Where do the hours go??

I have been busily working on my Four Seasons summer quilt, it hard to tell from the picture but the background is a very pale green. I'm thinking lovely cool refreshing colours to take the sting out of a hot day. This is the centre block, I've since put it on point and added the borders.

Also making ATCs to swap and quilting a quilt for a friend. It is to be a 25th wedding anniversary gift for her sister & brother-in-law.

I have been trying to get up to date with all my commitments so I can think about the challenge with the online group Around the World in 20 Quilts . The first challenge is 'Trees' I have some ideas about what I'd like to do and will try to get started next week. The fabrics have all been selected and they are crying out to be used.

A Garden Visitor

We have had some cold and foggy mornings lately. I'm not complaining as a lovely days usually follows.

This king parrot and his friends have been visiting our garden, I think they are lovely to look at but our citrus trees are suffering. They've cleaned up all the chestnuts and have been feeding on the lemons & cumquats.

I have attempted to upload some pictures of the ATCs and quilt related pics but blogger isn't in the mood to co-operate, maybe tomorrow (fingers crossed).
