Lucy update.......

Friday night stitching...........OMG it was so good...........my buddy Kylie, champagne, stitching, slipping and sliding thru the paddocks to get home (early mark from work) because we got another 26mms of rain............I can see the green tinge growing today as the day has gone on.......perfect grass growing day........OMG exciting........still got a way to go but its the best rain for 12 months what we have had this month.........can't stop feeding yet but hopefully we can soon........
Champagne............English paper piecing........Kylie started cutting a new special project.............
I glued a few for her...........and glued a few Lucy's.........Even pieced one of her blocks...........and she nearly had one done before she had to go home..............
The sunset light was amazing..........so not captured in this photo but you can see the light glistening on some PUDDLES................OMG PUDDLES................
Today inbetween many other things I spent some time working out the nitty gritty for Lucy..................
laid her all out on the floor and worked out what needs what to finish blocks, fillers, make edge fillers, corners etc...........
Once this pile is glued and packed like the top right bag I will be done with Lucy gluing...........woohoo......the end is in sight.......esp if I have no more cutting.........unless she grows another row - still to be determined once the whole top is together........
ok must go........
dinners cooking.......chicken rolled roast and baked vegies........
Have a fabulous weekend..........
Catch you later......
