This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

A Gardener's Journal...Block D and Passionfruit Slice...


Moving along here with my Gardener's Journal quilt that I am doing on the Stitch-a-long hosted by Chookyblue...
Finally, Block D...this one seemed to take forever...especially with the corn!!!


I'm using what I have...particularly any fabrics that I purchased from Anni...
however last week I purchased a fat 1/4 that I thought I could use...
I have used it to the right of the corn... (the blue one) 
Mr Armchair picked up that it was different to the others...
 but I think it's going to stay...
I'll see how it looks later on down the track...





And all stitched up to the other block...
Now it's onto Block E...

Meanwhile, over at Innerpickle I saw a really easy recipe for Passionfruit Slice...


lemon zest all ready to go in...


into the oven...


cooling off...


Simply delicious!!! 
For the recipe go to My Dolce Vita over here,
delicious for passionfruit fans, guaranteed...and best of all...nice'neasy!!!
Bon Appetit, Dzintra

What a fun quilt!! The corn is so cute!! I'll have to try that slice, or maybe show the recipe to my partner, he's a better cook than me, I do my bit when it comes to the eating part :)
