Blues and mauves...
It's done!!!

The stitching is done!

There once was a girl from Ferny Creek

Who stitched and stitched and stitched all week

Then when at last her work was done

She thought it was time for a little fun

(So she did a blog entry and had a glass of Chardonnay!)


She also went a for a walk to get a nice big breath of fresh Spring air!


Oh dear, can you tell I'm a little bit tired!? I have FINALLY finished stitching all the 'Butterfly Garden' blocks and so now the quilt is in nine blocks! It was just too dark by the time I finished sewing to get the right light for the photos, so that will be a job for tommorow.    

It was however lovely light for a quick walk before dinner and so I thought I'd share a few photos of a local street with you that I often go for walks down.


I love a Spring evening:


Whether it's Spring or Autumn (Fall) where you are I hope you had a lovely evening light like this.

Hi Leanne

I too am a lurker, brought out into the light by this most beautiful quilt - OK, and the Chardy!

I hope that us Aussie gals will have the pleasure of stitching this quilt sometime soon - can't wait.

I have not long ago finished your Quilter's Journey so am itching to get something else started before it gets too humid.

Have fun in Norway,
can't wait to see the finished quilt.

You did so much work ! Congratulations !
It is autumn here and yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. My husband and I walked through the wood and we enjoyed all the different colours and all the mushrooms.
By the way, I finished the seventh row of the 365 Challenge quilt.


Hi Leanne,

You truly are blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the country. Everything looks so lush and green.

Can't wait to see your photos of the finished blocks. I am sure this quilt will be just as pretty as all your others.
