Weekend work...

A day of mowing, weeding, some planting and cleaning ... it has been gray skies until this afternoon.
The yard was looking like it needed some care after all the weeks of rain we have had.
I planted some anemone and snowflake bulbs...will flower in the spring.
Maybe some stitching this evening.

Our backyard

This little bird was running around our backyard today...painted button quail.

It's been years since we have seen one of these in our backyard.

Raining again this weekend...instead of the planned sewing I have been cleaning ...maybe tomorrow will be a sewing day!

Pin Cushion Swap

This is my new yoga/exercise mat...isn't it beautiful. Has a texture like pink on one side and green on the other.
My husband was getting me to resize the photos so they would be smaller...somehow this one ended up so tiny...

My pin cushion swap is all wrapped up and posted today...

winter is here!!!

I haven't been far away, just a little occupied with this and that...
The past couple of weeks have just flown by.
I seem to be gaining a thing for taking photos of fig trees...isn't the fig tree above interesting and beautiful.
I've been working on the pin cushion swap...completed now so I will just have to wrap it up and post it off this week. I will show photos later...
The mornings have been a little chilly...but the days are beautiful, mild and sunny. We think we're freesing if it's 15C. The fire is lit in the evenings and all is cosy.
My husband had good news from his surgeon...his leg is healing this time. Another 3 months before his next's all a very slow process...but eventually he should improve.
