Monday, Monday, hope your week is off to a good start girls.
I'm back into the teacosy making for a special order.
I've been wanting to sew a Foxglove design for some time, so today was the day.....
Let me tell ya......there was alot of snipping going on and it might look pretty straight forward and simple now that it's done but it took me hours!!
BUT, I'm thrilled with how it turned out and although I love using bright colours I'm also loving the softness of the pastel shades.....
Finding the right quote for the reverse side was the next step and I just couldn't go past Monet.
I think most gardeners would agree.....
A little Autumn inspiration has been stitched onto another
'cosy in the making'.
This 'new' blanket is such a gorgeous green,
the photo just doesnt' do it justice.
Y'all know how much I love Autumn colours....
Talking about Autumn let's have a wander outside and see what's happening....
This Crabapple was looking a little sad after our hot Summer and No 1 was very worried that it was going to turn up it's toes.
Thankfully, it's come good and colouring up nicely with
lots of golden, coppery tones....
Beautiful new growth on the Leucadendron......
The Maples along the driveway are turning on the colour, not wanting to be out done.
Something weird has happened to the photo, hmm!
The bees are still buzzing away amongst the Zinnias which have been flowering for months now.
If any of you girls in the Northern Hemisphere are looking for something colourful and hardy to plant in your garden you really can't go past Zinnias.....♥♥♥......just sharing the love.
As well as some tea cosies I made a red version of my
Seems it's all about red today ♥♥♥
Finally a scene from Sunday evening, golden light shining through a smokey, stormy haze.....just beautiful.
The Janome is cranking this week, I'm having fun putting together designs for my cosies.
It's been a little while since I made one and I have enjoyed the break.
The temp has climbed into the high 20's this week. It seems the warmer weather wants to hang around for a little bit longer and
recent rains have greened up the paddocks.
Gives me a chance to keep working on my granny square blanket before Winter arrives.....it's growing slowly.
So what's been happening with you girls?
Love to hear,thanks for popping by...
Have a great week.
