Emma's 'Quilts for Leukeumia' quilt is all finished and mailed. I photographed it in my favourite March light, which probably makes it a touch on the orange side, but I don't think that matters. It was all foundation pieced on a thick wadding, so tying it was quite enough quilting. Has a fabulous red and white spot backing and I, of course, would have loved it here! But that's the fun of quilting. I know a little 4 year old in New Zealand needs it more than me, and of course my name is NOT Emma!.My darling Archie dog helped as always... you get a rare pic of me here...a la naturale! Well, not THAT natural, (you aren't being punished!) i mean, in farmwife mode. Arch is 8 and starting to have a few morning arthritis issues, I hate seeing that, it reminds me he can't keep me company and scare the foxes away from all my free ranging chooks for ever.Look at him begging for a scratch.
Had 2 warm days this week so managed to get a bit more crop off, now we only have a little barley and a lot of linseed to battle for. All good fun. Better run now, oven is going off...thanks to all my walnut helpers, have realy appreciated the continuing advice, struggling to get good ones, today was about my best result. i don't think I will be getting rich from walnut farming! Have a great day, Tracey
