Sudden Change.


I guess it had to happen....a sudden change in the weather...from warm and balmy to colder squally showers with dashes of sunshine then more showers. You know what I mean.... put the washing out; take it in, put it out again till sense tells me to bring it in and forget it for today...... hang it in the laundry or iron it dry. Get on with some sewing - makes more sense. But wait...rush out and pick beans then the tomatoes...showers; so rush back in. I guess it's good exercise! I have got things done but in a very stop start sort of way.
When I saw the wind coming I went and rescued some of the lovely red Nerines that are telling me it is late Summer, and Autumn will soon be here. They look so bright in the blue vase on my work bench.
I suppose influenced by Joyce ( and all her chickens )and maybe Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston, I had a go at making a fun block to be part of a panel to go between blocks in my Quilt as You Go effort. First time I have tried anything like that. Somehow it has more personal appeal than perfectly matched points on block after block.Cute little chickens eh.

Gorgeous flowers! And those are some smart chickens, hiding out under the trees where it's nice and cool....

Love that block - don't know if the colour of the sky is true but it really sets off the trees (and chickens of course).

Yep, those chicks are real cute!

Be careful with this stuff. It is totally adictive. You may already be a junkie! I love your trees and the little chickens.

Love those chickens. Joyce is providing us with lots of entertaining ideas!
Love those Nerines too, how cheery, & of course the fern is so NZ!! sobs for 'home'.

We've had a couple of days where it was sunny, then rainy, then snowy, and then cloudy, then rainy again. I guess if you wait 10 minutes the weather will change.

The flowers are gorgeous, and your chickens look very cute in the trees. It's a neat surprise.
