that spring is really here when my native mint bush (Prostanthera - native mint bush) starts flowering. It has been a joy to have this growing in our garden, it doesn't require much care beyond pruning back once a year and a little extra water on the really hot days.
The daffodils seem to have their own timetable and bloomed a few weeks ago which was when the photo was taken, they are looking a bit bedraggled now. Other spring bulbs are starting to pop up as well, I spotted a couple of freesias and some hyacinths this morning.
I finished quilting my Anna Maria Horner workshop piece in February and decided to enter it in our guild quilt show which was held in July, I was over the moon to get a red ribbon for it :)
I really enjoyed quilting this piece, there was no real plan to the quilting, it was just "quilt as desired", I loved how the feathers around the leaves turned out.
The majority of the applique was machine appliqued and although I enjoy hand applique it has become apparent that my hands do not enjoy it quite as much so I think my machine applique skills will continue to increase.
