A bit of this and a bit of that…..


Time for another update, before I get any emails asking if everything is ok. It has been a full week, with finishing some quilts, time spent in the garden planting and fertilizing, and the ever ongoing weeding. We had the angels sewing day yesterday, and I have been continuing with my sorting and decluttering and cleaning the house jobs. Still away to go, but it sure feels good to get at this.
First up is Rosie’s quilt, that she made for her daughter’s wedding gift. A tree, filled with birds of all kinds. Quilted around the tree and outer border with freehand leaf design, and very simple border designs.

And some photos from the garden this week, with a bit of autumn colour. Chrysanthemums in flower.

And my tree dahlia which has some buds on it.

Last Sunday The Sanctuary was the venue for a friend’s 70th birthday party. The following 2 photos are some of the table decorations, which were made by her sister. Very creative work, especially from a non-quilter!

Sorry you have to turn your head for this one, it was the correct orientation when I sent it to blogger, but now I don’t know how to change it from here.

All eyes on the son in law who made a fantastic speech.

Well, that’s all folks, time to hit the shower, and get started with the day. Have some sausage rolls to make, a bit of shopping, a fire to light at The Sanctuary, to warm the house for more guests this weekend. And another special party at The Sanctuary on Sunday. Expecting rain today again, but hoping for another lovely day on Sunday.
Hope you are enjoying you day.
Blessings, From Jude

Great speech ... but he had a great subject!
