Beautiful Day

Not much sewing happening here today but it was a beautiful day in the garden.

Below is a photo of my first ever quilt, all hand pieced and hand quilted. Back in 1994 I joined a class at a community college....thought I should make the queen size I wanted as I was only going to make one!!!!! Well, it started a lifelong addiction. I wouldn't choose these colours now, but this quilt is still on our bed every winter, and it holds some very fond memories.
There was an Open Garden in my neighbourhood today so I dropped in to get some inspiration for weeding my own!! It worked, and now I am worn out but my garden looks great. Some pics from the open garden at Balabudgee.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
