this is a beautiful leadlight seahorse, made for me last year by a dear friend. isn't it wonderful? only his second leadlighting project too.
leadlighting and quilting seem to have lots of elements in common - including being very matchy matchy about points and getting things to fit... the sort of things i'm not very good at and why i have drifted into the more slapdash (for me anyway) realms of art quilting where no one can hear unmatched points scream.....
for hand painted fabric than a burmese beauty? min the sinless reclining in comfort
my very 21st century 3 year old is cross with me for not handing over the compute and just threatened to 'take a bad photo of you, mum'
the kids and i worked for a couple of nights this week to turn the old veggie patch into something a bit more chook proof and attractive. a trip to bunnings and some deft posting, nailing and unrolling of wire fence and ta da!
planting hopefully tomorrow when it's not a gazillion degrees.... late tomatoes, zucchini, leeks, onions, pumpkin, marigolds, nasturtiums, basil, parsley et al are planned
the chooks have been most miffed about the denied access - they'll be even miffter when the plants go in
