Ducks and Other things!
Our lake is really full at the moment with all the recent rains we have had and are still having. I took the puppies and Byron down to feed the ducks after I had returned from Friendship Day at Roleystone on Wednesday. The lake is looking beautiful, but it was a bit drizzly that day and battling with dogs, kid and a camera was not easy, so I will get better photos of the lake soon.
I have received two new fabric metreages - Nineteenth Century Backgrounds II by Judie Rothermal . I love the foreground fabric - sort of little apples - probably too busy for some for a background, but I like busy!
The little petal four patches - well, I've just started, but it could be the start of something big. Dear Jane fans will recognize it.
As though I don't have enough to do with my quilting - remember the gorgeous scarf I posted there a little while back - dear Lyn has inspired a group of us to crochet - well, hopefully that will be the start of something not so big - just big enough to wear around my neck. Civil War Love Letters starts towards the end of October, so hopefully it will be done by then.
Jan and Bill joined us on our travels to the US last October/November - Bill and his Seven Wives, we had a lot of laughs about that. None of us will ever forget the trip! Jan and Bill are off shortly travelling around Australia in a well-earned trip after all their working years. Julia has helped Jan set up a blog, Gallivantour have a peep at the fabulous beast on wheels. I am sure they will both be very comfortable and Jan will have plenty of room for all her fabrics and yarns.
Enough talking for today - have a great weekend everyone!
