I know I'm getting old but where did June go?
What have I been doing? well I have read a few books.
These two were great, The Mother is an Australian author. I also read The Weekend by Charlotte Wood, I wasn't impressed by it I finished it but only so I could find out what happened. I thought it was typical of how friends and mainly women can turn on each other.
We have sold out of our tomato sauces and almost ran out of the Pickled Cucumbers I didn't think that could happen we had so many.
The pattern for the Mirage quilt was a bit daunting at first but once we got started with the cutting and labelling pieces it got easier. I can't wait to finish it and I plan to do another in greys.

Oh my it's cold, I think it's going to rain and the temperature has dropped. We pruned most of the roses in the back yard on the weekend they look a little bare.

So today is the last day of May and as everyone will say the year is flying by. Ive gotten over Covid only to get the flu, We've been to Wollongong to see family and friends and had my delayed 60th birthday party. We have sold a lot of pickles and sauces. I have done a lot of sewing, well for me anyway. I met up with the famous blogger "ChookyBlue"! through her I found a lovely new quilt shop one hour away.
The garden is going great lots of snow peas coming ready to be frozen for the year, the roses are starting to get new growth on them so it's almost time to prune them.

Hi there! Carla from createinthesticks is hosting the Foodie Blog Hop this month, I was thinking of making some Bowl Cosies or Placemats, I bought some material before Christmas to use for our placemats, and then my sewing group inherited a deceased estate fabric stash and suggested that we make some things for the people affected by the recent floods in Northern New South Wales, not far from me. So the fabric was sorted into plastic boxes with rough sizes together. Now the deal was to use the fabric to make some things but not buy anything extra and the quilt shop would quilt the quilts that were made. I grabbed a pile of black and white fabric I have always wanted to make a black and white quilt, a bundle of greens and a few other bits and pieces and I decided to make a set of placemats.
I was very happy with the end result a set of six new placemats for someone that lost everything. Now I will start on the two quilts that I have cut.
Thanks for dropping by be sure to visit the other blogs on the list for today

Carol from Just let me quilt is hosting the Time in a Bottle blog hop, which challenges the participants to create something with an hourglass in it. Well I was stumped but then realised I had cut some half square triangles to do whatever with, it was to play with my sizzix and the few dies that I have, I had cut red and whiteish. So it was easy to make a few hourglass blocks but tehn what to do, the blocks are large, 4 1/2 " finished. So I went to the stash and got some cute sewing fabric and made a clear front pouch.
