We have been busy in the vege garden again this week. It is almost finished! Well everything in its' place! We went and picked up the pebbles for the paths today and just about exhausted myself shovelling this afternoon!! I also started to dig the little garden along the edge ready to plant the row of lavender to finish off the edge.
Hopefully I will get some photos soon to show the finished (ongoing) project.

I think I wish it was the 80's again!! But then again!! Oh well, life is life and hopefully I have lived and will continue to live it according to the plan my Saviour has for me. Happy Anniversary BJ!
Probably the one thing I would do differently is not get married the same week as my birthday - selfish reasons only!! But you know, when you aren't allowed to do something until your 20th birthday then the next Saturday after such event is the only day in the whole year!!!
Today when we had finished at the shop BJ and I went to a lovely cafe and enjoyed lunch together. So nice to spend just a short time together. I really can't remember the last time.
Isn't it a nice feeling to wash some little quilts and see them flapping on the line in the breeze. The little "TV" quilts that roll around in our family room were well past needing to be washed. They smell so nice all folded up and ready to be thrown on the ground again!!! Oh well!!!
A couple of finished projects to show you today as well. The first is a sewing bag/wallet. Please don't look closely at the stitching on this one, I had awful trouble with the machine. It has plastic pockets and also the outside layer is "oilcloth" fabric and my machine just didn't cope at all.
The roll through the middle is a pin cusion. I wonder if there is a trick to sewing layers of plastic? I had to put the stitching on the longest stitch and then I still had to pull the fabric through - not a very good finish I'm afraid. I am a little disappointed as I have had this project stashed away just waiting for the time to make it.
The last little sewing project is another I have been planning for a long time. Quite awhile ago I did a little swap with Outi over at White Country This lovely fabric is actually a Greengate tea towel. It was far too beautiful to use as a tea towel. It is a sweet little bag with the base being a circle of perspex, which my brother so kindly arranged for me.
Parent information night tonight for Alexandra's class, so had better get some tea organised here before I go out.
Happy Valentines Day!!!

Well, another year older today. Just been mostly the usual daily run around here. Grabbed some lunch quickly with Mum between ballet lessons and then had a quick browse in an antique shop around the corner from the ballet studio.
