Have been out and about in the garden pulling weeds, adding soils. Hubby has been mowing and straightening/cleaning the edges around paths. Once again the veggie patch has not disappointed us with its bounty of vegetables.
Chickens looking on for any signs of a good feed. Large dog "Spike" enjoying a good game of ball after being cooped up over the past months because of the rain.
Good to go for a walk with out getting drenched.

Also have continued on with the Luggage collection from Home Spun Magazine "A Trip To Remember" POM. One slipper pouch and two lingerie pouches Adding my own personal touches as l go....a pair of knitted slippers from my Mother, as l have tiled floors which do become very cold at times. Love My Mum she is good to me....
On that thought, will have to make My Mum something extra special for Mothers day. Any ideas out there ladies.

Purchased this fabric over a year ago to make up a luggage collection set which happen to co-inside with the Home Spun magazine putting out their Project of the month (POM) Waited for the Magazine to put out all their projects and then began to choose the ones l would be more likely to make.
Was taken with a few of their ideas, so l adapted the slipper pouch making it larger. I really like my Slipper pouch, l also added lace to girly things up a bit. Adding some pretty smelly stuff into the bottom as well. Just to make things smell nice.....have to check on what is allowed.

Another very successful March day out in not so sunny Toowoomba / Highfields.
Every time l attend one of these great days out held by the Quilters Angel in Highfields, l learn much more than l some times need to know. lol.
But soak up all the information l need to go away feeling satisfied and confident l can finish this project eventually. lol. Not only do you get a delicious lunch which never fails to please, music to relax the inner self.... you get to enjoy the company of a fantastic group of like mined women who are also out for a laugh and good time. Always willing to share there knowledge and expertise. The new venue is warm dry and has good lighting for most of the day. There is always plenty to buy if you are so inclined....which l am...fabric, patterns by the designers of the day plus much more.
Gives me fresh incentive to search out my UFO's.
