Stormy Night

I did get a bit of sewing done on my Friday night with friends. We had a windy stormy night but in between waiting for the power to come back  on I did some quilting, then some binding and indulged in some rhubarb sponge, while watching the Hawks win. Couldn't get much better than that!

I can't show too much as this is off to NZ on Monday for Wendy but I did try using masking tape to mark some straight quilting lines, it worked well and didn't leave any residue, however I did use a good brand of painters masking tape and I removed it fairly quickly. This probably wouldn't work for my bigger projects because I tend to procrastinate once I get to the quilting stage and it might not come off so easily after a year or two!
Today was bright and sunny, such a change from last night, so I got outside in the garden to start to reconfigure my veggie garden before spring. I moved the rhubarb and a grapevine so I can realign the fence and put an extra gate in, this will make the access so much easier and I'll be able to get the wheel barrow in there too. Hopefully there will be nice weather tomorrow and I can restrain the fence and hang the gate. I also had a wander around and took a few photos of some of the bulbs.
Hope your Friday night was as good as mine.


  1. The Hawks are having a good year..lovely spring flowers and fabric in your project..

  2. You sound like me in the quilting stages of procrastination!! I have a few just 'sitting' there, all pinned and ready to go, waiting for me to start!!!! I'm sure Wendy will love it. Love your garden activity too....and so glad the weather fined up for it!
    xox sugary hugs :o)

  3. Oh your dessert looks yummy and the sneak peek looks wonderful! Love the photos of your garden too, looking pretty, isn't spring the best time for gardening!!

  4. Hi Michelle,
    Lovely pics of the flowers and the yummy food.
    The good thing about stormy nights/days are you
    can stay inside and sew or long as the
    power doesn't go out.
    Cheers, Anita.
