This week has been a week of harvesting the last few tomatoes and making chutney.

Big son has finally planted the daffodils we bought together last week, not many only about 200 in our small front garden.  I won’t show any photos now as there is nothing to see but wait until next spring.  He has also revamped this garden, moved plants and changed the lawn from an odd shaped rectangle to a circle, which to me seems to be getting smaller by the day – He assures me it isn’t.

Today’s roast dinner is in the oven along with a loaf of bread for sandwiches for everyone to take to work tomorrow.

  1. Love the block used in the first and last border … that would be a very versatile block to use in many ways. The quilt looks good overall too!

  2. Thank you. I really just wish I had the time and means to make some of these quilts.
