Spring is in the air. The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer and the blossom trees are flowering. This is our plum tree.
I had a lovely afternoon yesterday. We shared a "yum cha" lunch, then went fabric shopping. No quilting shops on the list this time; they were all dressmaking fabric shops. I found this lovely piece of silk chiffon. I haven't decided whether to make a dress or a floaty skirt from it. The shop I bought this fabric from is so crowded with treasures you can hardly walk all the way around. Every time we visit there is something different to see. They often have the ends of rolls of fabrics used by local designers who still have their clothes sewn here.
I have spent a few hours today preparing more Morrell Quilt blocks, so for the next post I will have something much more "quilty" to see.
These are Australian native plants. Their common name is Dwarf Emu Bush. I have both the red and pink forms in my garden. The red flowering plant always has many more blooms.
