Not much of a title, but then each day seems to come and go at the moment with not much meaning to it.
Just plodding along at home, not venturing out & wondering if this is what the rest of our lives will be like, though I've had the camera handy to capture whatever the imagination can find.
A walk very early this week near one of our new estates netted this.................something I actually detest!
|The benching of the hillside into little blocks that are flat.|
|Looking from the study window at about midday.|
|The back verandah a little later covered in itty-bitty hail (sago snow).|
|Looking along the back paving beside the steps & retaining wall.|
We also had a thunderstorm amidst all this and at 3.30pm as I type this it is 6.5℃ It is cold & the fire is lit, though the sun has just appeared briefly with lots more grey storm clouds on the horizon.
A FINISH and A PHOTO SHOOT.
|My quilt now named "Whimsy" inspired by the colours of Attic 24's dahlia rug is now quilted & bound.|
I took this photo today after waiting for a break in our weather, but it hasn't come so this is the best I could do.
|I also finally finished this butterfly embroidery, which has similar colours, though I started it a couple of years ago. Not sure how to finish the back now it's in the hoop. Any suggestions?|

Being back in Stage 3 lockdown is becoming very tedious. Even heard "rumours" about nothing happening till 2022. Really!!!!
Need to keep myself busy and as the weather hasn't been playing nicely, nothing is being done in the garden, which is annoying me and not sleeping well hasn't helped my mood or mojo. We've been trying to make sure we at least get in our walking routine, but today that isn't going to happen with intermittent light misty rain & when you need to wear a mask when not in your own home/garden, it seems to make it even more uncomfortable. A wet mask that is......
OK, we'll make a start and just to let you know the camera has been put to good use around the home.
|2 different pink hellebores.|
|A very pale greeny/lemon hellebore.|
|The blueberries are just starting to flower.|
|The tiny pink bluebells are up & sure have multiplied.|
|The circular garden out the front with many bulbs either flowering or nearly flowering.|
|A closeup of the crocus.|
|The rather untidy area beside the shed. |
DH intends to extend the shed in the very near future, which is why we need to relocate the veg beds & rethink the layout of this area.
|Designing on my computer.|
|Designing labels on the computer, which has been a big learning curve, but I did it all by myself.😊|
|And playing with another design after speaking with my friend Joy from Days filled with Joy.|
She had ideas for another QAL & I came up with this design, which I may or may not do.
|The box arrived.....|
|Opened it....................Oh boy, I wasn't expecting this!!!!|
