fresh vegies and a surprise gift....

Well Quiltober definitely makes for some boring blogging.
Before I go on here is the latest tally.. No quilting Friday or Saturday night so I will need to get going tonight.

56 flowers quilted
22 leaves quilted
there have been a few lovely stitchers joining me for Quiltober they are
Fiona from bubz rugs
Sheila from Sheila's quilt world
Narelle from Pins and whiskers
Marg from country quilts and dolls

Happy quilting everyone.

Yesterday morning Hubbie and I went to my mum's to help get some garden beds ready for tomato planting, which we did as well. She has quite a few beds but just needs some help with the manual labour.
For our efforts mum gave us some fantastic fresh vegies from the garden.

Yummy fresh beetroot, carrots and peas. I cooked up the beet greens and we ate them in salad too. 
Can't beat home grown.

A lovely little envelope arrived in the mail this week from Bev at Kainga Happenings.. She sent me a surprise milk jug doily. It is just gorgeous. I love the little tag too, so cute.
 I have a bit of a thing for milk jug doilies and it has lovely blue glass beads, so perfect for me. It will be right at home here and has found a jug to sit on straight away. Thankyou so much Bev.

off to Kilmore quilt show this morning! Looking forward to that..
Hope you have had a crafty weekend!

Those vegies look delicious. I only grow strawberries and tomatoes because they go well in pots. The beetroot look superb, they are so good baked when small like that. Lucky you.

Hope you enjoy the show - I was there yesterday - they sure are a creative lot of ladies - very inspiring.
Gorgeous gift and you are right - nothing beats home grown.

Hello Marina,

Those vegies look so yummy, you will have to show us some photos of your Mums's vegie garden later on. So glad the cover has found a little jug to live with. Enjoy the quilt show.
Happy days.

I am a little jealous of all that lovely fresh produce. I can imagine how delicious it all tastes. Sometimes the sewing just has to take second place.
Hope you had a great day in Kilmore.
