I love this time of the year, the crunch of the leaves as I walk outside, the last minute blooms and fading garden as the season changes.
The autumn harvest and associated gluttony, apple cakes, filling the freezer —
[Are those bananas you spy in my pile of garden produce?]
[Yes, they are...check out our banana palms this year. After a truly sub-tropical summer we have bananas galore - the best ever. I counted 9 bunches yesterday!!]
Late summer is the time for firewood too, a good excuse for some family time —
In amongst it all, a bit of time for sewing.
Eeyore has his first borders.
And some more pattern testing for Juliet of Tartankiwi. A fairy wren for her On the Wire pattern club
If you think those legs look tiny in this 6" block - they are! But the beauty of foundation piecing is that you can achieve legs like this relatively simply.
Sewing at YD's hemming her curtains —
Ahh the joy of a SewEzi table; moving my machine from window to window so we didn't have to take the curtains down!
I've also done a little more crochet in the evenings, - not sure where I'm going with this small blanket - the design is definitely a wait and see one!
I hope to be back soon to share more action...until then,
