Garden Party Purse

Another one for the pressie drawer - the first "scrappy" project from the recent sort out.  There's a riot of summer garden colour in this wallet.  All the fabrics in the patchwork came from the scrapbag including the binding leftover from the bag in my first ever blog post.  A few crazy quilt stitches and beads add some extra interest:
 
   



Talking of gardens, this was part of ours in March ............


 and now ...........
 
 
There's still quite a lot to do but it's so much more managable for us now thanks to an enthusiastic young gardener who lives nearby, friends and freecycle for a lot of the bricks and paving.
 

If anybody know how to get rid of these weeds, we'd be really grateful for some advice.  Suddenly appearing out of nowhere a couple of years ago we've having an awful trouble getting rid of them and they're spreading like mad!


Thankyou for all your recent comments, I do read them all and digest what you say - thankyou!!

Your weeds are, I'm pretty sure, Rosebay Willow Herb. You need to pull them out before the flowers go to seed, or when you see them if you are not enjoying their flowers in the meantime. They grow from seeds which blow in the wind or via birds, so not too invasive, luckily. Well done on getting such good value from Freecycle - your garden is coming on well! I'm jealous.
