By now I'm sure you've heard that WE WON the Rugby World Cup 2011! Didn't the All Blacks do so well, but there's nothing like keeping us in agony until the final whistle blew. It was such a close game and I did feel for the French, to lose by one point is cruel! However, rugby fans all over New Zealand have been rejoicing to finally have won the Webb Ellis trophy again, it feels great!!!
The main stitching around here has been of the secret variety, my gift for my SSCS exchange partner is well underway, and I have a few ideas kicking around in my head for the Christmas ornament part of the exchange too. This morning I had a play with one of the Ruby charm packs I've been hoarding, and decided to try pinwheels, something I've never had much success with, all those points usually drive me crazy. So far they are coming together well, I'm going to work on a couple of baby quilts for some dear friends who've just had twin girls recently. I found this tutorial over at Moda Bake Shop, and thought I might try one in 'Ruby' and one in 'Bliss' fabrics. They will then be similar tones, but with enough of a difference for each of the babies. I'll also be attempting prairie points for the first time ever in these quilts ....................... which could go one of two ways!
I planted out some vegetables over the weekend, the girls and I had sown lots of seeds earlier in spring, and they are all planted outside now, we are starting to enjoy some yummy fresh salads, it's so nice to have grown some of it yourself. The girls each have their own patch in the vege garden, some of their sowing is a bit hit and miss, but they are enjoying it and learning lots by trial and error. They did learn that a late visit from Jack Frost can sneak up on you when you least expect it, the girls have some rather blackened potatoes to prove it! They should have been slack like me and only planted them a couple of days ago. LOL
I hope you're having a great week ...................till next time ......................... Nicky
