Latest Stitch Meditations

Some are postcard size & will end up as PC's, others are 5" square & fit into a Spotlight frame really nicely.   I keep getting asked "But what are you going to do with them?"  It seems that some need an end goal and don't quite get doing something just for the joy of it.

Charity Quilt


I was given the top to quilt, once I figured out how to quilt it (with help from a friend), it went easily & I think doesn't look too bad.

View from 1 William Street, Brisbane

My eldest is a rigger with rope access certification and loves hanging around really tall buildings.  This is the view of Brisbane CBD from the very top of our State Government Building, 1 William Street.  He reckons he was up around 250 meters & could see our house.  It would be in the middle of the picture.

Backyard at Mt Nebo

Visited the grandchildren and we had a couple of visitors there too. This was the smaller goanna.

Here he is again - the big one made its way to the chook pen but fortunately, couldn't get in.

King parrots visit too.


Nos. 27 & 28 of my Stitch Meditations

This morphed in to a landscape when I added the 2 greenish pieces on the sandy coloured fabric.  A tree & grasses completed the picture.

Add little scraps to the yellow background - then pondered on how to add some interest.  The stitching seemed to take over and achieve the interest I was looking for.

Japanese Garden

Another beautiful garden in Toowoomba - will go back when there are less people.  It was a bit too noisy for what I want from Japanese tranquility.

Food at Rudd's Pub - huge servings like most pubs.

A Blue wren came to visit - don't see them at our place.

Front yard of our accommodation -

Front door of one of the buildings in Nobby

In front of the General Store

Sister Kenny Museum - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Kenny - this will give you information on one of our famous women.

Steele Rudd - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steele_Rudd - another famous Australia - an author. The pub is worth a visit - steeped in local history and friendly locals.

A floral float that didn't get to go through the streets of Toowoomba

This park was full of floral displays - most annuals and looking beautiful.

Spring Bluff Railway Station

This little railway station always has a wonderful floral display during the Carnival of Flowers.

Poppies & railway tracks - the station is half way up the Great Dividing Range on the way to Toowoomba.

Appropriate mail box.

Camelias (I think!)

More meditation

Trying to go softer

Managed to use pastels for a softer look

Back to bold 

The bottom colour is actually a dark green - these little pieces are such fun.
