Today my new flower block is a rhododendron. The bushes are so pretty when they are in full flower. Clusters of trumpet shaped flowers are displayed on a shelf of leaves it would seem.

Stitch Along September

September is fast approaching, in fact the 1st is Sunday so we need to be ready for our September challenge. September the 1st is noted as being the first day of Spring in New Zealand, although snow is forecast for today! Oh well, that's a good reason to begin thinking about our Stitch Along Sunday. No reason why you cannot plan it now and post the result on Sunday.

Autumn Jigsaw

Going from one season to another. It is almost spring in the southern hemisphere, just a week out which means fall is getting close in the northern hemisphere so I decided to pick a fall quilt and make it as a jigsaw puzzle.

Friday Flower Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise is a unique, colorful and beautiful flower. It is one of those flowers that you either love or just don't like. I love the brightness of it and how it is so different to every other flower.
