I love Autumn!

I know I'm a bit late to welcome Autumn but my favourite season is certainly here. I absolutely love this time of year. My girls get sick of me raving about how beautiful the trees are now, I never get sick of my countryside.
And they love it too. We all went for a long walk on Monday, 4 of us and baby Jemima in the pram. She loved it too, just to keep Nanny Jane happy!
Here are a couple pics of our surrounds. sigh... and my header pic. is the Japanese Maple from our bedroom window.
Haven't posted since our trip to the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne. This is our booth. It was small this year but I think we used our space really well. Lovely to see such lovely people and hi to all who mentioned reading my blogs. We had The Quilted Crow girls opposite us, so we weren't without fun and hilarity. (is that a word?)
Di (look out on the road for her!) and Leanne @ Homespun, the lovely Thread and Ginger girls, Natalie and Karen and not to forget meals and drinks with Di and Sandy from The Quilt Basket. There is always lots of people to bump into every year and it is certainly up there for reasons to attend.
At AQC we launched our 'Pieces of the Past' web sampler program. This is our finished quilt, below- 'Liberty Star'. The blocks have been designed by Michelle Yeo and 9 shops have a block kit for sale. You love our Quilt? You can then purchase our finishing kit to complete your quilt.(after collecting all the blocks). to find all the shops and more details.

Make the most of these glorious Autumnal days and make a trip to Woodside to appreciate it all.
cheers Jane ***
