Jane has once again given us some beautiful items. Then taught us how to assemble a velvet with antique looking broach pin to make a sumptuous broach.

Just before I left for my quilting retreat my lovely friends came around after school with an afternoon treat. I am so blessed to know this family. Thanks heaps girls I really appreciate your baking and surprise.
The boys tried to photo bomb this
Blowing out the candles. They suggested I have a candle in each, which was 19. Pretty happy with that birthday number!!!

First finished item at retreat. Completed the star last year as a paper piecing experiment and lived it. But was stuck with what to do. Now really pleased to have made it into a quilt for an orphan at Hope Homes International.

It has taken me a week to pack and be organised. I have added projects, removed projects, tried to be realistic and failed. The car is FULL. I am over two hours late leaving...but here I go. Off to my five day retreat for sewing, gorgeous food, rest and recreation. There is no more room in my car!!!
I call this part of the car my shop. I have two drawers of a selection of fabric and when I need something I pop out there to have a look.

The first garden bed was finished on the weekend. A mighty job by Aaron and the boys. Slowly making the new house feel like our own.
Looking good. Paving for the path started on the lefthand side.
The reality of the mess!!
This is what it looked like just as we started to remove beds that for some reason were plonked in the middle of the lawn. Weird.
