In my Garden.....

Every Autumn I get these.....

Don Burke describes them like this.....

"For dramatic autumn colour, tree dahlias are hard to beat. They are giant plants with huge leaves and stems, and shaggy, lavender flowers resembling ballerinas' tutus. It's not only the appearance of the tree dahlia which causes drama in the garden - so do the very brittle stems. One minute you can be proudly showing your tree dahlia off to the neighbours, then before you know it, a sudden gust of wind has blown the whole plant over! "

All I know is I love them......

I have been Shopping.......

....another bitter sweet experience. One of my Local Patchwork Shops is closing, so there is a big closing down is always exciting to get a bargain but the thought of the shop not being there is just so sad. This shop has been open for around 30 years, initially as a general craft store, providing supplies for macrame, embroidery, tapestry etc. Over time it morphed into a patchwork store with a reputed 5000 bolts. Here is part of my haul. Here is my 25 FQ's from Robyn Pandolph's Somerset Cottage Range!! The 3 packs should have cost $140 but at 40% off I got them for $84 making them $3.36each!!! I am pretty happy with that. I got some meterage too which was really much better value at $10 a meter. I also bought some things that I needed ie backings for quilts all ready in the works. But that being just a little too practical the splurge on the lovely soft Pandolph's was a must!!

PS I know it has been a long time since I posted, I have pictures of the quilts I completed at camp. I got ALMOST 3 bound!!!
