I looked back and discovered I started Curly Q Ewe back in 2009. I definitely plan to put my pedal to the metal (or the needle to the fabric) and get this finished up soon.
A number of you commented on the yellow flower in my last post. It is a Coneflower. Each time a new flower has appeared in my wildflower garden I have referred to the website where I bought the seeds to check out what they are. I have learnt a lot over the summer!
My garden has been confused by the odd summer we have experienced. Some parts think it is autumn (the leaves on the trees are changing colours) and others think it is spring (we have a late flowering lupin, a hydrangea which has just burst into bloom and a couple of trees with flowers on them that look suspiciously like blossoms!).
I have to say that I am quite anxious about winter this year. Last year we got snow for the first time. It was fun at first, until it got really heavy and lasted for several days. While it made for some lovely photos, it didn't make for a good time. I hope we don't get the same again this year! (New Zealand houses don't cope well with our usual winter climate, let alone weather extremes).
Today I had the day off work. One of my sisters and I took my parents and my niece out for lunch, and then we went to the park. I had mentioned several weeks ago to Phoebe that one day we would go to the park together. About two weeks after that I got a text from my sister saying 'did you tell my daughter you would take her to the park, because she keeps mentioning it'. LOL. I got my act together after that and organised it. We had a really fun time!
Then we went back to my parents house and did some crafting. You're never too young to learn, right? (Phoebe will be 3 years old next month) :-)
Have a wonderful weekend!
