September = Spring

One thing I love about where I live is the seasons.  Whilst we do not have snow we can get cold in winter... so log fires, and soup and extra quilts, ugg boots and jumpers.....  and it's a short and relatively mild season and mostly filled with happy sunshine.....

Spring on the other hand.... is glorious.... cool evenings, warm days, still holding on the comfy socks for a while, shooting buds, spring flowers, the carnival, bbq's on the patio ... also pollen and sneezes ... there is always a price to pay...

1 September is the first day of Spring for us, and though the weather doesn't automatically change to me its a day of hope - dreaming of what is to come... I love it....

The beginning of the month is also show off what I have done in August.....

Linking up with Joy for Finishing Stitches these are blocks I have completed whilst working on my Unfinished Projects...  

4 more blocks in the Dutch Treat Quilt done in reverse applique....

and for OPAM hosted by Kris and Peg I have 6 finished projects... my first big crochet project - a ripple blanket, a baby quilt, a Christmas banner and 3 scrap baskets

The baby giraffe quilt was one of my UFO's at the beginning of the year one completed item for Finishing stitches...

Meanwhile I started a new project (it's only fair I do that since I finished some!) ..... sewing along with the No Fuss Stitch-a-long with this cute quilt with stitcheries and I am using some of my older ranges of Tilda fabrics...

Righto, Gotto Go.....I liked Susan's idea of cutting all the pieces for the above quilt so I want to start pressing my fabrics to start that today....
