Winter arrived on 1st June down here in New Zealand. We were told by the weather experts that June would be a lot colder than the balmy days of May which we had been enjoying. It’s time to change a couple of wall hangings in honour of the new season. First up is Welcome Winter, hanging just inside the main door. We don’t have snow on the ground where we live, although the Tararua Ranges behind us often have a dusting of snow on the tops during winter.

Hanging on the wall is my International Maple quilt, made from a block swap from around the world, and replacing my Autumn toned quilt. I know that golden maples mean Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, but I’m using this as a Winter quilt because of the black background.
And lastly, I changed the small wall hanging in the sewing room, replacing my High Tech Tucks (made goodness knows how many years ago), with Winter Quilt Festival. This was a printed panel and I hand quilted around the design.

So that’s my little salute to the change in season. Hope you are all keeping cozy, or cool, wherever you live.
