I Will Become A Quilter Again!

My goodness ... I am definitely over this spring cleaning and about to become a serious quilter again! Everything is spicky-span - up into the back garden at 6:45 this morning and now waiting for DS #2 to arrive - here he is, so will be back again early tomorrow!

Well, I'm back (next morning) - both my boys work in Boddington, a small mining town about two and a half hours drive from Perth. I had a nice pork and spinach curry ready for David, so he was happy after a long drive in the dark, having to really concentrate on driving to avoid hitting any kangaroos.

Helen, of Hugs'n'Kisses, will be happy to know my Stitchers' Angel gift is now winging it's way to Holland - it really has been a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to receiving mine from Germany.

As I was going through old photos, I came across this beautiful one of hollyhocks that I grew in Queensland quite a few years ago. How perfect! I just loved them - it is the one and only time I've grown hollyhocks. It brought back a lot of happy memories browsing through old photos - that's the plus side of spring cleaning!

Both girls (daughters) and I are off to Ikea this morning - wow, it will be great to have a little retail therapy!

Happy weekend again!

Beautiful Hollyhocks Lurline!!! Never seen ones that look like that! Ours are somewhat different...
"Avoid hitting any kangaroos" That is so foreign to me, but understandable indeed... Here on the highways we have to watch for deer mostly, but further north and east we also watch for moose and bears, and the small animals like foxes, skunks, and rabbits....
I look forward to seeing Stitcher's Angel gifts. 8-)
Have a good weekend!
