Adventure continues.............

So when I landed I was whisked away from the airport to Miss Fiona's@ Bubz Rugz.............
She is just fabulous and we had a great time together..........
I enjoyed some great long walks in her area and found some lovely things to photograph along the way............
the plant above looked like 3 plants next to each other and thick and only short..........but great colours and look in the garden...........
gorgeous frangipanis flowering everywhere.......different colours too..............I stole a few from Fiona's garden actually Mr Bubz Rugz garden...........
Grevilleas...........
Spider lily? very delicate and pretty none the less..............
Even found some old cattle yards in my walk........old timber joins...........they don't make them like this any more............
I ended up walking 6kms around the suburbs...........felt a bit too flash walking on paths even............
 After all that walking I relaxed with some hand stitching and then moved onto my Churn Dash quilt..............I stole Fiona's design wall............
thanks for the loan of a machine Fiona............I had all but one seam left to join when I went out for the evening............
 Yep I gate crashed Friday night stitching..............
Kris @ Tag-along Teddies was there so great to catch up with her also...........I did some hand stitching and also pinned the last seam on the quilt.............
Straight after sewing I came home to Fiona's and joined the final seam and my churn dash is now finished..............OMG it is bigger then I thought............this is a queen bed I laid it out on.........I only added an extra row to one side and the bottom........
Oh well as I say bigger is better..........
Found these gorgeous gluten free cup cakes on a fete stall that I worked on while away too..............OMG they were amazing............
I wished I had pics of the others there........it was so pretty..........
After all that fun I had to pack up and leave the beautiful green Toowoomba and head home to a dry brown farm.............
Catch you later.............

  1. Love your churn dash quilt, and those burgundy triangles just set it off beautifully. Your adventures sounds like fun, and yes the country is very brown here too, just waiting for the green. Those timber joins have stood the test of time very well.

  12. Your churn dash quilt looks great, I think it is the perfect size...unless you are going to quilt it yourself on the domestic machine, then it looks like a monster! LOL!
