Some changes . . .

I changed a couple of block as I just wasn't convinced. I think it looks better - oh and I fiddled with the directions. I think I have changed the directions back again to make the red squares all going down in a row. It's amazing how it changes the look by just moving the direction of blocks.
So many OS bloggers are saying how Spring is on it's way, but over here in Australia, we are getting the first hints of Autumn. I love Autumn.
My little Pete has started a new patch in my garden for his vegies. It's right at the back door and we had fun rearranging plants to make space.
oh, and we went to the Library on Saturday morning and got a book called Luscious Lemon Desserts. We made the Perfect Lemon Tart. We're going to try it tomorrow night.
I can't wait!

Oh, um! Anything with lemons, the sourer the better for me and dessert!

If it has a lemon drizzle recipe I highly recommend making it.

Loving the new layout even betterer.

As always your quilts are wonderful and love the colors.
The photo of the fall leaves would make a great quilt.

Ohh not sure what I like best - the quilt, Pete's garden or the dessert. No wait - has to be Pete's garden. Tell him if he ever wants a job gardening I'll give him a bed...vbg.

What a 'feel good' kind of quilt, love all the colors! Think I should look for that lemon cookbook - I love any 'lemony' desserts and that lemon tart looks delicious.

I love the colors in your quilt, and the colors in your garden. I love autumn too. And although I am OS (does that mean "OverSeas" or "Opposite hemiSphere" or "Off-Seasons"?), Spring doesn't seem to be in the offing where I am. We just keep getting snow and more snow....
I could be cheered up a sunny Lemon Tart, though, thanks for the inspiration!

Glad you found the way back to new sewing projects ;-) !! Your new quilt looks so joyful and full of life. I like it. And I am fond of lemon tarte too. It's a pity I cannot taste it :-) !!
Greetings from Switzerland where Spring soon starts!
