what have I been up to?

well still at work
but rolling roster, so seem to have more time to do some of the things I want to do, funny isn't it? I haven't had any extra time off, just different to when I'm usually taking advantage of that I have been busy doing this....
block 13 in 3 sizes
 stuff the last one up several times...Jack and I were great friends
 made some purchases from Kmart and potted them up
 my red nerines have gone crazy
 last blooms from the garden before the cold weather hits
 Aldi is trap! one of the 2 I bought plus some other things I will show in coming days/weeks

 one quarter of the next many colour combos! 
decisions decisions
 and one that we all need to remember, especially when out and about shopping
to be kind to all staff in stores
to be kind to ourselves
and just 
in general

in this crazy world of covid 19

well the only good thing about this craziness is I get to sew more as my hours at work have changed
block 12
 this is the alternate block for block 3
this one is 12 1/2", but I think it's too big once they are all on the plan together,
but I'll see once its all done, it may become a cushion
 redid block 9 into a 6 1/2" love how it turned out
alternate block 3 as a 6 1/2'
my maths was obviously a bit off, as it was too small, hence the borders
 block 9 12 1/2" and 6 1/2"
 block 3 12 1/2" and 6 1/2"

I'm also following along with a great stitchalong with some wonderful Aussie designers on FB

if you're on FB join the group, it's worldwide and the designs are lovely!
stay safe!

long first week at work

well this first week back has been to say the least different...almost like starting a new job with so many restrictions and changes to work practises...
I think this Covid19 can go and jump in the lake please!

anyway my modablocks3 are coming along nicely

 my succulent garden,
