Patchwork days

 My, it has been a while since I last posted. I took a little bloggy break as I did lose my blogging voice, if there is such a thing. But a 'holiday' is a good change. The weather has turned into Autumn now and the days are warm but cool. We've had sun and rain which brings in the Autumn. I've been at home and at mum and dad's pottering around. I attended the Simple Living Toowoomba sausage making workshop which was very informative. 

I've been doing a lot of sewing as well, at some point I hope to share the apple dishcloth crochet pattern, isn't it cute?

At home, here, I finally have some small cutting from dad's garden to start my garden. The cuttings have grown up, there's Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley, Mint and Basil. So far they are growing nicely in their pots. It's a small start but a start. Eventually I'll bring over some flowers too.

We are settling in at the new place and it has been interesting so far. My Aunt, who I live with, is a bear collector. She has all her bears out in her room and you can tell she's happy to see them all again.

And of course there is painting. Scribbles in a junk journal art book.

I hope you are all having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. We have a number of herbs growing here if you need any cuttings, Shiralee. I lost my 'blogging voice' too :-) It must be the weather!

  2. Ah ha! Nice to hear from you again. Creativity (writing) needs some time out occasionally - totally understand that.

  3. Wow I love the portrait you painted, and I would love to make that little apple dishcloth, although I don't think I could bring myself to use it as such, much too pretty. Take care, Guida
