enjoying the weather..........

The weather for the last week has been beautiful.........well if it can't rain at least it has cooled down..............the last week has been a max of 27deg C...........have to go back to October last year for weather like this..........so much nicer then the 30+ temps......need more rain though......nights between 10-14degC.......

The final post about Girls Day in the Country......already booked in for 2014 with Lynette Anderson.........if you are thinking of going it's pretty much booked out you need to contact Kerry ASAP to get on the waiting list..........the 2 main shopping items...........
Some Riley Blake goodness............
The thing to remember with Riley Blake is the layer cakes/charm packs don't have 42 pieces like the Moda ones do..........you need to check what you are choosing.....most have 18 or 24 I think.........
The Sweetest Thing by Zoe Pearn.............

Then I got a pair of scissors that are designed for snipping shaggy quilts.......Mr Chooky has snipped the last couple and I have another one coming up so he can snip that one too.........with HIS NEW SCIZZORS........
Birch Rag Quilt Scissors
And a random picture of my canisters in the chookshed.............don't think I have shown you.......
Still stuff to catch up emails/blogs etc......i'm in a bit of a switched off mode......things are/have been busy......
And struggling with the end of daylight savings..........I am so sick of fighting with kids to get them out of bed of a morning in the dark.............and struggling to get out myself...........
Oh next week is going to be SOOOOO nice..........6pm sunset......heaven...........
I love autumn......especially when it feels like it...........
Catch you later..............

  4. I'm with you on the weather - even getting pleasant in Brisbane - mostly - still hate that we don't have daylight saving - but it does go on a bit too long. Love the canisters.
