We woke on Friday morning to the sound of rain on the roof, what a wonderful sound, those of you that live else where might find it hard that we here in the Australian inland get so excited about rain, but we have been in drought for 6 years so when it rains all day and then all of that night, it puts smiles on our faces. We were very lucky and have had over 2" in the past couple of days. Do hope you have had some where ever you may be.
I took this photo of one of my Claret Ash trees yesterday morning, the rain had helped it to loose it's leaves, they looked so nice sitting on the table and chairs that I just had to take a photo. I love this time of the year when all the leaves are turning, the mornings and evenings are cooling down. Winter won't be too far away.This weekend was one of only a hand full over the next 5 months that I didn't have a retreat on. I was still working in the shop but at a slower pace then usual. Last night while watching the footy on the TV, I sat on the lounge and cut out 64 - 6" basket blocks for a quilt I have had the pattern for nearly 10 years. I was using my new round cutting mat that was fantastic, it made the job so much easier. Here is a photo of the pile of blocks with a couple completed. I will keep you posted on my progress.
