Isn't it amazing how fast the days go by? It's already Monday, and another week starts.
I didn't manage to do as much sewing as I intended to do over the weekend. Yesterday was such a beautiful, sunny day, perfect for garden work. I did quite some weeding and I'm feeling it 'good' in my body today. My 'problem' is that I can't stop working before my body cries out; 'STOP'! It's not that I get tired, it's the darn ol' knees and lower back... A blogging friend once wrote in a post she tortures herself in the garden, and I think I do the same... I love our garden, and I love weeding too, as long as it doesn't become overwhelming. :)
Speaking about gardening... When walking home from grocery shopping some days ago, we found this beauty on the street side. Well, perhaps it doesn't look very beautiful after all, without any leaves - poor thing, but to me it is an exotic plant - and I find it beautiful. I'm not able to take a close-up of the tiny, red flower - my camera is not good enough for that. It was thrown out from a garden. I love plants; I couldn't help it - I brought it home! Now it's in a pot and I hope it starts growing after the 'shock' of being thrown out! :)) I believe this plant is called 'desert rose' - anyone knows?
If you have followed/read my blog for some time, you know all the UFO's I finished from January to May? It was a UFO-contest, which you can read more about in this post.
I didn't intend to win, I just decided to finish as many as possible of the UFO's I had. I finished 14 - and I WON the contest!
And here's the prize I received last week; a needle case! Isn't it gorgeous?! I just LOVE it!!
What is inside; scissor case and needle case for sewing machine needles. GORGEOUS!!!
Karin and Nancy; THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH! I LOVE IT!!! :)
(This is my first needle case ever!)
I started writing this post this morning, thought I was going to publish it, but then I decided to wait getting some more updates.
I've been working on the four 'angel-blocks' for the Christmas tree skirt (CTS) today, and here's how it turned out;
These four blocks are almost done; I have to buy red seed beads for the halo. Next step is another four blocks; the manger. It has a lot of small pieces - as I can recall there are almost 20 pieces - it'll take some time.... :)
