Spring blossoms

I love the colours of spring, the jacaranda trees are out in full blossom and also the native orchids are flowering. They are growing in the tops of the trees on the farm with no special treatment, it makes one truly appreciate the wonders of nature. Today is just one of those perfect spring days.

Back into things

The pattern was purchased as a kit from Canningtown Patchwork who was a merchant at our club's exhibition in September.

Last weekend I went to our quilting retreat run by the club and held at a Recreation facility at a dam, where we sew all weekend and dont have to plan any meals, all is catered for. We had a Christmas swap at the retreat- I made a wine cooler to carry a bottle of wine in for Christmas and in exchange I received a bag to store the ham in. I also got some sewing finished which was great, a Table runner which I shall use at Christmas time.
