There are not many flowers here now, and apart from some faded Cosmos, very sparse. These were taken a few years ago, mostly with my other Canon Ixus.
Down here, we have ended Daylight Saving, a misnomer, as how can it be saved, do we store it away for a rainy day ( Haven’t had rain much at all for ages), some people think we have a longer day??? Usually there are 24 hours, one dear old lady imagined her day would be longer. So tonight, at 6 p.m. it was quite dark.
Hugh continues to be so much better, less pain, no crutches, truly the miracle is lasting a lot longer, and days are a lot happier all round. We see the specialist on May 1st, brought forward by 3 weeks ( Joy of joys!!), meantime I have been told, family orders, tell Dad not to overdo it now he is able to walk by himself.
I have been doing some sewing . YES.. in 2011. … I did what was called “ Saturday Sampler” ..9 blocks, but when I looked at them late last year, decided they needed some more to make a decent sized quilt. Some new batiks have been added, and today the Bernina gave me some problems, tension not right no matter what I tried. I think I must have altered the presser foot tension when I sewed through, or tried to, some thick cord. Rang Jenny, and have the number of her wonderful “fix-it” man in Levin. So if this adjustment fails, we might need a drive south.Here are some of the blocks, the paler fabric is really a mossy green. I found the deep blue fabric at Masterton, just right for showing up the paler ones in the blocks, the lady there said “ It makes the other colours POP “. Hooray..
Quotation of the day, author unknown.
Our lives are like quilts , made with bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.
