Autumn / Winter


So far we have had a bit of winter weather in autumn and a bit of autumn weather in winter.  It is all a bit topsy turvey  around here and one never knows what to dress in for the day.


Grandad raked the leaves and Lilian had fun helping him.

This type of weather makes us think about food all the time.  Well, it does me anyway.  What better for dinner than a hot steaming beef casserole.  Oooh it was yummy.


The other pastime I am really enjoying most evenings is hand quilting.  My ‘Leaf Flowers’ quilt is coming along nicely and all being well I should have it completed for the Toowoomba Quilter’s  exhibition in September.

The quilting and the food all look delish

Hello DI, Your hand quilting is lovely. Your beef stew also looks very very yummie. My favorite in the Winter.

Your grand daughter looks like she is having so much fun in the leaves.
Happy Winter. Hugs Judy

Di, your leaf flower quilt is looking very nice!
How brave of you to post the before pics of your sewing room! Although i like organization, too, my art space is usually organized confusion!( or is it that I'm just too busy/ lazy/unfocused to put stuff away?)

Hello again Dianne. What a lovely photo, gorgeous child, so angelic sitting amidst the leaves. Your quilting is looking really lovely, and of course who can resist a hearty beef casserole at this time of the year. We are having lasagne tonight, fire going at the moment, sick of these 'bleak' days. Take care.

The lovely lily adores her grandad because he does all sorts of good things with her. She will always remember this.

Your quilt is beautiful as they always are,and is coming along wonderfully.

Your stew looks yummy but you are a good cook so it should be.

Oh Di,

How adorable little Lilian looks in the stack of leaves! I can see she enjoys her time with her Grandfather.
Love the quilt. It is looking lovely!
