Dusting off the blog cogs...



Oh my poor neglected blog!! I feel as though it's a house that has been locked up for too long and now is covered in silvery cobwebs and a coating of dust. As I wander through the rooms I remember happy times and hear the echoes of laughter.

Well, those merry times are calling me back so I'm going to get my peacock feather duster out, polish up the blog cogs, and get all my recent stories ready to tell.


For now I'll let some fresh air in with this random selection of photos that I've taken over the past few weeks...

Frangipanis are such a favourite flower! The way they fall from the tree is as though Mother Nature is saying "Here- take them home, put them in your hair, give one to a friend.. whatever you do enjoy them!"

Most awesome collection of fabrics ever! 
A generous gift from the heart of a beautiful friend with a beautiful heart!!

I have a 'thing' for colourful pegs. Is that weird?

A big love flower for a dear friend.

 I found a heart of gold!

A 7 year old top, still waiting to be quilted...

 I didn't style this next photo, a few raspberries sprinkled on yoghurt and it turned out as pretty as a picture. Eaten on our deck in the autumn sun.

I love how croton leaves look like leaves of fire!

 So is that enough for now?  I'll have a cup of tea or two and return with lots of colourful photos from my Whizz Bang classes.

Glad to have your post to read while eating dinner alone. Wayne is in Wodonga playing golf for the week and I am binding The 3 remaining quilts that only need fini shining touches.

I was just thinking about how seldom I post these days. Perhaps we just don't need tto share a the daily steps in our quilting lives.

Anticipating ritous pics of your classes Oh and their quilts too.

Great to see you back with a nice, eclectic group of photos. I can't imagine you with anything other than colourful pegs. It would be weird if they weren't.

Love seeing all your colorful and fun photos! I don't know how you got that 7 year old quilt all together--it's very cool--you need to finish it! I'm looking forward to seeing how your students do on their Whiz-Bang blocks.

Nice to have you back whenever you can get here. Frangipani flowers are so beautiful and so vibrant - they Instantly transport me to a tropical beach. Not weird, I like coloured pegs too. Hope all your classes are going swimmingly (which I'm sure they are!!). Hugs xx
