October is here and in my part of the world the heat has arrived too.
The past few days Mr E and I have spent time in the garden of our new home making plans, weeding, watering, removing dead plants, re-potting a few lovelies we brought with us and planting a couple of new purchases. There's much to do and summer is hot on our heels here in the tropics so we're prioritising what must be done soon and the rest can be done bit by bit.
This month's stitchery from "A Year in the Garden" was inspired by a trip hubby and I made to Yungaburra about 5 years ago. There was a beautiful display of old car tyres painted white and hanging on the side of a building with colourful plants inside and I thought at the time that one day I'd create a similar scene in our 'hoped for' home.
Here's a photo I took at the time...
I must show these photos to Mr E to jog his memory...I have a wall where these would be gorgeous, or perhaps around the pool with flowering cacti?
One day. No rush.
Anyhow, you can see my inspiration, yes?
The October pattern is free until the 31st so head over HERE to my shop and download it before then.
Not long now and you'll have the entire set of "A Year in the Garden" patterns and can sew them all into a quilt top. If you've missed any of this year's previous blocks they are all in my shop as a $2 purchase.
Are you enjoying this BOM so far?
Now on to something different - Christmas!
My new patterns for the October issue of The Stitchery Club are brimming with soft and shabby stocking goodness...

Righto, that's me for today. Afraid exhaustion from the move and all it involved these past two weeks has caught up with me and a migraine is knocking behind my left eye...so enjoy the October block and may it bring you pleasure to stitch.
Next blog post I'll show you around my sewing room...
