Finally done the first one!

After all the trouble with the sewing machine and a lack of time for the spring frenzy in the garden I have finally managed to finish the first bargello heart quilt! And here it is all quilted, just got to put the binding on which I have all the material at home so that will go quickly.

 Very nice swirly pattern. A very fun one to do as well.

So now on to the next one!

Garden so far

Here at last are some pictures how the garden looks like this year. It is a lovely day so I am off out when I've posted theses

My flower arrangement at the door this year. I went very pink!
The new borders we did last year are bulking out very nicely
The new border by the street, putting peat blocks in place as to keep the soil from falling on to the lawn we are going to sow
We extended the veggie patch this year a bit and rounded it off, makes it easier for Jamie to cut the grass
A view from our deck
I just love this white peony! And the daisys I managed to sow from seed last year are really thriving. They got too tall though!

Rain rain rain

Sigh, when it rains it pours it seems. But maybe there will be a break in the weather today. It is looking promising outside now when the really dark clouds has rolled past and the sun is trying to get out. But I am not really complaining about all the rain we've had. It has been really good for the garden and all veg is now looking really healthy not to mention my spuds! They now look fully grown in height!

I am off to take my mum to a garden center, well me as well..... Jamie is working today so got to amuse myself somehow don't I? Well we also need a few more peat blocks for the new border we are doing at the front.
