Our friend the Librarian had a slight problem, with her silt trap into her dam, so the boys came to the rescue and dug THE PANAMA CANAL. We were powered by the Librarian's minestrone soup; lovely Armenian Nutmeg cake and a couple cups of tea.

Rupert the Wonder Dog was very much in evident as a supervisor and only stick catcher.

The Middle Sweetie was the main power house behind the breaching of the dam(n) wall.

I just love the photos that TL took, especially the last one.

We went again today to see if the water had risen and the youngest Sweetie's markers were under water. This weekend we are meant to have a storm with ~100mm of rain. The Librarian has connected her overflow from her house rain water tank and that should now flow into the dam(n) and hopefully catching more water than it ever has in its existence.

The Sweeties went away for three nights and four days to test out the new tents. I went for one night between days at work. The youngest Sweetie fell in the river and deemed it the same temperature in the water, however it was the temperature of the air that made it cold. They survived really well and had a ball and I had two nights alone.
Come in the kettle is boiling

I want to give you this link - Quilters' Show and Tell. Hermoine Agee of Lorien Quilting has come up with the great idea of getting people to submit pictures of their quilts to her for display on this blog. The idea is that everyday there will be a picture of a new quilt - daily eye candy - a fantastic idea. I use many of Hermoine's designs to quilt people's quilt - my all time favourite being Continuous Baptist Fan

These three pictures are just to show you that yes, I have been quilting.
I loooooooove Kaffe Fassett fabric, however I never buy it and would love to make a quilt with his fabric.

The quilting pattern is from Timeless Designs and is called 'Camellia' - one of my favourites. I used an Aurifil khaki coloured thread, to tone down the red and to give it some depth.
