Jaden's Wagga & Our Next Get Together

Rug day at Anne's in Warrandyte was the usual relaxed, lovely day among friends (minus Chris, sigh). We need to take more photo's as everyone was quite productive!

You know when you dye a heap of blanket, only to find it too dark for your hooky rug, or too green/blue...? Well, over time I had quite a bit of green I wasn't using in any current rugs. I dyed another deeper green piece and made this Wagga (follow the link for others) for my eldest grandson's 19th birthday.
The red tartan comes from a kilt I wore on constant rotation when he was a baby (and I was a young'en').
I have pieced together a back from various fabrics I have had in my collection, including some of my Dad's jeans and my Mum's tablecloth (unfinished from when she was 14 years old). These being my grandsons dear departed and ever adoring great-grandparents.

THE NEXT GET TOGETHER IS AT MY PLACE (ROBYNE'S) IN THE PATCH ON THE 25TH OF MAY. Phone 0410876096 or email r.m.square@bigpond or call any of us or comment here for instructions on how to get here. 10am onward.

Please come and join us! It's heaps of fun. Once you start you'll never stop, I assure you.

Jaden's Wagga

Jaden's Wagga (not finished, no back yet) made using dyed blankets and some of my old favourite kilts (one I wore to death when he was a little boy and I was a little Grandma).
Happy Birthday for last week boyo! My first-born grandson with my last-born grandson (his baby brother) and my beautiful Ruby.

The Lithops Are About To Burst Forth Into Bloom

Ross says they are like unicorn farts. Ha ha ha!

View From Our Garden

The view over past Gembrook (Victoria, Australia) at lunch time today.
It's not close to us, nor heading our way but it's shaping up to be a huge fire. Scary.
