By hook or by crook

A finish!Thank goodness, I have finally finished this quilt, well the binding really.  I finished this quilt some months ago and sent it off to be quilted, but when I got it back, it wasn't quilted the way I asked it to be.  So I put it in the back of the cupboard, it was quilted nicely but I had an image in my head and it doesn't look like what I wanted but..............................I have finally gotten over it and decided this morning that by hook or by crook I would bind it today!  And by lunch  time I have!!
Another finish down it does feel good and last nite while watching rugby with the boys I made some peach jam.  There is a small tree down the farm and I managed to get enough to make a small lot of jam! (The possums won't be happy that I stole the last of the peaches!) And I also did afew pickled onions-my boy's love them!  Well the digger is here today also, doing afew jobs, so I went for a look and took these few photo's from the back of the farm, this is my favourite spot on the farm................the view is amazing, have a look for yourself.

Well I better head off and do some more sewing while I can,
Happy stitching, Michellle.


  1. Oh lucky you Michelle! That view is amazing. You've been a very busy girl. The peach jam looks yum I can almost taste it. Well done on the finished project.
