Little Helper

I had a little helper with the washing yesterday. He likes to put about seven pegs on a sock! Much as I was in a hurry I just can't discourage a child that wants to help.

I've had a rather busy week again and all I really want to do is sit down and work out how to blog properly. I finally figured out how to get comments on and I'm slowly becoming familiar with my blog.
Yesterday I went to Hettie's Patch, a wonderful quilting shop in Adelaide, and I came out significantly poorer, but very inspired! I think I will be shopping there again and I'm keen to do a quilting course there as well. There are so many things I want to do at the moment and there is so little time in the day. I need to find a way to make crafting my job!

Each year for my birthday I am lucky enough to have a tree full of almond blossom. I love the fact that it has delicate little flowers that are attached to an old gnarled trunk. This photo was taken yesterday when it was sunny. Today as I look out the window there is a grey sky and we've had a little rain. The trunk looks almost black which is a stark contrast to the whiteness of the flowers. Isn't nature just perfect.
