Silly Girl

thinking i could maintain two blogs....
5 acres...300 approx avocado trees
soon to be 6 weekend getaway cottages
i will be recording the transformation of our property from here forward

a shame this lovely patch of nasturtiums had to go
beautiful really when planted en masse
will try to replicate this
stumps in the background
grandson so fondly named the tree cemetery

looking up towards the home from the northern aspect
many palms have gone
some of which we see now
why do people plant soooo many things so close
we have worked tirelessly
(well some of us not so)
the thing that kept me going was the fact that
this job would be done 'once'
i have lost a few of my roses
which have traveled with me for some time now
unfortunately they said NO to one more transplant
will have to start again there

old frangipani's
sick and tired
this spot destined for 'Beautiful Things'

oh so wish these little people were living just a little closer
to so obligingly help
in our endeavours

love you guys
dont forget nonna and pop
come visit anytime
ok...tissue time
x :(

Feeling like a creative challenge?

I thought i would host a fun swap...fabric, fibre related...interested?

Sign ups are open to all, however i will match international with i/national..makes it easier.

I will leave signups open for a few days to Mon 12 Oct. I will partner you up then post the list of partners on Wed. 14th Oct. when you will need to pop in and see who your partner is. :) Then you have until Wed. 28th Oct . to pop over and say hi to your partner, swap addy's etc and post out. Thats 2 weeks. Plenty of time, right? :) ...

So the fun is post fabric x 2 ...50x50 (fat quarter) or...simply 1/2 metre each fabric of choice and a reel of matching thread. Any extras you would like to include...ribbon, ric rac, buttons, buckles...etc..etc..embroidery thread maybe...

Then....once you have received your goodies you need to make something for your partner with what they have sent you and return it to them by the Fri.20th Nov. You dont need to use every single thread or scrap of fabric but you do need to use what your partner has sent you. Thats 3 weeks...enough time..yeah? :) ...and any extra little gifts you wish to share can travel back with your hand made parcel...

So....who wants to play...:)
