As the weather was nice and warm for a change I decided to take myself the long way into town via the local park. It is not something I do very often but when I get there I always tell myself to go there more often. Most of the tulips had disappeared but a few beds were still in full bloom and these purple ones are my favourites.
These tiny little daisies just looked so pretty.
I had to lean right over the stream to get this shot hoping that I wouldn't lose my balance. I can be a bit clumsy at times.
Vivary Park has the most gaudiest fountain but I love it. The beautiful building in the background used to be Jellalabad Army Barracks but are now very nice apartments.
I just adore the cherubs.
Always on the look out for a good quilt pattern I reckon there must be several ideas here. This is around the base of the fountain. It would look good as a quilt design for a block or as an applique design. I may have to do this now to prove my point.
These three ducks were having a nice snooze but the little girl who stood near to me decided that they needed to be awake. I managed to photograph them just before they jumped in the water and swam off.
Valentina this one is for you.
I have started to assemble all the blocks with their sashing and it is now looking very different. I may not show it again until it is finished. I am priding myself on not having bought anything at all to make this quilt - apart from thread which seems to have taken a large amount.The backing I already had from a project long abandoned, as was the wadding and then Wendy gave some of hers to help me out. We do a swap sometimes if we need something. Neither of us liked the wadding which we had used for hand quilting but it machine quilts very well. Can't remember the name of it - something like warm and bright?!!!! The sashings would be whatever I had the most of in my stash. Lucky for me there was a lot of pink!!
I have been thinking of titles to call this quilt. Val has been giving me some of her scraps and calls them "gleanings" so that was one title. This one with apologies to Lennon and McCartney " I get by with a little help from my friends". I think I have settled on "Salvaged". Maybe you have one that I haven't thought of!!
