Wintry Rain
It's raining ''again'' but I/we are not complaining as this is the first year in nine years... yes ''nine years'' that we have had winter rain... there are puddles and mud but who cares... all that is missing is three little kids to play in it... D1 D2 S1 where are you there is puddles for you... mmmm maybe Mum will have to play.................................

300 Little Baskets??
Yes that is right ''300'' to make this quilt. I have joined my friend Beatrice and her friend Nat at we are each going to make this wonderful quilt. The blocks are 51/2 inches and the baskets are appliqued... The plan is to do 5 baskets a week which I will endeavour to do.
The quilt looks fantastic on this bed and I love the colours used... I am using a ''silver sage green'' for my background and I am thinking of red, orange, yellow and maybe a touch of blue for the baskets... I will see once my fabric arrives.
This is the book needed for the ''basket challenge''... It has many more fantastic applique patterns in it for some great quilts... Go check out Nat's blog.

Group Birthday Goodies
My goodies that I received from my friends around the globe... jelly rolls, fat 1/4's, buttons and I just love the little scissors.
And from my other group of friends from around Australia ''green charms'' with some of my favourite colour ''lime''

Is Spring Early?
Some beautiful flowers from around my garden... it has been so cold you wouldn't think that there would be flowers yet... but with the rain and the sunshine this past few days I think the garden is enjoying a ''rain drink''.

And what about this petunia... looks like pure velvet for real... such a beautiful colour.

One Foggy Morning
We woke up to a very heavy fog the other morning... I took Hubby out the bush to his tractor at 7.30am, he is clearing roads after the flooding we had in January, and we had fog all the way to the south end... it hung around until 9.30am and cleared only to reveal a very overcast day..... But today has been wonderful sunshine a great day for washing and getting it dried.

A Teddy Bear's Picnic
Look what I found in the "Australian Quilters Companion No37" magazine.... so sweet... so yes I just had to start it and yes I do have someone in to give it to. A friend is due to have a baby in September... Spring time just the right time to have a ''teddy bears picnic"... Now to get to my machine and get busy appliqueing the pictures.
