This time of year is stunning.... cool/cold nights and glorious days
Late afternoon yesterday we went for a stroll around a nearby park....
Love this spiky grass - in real it is like one of those optical illusions with the round bally of soft spikes
a lovely outlook - it was a clear day and we could see the Bunya mountains in the distance....
One of the silver wattles is full of buds.... I found a few of these earely lovely yellow balls - it will be covered soon...
The grevillea's are in bud - we will go back in a couple of weeks....
This week at home I finished the stitching on this Santa - which has been around for a long time. Marina sent me the pattern ages ago and now I need to choose fabrics and finish it off to be a mini quilt ....
I continued with more tarts at stitching with the girls .... and a couple of evenings....
The Sashiko piece is finished.... I do like the look and am learning a bit more each time.
I'm not sure what I will do with this piece .....
I had a quiet morning tis week and cut and sewed 12 more blocks for the old shirts quilt - I have enough now to make a 63" square quilt.... next part is sewing all the blocks together of course...
Some more progress has been made on my Whitework...... I am speeding up - it took me about 2 hours to do one heart yesterday at Guild!!!
Righto, Gotto Go.... an out day today and I need another coffee before I go....
Have a lovely weekend...
The flowers & the shrubs in bloom are just so lovely Fiona ... are they early? Are they meant to bloom in springtime not autumn ... or is this normal for your climate? We have had beautiful autumnal days this week too ... yes cold nights & mornings but blue skies. I love everything you are working on (as usual) & especially love Mr Santa!!
Love the flowers....your first time seeing flannel flowers? They are really lovely, their leaves are pretty too. The grass is (I think) called Lomandra, we have some here, it grows well. Our forecast for Sunday morning is minus 3!
I think that this is the best time of year (weatherwise). The gardens around your area are beautiful with so many flowers blooming. Thanks for taking us along on the walk.
This is a lovely post, Fiona. That shrub (?) does look like an optical illusion. It's mesmerizing. Gorgeous too. Beautiful grevilleas. They look so dainty. I've never seen a flannel flower before. Love the name and the flower is beautiful too. You didn't give that needle a lot of rest, haha. Enjoy your weekend. Tomorrow I am working at the main office, in the jailhouse! Haha. That'll be spooky! ;^)
Gorgeous blooms. Love the colour of the hibiscus, just stunning. Lovely to go for a walk along with you through your photo's. Your projects are all looking good.
That wattle is very early flowering. Good progress on the tarts and whitework. Love the Santa stitchery.
Your old shirt quilt will be very fun, and will likely provide some great memories.
Wonderful visit to the park, it is great to see the flowers, we had grevilleas here but David is allergic to them, so most had to go. The old shirt blocks look wonderful, as does Santa. Your sashiko is stunning, you are making great progress with your whitework.
The flower pics are all gorgeous - love the little star flower. Your sashiko looks good - it's one of those things 'on my list'! I have the fabric, thread, patterns and even some templates.... Santa is fun and the whitework is coming along a treat! xx
You are certainly experiencing gorgeous weather at the moment. We are now getting some good frosts and seem to have entered winter early. Your stitching continues to be varied and lovely. Enjoy.
Gorgeous pictures of the flowers - love flannel flowers.
the white woek is progressing well - as are the shirt blocks.
I have a sashiko piece I want to stitch - but need to work out how I will finish it . .LOL...another project!
Good morning Fiona wow what a beautiful walk you went on ,love the flowers,lots of colour.
You are amazing my friend with the amount of work that you do ,love it all ,well done 🌹🤍🌹
so many beautiful flowers. I particularly like the flannel flower.
lovely work and you look like you are going great guns on that embroidery!
That spikey grass is rather beautiful. Lots of pretty flora there. Well done finishing the Sashiko. How are your eyes going with that white work?
Lovely to see all those flowers. Thank you for sharing. Santa looks great as do your shirt blocks and tarts. Your sashiko is very pretty, the colours are striking against the black.
