Where did the week go?

I can not believe that it has been a week since I last wrote, won't let that happen again. We had a few decent days so I have been trying to catch up on my vegie plot, finishing a new flannel quilt for DD13 to take to camp next week and some block swaps.

Here is the lastest quilt "striptease". I had put it into the dryer.... yes that's right the dryer so that it goes all raggety. After a couple of hours I thought it must be finished by now I opened the dryer.... it's gone. How can it possibly open the door and hop out mmmm..... maybe another seniors moment where did I put it? No, somebody has taken it who could that be? Did not have to go far to find it's new owner already giving it a test run.

About 2 months ago at about 3am whilst I was pondering my bedroom ceiling I started thinking about how to keep the snails out of my strawberries this year one thing led to another and I had this idea of a self watering strawberry tower constructed out of bibs and bobs such as below. Well I have finally built it, now I just have to see if it works, stay tuned. Check out In the garden page for end result.
