I took some leave from work, to help my Mother pack up her house.
It was a busy week - amongst the flowers!
She has a beautiful garden . . . and so do her friends. I may have managed a garden tour or two between the boxes!
Mum's a great Floral Artist, so there are many accessories, just like any other hobby. (Not to mention the 17 boxes from the knitting machine hobby!)
My father was in love with newspapers, and every other scrap of paper he ever wrote on. One of my jobs was to sift through the MANY MANY boxes of paperwork and keep "the good stuff!" Lots of treasures were unearthed.
This is the keeping and . . .
this is the burning!
With all the memories from childhood, I started missing my kids . . .
I had to think about heading home
One more trip back for the MASSIVE Garage Sale
. . . and then it will be good-bye Greyacres,
. . . and mum will be joining me to live in Ballarat.
. . . and so the next chapter will begin -
"the world is unfolding as it should"

New Table Runner and Mats
Had a go at making round mats, and used all my special fabrics so I could be with them every day.
A new vase from my clever sister.
You can check out her blog here.
A new crotched/felted basket with some yummy JET wool.
And beautiful flowers in my garden!
I'm LOVING Springtime

Yesterday, I had some friends over who sat on these chairs in the garden.
At a certain point in the afternoon, Miss Flowergarden served tea and biscuits. I'm sure Max the cat thought that if he waited patiently, there might be some spoils today. . . perhaps he gave up waiting and fell asleep
I did sneak out to my favourite Nursery (Lambley) this afternoon to see the tulips.
Then home again to my garden
. . . and I thought it looked pretty good. It did help that the sun was shining today.
I think he really was waiting for afternoon tea!
