Before I tell you about the CHRISTMAS FABRICS I am giving away this month, I just have to show and tell you the mess we created on our property this week!
For the past many years this property was surrounded by trees, which we loved when we first moved here three plus years ago, but, now that the fall is almost over, and on close inspection of the rag tag looking branches and limbs, it was noticed that something was definitely eating away at their insides. Consequently, all of the diseased trees and nuisance trees have been evicted from their nested places, cut down, unfortunately in their prime, or so we thought until we spied the hollowed limbs. What a mess! I hated to have them chopped down but when something is not well and won't get better then it is time to have them removed.
|Limbs and branches from the front left garden|
|More piled up from the back of the house|
|All of the climbing rose bushes were trimmed back|
|Now the back garden is taking shape|
|Hey, we can see the street corner now|
|There is a fence back there!|
|More leaves to add to the yard waste|
|Another pile begun|
|These leaves seem to be endless|
Hopefully when Tuesday rolls around next week all of this debris will be tidied up before the bad weather decides to set in. Can you believe it, today is November 5th and our weather here in the Bay remains absolutely beautiful, with temperatures ranging in the mid 60's by the time noon rolls around making it very nice to work outside. I feel a but saddened by the loss of the trees and I am certain all of the birds who nested in them will find it a loss as well. We are planning to plant new healthy trees come spring and hopefully a nice landscaping plan will fall into place.
All this outside work on the grounds left little time for sewing.
BUT this morning I stole some time from the outside. I listened to what my best friend said about that Tribble Trouble block I shared with you this week. She was so right, it was out of color kilter, and this morning I frog stitched and reworked the blocks and this is the end result. What do you think of it now? Not as dark and dreary as first sewn? I believe it looks like it was meant to now, 100% better, don't you think so too? Thanks Els!!!
