Catch up.....


I have been doing some sewing even though I haven't been around here much just lately. Life has a way of intruding upon all the things we want to do doesn't it?
Anyway, I finished this gorgeous Sue Spargo pin cushion today, I've had the kit for simply ages but just never got around to making it...

 I started it on my day off on Monday and finished it today at work during a blackout...?  Lovely isn't it?

I've also been busy trying to get my Bird Dance BoM going.......


These are January's blocks........



 there are three blocks a month...all birds...





each month the birds are different, I'm loving doing it but it's going to be hard to keep up with I think....





because I also have this one to do...!      This is the Sue Spargo Flowerbed quilt that I'm teaching as a BoM at Millrose, I'm a few ahead at the moment so I have to keep the momentum going...! 



Do you love autumn? I do, I love the colours and the gentleness of this season. There's an old saying I've heard that when the Hawthorn bush has a huge crop of berries the winter will be harsh....something along those lines anyway....


if that's right then we're in for a cold winter....


the Hawthorns on our property are heavy with berries this year, some of the branches almost touching the ground....lots of food for our feathered friends..!



it was a really odd day today, strong winds, not cold though, some rain and what I thought was a dust storm as I was driving home from work but which turned out to be smoke! 


Not sure where the fires were this time but the smoke was quite thick up here....

Now these two haven't made an appearance for a while have they?  I walked into our lounge room the other day and this was the greeting I got....hello mum, no, we're not getting up!! enthusiastic aren't they? it was hot, so I guess this was the best place to be...   :o)
