Home day

Today has been a relaxing day at home, some time in the garden and some time sewing, plus a bit of reading snuck in there too, I am part way through a good who dunnit book.
My assistant/supervisor and I are ready to go to the garden!

My little pukeko is disappearing into the native violet

I don't know what this is but it has an amazing flower

the smaller fig tree has fruit developing already

These plants were full of little birds, helmeted honey eaters I think.

The supervisor relaxed in the shade!!

But then came to see what I was doing

Mmmmmm...still some weeds here!!

This afternoon I have started on some pockets for a bag pattern I am going to attempt when I go on retreat next week

these left over bits could be book marks, they need to be sewn around the edges.
The Minions now have a binding, that will be my job for tonight, I can make a start.
Time for a G & T I think.
Happy sewing.

Love your garden, and the supervisor's looking good.i must find one of those pukeko birds when I'm in NZ. Will you be in Gisborne for the retreat?

Your garden looks great
How do you find time to get everything done
You must be a quiet achiever

Your garden is looking lovely. I have that wild violet too, although mine didn't come from Mum, she always had it in her garden. Happy G&T hour!

That 7 pocket bag is a great one. It holds so much stuff.
