a new stitching space!

Good afternoon my friends and new visitors. Hope you can stay a while.



I planted this Clematis so long ago and every year it surprises me how beautiful she grows.


Hubby has made these pavers and now is laying them down. So easy to walk on and I`m looking forward to the back deck keeping cleaner.


This the progress  so far. He`s been sweeping a filler into the cracks so have left as is till complete.
We have started daylight saving again so clocks forward an hour.
 If we have a hot summer I think I`ll put the deck chairs round here and sit and stitch in the cool.


A little peek at my SKofW quilt.
 Busy this week with Hubby on holiday so early next week will show my finished quilt.
The free motion quilting has been a real learning curve for me. Practice with this will be for me but for a first time I`m pleased withthe out come. Hubby says down the track I can look at it and see how far I`ve improved.
Well thankyou for visiting come again soon.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
