Tuesday tidbits (and tails)

I'm still having a few issues with my sewing machine, it doesn't like sewing HST's (half square triangles) and is putting up a fight,  and eating my fabric, grrrrr which means the seams are not staying where they were pinned. Going slow on this quilt top.

I've compiled a short long list of names for my Pfaff
Fillida suggested by Mrs P
Frieda, also suggested by P, thank you P
Cynthia also suggested Dr Jekyll and Mrs Hyde, I like that, the machine is a bit shizophrenic at the moment, but then if it lives up to it's name it might not be a good outcome for me.

Now that it's spring the eucalyptus is shedding it's bark - messy. 

Hibiscus flowers from the garden yesterday.

When I've spat the dummy with sewing I've been crocheting and trying out the african flower pattern.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them, but I love the colours. It was a coincidence that they match the hibiscus. Don't they look pretty.

Last but not least, Lulu.

Fabric trimmings + black cat = a very bad case of dandruff


  1. OK, first, the Hibiscus are GORGEOUS! Would you send me a cutting so I can have them in my garden too? (lol) Loved how they matched your crocheted flowers -- the hibiscus mush have been on your mind when you started working on them.

    I didn't do my rounds yesterday and missed out on the naming your machine post, which is probably OK since I'm rubbish at naming inanimate objects and pets. I'll vote for Felicity and second choice is Francesca.

  2. What about Fidella?

    Yep those hibiscus are stunning. Much better than those washed out pink ones I have.

    Keep plugging on with those HST's!

  3. Those colours are gorgeous. I'm getting to like red more and more seeing it in your work.
