A few photos of my garden this week, the weather has been superb, we finally have proper summer weather and now it's autumn :), warm not too hot, lots of sunshine, and it's not too humid either, it's just perfect!

The next door neighbours in their wisdom have decided it's great to have a rooster. I don't think many people in the street are too happy about being woken up at 4am.
It's a very nice looking rooster, but I would prefer he and his harem stayed next door.
On Sunday we drove down to Brisbane for the day. We always buy these when we are there.
I bought some new shoes too.
I did buy a pair of these not just one, (they only had a photo of one shoe on the online store.) I could have taken photos of my shoes but I'm feeling lazy so a photo of one shoe will just have to do.
My Pfaff is in having brain surgery, apparently the "thingamy jig" is basically stuffed and needs to be replaced. It's the bit that works out how to do all the stitches, what size, shape etc, so now I have to wait for the part to be sent from overseas as apparently the people at Pfaff think it's a waste of money to have spare parts sitting in Australia. I'm so glad I have my little Janome Jem as I can still sew and quilt, although I can't tackle quilting anything large (not that I was going to anyway, lol).
I checked with the Janome store and they have suggested I should be able to quilt up to a single bed quilt, I really don't think so but I should be able to quilt Strawberries and Champagne on it, so now I had better get started on making the backing.

and neither is this one!
