chilly days

chilly days call for soup and homemade bread (thanks to another co workers partner0
seems our visitors are becoming very regular and a bit more demanding!

fresh limes off the tree, 

now to make something with them
two for one, on the same bush!
and this smells amazing

finished and gifted!

this is the big reveal
2 of my gorgeous co workers are due within a couple of weeks of each other,
so baby quilts from me..
the top quilt is for the family that doesn't know what they are having...keeping it a surprise
and the bottom quilt is for the family that are having a boy

these are probably slightly larger than cot size, but not quite lap size, but they will be able to enjoy them for quite a few years

time flies when you're quilting!

well the quilting is done on one...
rainbow one morning when I opened the curtains
went out for dinner and this is the dessert that Diva ordered! sugar hit plus!

my zygos are gorgeous this year

although this one isn't the colour stated on the tag...going to move it to a shadier place for next year and see if that makes a difference

its been a month!

wow...sorry didn't realise I hadn't posted for a month...
where did that time go?
well I have been busy in the sewing department...
2 baby quilts on the go for surprises, lucky they don't read this blog!
the garden has turned on a last minute Autumn show, 
with beautiful colours and plants flowering with amazing blooms
and a birthday celebration

these are a few of the blocks

pretty flowers on the zygos
new plant in the bathroom
got this glass pot for Christmas and finally potted it up
some of the garden

the outside lights needed a touch up...

took me longer to do the masking than the painting

they look great cost $30 approximately (6 new lights would of cost a lot more!)
beautiful morning walks
Autumn colours

treated myself to lunch one day
new coral coloured zygo from the monthly market the pot for Christmas from a friend, found this super cute succulent for it!
more progress
a thank you from Diva
last blooms from the garden 

Diva turned 26 (where did that time go to?)
