Quiet Hours

Today is June. My, hasn't it been a while since I posted. June brings in winter here in Australia and it's a good time for bringing out the slow cooker or the pot boiler and making up some hearty stews. Autumn has now finished and it left behind a mix bag of nice weather, rainy weather, and all sorts in between. Winter weather should be interesting.

The change of weather means it's a good time for quilts. I've discovered hand piecing and am enjoying making up patchwork blocks, sewing by hand. It's nice to take the craft along any where and I like the accuracy hand piecing gives. If you haven't tried hand piecing patchwork blocks give it a go, it's very rewarding.

Autumn days

Autumn is well and truly here. Many of the trees around are showing off their Autumn dress and the rains have come in. It's been a wet time of late and the best place to be is indoors if possible.

Still don't seem to have done much of anything and nothing is finished but I'll get there.
On the paper side of things I also did another junk journal too. I call her Miss Rose.

I used a lot of things from my stash and gave printing out paper a try. There are some very pretty printables to print and many can be found on pinterest if you like to try that your self. Just search printables. Printable paper. And such.

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