Blog is getting a little bit neglected!

As always seems to happen in the spring and summer the blog is beginning to get neglected as sunny days take me outside to the garden.

See!!! - We've tidied up the back corner of the garden and put a lovely big deck area in for evening sun.  it's 4.5m across the back, and 3.7m front to back, and makes the garden suddenly seem huge! - We've got to put some new fence panels up at the side as my poor neighbours fence is a little dilapidated, but that's ok, and I think I will also use some of that nice bamboo screening (or willow, or brushwood maybe) .  I feel it's just crying out for bright floor cushions and quilts though, don't you? It's a lovely place to sit in the evening already, even just in this chilly spring sun. Once i get the chiminea up there, or the firepit - I may never come in! ;)

I've also bought a little bit of new yarn, and more importantly (or rather more unusally) some FQ's to make a quilt for a friend who is having a baby,
Here it is all layed out cut into 5" squares. I've changed the layout quite a lot though, cos ...... well I wanted to! and also because it's going to be a disappearing 9 patch (or whatever else you want to call it, there seem to be a lot of names) So I changed some of those red middle squares as I didn't want all  the tiny squares to be red - I want it to be "scrappier" than that! And when I cut the 9-patch-block into 4, I'm then going to mix it all up again...... so really the above photo is absolutely nothing like what it will look like! LOL

In other news, the F1 season has started, so that's all good fun! And British Summer Time has begun today, which is playing havoc with my tummy - I have no idea when to eat! ;)

Right I'll try to blog as often as I can, but if I'm not, you'll know I'm snoozing in the garden instead!


  1. Love that decking, I have spent all weekend re vamping our front garden .... pulled al the old trees out and am now left with a blank space!! Can't wait to fill it all up! Love the garden.

  2. The deck looks so great! I can imagine snuggling up on some floor cushions with a good book in summer...

    And I love the colours of your fabric for the quilt. I think it's going to look absolutely lovely, very bright and springlike

  3. Wish I had yours. And the quilt will look great. Your getting quiet into it:)
    And thank goodness Blogging isn't like Homework and has to be done. Do it when you want to :)

  4. I'm not surprised you haven't had time to blog - what wonderful decking, and yes I can see some lovely bright cushions and maybe a throw for when it gets chilly in the evenings, good book, kniting, glass of wine....I'll be round to join you :)
