I'm done, haymaking that is.

Yep, we finished just before one in the morning (today). Two weeks, it's never gone so fast before and with no rain in cut grass and all the hay got a lot of sun it it. We are very happy and also a little out of steam or something, waking up this morning to loads of sunshine and no hay work, it just wasn't normal. Lol. We are usually beating rain by minutes (or not) finishing it all.

I can't find the memory card for my camera, note to self: do not loan my camera unsupervised to my DD1. lol. So I can't show you what I've bin up to in my spare moments (often during minor but very annoying break downs repairs) Instead you get to see what was intended as my vegetable garden. I made this space one summer next to the stable where it gets sun most of the day, ready to use the next summer, but... here comes the but. Our dog was so happy with the new private place I had created for her, I swear that corner was covered white with her droppings the next spring, and all the springs since. Yikes, I will never put an edible thing in that garden, well apart from the Chives that grow near the wall and are always clear. Maybe she doesn't like the way it smells. And the strawberry's grow in a rectangle made of wood which the dog leaves alone too.

The photo was taken in late June and the lavender? colored flowers are almost done blooming now. I have not bin able to find the English name for them or the other flowers behind them, but there are three roses also scattered around there.

And what I've bin up to... I love scrap quilt mystery's and have done two of Bonnie's, then last winter I saw another one at Mary's (you can see it finished in March 31 on her blog, so beautiful) and wanted so much to do that too, but where Bonnie is all about 1.5", 2", 2.5" and 3.5" strips, Cynthia, the creator of this mystery uses mostly 2.3/4" strips so as I've bin doing a much needed cleaning out of my sewing room I've bin cutting strips in that size as I refold and put my fabric in a new storage place. I don't really have much fabric but when I figured it was time to fold the strips (sorted in to colors) I got a bit of a shock.... Well, that's okay, there is already a new mystery started. Lol.

Now I'm off to milking, but if I beat Hubby to the computer this evening I will answer comments and e-mails and do some blog reading. I've really missed that and the friends I've made here.



  1. Glad you were able to get that huge job all done w/o rain. Can't wait to see some of your quilts. Hugs..

  2. Sounds like you have been more than busy, Sunna. I'm behind with blog reading and blogging myself after being gone for a while. Your flowers are lovely, and I'll look forward to your quilts.
