It’s been a pretty stressful week with Melbourne and one adjoining Shire going into lockdown again as COVID-19 numbers keep rising. I totally understand why it’s been done, it’s just frustrating…..for all!

Thankfully the sun has been shining for the last couple of days and I took myself off for a walk this morning spying this gorgeous camellia. Don’t you just love the variegation of pinks in the petals?

Saw that the moon was still out too (and has its fullness contributed to the madness???)

and in my garden the polyanthus are still thriving

the daisy is starting to get buds

I counted 6 spikes on my orchids

and this shadow effect caught my eye

Plus I’ve had some happy mail from broderie – this fabric is beautifully soft and the most amazing shade of aqua. Now, what to use it for……….??

Hang in there lovelies, we will make it through the next 6 weeks!

Stay safe, stay well.

Much love

    Dear Lovie….What a nice post you wrote today and very expressive of how we all feel in this time of “plague”. We hate the lock down but we have to do it for everyone’s sake. This requires a lot of self discipline. I live in the US where these traits are lacking for a sub set of the population and things get worse by the day. I l enjoy your posts seeing your flowers and your plans and look forward to the days (which will be here one day in some form) when you resume your your visits with other quilters and show what everyone is doing.
    PS I love the blue fabric your bought from Broderie. Looks perfect for some fabric painting. Keep up the good work….we all look forward to your posts.

  8. I’m sure you will think of something wonderful for that fabric! Stay safe, stay well!
