September 23 2010 Quilting Newsletter


Good Morning all, the sun is shining through a thin layer of soft cloud and the garden is singing! Weíve had quite a bit of rain over the past few days, and as itís spring here, the new shoots are shooting, and the buds a blooming. Such a lovely time is spring here in Brisbane, Australia. But unfortunately spring doesnít last long and soon weíll be head first into humid and moist summery days, with afternoon thunderstorms blowing up from the southwest.

Iím still discovering my new garden. Itís funny when youíre looking at buying a house; you try to ďseeĒ everything. But, after the chaos of moving, I am now finding time to wander the garden and am discovering lovely flora (and fauna). The fauna comes as big huntsman spiders, gorgeous butterflies and geckos and eastern water dragons (lizards), and bush turkeys who love to distribute our garden over about a 500 foot circumference!! We also have a large bird community here.

My next door neighbours have kookaburras who visit regularly and Iíve noticed lots of different parrots soaring around the skies. As for the flora, I have discovered three magnolia trees, two different varieties and very pretty. Not a lot of scent, but beautiful to look at. Iíve also discovered the most delightful hibiscus that is just about ready to explode with color.

Weíre finally feeling settled and itís good to get back to the serious part of life Ė quilting!! Last Sunday I posted an article on finding the time to quilt and I encourage you to go over and have a read. Hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1332.asp

The forum has had some activity Ė pop over and have a look at whatís going on there. http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/629278/EZ3_Quilting_Frame#Post629278

Cheerio for now and remember, if you donít quilt, you wilt!!!
