I have lots to catch you up on, so I’ll put a few things into this one post….if you don’t mind.
I spent a lot of last week up with Ma Kettle (all is well, thank you for asking) and in between our running around I had a little time to walk in her garden. There are lots of plants still flowering despite the heat of northern Victoria this Summerand in spite being cut right back, this lemon tree has decided to give itself another chance; Ma is delighted to see it growing a little each day.Out shopping we scored these on super special and they looked so nice on Ma’s tableLooking out of the train window on the way home, the sky was covered in this strange cloud formation. It looked like ocean wavesand you can see how dry the countryside is; it has that tired end of Summer, dry, worn out, faded look
Arriving home, I got to spend a little bit of time in my
very messy sewing room, and while I was cutting up the binding for “Kaffe and Linen Triangles” I espied this out of the corner of my eye – don’t worry it was on the verandah, but looked amazing in the sunshine. The spider itself actually looked orange. I can’t believe the size of that web and so intricate.
On Sunday, I had the pleasure of teaching at the quilt shop‘s first ever Sunday School, along with GJ, Rae and Kim. It was held at Montsalvat in Eltham, a place I’d never been to before. Such quaint olde worlde buildings. You can read about it by clicking the link above. This is the room we were inall decked out with quiltsand this was my students’ tableall ready with packs of fabric to choose fromas they explored templates and hand piecing. I made my block into a block book and the students were given a pattern to make one too.
More tomorrow, my lovelies.
