60 degrees of fun.........

wow so where do I start..............firstly last night when i went to bed we had 2mls of rain............this morning  23mls..........and a funny day today with sun one minute and a misty shower the next..........1ml of rain....a lovely day........
I was pretty miserable when I did my last post and with a serious change in the weather during the month and a few small showers - not enough to do much but with this on top will get something growing.........lets hope the next fall is very close............the weather change hadn't brought much rain but atleast the same weather patterns that had been coming thru with NO rain had changed.......and I am loving the cooler weather..........summer seemed to go on for ever...........
thanks for your emails/comments taking my break.......even the lurker in SE Qld who emailed me (hi)........thanks your caring is appreciated.....getting me back here......
%%%
I got a good injection of fun and friendship last weekend and again this weekend so i'm feeling pretty good...............more on last weekend next post...........
But last weekend the Googy Girl and I started this quilt......i've had a 60deg ruler for a little while and wanting to make something...........so last weekend I cut into some Denyse Schmidt Spotlight range
this I think should all be from "Picnic and Fairground"........
as we started to play we were busting to put blocks up onto the design wall.........
pinwheels......
hexagons.....
when Googy Girl left some rows were joined........
today I got the rest of it together.........
ta da........ "60 deg's of fun"
hope you like it Googy Girl and thanks for the fun..........
love these fabrics........
more soon........
Catch you later..............
