There are still many tall trees left, growing for another year, till they too get felled for firewood.
The pile of firewood is heartening, we had wonderful help from Norman and Ann this week, and it is all cut, split and heaved onto that huge pile. I hope the sheds will be full when it is stored away after drying over the summer. Normal size is in the large heap, smaller pieces for the hot water chip heater surround a pine tree.
Now, the log cabin blocks that I am sewing, along with Allie,
at allie- oopssweethappylife, well, I have managed to fit in one block this week. I started with a 3.5 inch centre square, and used 2.5 inch logs. Well, it grew and grew, and ended up a mighty 17.5 inch block!! Not what I wanted, I had planned for 12.5 inch, then to be sewn to finish at 12 inches. This will be an outcast in the final. I had hoped to do each block in shades of the same colour, but can see that 2 logs do not have enough contrast.Never mind, it will be the start of a huge bag!!!
Well, it is Saturday, tomorrow our All Blacks will play against France in the Rugby World Cup. Go, those boys in Black. We will cheer you on from home.
