What a lovely day we had today my mum and mother in law both came to have lunch with us for mothers day. It was a nice day for all , I'm very lucky to have my mum, who means the world to me.
Well I have been busy this week with a quilt done for my nephew. He likes to go camping and I made him a star quilt so he can always sleep under the stars. As you can see red and blue are his favourite colours. Only one more quilt to make before next week. I'm so excited my sister and family arrive from Tasmania for their holiday.
I would like to wish all mothers out there a happy Mothers Day and I hope that the coffee is hot and the toast is not burnt. I live in hope every year, may be this is the year. I love my boys with all my heart but they are lousy cooks.

I love the cooler mornings that we are starting to have. Its nice to walk the dog and feel the cold in the air . I know its not the same for everyone but I do like the weather a lot more this time of the year in Queensland than in summer. I enjoy spending more time in the garden trying to tackle the weeds into submission ,they always seem to have the upper hand.

I found these seedlings growing in the rock paths around the back of my house last month and thought they were mock orange bushes so I carefully transplanted them into potting mix I especially bought for them. I have cared and watered these plants for a month ,only to be told yesterday that they were WEEDS.

A few weeks ago my local quilting group had a folding flower's class which I decided to do. As it is something new to learn and I am always trying to learn new things about quilting. I may not be perfect at it but I am always willing to have a go. It was a great time to be had by all with lots of laughter and crying when the flowers looked more like a seed pod . Well here is my attempt of a vase filled with Dogwood and Pomegranate's'

I think the real ones would look better. Nature has had a lot more practise than me which is a good thing.
