Winter and cosy Quilts.

Hello everyone,
Winter is here in Australia and it is an amazing time of year.  June ,July and August and along comes snow in some parts down south in Australia and our nights can be cold and in the mornings the fog rolls in and there is a slight nip in the air.
Australia's National flower emblem, the Golden Wattle trees come into flower displaying the National colours.
In the cold grey days what better time to quilt and knit  and let the winter evening close in . A journey of delights during those cold winter days.
I love to visit  the Blue Mountains in winter a World Heritage area (2 hours from us.) One million hectares of tall forests,sandstone cliffs,waterfalls and bush land. Can snow sometimes there. I look foreward for a few days soon to visit again.

I also love visiting the mountain villages dotted along the way to explore.

Wattle flower.
This week at sewing class there was a few quilt finishes showcased.

I must share the quilt that Sue made .She is so creative and talented .A beautiful quilt.

I think Sue's quilt is amazing!!
I also finished the quilt for my Grandaughter Shaylah 7yrs .I was very happy that she loved the quilt.

Shaylah snuggled in her quilt.

The snow fields in Australia are getting their snow now. Lets hope it is a busy season for that area.

Happy sewing everyone,
Stay Happy and Well,
