I was away for 3 days - and what a difference that 3 days of warm spring weather made to the garden!! Well what has survived through months of neglect that is.
First iris blooming
More blooms on the Stock
Wisteria getting ready to burst into flower and my Lilacs are budding up nicely!
A gift for us all from Annie's HOME PATCH and we also had the pleasure of the beautiful Annie's company over the 3 days!!
My two surprises from the lucky ticket 'Foils' - A beautiful diary and a sweet pattern!!
And now for my purchases - first up the results from my HOME PATCH VISIT
Felt and wool patterns - Christmas bauble and wool sewing accessories
pincushions - as if I need anymore of those!! Just cannot help myself!!
A sweet purse and bag pattern (I double dipped here - Annie was coming to spend the afternoon with us so we rang through a few orders for her to bring out to us!!) and some hand dyed will!!
And my collection of wool felt pieces grew dramatically - I think there are about 30 pieces in this picture that I bought on the weekend!! All set to use some of the many patterns I have had sitting here for a few years!!
And from the lovely Sonia at FOREVER ALWAYS ONLINE this beautiful selection of Riley Blake fabrics - very 'Spring'!!
And here is my surprise from the Make, Bake, Fake Swap- from my new friend 'Dale'.
An 'ADULT' colouring book, pencils and a pencil case!! Thank you so much Dale for your gift!
I am not a colouring in person more of a doodler BUT my grand daughter Karah (who is 11 - nearly adult in years but certainly adult in maturity!) thinks she is pretty special at the moment because she has a new colouring book and bonus for me there are some lovely designs I have traced out to use for applique!!! And the pencil case is MINE of course!!
Sooooo..... that is it for the second instalment of my Bathurst Blog Meet wrap up!!!
I will be back with more in a couple of days!!
