This is Rosie's fun chicken quilt that I managed to finish last week. It took ages for my brain to come up with how I was going to quilt it, but am very happy with the result. Rosie is too, which is the most important thing.
Rosie used a lovely deep teal spotted backing fabric which looked really good.
Our cabbage tree is in full flower this year and looks quite spectacular. We were given this tree as a wee seedling that was about 30cm (12 inches) tall. Amazing to see its size now and it will get taller yet.
Then we were ecstatic to discover lots and lots of baby walnuts on our tree. It looks like we are going to get a really good crop this year. It has been 10 years since we planted the tree and last year we got about 4 mature walnuts. We ate them very slowly!!!
On Thursday our son Daryll and his partner Dayn and our gorgeous grandson came to visit. Dayn's brother JR was out here on holiday from Thailand and they were showing him some of our wonderful country. Look at this boy....what big brown eyes he has.
Off to our local A & P show tomorrow (like a county fair in the US but quite small). Should be fun, the forecast is for galeforce winds. Interesting.
Take care and see you all again soon.
