Early bird..

One most definite thing I don't like about summer is my grass allergy. It is in full swing and I didn't have any spray at home so woke up EARLY (like 3.30) with a completely stuffed and runny nose and couldn't get back to sleep. So I got up and watched a bit of TV before heading off into Farmville land. Me a Facebook junkie? Wouldn't have thought it but yes I am hooked!

New project

So this is what I'm up to at the moment quilting wise. It is slow going though. I don't like too much repetetive work at once so I do a few stars and then have to do something else for a while as not to loose interest. I am going to edge the stars with beige fabric in maybe two different tones. And then sew them together with a strip in between. Haven't decided yet if I'm going with the white I have in the stars or if I am going to do something more colorful. Tempted to sew some flying geese as a border around it all, just have to see how the finished size will be before deciding on that.

Gardening is coming along nicely. It just needs watering and some sporadic weeding now untill harvest time. Unless I find some new project to do out there! There is always the chance of that now isn't there when you have a garden just waiting to be developed...

Bruce Forever!

Jamie has managed to get an invite to Spotify and i am bopping along to Bruce Springsteen at the moment and i do LOVE that man and his music. Wished he toured this year here in Europe but alas no. We've managed to see him in concert twice and they were brilliant just wished we had been able to get in on the Seeger sessin our but they were sold out within 1 hour here in Sweden.

I'm singing in the rain...

Yes it has been raining all day long. At times it seemed like pouring rather then raining. But I'm happy, it means I didn't get wet for no reason yesterday when I went around fertilizing everything in our garden. Hopefully it means that when the sun appears again everything will really start growing like crazy.

Other news, hmmmm not much actually, been working a lot and so has Jamie, gardening when there's a chance, not much quilting done, got few more pieces done for or bedspread though so that is coming along.

Will take some new pictures of the garden as to show how the new borders are coming along.
