Hi everyone and welcome to my new follower. I hope your weekend has been enjoyable, perhaps with some sunshine, none of which has appeared in Melbourne the last two days.
Remember the fabrics I showed you in my last post,
they have been cut up into 110 6 &1/2 inch squares ready to sew into a quilt.
I purchased a few more pieces of fabric last week to give the colour scheme a bit more pop and I'm quite happy with the colour combinations. So all these squares are pinned together in rows and numbered so I remember the right order in which to sew them. Sorry about the rubbish photo.
Late last week I had an overwhelming urge to have a good sticky down in the local op shop. I came home with a few bits of pieces, a dress with fabric that is gorgeous and will cut up, a few pillowslips which will be turned into something else and this little china jug which cost me the grand total of 50cents.
It's just perfect for displaying some autumn hydrangeas I picked from the garden today. I suppose the hydrangeas are really too big for the jug, but do I care? Nope! It's all about what makes me happy, not about being perfect.
This afternoon I took my dog Sophie for a walk around the streets of the neighbourhood which was a lot of fun because tomorrow morning we are having a council hard rubbish collection. Anyone who has stuff to get rid of has put it on the nature strip and what stuff there is. Some of it is just rubbish, but I saw so many things I could have come home with. Wooden chairs that could have been sanded down and painted, an old tiered garden stand and this which I did bring home.
I'm not exactly sure what it is but it was sitting next to an old broken cast iron fire place grille.
I have a weakness for wrought iron and I just couldn't leave it sitting on the grass. I will use it as a display somewhere in the garden.
Well I'm off to iron hubby some work shirts for the week. I hope your week ahead is a good one.
Till next time, take care,
