The Weekend disappeared......


... but I did all sorts of little bits and pieces done...

 Towards the end of last week we had a couple of days with this kind of view..... I have to say I just loved it....  the temperature dropped from mid 30's on Wednesday to mid 20's on thursday and to 16 on Friday.... had to go and dig out the tracksuit pants and thick socks!!!  Just wonderful....

Not heaps of rain but it will certainly help get the grass green again....


... and always lovely when there is a pretty rainbow at the end of it.  I can never get a good picture of the colours but they were there.....


Friday night was sewing with the girls at Quilters Angel... we had a big group this week and lots of chatting... and a bit of stitching.....  I carried on with Flowerville....


I finished another Dutch Treat on Saturday.... it was almost done anyway and just needed one of the straight edges finished off.....


Hubz wanted some plants to fill in where some of his hedge had died and I spied some little succulents and remembered I had some glass hanging terrarium thingiemabobs....


... a bit of mess and now they are hanging in my bathroom..... we have these rather odd towel hanger thingamiebobs which don't hold towels well but they work for my terrarium thingamiebobs....  they look good against the mirror ....

I hope they survive... I don't have a good track record with indoor plants but hopefully Hubz will keep an eye on them....


My next UFO project is some mug rugs which have been lying around for ages.... but I wanted to pimp them up a bit... so I got some bits of lace to handstitch down....


... and bits of rickrack to fiddle with.....


Righto, Gotto Go - we are back to Monday and I need to get to doing some work....

Have a lovely week......xx

Love your terrarium bowl. They are cute. Great project. I'm sure they will do well in the bathroom especially if it's humid. Love your DT block. The green looks like satin. Lovely. Have a great week. ;^)

Nothing like a good rain when it has been hot and dry. We are getting too much, but at least it will carry us through the summer. Wonderful projects and your plantings are beautiful and unique.

Lovely to have that break from the heat..and rain with it too. Love your wee thingummybobs for the bathroom. Great projects you are working on too Fiona, clever idea to use the lace and ricrac on the mugrugs..and lovely stitching and applique :-)

sounds like you had a busy weekend. Glad it's got a bit cooler for you, I'm just grateful to have a few days without rain

Your temps dropped right down....... Someone was doing lots of complaining about freezing......hope the plants survive......

Jennifer said...

Lucky you - rain! The cooler weather has been lovely, although it wasn't quite as cold here. At least nights are better for sleeping......but this weekend will be hot again.....I like your terrarium thingamiebobs, very pretty.....we have succulents on large pots on our front verandah, they are growing well because I haven't managed to kill them yet.

Michelle Ridgway said...

What a beautiful rainbow! I hope your terrarium thingamabobs do well - they look very nice.

Helen said...

Love your thingamabobs, DT so many lovely projects. The rain looks refreshing.

Sue SA said...

Cute succulents, just dont overwater them! And perhaps take outside for some sun regularly if there is not much in your bathroom.

Louise said...

I love your little Hanging Garden of Babylon! I wish we could have plants on the boat, but we have a cat who will eat anything green :( Your mugrugs look great all pimped out.

Anthea said...

Lace on a mugrug, now that IS tricked up for cuppa time!
Good luck with the plants in the bathroom... yes that is rather an odd spot in the bathroom for towels/thingiebobs; but now it looks very 'Better Homes & Gardens' in there, LOL

marina said...

love your little succulents, great way to display them.
always enjoyable having a bit of rain to break a heat wave.
Another gorgeous dutch treat block, so much wow factor in these blocks!
'Pimp my mug rug'? might be a new swap idea lol

Chrissie said...

What a brilliant idea for your bathroom. I love the way the succulents as so easy to propagate, we have ones here and if the wind knocks the pots over just pick up the piece shove, sorry plant, it in soil and away it goes xcx

Joy from Days Filled With Joy said...

How cute is your flowerville block!! And I love the succulents in the glass thingamjigs... they look cool hanging there in the bathroom.. xx

KaHolly said...

Your work is always inspirational! Glad you enjoyed some cooler weather!

Cheryll said...

Interesting post Fiona... I hope your hanging plants are thriving too...xox

Karen S said...

We all have to make the most of the rain when we get it. It does freshen up the place, too.
Lovely work with all your stitching as always. And well done with the plants. They look wonderful in the glass pots.

Ooh lovely rain - we're having freezing rain here today - not going out, don't need to slip and fall. I LOVE the plants in those terrarium thingies. Your Dutch Treat block is lovely! Can't wait to see your pimped out mug rugs!

Sheila said...
