Busy day

I love days like today, when the sun is shining and it isn't too hot and I get the urge to do stuff in the garden, these photos are out of order because I forgot to take a garden photo this morning!! Then I came in and did some sewing - working on the next Crazy Quilt block, this one is going to be very Bollywood!!

I learned how to use the zip foot!! Very useful for sewing beaded strips on!

I had trouble with this bendy (technical word for it!!Lol!!) stuff that Tracee kindly gave me, it bends beautifully but when you start to sew the machine straightens it up!! I won in the end, even managed to cope with the invisible thread today! 

Next I moved on to a laundry bag for Aussie hero Quilts (and laundry bags) - this  is going to be an Aussie one!

The supervisor was round and about today, then he went and rested on the couch - I think he got tired of me moving from the sewing room to the kitchen table to cut and back again..he usually follows, but got fed up with me to day I think!!

This rose bush got the chop today, two used birds nests fell out, I hope the bird mothers don't come back to use them again, they were pretty tired looking! (The nests not the mothers!!) This rose grew up on to the roof so had to be pulled back. No doubt it will grow back again, might have to tie it up or keep it trimmed. (That was the plan last time!! Lol!!)

The rose has gone and I can get to the garden to weed and mulch it, looks heaps better!

Two more laundry bags ready to have their labels sewn on, 

machine sewing finished, now for the hand sewing!

and this is secret sewing I have been doing on other days, this is for a swap so can't show too much just yet!!
Hope you had a lovely day!
Happy sewing!
