Photo challenge day 22 - STYLE

Image
Today's photography prompt word is style! What's your quilty style? 

It's always a hard question to answer! Mine is FPP, solids and near solids, bold color combinations... But I also love scrappy quilts! I'm a complex girl LOL


I'm still in Australia buying the house we'll retire to in about 2027.
This is the neighborhood park just around the corner that I'm sure will be a favorite quilt photography spot!



Plus it's only a 5 or 10 minute drive to the beach so that could be a fabulous quilt photography spot too!


Photo Challenge Day 21: Expression

Image
Quilters show so much of their personalities in their quilts. It's such a great expression of our creativity (or lack thereof lol sometimes).



I'm still holidaying in Western Australia 😍

Yesterday we saw thrombolites on Lake Clifton


And explored the tranquil easy side of the estuary near Mandurah South of Perth.


Time - photo challenge day 20

I'm still holidaying in Australia with my Mr Adventure and as much as possible, spending my time walking on the beach and exploring the wonderful coastline.



Photo Challenge - day 19 future

Photo Challenge word of the day is FUTURE!
 I've been gathering these red and yellow fabrics for a future project for quite some time, I love the beauty of this bundle 😍


And we are in the process of buying a house in Cooloongup Western Australia to retire to in about 10yrs. These photos are of the 4th bedroom and activity room, together they will be my sewing studio space 😍😍 I can't wait!

They are both light bright spaces, which will be fantastic! The activity room is bigger so it'll be my sewing space. The bedroom will be for storing fabric, batting, vintage sewing machines etc.


Sharing

Image
Share a photo on your blog or Instagram today that the word sharing inspires!

I'm still in Australia on holidays enjoying great coffee shops, beaches and family time with our adult Aussie sons 😍



And we bought a house in the Rockingham region to retire back to eventually! I'll share more photos of it once we've finally settled on the house and got the keys 😁

Photo Challenge - day 16 "your why"

Image
Why do you quilt?  I love that it allows me to, design, create, imagine, explore, believe, enjoy, discover!

I made this embroidery hoop wall decor two years ago for my sewing studio, to brighten up a not so colorful wall space, I still love them!
