We have a Mrs Thrush, well she must be, as she calls round, for 3 meals a day, served at the dining room doorway. Some for herself, and some taken away over the stream.She is so tame, she comes inside the door. She is standing on the middle pot of tomato plants.
in the right hand photo, this is where the indoor carpet starts!!!
We had hot, hot days last week, over 31Celsius, and this morning, a shock when it dropped from 4.5Celsius, to about 3.5 Celsius, from 5.30 a.m. onwards. Not a frost, but very cool. Then later heated up to 26C. What do I wear? Winter, almost winter gear early on, not quite the merino stuff yet, then normal summer clothes.
The One Block Wonder morphed from a few blocks to a quilt, ( Guess what, the design boards I thought were very adequate, are too narrow and too short!!) …. without borders it is 52 inches square, it is all seamed, ironed, and now there are choices for 2 borders. The inner one, my pick is the darker blue with teal/green strips, and the outer, either the variegated teal/green/purple with gold swirls, or the paler green with dark splashes. I thought to have the inner one about 4 inches, the outer maybe 5 inches, and have a flanged binding, with a tiny sliver of the darker inner showing.
This is inner border choice #2, dark blue with splashes of almost grey fern leaves.
I am hoping for suggestions, as something has to be finished by Jan 7th, EST. So down here, that gives me 3 days from now. I had some blocks left over, so a quilted piece just needs a border and that can be a throw on either my laptop or machine.
Day to day normality returns, watering the lawns, gardens, some sewing, some reading , Hugh’s birthday on Saturday, so I did some serious expensive shopping yesterday when we were in a bigger city. Photo to come after the 10th . I have solved the Open Live Writer no spell check, do the post in ordinary Windows Live Writer as usual , spell check, then copy and past into this one. The font might alter, but that is so easy to change.
