Fun in my fabric world....

Peeks & peaks...

A little bit of stitching has been happening here...
not as much as I would like, but there seems to be so many other things going on here lately.
After a lot of rain, we have finally had a rain free day to catch up on some garden jobs.
This morning we spent time digging up & dividing plants...
not exactly fun but necessary & it all looks so much better.
Lawns mowed...even felt charitable & did the neighbours front as well...she was impressed!
Packed up all the Christmas decorations...sad...
funny how one of my non christmas pictures always seems to have gone missing
when I turn the house back to non Festive mode....weird!
Here is a peek at some sewing...

blocks from my Repro 9-patch swap going together...
hey cheeky Peg do you like it??????
Doing some needleturn too...need to set some goals I think!
Hope everyone is having a pleasant New Year...
thinking of the country NSW girls...especially Chookyblue....
rivers are peaking up her way tonight...
stay safe!

The nine patch is stunning. We had a dry day as well, so the washing is now caught up.

Your Repro 9-patch looks fantastic. Gardening is good for the soul, and leaves you with a great feeling of accomplishment. Sounds like you did quite a bit of it. Can't wait to see your needleturn.
