"Tea Party Tablecloth, Healthy Recipe Alphabet Quilt and Spring is here."
I finished the Tea Party Tablecloth.
There are 84 machine embroidery designs between the vases of flowers on the fabric.
Lots of different designs, something to talk about when having the morning cuppa.
Tuesday morning I was invited to a garden gathering, I needed to take a plate along for morning tea. Planned to make the some of the Lemon Truffles but noticed the packet of what I thought was LSA was actually Linseed Meal (flax seed) I had to go with the Linseed Meal. Luckily they tasted just as good.
I decided to make a Alphabet Quilt. The blocks come out at two a week, which is very achievable for me. I'm using scraps and the blue floral fabric. If you want to join in please visit Temecula Quilt Company.
The weather is just so beautiful here this week. The birds are busy visiting the flowers.. Love the blooms of the Crab apple Tree. Have several of these, they are tough and related to the Rose.
The white coloured Dutch Iris have been blooming as well. I must remember to give them a feed soon. This makes for a great flowering season the following year. I don't lift any of the bulbs in the garden.
