Spring

Spring has sprung! There have been lovely warm days when we all migrate outside to the garden, and rainy days as well. I am thankful for these days as I don’t have to water any plants and the tanks are filling up for a long hot summer.

I enjoyed 3 days of bliss last weekend, when I travelled down to Narrawong for some R&R at a quilt camp. I met up with Mum in Warrnambool, where we did some whale watching and op shopping before driving to Narrawong. There were 7 adult whales out basking in the sun, rolling, and showing their flippers. There were at least 3 with their babies. Amazing.

I put this quilt top together at camp. It is called Bento Box, and uses Japanese fabrics. I bought it as a pack, and cut out the fabric pieces when Ari was 3 weeks old. The top is now together, and I am hoping to get it quilted before next years camp. Maybe.

Ella has written a list of what she would like to do these holidays. Some of the items on her To-Do-List include:

– pick flowers

– write heaps of stories

– eat colourful lollies.

Oh, to be 7 years of age and on school holidays.
