SEWN Giveaway Announcement!

Monday morning our time - June 22 and this is what I was doing, above - I should have been notifying my SEWN Giveaway winner - here's a nice surprise for a lady who so generously gives of her time to all things quilty and bloggy - yes, Maree it is you, congratulations! Maree of On My Verandah was person 22 to leave a Comment and that was how a winner was chosen! Lots and lots of Comments came from my very faithful Followers and I'm sorry I couldn't give a little buzz to lots more!

Isn't this a grim picture? My beautiful? front garden - no roses for a few months, I'm afraid! Dear Danielle and I each worked for over 3 hours solid, a sore back and legs today, and we are supposed to be doing the back garden this morning. It is very wet and miserable out there so I hope Danielle decides to give it a pass. The quote to have the gardens done was $160 for 4 hours - whew, some skilled people who work in mining and construction in this state don't earn any more than that and do we ever get receipts when we pay this type of worker? - all food for thought isn't it? Off your soapbox, Girl!

My miserable little bit of stitching! Still embroidering in the evening and Sunday night decided to do a Pie - the start of my Pies and Tarts Quilt. With a bit of luck I'll get to the machine today!

Happy week everyone!

You could have come and done my garden!!! your will look great in the spring. I can't see the plants for the weeds in mine at the moment. I actually resorted to spraying a bit last week. Will see how that goes.

Congratulations to Maree!

If I didn't know better Lurline, when I first saw that photo I would have thought that you lived in the same development where we used to live in Florida...palm trees and all. No roses in Florida though...it's too hot!

Fiesta said...

so are you redoing the garden yourself? It is always good to start over with a clean slate though I must admit , it is grueling work.

Pat said...

I am so glad that Maree won. She is very deserving. My roses are in full bloom right now and are so beautiful. I am sure yours will be back soon.

Congratulations to Maree!

We have to do that to our front garden this coming weekend. Sadly, I think I am going to lose a couple of favourites this year, but when the weather warms up and I have a bed of roses, it will all be worth it. :)
