Well I did it = one purple quilt in 2 1/2 days (really didn't do much the second day because I was busy running around getting stuff for my trip). I feel a little like the mad hatter...I'm late I'm late! Hurry! Hurry!
I've got to say this is the quickest I have knocked up a quilt and it shows. Not so much on the top of the quilt but more on the backing and binding. I didn't take the care I normally would to ensure that the material laid flat (despite tapping everything to the floor and pinning) But things move and I was not going to unpick anything on this quilt. That being said I still like it. I lurv triangles and I like the fresh pops of colour.
Well having thrown it together I was not going to let a photographic opportunity go by.I basically had this afternoon to take photos and when I headed off was originally planning on a trip to Aldinga Beach where I know some very lovely weathered pylons are waiting for me to photograph them. But as it was my petrol was low and the weather was probably a little rough so I followed the Onkaparinga road along the river and let it wind me along until I came to Old Noarlunga
I stopped at this location because of the roof.
I thought that I had found another abandoned old house that had a great roof for a photo shoot but as the Gods have it this old run down building is occupied.
mmmm....walk around the corner and spied the old shed quite alone and a beautiful old willow tree ....calling to me to take photos.
Doesn't this shed have great colour?
A pile of stones for me to trip over..hazards of the photographic adventurer
Willow tree, complete with be or wasp nest in the trunk of the tree..I didn't stay to find out which but I suspect wasp nest as the insects became quite aggressive when I came near.
Right next to the shed is a park with blue carp? I'm guessing that == they don't look like brim which you find also in the river behind
And just a few steps further the river Onkaparinga and beautiful old gums
Further down the river at the bridge and the back f the quilt made from a lovely vintage sheet in perfect condition - op shopped bargain - disgustingly cheap but lovely all the same
