TGI Nearly Christmas!

It's almost Christmas and it's summer Down Under - don't worry, Alpaca picnic... Groan...

This little girl nearly made me miss my quilting deadline for TGIFF but never fear, all is under control at Quokka Quilts.

This will be my last TGIFF for a while, so I will sign out with a video from our near neighbours who will also be enjoying a warm Christmas this year...

A garden wedding finish

"Once upon a time a bride-to-be wanted to hold her wedding at Tree Elle Retreat as the most beautiful spot she knew… then Tree Elle came up for sale and she bought it so that other brides could have their fairy tale wedding as well."

Today's finish coincides with my brother's wedding day, and I'll be down on the very southern tip of Western Australia braving the Antarctic winds where they live for a garden wedding. November is supposedly almost summer but the forecast is 18C and rainy - let's hope that that changes. Living down in the cooler climes, a wedding quilt was in order.  
For the big reveal (let's hope the bride and groom are too busy to be trawling my blog), head over to Quokka Quilts.

End of a season

The last week of August marks the last week of winter for those of us Down Under... and the last week of summer for the Northerners. We've been lashed by storms and the temperature has dropped as low as (wait for it) 30F (gasp!!!) where I am (I can hear MR shivering at the horror of it). But the end of winter down here means it's time to pack up our beanies and send them north. All I can say about  it is:

The always impressive Anja is our wonderful hostess this week. Please head on over and have a look at her work!
