Marching on












Fabric delights and garden highlights. March has been an unusually warm yet wonderful autumn month. Our pool is still very pleasant for swimming. The garden is filled with colours of many flowers, butterflies, birds, bees and caterpillars - a delight indeed.

Cricket season has finished on a high with two grand final wins and an unexpected double/split sportsmanship award - photographed with the wonderful couple who lovingly support and serve our cricket club. Hockey is now underway.

Our local homeschool families have recently enjoyed a series of science workshops with over 40 students participating, split into two age groups. Last week's activities for the younger children focussed on magnets.

I'm thoroughly enjoying working with Sarah Watson's Biology fabric collection, while Geninne's Moody Blues are enticing me too. Both are organic fabric collections from Cloud 9, and two of my very best favourite collections ever! I want to rush in and create whilst also desiring to savour their beauty. Time restraints mean more savouring than creating at this point, however with a two week school break about to begin I'm hoping find the perfect mix of both.

Those fabrics are particularly beautiful. It's great you home school group numbers around 40, what a good number of students to have different input and views to learn from. Congratulation to those cricket grand final winners, what a great way to finish the season.

Love these fabrics, and also some info on how your home schooling is managed. Our new little granddaughter might be my first experience with home schooling. something that we are considering for her... although this is a few years in the future.... You are such an amazing example of this.
