An Apology

They are back - that is the road workers and equipment - however it was a respectable hour of the day this time.    As Hubs drove into the garage this morning the Supervisor of the work approached him and profusely apologised for what happened the other night.    Apparently the hours that the work was scheduled for are what is known as "industrial area" times and should never have happened in a residential area.    Ooops someone got it badly wrong.

Hubs and I were in "slow motion" all day as a consequence but I feel sorry for those who had jobs to attend the next day and our next door neighbours have 2 small children who I am sure did not get any sleep either.

Anyway moving on I did spend sometime over the weekend going around in circles quilting the neutral space in between each coloured block.  It is quite time consuming but it is happening.

Today hubs and I headed to Swane's nursery at Dural which is about an hours drive from where we live.   Swane's has been operating since 1919 but not always at this location.


Of course one must have some morning tea before venturing into the nursery.


Some of the garden areas around the property.


And of course the roses which they are famous for.  Everywhere you looked were roses, roses and more roses. 


The postperson (being politically correct here) had been while we were out and there was a package sitting on the front step for me.   Much to my surprise was a set of mini quilts of the four seasons from June of June Jottings.


Aren't they gorgeous.  I was lucky enough to receive a few of these mini quilts from June sometime ago and these will fit in beautifully with them.  


 Back soon and in the meantime


Happy sewing all

Can I just say here, that I had promised Karen a set of the 'Seasons' mini quilts a few years ago, and it has taken me quite a while to (a) decide what pictures I would use, and (b) to actually stitch them all as well as a set for myself - thanks for being so patient Karen. Glad you liked them.
