It's been a busy week here at our place.
The landscape gardeners have been very busy outside. They started last Wednesday and have made very speedy work of the task we set them. Pictures of that another time.
For now, you'll have to make do with pictures of my progress.
I've made a few more hexie flowers, ready to add to Edyta's garden.
It's nice to sit with those in the evenings, though they will get put away again tomorrow, until such time as I complete my October ornament.
Speaking of finishing, I have literally just finished sewing the last of 42 foundation blocks for Seaswept.
I have to say, I'm more than a little bit in love with these blocks, such pretty, pretty blue and green fabrics.
Next up, 56 corner stones.
But not today, this afternoon I hope to get one more flower added to Edyta's garden.
Another job I want to make time for is cutting some more pretty blues for my Lucy Blue. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow.
I went to the sewing centre yesterday, to get some thread and some fabrics fell off the shelves and into my hands.
Look at what I found.
The pansy and the fossil fern on the top right are end of bolt pieces and are quite big. I'm not sure if the pansy will go in to Lucy, I'll see how it plays. the three on the top left were bought with Lucy in mind and the two pieces on the bottom of the image, will definitely not be going into Lucy. The blue spaceship to the moon looking piece is for another project, which is still very much in the planning phase and the flowery one on the right is a black background. I bought it because I like it.
That's ok isn't it? We're allowed to do that?
My studies are going well. I have three assignments completed and I'm waiting for my tutor to mark the third one. She suggested I take a day or two off before starting the next one, it's pretty big, but is a subject I'm very familiar with, so I'm hoping it will be a breeze.
It's gone all quiet in the garden, they guys must be on their lunch break, so I'll take them a coffee.
Then get my lunch before I sit down with my flowers.
