I have shown plenty of close ups of the quilting on this quilt, when I first quilted it. (for more pictures click here). It was a while ago, and I have finally finished the binding.
A blog that I follow regularly is Kathy’s – TamarackShack. Kathy lives in Canada beside a lake. One of the things I like about Kathy’s blog (besides the beautiful quilts), is that she takes stunning photos of the quilts outdoors, showcasing the quilt’s beauty along with the beauty of nature.
I live in Melbourne, and I don’t live in such beautiful surrounds. My house is on a smallish block of land, on a quiet suburban street with lots of houses all around me. But inspired by Kathy I decided to take a photo of Autumn Flowers a little differently than my usual “flat on the floor” pictures.
As it was raining, I couldn’t go outside. I took this photo looking out of my front window. You can see my elm tree, a small part of my magnolia tree, the street and the house across the road.
Melbourne weather has become very cold over the last couple of weeks even though it is still autumn. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago walking through the Carlton gardens next to the Exhibition Building.
