The week at a glance..


a familiar sighting!
{alpaca/wool}

A quilt show,
with sightings of a few familiar Oma creations.
Goats in yellow coats, getting used to the whole putting on and taking off shamozle.
Emptying bobbins by making time for a much needed plying session.
Cleaning up after an ancient, confused cat, poor thing. And again, and again.. and so on it goes..
Side stepping around blanket cubbies that have been constructed with every blanket we own (and even a sheet or two!).
Lending a hand at our daughters' primary school as the oven was fired up to bake some pizzas...
Coming home inspired after veggie group on Friday and planting out my blueberries and a handful of lavenders grown from cuttings..
Fluffy chook cuddles and worrying fox sightings,...
Netball Saturday, dinner at Oma's and some oat and honey muffins for the lunchboxes,
This was my week at a glance.

How were things in your week?

  1. Nice quilts! That would have been fun Christine. And what a productive week! The muffins look great - I must get some baking done in this house. The poor kids will just be having fruit for snacks tomorrow. Maybe I should bake as soon as I get up...... (groan!)

    1. ooh, you're brave tackling the morning bake, Linda! I find that the evening is working well for us with baking - the day can still be filled with day stuff and in the evening I'm in the kitchen anyway making dinner so it just seems like the right time to bake. :)

  3. Sounds like a lovely week( aside from the fox). My beautiful old dog was looked after like your cat is right now ...you feel you owe to them after all the time they have given you don't you.
    Have been planting and planting this week....tatsoi, freckles lettuce,red cabbage.

    1. Yep, elderly friends with tails..one can't get cross with them after all the years of loyal companionship they've freely given.
      Your plantings sound lovely - you're well ahead of me in the greens departement.

    1. There were some stunners in there, Celia. One quilt took 10 years to make and was entirely hand pieced and hand quilted. It was a "Dear Jane". Astounding.
