Following on from the glorious sunshine bestowed on us during the onset of Spring, Melbourne has put on a more traditional trend and commenced its Spring showers!
The garden has come to life in a mass of blossoms and new fresh green foliage. I love the contrast between the deep pink Maples sat beside their lime-green brothers…
Plus I had the pleasure of meeting this little fellow… an adorable Rosella…
They are usually so shy and scare easy, so I was so glad to get a half decent photo. This one was alone, so I hope it hadn’t lost his mate because they’re always in pairs, they mate for life.
With the weather feeling cooler I felt right at home stitching this cute design to be featured in the October issue of Elefantz Home magazine. I was delighted when Jenny asked me if I’d like to pop on over to be her guest… because the e-zine is Jenny’s Christmas issue, and designing for the festive season is my all-time favourite thing to do. This lovely lady knows me too well!
Are you already a subscriber? If you aren’t already but would like to be, then head on over here to find out what Jenny offers in each of her issues… Trust me, when reading Jenny’s mag, it’s like having a cup of tea with an old friend, such is her easy-flowing and gentle style. The subscription is fantastic value, but individual issues are also available through the Elefantz pattern store.
Brrr… okay, looking at this snow is making me feel chilly now. In all honesty, it’s so cold in the house that my hands are like ice blocks! Time to go and make a cup of tea I think and return to some machine quilting. I’ve got my sewing machine set up on the dining room table and am determined not to remove it until my quilt top is complete. We’ve been having TV dinners this past week! I wonder how long that will last?!!
What are you up to this weekend? Christmas crafting perhaps? Pottering about in the garden? Or resting up? Whatever you decide on – I hope you have a good one!
