Book Review

There are heaps and heaps and HEAPS of quilting and patchwork books available out there and I try to be a bit discerning over which ones I buy. I've been on a self-imposed ban lately....I have enough fabric stashed away to make another 10 quilts and plenty of books & mags, and there are also a plethora of helpful websites for inspiration. But I've worked some overtime recently and decided to reward myself with some quilting supplies, and today this book turned up. Unfortunately it sold out really quickly at Book Depository (my preferred online book store) so I ended up buying it through Amazon instead.

Well, can I just say, it is AMAZING. I think I want to make every single pattern.

Off to read some more.

Vegie Patch

Mr G planted the vegie patch last weekend.

Hopefully we haven't left it too late.
Here we have potatoes, strawberries, corn, tomatoes and lettuce.

And here we have lettuce and cucumbers....more tomatoes maybe....might be more but I can't remember them all now.

Mr G is the one with the green thumb, not I.

Finally downloaded some photos from the camera

and now that I'm home from (a) taking Miss R to her drama class, (b) filling up with petrol as I had only 45kms left in the tank (assuming the display is accurate) and (c) racing off to the Scout AGM, I'll show you the finished blue log cabin quilt I started many, many months ago. I plan to give it away for Xmas, so it was pinned but not quilted until quite recently. Turned out well, if I do say so myself.  :-)

Busy, busy, busy

You know, for a brief moment, I thought I'd try that whole "blog every day for a month thing". And then I came to my senses.
