the weather changed and we were straight back to winter! Cold wind, rain and even some hail
some fearless fishermen were out on the jetty in the rain and the wind!!

Sunday we had a storm pass over, very heavy rain and strong wind and then at the end this amazing rainbow! It lasted for quite a while.
The Aussie hero Quilt is done and in the post

my helper kept popping over the top of the quilt, makes it hard to take a photo!!
I did some baking today

paleo biscuits which tasted sensational, none left now!!

paleo banana loaf which tasted horrible...needs some serious help!!!

a few more stars have joined the family

the quilting is done on the doorway wall quilt, now to figure out how to do facings..

pieces are cut for three rows of the row by row quilt

and I have started to trace off the kookaburra for the next Aussie Hero quilt.
It has been very noisy here today, tree loppers have been next door all day, they arrived at 7.30 this morning and worked until 4pm. One big gum tree is gone but the machinery is still here.....I know they can drop branches and can be dangerous, but I feel for the galahs who have made their home there.
I had better go and rescue dinner, two hours is probably long enough to cook the spag bol sauce!
Happy sewing.

LOve the minion quilt. I just thought that hubby was a minion popping out . Some serious preparation going on there for projects. Hope you can improve on the banana loaf. I made one the other day, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and it was yummy. Made some little almond and ammarynth rock cakes today but substituted the amarynth with buckwheat and added agave nectar for the sweetening. They are quite nice to. I often fiddle around with these recipes. Have a lovely weekend.

Your door quilt is very interesting. I suppose there is a story behind it?
