Just a little blogging catch up. This post does not have much of a theme to tie it together, but I can tell you that we are all enjoying a rich, full life, with plenty of challenges and lots of love and fun.
I guess this story pretty much sums up how I feel:
We are enjoying winter tomatoes- about a half a punnet every second day. The basil hasn't died back because it has been so warm and wet, so it is nice to put the two things together.
I am loving making bread with LSA meal and fennel seeds. I like making my sourdough. The other day my DH said he liked my bread because it is dense and 'fills you up!'. It sure does.
This month I helped out on the little street action a few people had on Hiroshima Day in Perth CBD, just asking people to ban nuclear weapons and make the world a safer place
We enjoyed a lovely concert from the Australian String Quartet last week. They played Haydn, Beethoven and Bartok. DD came with me because DH was working. This meant a 'girls' night out' which we both enjoyed very much.
DD says that this quilt reminds her of a garden -sorry the picture is blurry- I find it hard to get a good picture of my quilts on my design board sometimes. I auditioned borders for my new quilt, made with a bag of scraps left over from other quilts. It is amazing how little fabric it takes to make a quilt top -but making a whole quilt takes a lot of wadding and backing.
I am now planning the backing for this one.
My friend Ray Williamson's book is keeping me busy reading. I read it on the train on the way to work.
I usually have quite a lot of books which I read at once. I am also reading GK Chesterton's "Father Brown" series, and a book by Marva Dawn on the Sabbath.
I have downloaded a couple of 'big books' for my Kindle because on Thursday we are GOING ON HOLIDAY TO TASMANIA TO VISIT THE GRANDCHILDREN.
I am a little bit excited!
