful Sew-in with your cross stitch project. I hope you don't have motorbiking behind your garden-dang, that would be so annoying! Your garden is too gorgeous to have that in the background.

Love your competition quilt, Bev. Sure winner! And your sheep friends - that is such a cheerful quilt. A few more olives every year is a good sign, isn't it? Am also very impressed with your courgette. Lots of pickles in that!!
