Happy Friday everyone. Lots to tell you today about what is happening here at Kainga. We will start of with "Little Gits Campaign"
JOY to us here at Kainga. A win in the lottery??? No something more exciting than that. It has rained!!!!!!!!!!
The garden loves the rain. The water tanks are not empty,nothing liking hearing rain going into the tanks. Everything looks so clean. The vegies are growing at a great rate and some roses have decided to bloom. The chooks are having there first real scratch into damp ground. There is not a piece of dirt in there yard that they haven't scratched. The farmer across the road dry seeded his paddock last Friday,there was dust going everywhere. I know he has a big smile on his face this week. Fingers crossed we get lots more this Winter.
What is bringing you Joy today? Check out Becky's blog to see which other bloggers are finding some Joy.
I am doing this block of the month that Shell has on her blog. 12 stitchery hearts. Quick and simple stitchery designs. Instead of turning mine into blocks and making a wall hanging it will probably be the centre of a tablecloth. Now please don't ask me why I made up 16 blocks instead of the 12. A "Seniors Moment" is the only reason I can think of. It wasn't until I had finished all the chain stitch and given it a wash and it was drying that I realised I had done to many. Oh well, I will add something into these blocks when I have finished the others. I plan to do some embroidery between the blocks. This will have to wait until it is all completed because it will just get squashed when I put it into the hoop to embroider each block.
I used some Cosmo threads which Maree send me earlier on in the year in The Colour Swap. These threads are so beautiful to stitch with. The thread never ever knots up. These little blocks would look so lovely stitched onto pretty fabric and made up into lavender bags.
Earlier on in the week I received some mail from Lisa. I won these cute buttons and patterns in a recent giveaway. Thank you so much Lisa.
Today I decided to link up with Bronwyn for Floral Friday. The rose above is called "Radio Times" It is a David Austin rose from 1994,1998 Aust. It is a double,full rosette shaped blooms of rose-pink with a wonderful rich old fragrance. It has strong arching growth and it has continuous blooms. Its height reaches 1.7m by a width of 1.5m.
This is "Sophy's Rose" another David Austin. It has dark cerise pink rosette shaped blooms. It is free flowering with a light tea fragrance. The bush grows upright and is of a medium height of 1.5m. It blooms continuously.
Thank you Bronwyn for hosting Floral Friday.
Now tonight is Friday Night Sew In and I will be working on the "Catnip" quilt. Do you take over the table with all your sewing stuff?
Now it has started raining so it is going to be a great day. Staying inside stitching will be on my list of things to do today.
Have a wonderful weekend.
