A finish of sorts.

Sorry to anyone trying to read my last post. I'm still getting the hang of these layouts. The preview button is not helpful and is different to what actually appears on the screen.

The above is a finish. I love real hankies. Tissues do exist in this house, but they are relegated to back of the drawer. The reason for that is I'm sick of picking tissue fluff off clothes because I missed one when doing the wash.
I did not do the embroidery. The crochet edge pattern is my variation of one from a Myart book. Read - I made a mistake and didn't want to undo a lot of work.

My finish seems a bit insignificant. I've been blog hopping. I cannot get over the productivity of some people! Their sidebars are full of wonderful items. I need to stop procrastinating and get on with being creative.

These are my choices for the Gardener's Journal quilt. They are all ironed and ready for cutting. I hope to have my first block finished this weekend. At least 40% of the people listed on the Stitch-along site have already finished block G. I'm still not 100% happy with what I've picked. I'll see what it looks like when the block is finished.

Our Thai cooking lessons are paying off. I cooked tea tonight using one of the recipes and it was delicious, even if I do say so myself. I'm not the greatest or most enthusiastic cook. For those who commented on the possibility of DH cooking -I'm spoilt, DH does most of the weekend cooking.

It's ANZAC Day on Sunday here in Australia - a day for commemoration and remembrance of all our past and present Australian and New Zealand Armed Forces. We'll be attending our local dawn service. Attendance has been steadily building over the last few years. It is good to see we 'still remember them'.

You're doing well with your posts. Love a nice hanky too but we are certainly a tissue family but I don't have much trouble with tissues in the wash. Love your fabrics and look forward to seeing a completed block. Have a nice rest of the long weekend.
