Oh joy some nice weather

I made a quilt for Lucas just before we went away so as the weather was quite nice this morning I finally got to take some photos of it.
I should be hung the other way but there were bees in that Wisteria.

The label.
Lucas' room is across from my sewing room and when he goes to bed and I am sewing he always pops in to say good night.
I seem to make a lot of bags and when he asks me what I am making he always says
"It's not another bag is it?"
hence the label.

Finally some nice weather and after some great winter rain things are blooming.

This white iris has been covered in flower sadly they don't last long.

I love this shade of purple.

I think the rain has been good for the Bluebells I haven't had any in the garden for a few years.

Fantabulous quilt Leanne! Love the story about the bags!

Those flower pictures... so wonderful. Though it’s October we still have 20oC and more. It has been very wet in August and September so lots of fungusses in my little city garden.

Happy week!

Love your photos! Every thing is growing like crazy everywhere. It's all so pretty. I conceded tonight at the dinner table that the last of the lovely weather was gone (you know me and winter!) and I thought of you and thought you must be enjoying the weather now! Between the two of us there's never a day that isn't appreciated!
