May and June Round Up

Some sunshine and gardening has kept me away from the sewing machine again these past two months.

Holidays - A long weekend to the Queensland Gold Coast to stay at Sea Word Resort with day trips into Sea World, WB Movie World and Wet n Wild fun parks.

Quilt - Polaroid 9 Patch. Blocks made by Quilt Club Australia Bee #1 members plus a couple of generous other bees - Waverlee and Christie.

Blocks - Dr Seuss, midcentury modern by Wombat Stew and Bee blocks.

Chooks - Two new layers, winter coats, curiosity, warm porridge, egg stashes, excavating in the gulley and pumpkin patch.

Harvest - avocados, davidson plums, mandarins, pecans, limes and oranges.
Planting - peach, pommegranate, orange, mandarin, daffodils, fresias, sweet peas, grevillias, pumpkins and sweet potato.

Weed Control - even in the cooler months there are many areas to tackle.

Books -  I have reached my goal of reading 13 books in 2013. You can read my reviews on Goodreads
