Hello and a Happy Monday to you.
Hope you had a great week. Mine just seem to fly by. Tuesday morning last week saw a parcel arrive from my Sister Chris. I quickly unwrapped it and was so happy to see a copy of the New Zealand Gardener Rose special. Unfortunately I was on the way out to Midland. Lucy had plans to purchase herself some new bedroom furniture and linen. So it wasn't until the evening that I was able to sit down and have a good look through the magazine.

Thanks Chris you have made me very happy.
While we were in Midland I checked out the fabric shops for the backing fabric for the Raggedy quilt.
I am happy to say that I spent Thursday evening pinning the quilt together so I could get some hand quilting done at sewing on Friday.
Not so happy with the sore inner thigh muscles from bending down pinning though. Who knew that patchwork was not good for inner thigh muscles!!!
Happy to step out the back door at night and hear frogs talking.
Happy to have made a great chocolate cake recipe which makes two cakes. I added a piece of Rose Geranium Pelargonium in the bottom of the tin. This adds a lovely taste to the cake.
Happy to have picked a Queensland Blue Pumpkin. This weighed just over 6 kilos. Lots of pumpkin soup in the coming weeks.
Happy to know that it can rain. Though it seems to love to rain elsewhere rather than here. Only measured 2mls in the gauge on Sunday and again today. Just enough rain to wash the dust of everything.
I wonder what is making you happy today?
