In the Garden

Since yesterday so was hectic with phone calls conerning the dilemas that seem to occur when one is trying to rent out a house that is not selling (our place in Townsville that we moved out of in late March), I didn't get a chance to post my one flower wednesday.......... but I did manage to get one done :) I also managed to unpack my crocheted hexagons that are making up a crocheted flower garden! Neat hey.






So today I've been busy in the garden earlier this morning getting lots planted to try getting a garden happening here to attract the birds & insects, as well as give some fragrance, flowers & eventually some privacy along the side fence which looks out to a road that has several houses built along it.
Meantime, the dishcloths are slowly growing, getting ready to be posted out. First off there will 3 heading out to New Zealand tomorrow, so Karen, keep watch for them. Next, will be the collection for Deanna who has just made mention she has some packed up & shipped out on their way over here, so I know they'll be arriving very soon. I need to get my skates on & get a few more made up ready for the other ladies.

Right now I've got a big pot of soup bones going ready to make up some soup to have for dinner together with some homemade sausage rolls. The fire is going as it's beginning to cool down a little here now, so very soon it'll be time to go get the firewood in for the night & early tomorrow morning. A bit more baking & then some sewing sounds like a good way to complete the day.

Hi Dawn, Basically it is just a small "hexa" for the crochet, but if you email me at sharmshere@yahoo.com I can send you the pattern for it. I can't seem to access anybody's email from the profile sections on blogger - something about a default mail thingy not set up on my laptop.
