Hello! How was your weekend, good I hope.
We had a good one, I managed to make some good progress on my new blanket that I am calling my Big Hearted Blankie. I am hoping to have this finished next week at some stage. The plan is to write up a pattern for this one and get it out on Ravelry as soon as I can.
I thought my stripes of hearts looked very colourful all rolled up, I love looking at colour sandwiches like this!
We went to the Victorian State Dahlia Show the other day, I really love dahlias and want to get more colours in garden next year. There were so many gorgeous showy blooms it was a sight to behold. I had a good chat with the dahlia people, it always amazes me how people with a passion are so good to talk to about their interest, so generous with their knowledge, I always find their enthusiasm rubbing off on me and I want to experience their level of interest, no wonder I have so many hobbies! Anyway, I bought a few new colours for my garden and am going to go down to a huge dahlia farm outside Geelong in a few weeks where you can see masses of varieties in bloom and order them for the next season. I am feeling a bit inspired by my garden at the moment, have to keep chipping away at my jungle while the motivation lasts! :)
.....a room full of colour.....
....love these spidery ones at the front.......
........I love this peachy coral coloured one, I will be looking to get a few in these shades I think......
,.......these are the humble offering from my garden this week, I love the red and white one, I must remember to divide this one in a few months!
So, what have you been up to lately?
Have you got a heap of hobbies vying for your time like me?
Bye for now!
