I scraped all the dirt off the pavers and Dad brushed them clean and stacked them. Now we are waiting for the landscaper to re lay them....fingers crossed that he comes. I got the message loud and clear that he is busy and doesnt want my little paving job. But pulling up the pavers was hard enough on my back, so I am leaving the laying part to the expert....if I can convince him to come!
While I am waiting for the landscaper I cannot do anymore gardening, so I started making a baby quilt. I had this picture in my head that a Lone Star would be a nice idea. I brought the fabric in Ballarat, while I was waiting for Dad to have minor surgery. I didn't have a pattern, just talked it through with the shop owner. And I am two squares (24") short :( with only myself to blame! I am not upset, in fact I am pleased so far! Mainly because it looks better then I had imagined and because I got all the directional animal print facing the right way! Because I have to order more background fabric (Grunge) then I might get extra to add a small border, so the star floats a bit. Its already 48" square, so perhaps just a inch or two wide.
Happy quilting Sue.
