The HEARTATHON was a great success with Kate's linkup and I wish to thank her very much & to two other lovely ladies who joined in. I have one last offering as I'll be turning this calendar over tomorrow.
Now, I have made a decision on the quilt drawing I showed and here it is. A small quilt which I will now quilt in an allover pattern. It was made to finish off the jelly roll I used to make the larger one with white background. Both shown below. These 2 quilts have been named after 2 of my grand daughters, but I'm unable to use their names on my blog. I've another quilt designed for my eldest GD & hope to make a start on that amongst clearing up some UFO's which I'm supposed to doing a list for & blogging about with my friend Joy. She has a page dedicated to Cutting our UFOs in half for 2017. I'm joining in too, at some stage.
Reading this month has been very enjoyable. Our local library requested the purchase of 2 books I'd been after and I've already read this one, which I can recommend.

We did have a lovely day though with a walk along the beach at Inverloch after downing a cuppa from our thermos & stopping by the jetty to see if any stingrays were in. We were rewarded with sighting two. A small one and a whopper!
Whilst in Wonthaggi, I spotted these little cuties in an OP SHOP & I parted with a "mighty" $2 and came home with them.

The tiny pot because it was so cute & wee.

I wonder why I bought this piece of fabric?
I don't even remember buying it.
Was I planning something for it?
It is pretty though.
It is the start of Autumn tomorrow (Spring in the northern hemisphere) and some trees, I've noticed are already starting to change colour.
It was warm here today (36 deg), with another few hot one to comes, so not quite autumn temperatures yet.
Take care all.
