There’s nothing nicer than a little slow hand stitching, is there? I’ve been working away on my final New Zealand Botanical block, sitting outside and making the most of the warm temperatures. The circlet and leaves are now done, with just the fuchsias to be added. I’ve also been “sewing in the ends” after machine quilting on my Animal ABC quilt, another restful job to do while seated outside. With a drink to hand, and a quilt magazine to flick through when I want a break, the birds chirping, it’s very pleasant indeed.

The calendar has just clicked around to Autumn in my part of the world, (Fall to USA readers). So down came my New Zealand Native Bird wall-hanging above the sofa, and up went my Autumn toned Baskets of Blessings.

It may be early Autumn, but our weather is March is usually warm and settled - although we are noticing that the overnight temperatures are now a little cooler. It’s a lovely day today, and Gemma is enjoying the sun shine streaming in the windows. Here she is stretched right out on the carpet, legs akimbo, making the most of the warm weather. She is certainly a contented kitty.
