wordless weekend . . . that would be impossible for me!!

Greetings all,
I often marvel at 'wordless weekend' posts other bloggers manage to produce with beautiful photography & ideas, no words required.  Me, i'm a talker & none of these images can express the super suprise i had this morning!!  After a lovely customer left my studio, i was vacuuming & about to start an ordinary Saturday of birthday parties & sewing, when . . . my husband turned up on my doorstep!!  I hadn't seen my husband for 7 weeks & wasn't expecting him until next Saturday, so emotions of excitement, joy, love & freedom are all whirling around our house today.

Back to the post i had planned on doing today which was a 'last weekend vs this weekend' set of images showing how we roll in different weather in this family.  Our children were all born in the tropics of Tiwi NT & seem to be very attached to the seasons.  They don't feel the cold & hanker to be outdoors at all times!!  Fine by me, keeps them very fit & healthy.  But when it rains, we get crafty . . .
coloured paper chatter boxes on the studio floor . . .
because the skies looked like this . . .
& i had to dry my screen prints like this . . .
our sleep over guest playing board games & loving her new Posie purse.
Then sunshine allowed me to mow the lawns & run over the solar powered electric fence, ooppss . . .
& a spot of gardening - look, a Jacaranda tree has suddenly sprouted by the tomatoes . . .
painting by the front door while the middle sisters are at a party . . .
& a new bright fruit bowl patchwork cloth - needs to be lined & pressed.
Now back to that husband who i've missed so much!!  Have happy weekends everyone, love Posie

I love your patchwork. I'm a big fan of yellow. A very underated colour I think. X

Actually, now that I really look at that patchwork, i'm a little bit excited because I have just ordered about half of that fabric for myself! Hubby going to the States tomorrow and I get it delivered to his hotel. He lives in fear of having to open his bags at customs and explain ;)

Happy Weekend! That is a long time without hubby. Love the surprise too. But now that he is back, can he fix the broken cord? :)

Posie Patchwork said...

Thanks ladies, having a ball!! Of course, no sewing, but with an extra parent to help with school runs, that buys me an extra 2 hours a day this week!!
The solar powered electric fence is under repairs, but lots of tutting & careless comments coming from the garage aimed at me.
Have a great day, love Posie

Tracey said...

Becky said...

You wordles - you fail my dear:)

Have a great weekend with Mr Posie - how long do you have him for?

angelique said...

You lucky girl to have such a nice surprise......I probably wouldn't have done the mowing of the lawn over the weekend though I would have got him to do it!

Jelly Wares said...

I am so envious of that divine fabric stash that you have... You are one very lucky lady...

Hugs
Jodie :)

What a wonderful surprise!

My children were a big lover of chatterboxes (didn't realise that that is what they were called - we used to make them all the time). Crafting with children is so much fun.
