I’m feeling a little neglectful, disappearing since February… eeek
It wasn’t intentional, and I wish I could say I’ve been here, there and everywhere.
But in fact I’ve mostly been right here at home, just doing stuff.
Which has been very nice.
All of a sudden, it’s Autumn and I love it, this is my favourite season.
As you can see I have a few roses hanging in there,
this is typical of Central Victoria where the roses will get a second bloom after summer.
But the trees are giving it away
In the Northern Hemisphere, Spring Market is nigh in Portland, Oregon.
I would love to have been there but alas, not this year.
However I have just sent a quilt over for Marianne Elizabeth‘s booth there.
I’ve been busy designing and making the quilt using her newest fabric range
Tatiana by RJR fabrics.
I moved the sewing machine in to the house when the fabric arrived, parked it up on the end of the dining table so I could sew late in to the evenings.
The stars I made using English Papers, that was a lot of triangles.
However I had the top complete in four days, but that did include sewing well in to the evenings.
Not bloomin’ bad huh, if I do say so myself.
Below is a little bit of distraction, I fancy making three more for a centre of something.
It uses a Margot Krager Dargate Indigo, I have quite a bit of this and the others from the same range
so will potter about with this over the winter.
Yesterday I picked up the latest copy of Homespun magazine.
They have a whole new look and I like it a lot.
Inside there is the pattern for one of my quilts,
This is the first time I’ve had a quilt in Homespun so I’m feeling pleased and just a bit chuffed.
They’ve done a really nice job with the styling, I haven’t shown my cat that there’s another cat sitting on her quilt tho
For the time being she’s making do with this one
I’m off to sew, something…anything.
til soon, a lot sooner I hope
