Wow! Two in a week!

I just had to show the fabric haul I have in the way of Debbie Mumm and some Country Prints! the BM are going into a collection that Ive been working on for a while, one day I may find the

just right quilt pattern(if I dont work one out for myself)......

The other country ones for another collection that s for a country style table cloth..... think I have enough to start once I get the time of course,mostly 9 patch squares so should be easy to put together but the cutting out is the time consumer......
My favourites...
I have noticed that they are getting a bit rare, even on the international Ebay site!

Oh and I better show off Hubbys tomato haul too..............(Psss dont remember what they re called,everything from Siberian to Heritage types..)

On the way home from CPC today T and I could see another bushfire west of Kambalda,quite large plumes of dark grey smoke rising up,like a nice big fat thunderstorm... its dissapated now but Ill be watching it,camera will come with me in the morning in case its still visable.CPC is a Boilershop and its over in the East Kambalda Industial area so up a bit higher than West,great veiws from Red Hill!

Oh I better clarify that Bill Peach Clip from last post too! Its my Grandfather he's interveiwing in the shed that my Dad still uses today,maybe now its understandable how I felt when I found it!!! I think its about 25 to 27 years old!!!!!

Oh and Im lucky to have been awarded something Very Special from the lovely Yarnivorous who has been transplanted to the States and after the runaround has settled? in Cambell, San Jose,California, lordy I hope I got that right,Lynne?

  1. oh! Thankyou!!! Hey wasn't that thru the Wool Shack forum? ha, how we have grown!!
    I love your blog, but I'm a really bad lurker and non commenter, so I'm always dropping by, but I must stop and say hi more often

  2. What a nice award! Those tomatoes look yummy. Some fried green ones sound great!

  3. Thank you, Cathie - that's a lovely thing to do and a very nice way to start my day.

    Ever so jealous of your tomatoes - mine took forever to fruit and STILL haven't ripened!

    Sorry about the chocolate wool. ;)

  4. Thank you so much! That's absolutely lovely.

    I can't wait to see what you make with your fabric. I can NOT sew. I understand the principles of sewing, but I a crapola at it!

    Those tomatoes have blown my mind!

    BTW the tomatoes look great hubby's doing an awesome job and the fabric is gorgeous too..


  6. Gosh Cathie,
    now you went and gone and did and done it...made me cry! ( Ok- so it's not that hard- but they are happy tears!!!)
    Thank you ever so much for including me on your list for the award! I am ever so humbled.

    Please tell hubby another person is envious of his tomato haul.
    Ours got totally cooked in the sun.
    We tried to cover them with some shade cloth we had,but the piece was too small and wasn't sure how to hook it up. We will likely try again next year- putting the shade cloth up ( a new larger piece) FIRST. I just love growing tomatoes. And I love seeing the heirloom varieties- thank him for growing them- is he a seed saver as well?

    I am such a quilt/cloth nut- I love the cotton cloth prints that are used in quilts...just can't cut or sew a straight line to save my life. Which is another beautiful thing about yarn... it's all soft and fuzzy..straight edges and lines are not truly required.
    Well- you know what I mean...

    Hope your EGMTK! fibre club arrives soon! Nohting like a package of fluff to make the day better!

  7. You have just been awarded again, by me! 'cos you always make me smile ya know?
