Monday

Today I was over at the Bellarine Quilters sit and sew day and I forgot to take my camera!!! How could I do that??? There was some amazing show and tell and I can't share it sadly! It was good to catch up with the ladies there.
Some sewing has been happening here
I have been adding a border to the clamshells, I have three to go on one side and then across the bottom...I think it needs a good iron!!

the tomatoes needed picking today, I for a kilo and a half...

and despite the netting the birds have eaten most of these plums, this is my share!! The snow peas are still producing a few now and then, they are so fresh and crunchy.
I am off now to prep some tomatoes for chutney.
Happy sewing.

Great work on your clamshell borders, still can't decide how to finish mine.
Great tomato crop, ours have been a little slow. Steady but slow....
Don't even want to look at shop ones till we have no more home grown ones.

Love the clamshells Sue.
Nice of the birds to leave you a few plums.
I hope you have lots of basil to go with those lovely little tomatoes.
