Yes the postman is such a frequent visitor that the neighbours are starting to worry. Here's me up to my ankles in good gear. Note the very clean floor from my recent spring cleaning.
So you need a closer look? First up is GTASB month 5.
Looks like a fair bit of sewing in there this month. Lurline photographed this beautifully along with a picture of the whole quilt. Why tamper with perfection? Check out her shots here. Even though her fabrics are the same I bet we end up with blocks that are quite different.
A couple of books. Kaffe's latest - I love everything that man does even if I never make anything (which of course I will) it is pure pleasure to look.
Cathy has some shots from inside the book. Check it out here.
The other book is quite old and I have wanted it for a long time. Haven't had a chance to look inside yet but I can't wait.
These fabrics are called 19th century reds. The colour is washed out - but trust me it is really red.
They are lovely - I'm collecting for MM. And these reds are Quaker quilts with a couple of other bits I had to have.
The reds in the Quaker group have a bit more zing than the 19th C but they go beautifully together.
Still haven't done much sewing - work, kids, bit of a social life, but I thought I would show you some more flowers just to show the doubting Tomas's out there that I have more than one.
Foxgloves outside my study window.
California poppies that grew from seed I sprinkled at the wrong time of the year - aren't they a gorgeous gold?
We had a lot of irises with plenty of leaves but no flowers. So I dug them all out and replanted. This one has flowered (obviously). I hope some of the others do too.
Isn't this dutch iris a pretty one? See where my love of green and purple comes from?
Oh and the long grass is courtesy of the genius who stole our lawn mower a few weeks back - honestly!
So proud of my flowers, I'm really not a gardener. So a question for those who are.....when Dutch Iris have finished blooming should I chop off the dead flowers? Any advice appreciated. Uh Oh.......doorbell..I wonder who that could be?
