What have I been doing today
I have a bay window at the front of the house and the garden in front of that is just a mass of everlasting daisies with clusters of agopanthas here and there and they were all brown and dry and the agapanthas had long finished flowering so I trimmed them all back with the hedge trimmer. Cut off the dead agapantha flowers and pulled away all the brown dead leaves.
Everything then got a good sweep and water. I headed inside for a celebrationary cup of coffee and headed to the sewing room.
I have now finished the borders on Ziva's carousel quilt. All that's left is the quilting and then beading on the horses. They have beading on their saddle's and bridles, and of course I need to give them eyes. Here is a pic of how the borders look, and when I have finished it off I will show you a photo with the beading.
Now to head back into the sewing room to blanket stitch block 9 in the Adelaide floral sampler. After this I think I may make another one or two FWQA blocks or one more Jelly roll sampler block. So much to do, any only so many hours in the day.
