Weekending









  • Signs of Autumn - fungi,  autumn leaves and seed pods.
  • Feijoas galore - my two trees have given us their first two fruit.  Luckily, friends have given us lots more.
  • A fabulous reading pile - just a slight theme happening.  I've started the odd one out, The Three Miss Allens, which is set in modern day Australia, with flashbacks to the past.
  • More sewing on the medallion quilt: fussy cut corner stones  - I like how they echo the centre block pattern, and I repeated the first border, which seems to have toned down the rainbow squares, so I am feeling much happier about this quilt in progress now.  I think this will be a big quilt, it is currently measuring 48" square.
  • New plantings - in the vege garden there is beetroot, perpetual spinach and I'm trying some lettuce for winter.  In the flower garden, (with help from Meeka),  the Iceland poppy plants and sweet pea seeds have gone in too.  Looking forward to being able to pick lots of flowers.
Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend too.

Edited: the red star shaped fungi is a  stink horn fungus

  1. Hi Julie, That all looks good except the red fungi. If it is in your garden get rid of it. One year my friends got it in a load of bark chips and it spread everywhere and stinks when it rots down. It's really invasive.
