Absolutely Beautiful Spring Weather .

Hello lovely blogging friends.
Perfect Spring weather here today, bringing the tulips out in time for the Tulip Festival in Bowral.
We visited here a few weeks ago .

THE ROYAL VISIT.         Queen Elizabeth on her first day enjoying perfect weather in Canberra our National Capital City to visit the annual flower show Floriade

A Project I have not long finished is my  Welcome sign.  It has been finished for a little while now when I think about it, just thought I would share as I was really pleased with it. Very country I think.

My Grandaughter Kristy (12yrs) has sewn some more 10" blocks for her quilt and has them on the design wall. Now waiting to do some cutting when she is back again at the end of the month for the cream sashings and borders. I may have to help a little with the cutting. She slides off at the end with the Rotary cutter sometimes . I think her hands being small it is hard to spread them on the ruler.  Though she is going really well manageing the sewing machine. This will be her 2nd Quilt. Kristy has chosen the music fabric herself and colours.

Nothing else to report at the moment . I have finished 1 Dear Jane block and 1 other that I have to fix the seam line  where I didn't sew straight and then 2 more are finished.
Goodnight everybody and sweet dreams.

Lovely Welcome wallhanging Jen and your granddaughter's quilt is coming along beautifully. I am glad to see there is some nice weather in other parts of the country as we have just had two of the wettest October days on record. Take care.

Lovely floral photographs Jen, and I just adore seeing the Queen's hats!!

Your little 'WELCOME' sign is gorgeous. I have some patterns with that same type of 'cow'. Must be the same designer.

Your grand daughter's quilt will be lovely, and the musical theme looks great.

Lovely to hear from you again.
