A belated Happy Monday,it must be Monday somewhere. I actually was busy finishing hand quilting the quilt I have been working on. Plus it was such a lovely day I decided to do what I wanted to do. Some days are like that,blogging takes a bit of a back seat.
The past week of Happiness.
I was very happy to get 7 metres of lime green fabric for the sum of $1.00 from Good Sammy's on Tuesday. Yes a whole 7 metres of fabric, you will see it in quite a few projects. It was a bit dusty on the edges. Probably from where it was rolled up. A wash in the machine and it is back like new. I also bought some craft/patchwork magazines for a $1.00 each. The best thing I got though was heaps of embroidery threads in pink green and yellow.
It has decided to finally cool down. I think it was last Thursday our temps were from 6 degrees to 23 degrees Celsius. Just heaven after having days /which turned into months of heat. Rain, well that is another story. We had 1.75mls on the Thursday then a few days later we had 2 mls of rain. I did stand out at 11.30pm to see that it still comes from the sky.
On Sunday we had a family lunch. Ainsley and Julian have come back from holidaying in the Maldives for three weeks. Gosh the photo's of the sea were just so clear. Lovely resorts that they stayed at,one of the islands they stayed on was only about 300 metres wide and 1.5km long. They showed us a photo of a deserted island that you can hire for the day. It was so tiny, just a little shack and nothing else. I think you would be bored after ten minutes. Not even a palm tree to shade you.
I am also very happy that I have finished my "Hot Pad" for the swap. You can see a bit of it in the photo.
It is of on its journey and won't be long before it lands at the new owners letterbox. Always happy to finish a project,especially for someone else.
I am EXTREMELY HAPPY that I finished hand quilting the quilt I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. Just the border and some buttons to go on now. Photo's soon.
This week my treasure is a favourite book of mine called "Gardening by the seasons at Foxglove Spires - Velvet Pears" by Susan Southam.
Fellow blogger Dzintra kindly told us about this beautiful garden. You know she waves to me each time she goes there!!!! One day I hope to get there and see the treasures in real life. Here you can see more of Foxglove Spires.
Make sure you see what other Treasures are being revealed this week at Melody's blog.
