Woop Woop

I only live 20km out of the city centre and in a small town (obviously unimportant according to the definition below!!!) .. but sometimes you would think I live way out Woop Woop

(Woop Woop : invented name for any small unimportant town - "he lives in Woop Woop" )

and post can take an extra few days to get to me....

like my lovely little Christmas gift from Melody - I love it.. thanks Melody... you get so many of these lovely gifts done


isn't this row of snails just awesome?


and today these goodies from Michelle....


a lovely little package with sewing needle, those little leather finger thimble ends and Valdani thread to try
(and some lollies - one is already nibbled!!!)

Now I'm all set for doing their BOM's this year.... thank you Melody and Michelle.... special


A few pictures of summertime in my garden....





trying to make my post box look pretty and inviting for Mr Postie!!!



...... over the year I made up a bunch of half square triangle blocks as leaders and enders on my sewing projects...

it's time for them all to come together now....


... now I need to sort another bunch of leaders and enders....

I think I will use up my scrap strips to do a Spiderweb like this one of Tarnyia's

Your garden is looking lovely! So many gorgeous plants flowering.
Love the HSTs too - of course. Great idea having them as a leaders and enders project. Great with white, too!
Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Oh I love those snails, so pretty! And those threads, yum. Your garden is just spectacular - I'd be out there all day long taking pictures! Such pretty quilting, I think I'd like to try a quilt like that!

Love the triangles, I too have a bag of these, so there is now another project on the to do list.
Love the garden photos, and I am sure you have the prettiest letterbox in the street, which is why so many lovely gifts are delivered.

Love your little snails I am always in awe of Melody's work, everything she does is just so pretty. Can't wait to see your HST project. Hugs

The cutest snails. Your garden looks beautiful. I watched the YouTube video from Missouri Quilts yesterday on how to do the spiderweb quilt - great idea. There is something very right about half square triangles, they always look good. Tracee xx
