Now, I'm not complaining....it was wonderful to spend time with them and catch up on all that's been happening, but I was itching to get stuck into the Baseco bag that the lovely Dawn has designed to help those less fortunate in Manila and I had planned to get it finished by today..........no chance!!! I did get the stitchery part done though, and figure out what fabric I was going to use...it's from the Old Primrose Mill range by Moda. I bought a Moda Scrap Bag ages ago and was just waiting for the right project....I think this is just perfect!
I did HAVE to finish something for my friend, Erin’s birthday tomorrow so I do have my first OPAM finish for March….Yippee!!! I do hope she likes it…her family breeds birds so I thought a bird nesting on her fence would be appropriate!!??
Do you think she’ll like it??
I thought I’d get started on Vicki’s Flirty Flowers (I love that name!!) block for March whilst our visitors went to a family barbeque this afternoon and manages to sneak this in….
it’s not nearly finished yet as it has to be stitched down and embellished but at least it’s started! Don’t forget to go and visit Vicki here and wish her a happy birthday. Her blog has turned two and there’s a giveaway to be had….it closes on March 11 so....you know what to do!!
As you know we’ve had quite a bit of rain but it has been clear for the past few days, which has brought out the insects, which in turn has brought out these critters…………..
I’ve just discovered macro on my camera and thought I’d get a shot of these fellows on my window…aren’t they cute? However they are very messy so I don’t love them quite as much as one little chap on my grade one playground duty! Each Friday the children run up to me to tell me he has ANOTHER green frog and is chasing the girls with it!!!!.....aaaaaaah, young love!!!
When we had a break in the rain last week, I thought I’d go out and snap a couple of photos and try the macro and super macro modes out in my garden. Now I’m not the greatest photographer but am I loving all these nifty little gadgets on my camera??!!!!!
I even snapped this little guy on my potted lilies……..
And this little critter……well he just makes me smile!!!!!
Sugary hugs to all
XX Wendy :O)
