Toowoomba private garden exhibition.

 Lots of colour around Toowoomba, the Garden City of Queensland.  These pictures were taken at the 2011 Winners garden.  Set on a slightly  hilly allotment spread out over 2 acres with beautiful gardens. So many different garden rooms. Absolutely stunning.   I so enjoy colour in the garden........none in mine this year. Am exhausted at  looking at such beauty.

This little guy was an experiment with a transfer pen.  Photo copied the imagine from a child's colouring book, from years gone by.   Was not happy with the way he came out.  The pen nib is to thick, would have been much better to trace an imagine on light box.  He will not be wasted though, l am going to turn him into a Library book bag, for a niece staring Kinda next year.  I am sure she is going to love him.  Might even colour him in with pencil and set the colour.

Flower coin purses.

Remember these little beauties, have been busy making more for the Toowoomba Quilters Sale table.  They look like flowers and very suitable for the quilt show which is held in the same week as the carnival of flowers. One of the most popular flower show in Australia. So come along to the Toowoomba Carnival of flowers and visit with the Toowoomba Quilters Quilt Show from 17-23 September. The whole town will be a buzz with activities.

Sewing Space.

Well here is my new sewing space. Full of boxes and plastic tubs. Will not have new sewing room until we renovate, hopefully early in 2012.  So for now l will have to manage the best way possible.  This space is the meals area of the house which we do not use, because it has been full of boxes for the last 10 months.  Now that we have purchased, l have been slowly unpacking and resorting our worldly goods.  Have given a lot away to the op shops.  I am sure someone else will find a better use for them. Looking forward to a larger more organize space.
