My new garden

Lots of apricots. I hope they ripen before the  hot weather turns cold again.

Flowers in my garden.

Mystery Quilt 2018 in the making.

Mystery Quilt

Last year I decided to do a mystery quilt again this year(2018) I picked my colours, a strange combination! I wonder how it will look at the end?

The colours!


I did not do any sewing after receiving the first block in February. We are now in April. I have three blocks to make before no four arrives next week.

The holidays came and are nearly gone.  I took out my sewing machine. Put it on the table and thought maybe the machine would do the sewing without me. I wish! I put the machine away again.

Only one day and the weekend and the school starts on Monday for the winter term. Yesterday I decided – now or never.

First block x4


Second block 4x


Third block x8


Red Poppies – in the garden and on a quilt

The poppies are in my neighbor’s garden.

Every day passing them I think of taking some photos.

They are not in the open so I could not take a clear shot.

I still think the fence and weeds makes it special.



Then Saturday evening we had a quilt evening.

The owners of the local quilt shop reported back on the Quilt Expo.

They had some surprises up their sleeves.

One is next years block of the month quilt.

It has some poppies on it and

I am interested to join in making one.
