i don’t want to start this post by complaining but, oh my goodness it’s been hot!  

i haven’t put my veggies in yet so at least i can’t be sad about losing crops.  my beautiful tree fern is looking a little tragic though.  i’m told it will come back….

the same tree fern back in november was looking so lovely and lush.

on the plus side hot weather calls for a slow down.  needle and thread, slow, deliberate stitches and “sunflower” continues on.  still???? slow, i tell you, slow!!!

 

i've used bits of my rusted fabrics for the boarder

my first attempt at patchwork is this somewhat "cattywhompus" log cabin!  let it be noted that it is totally deliberate that there is not a straight line or even "log" in sight.  i have a "cattywhompus" mentor!

    What a fantastic first attempt at patchwork Samm! I love those naive log cabin blocks and the rust dyed fabrics are scrummy.
    I am enjoying watching your “Sunflower” piece evolve.

    hot? HOT? Freakin’ bloody hot. Just beautiful for the first day of school. What about Adelaide? Crap! I HATE this weather, hate it with a passion. Now, there, I’ve complained enough for both of us!

    Hi Sam, My treefern looks worse it went from green one day to brown the next, might be beyond hope, I’ve looked at it out my kitchen window ever since we moved in here over 20 years ago.
    But that’s not why I’m here, I just spotted your comment on the my land my paper site and if you would like to contribute you have a week or two. I’ll be posting all the cards to Tassie on about the 16th Feb.
