Bits & Pieces

Hi friends, midweek already, and what lovely spring sunshine we're enjoying this week. 

A few bits and pieces to share today.  Sadly, one of our local quilting shops has just closed last weekend. I got quite a shock to read their email newsletter earlier in the month about the closure so made sure I went along to pick up a few necessities :)

I'll really miss being able to pop by to pick up fabrics, etc.  I quite often stopped by during my lunch break.  Very sad :(

On a cheerier note, I found this very cute Mollie Makes book in our local bookshop yesterday.

Includes 20 little Christmas crafts including this cute grocery tote

and my favourite from the book, a Santa Kit :)

It's filled with lots of other sweet projects including knitting, paper craft and felt craft. Well worth the $18.00 NZ.

I finally remembered to take a photo of our new greenhouse that Glenn has been working on over the past few months.  It's now at the stage ready for the windows to go in and then he'll make up some shelves for our seed trays and pots so we can get some growing underway.

Our little vegetable garden has been supplying us with a few goodies  - broccoli, cabbage, spring onions, leeks and a bumper crop of parsley. Soon I'll plant the first of our summer lettuces and tomatoes.

Have a lovely day x

It is rather sad to hear of a quilt shop closing down. I like your purchases - especially the hangers. What a great green house.

It is sad when quilt shop closes. I just got an email a couple of days ago that my very favorite quilt shop in Yuma is closing as well after 6 1/2 years. They had quality service and excellent staff. I am very sad.

What a shame that another shop is closing. It seems so many are going this route.
Your greenhouse is incredible! I wish I had something like this at our place.
