Favourite Smells

This has to be one of my all time favourite smells - Jasmine. Its heady sweet aroma sends me to heaven every time.

 Look what the possums have done to my parsley!

They even wait until the poor plants try to regrow, then come back to nibble the fresh new leaves.
Whoever thought of having to build a cage for parsley plants, really!

A Good Day

 This week's work shifts were moved to different days, hubby's away working, no commitments and a frozen meal all added up to a completely free day to spend  in the sewing room.
Photos are lousy, too late at night to be taking decent ones.
I'm half way through quilting my nephew's very late birthday present, I put the binding on a very old UFO and  I'm prepping a pattern for a knit top.
A good day!

Oh and I won a Lucky Door Prize. No pre-unpacked photo, to eager to see what was in it. I won it last week at the Nundah Cottage Craft group's Challenge Evening. Our friend, Di is a member and she asked us along to see the results of their challenge - a small lot of mixed black  and white fabric, a size restriction, and participants could add more b&w and only one colour. Di won second prize with a wall hanging. Her added colour was lime green. First prize was a framed pictorial applique piece using red as the added colour. I wish it was for sale because I would have bought it on the spot. It was a Gothic style house with a bare winter tree and the red was the sky.  My description does not do it justice.
The bad blogger that I am, didn't take a photo. I'll have to see if one is available.
Off to bed now, happy that I actually got something done today (craftwise that is, not the housework).

Take care,
