  3. Oh wow, you already have your borders on, that's a good idea, gives you a bit more to hold on to when you stitch.

  4. I think Tassie has skipped Autumn and we've gone straight into winter, it's a bit chilly here today. Great start on your Tis the Season! I'm a bit naughty and have made a start too, just couldn't help myself!

  11. We have had a really cool summer - only about 3 - 4 days warm enough to go swimming outside!

    Send some down this way so my tomatoes and fruits can ripen!

  12. The block looks great, nice vibrant borders. If you want summer I'm happy to send you a few degrees here from Perth. Three weeks of humid mid to high 30s with a 40 here & there is no fun. We had another freak storm yesterday too. About 8 suburbs had a mini tornado, masses of destruction, winds & rain while all the rest of us saw a few clouds but not a drop of rain - freaky weather! At least cold is great sewing weather. Sweaty & sewing don't mix too well - lol. Tracee xx
