autumn days gone

Winter has truly set in in the Southern Hemisphere. But, this year I really was out in it, through the onset and into Autumn (fall). I had forgotten how good a bracing walk feels and how beautiful Autumn is. Even the dog started to get fit. Unfortunately when nearing the equinox it’s too dark to be walking anywhere, especially with my ageing dog!20140617-205030-75030158.jpg

Biscornu and other sewing

Biscornu. If you had never heard of this I wouldn’t be surprised as I hadn’t either. French meaning crooked, it’s basically an ornamental pincushion. When you search this in google images you will discover a plethora of designs colours and sizes. Anyway, watch this space. I’ve also been unbelievably busy with a quilt gift now in the hand quilting stage. Hence my tardy updates. Happy stitching!

Hunters Star Quilt …….. for a friend

I have a dear friend, who remains out of touch with social media technology, who will be the recipient of this Hunter Star Quilt. I am pretty safe sharing it’s progress online as I am sure it’s existence will remain somewhat buried to him and luckily, as it will be his birthday gift in September. This 60″ square quilt has plenty of cutting and piecing but given its recipient has made me about 7 years worth of bespoke Christmas decorations, I owe the time and more! I am really happy with its progress so far and love the civil war replica fabric called Civil War Melodies, by Judie Rothermel who designs for Marcus Fabrics if you have never used Marcus do yourself a favour as they are a dream to work with. In Australia they are pretty pricey but worth it for special projects. Anyway, back to it. Happy Stitching!
