Such a nice feeling to have finished work for three weeks.

It was so denuded of greenery and in such a bad state that even the wildlife had left - no birds.
One of the jobs was to make seed balls. Andrew and his classmates made a huge slurry of grass seeds compost and mud. Then they rolled it into balls. The balls are scattered across the property It protects the seeds from just being eaten by birds. Then, when it rains, the seeds germinate with the help of their capsule of dirt and compost.
The make lots of things including nativity scenes for the spring fair.
Really i should take some time off work learn to felt. Aren't they gorgeous!

What I hate is when the blocks aren't quite accurate enough and you need to unpick and redo! These ones are right first time.

I've been looking at things to do in New York. So excited that there's a Kandinsky exhibition at the Guggenheim. I just love his work - I've been saving his paintings in my shopping cart on www.art.com for a year now - and I'll get to see them for real.
It's one of those online shopping carts where you know you're never going to buy them, but it's good to dream...

I finally made myself an improv design wall last night and put up the pieces.
I stood back and I don't think I like it! I love the chevron block and I love the fabric. But put together it just makes a mess.
The fabric is one collection of fabric - so with the same lime greens, purples and all. It's in a crazy medley of stripes, roses, spots and paisleys. Hmm worth a bit more thought.

The next quilt I make will be turquoise and orange. I'm thinking of having it mainly orange, with some turquoise propellors dotted throughout. (This is because I've found it hard to find exactly the right shade of turquoise that I want - so fussy.) Amazing, I found one of the best turquoise fabrics in Alice Springs at a shop specialising in indigenous prints.
