When in doubt draw some leaves!

 I havent been sketching much as I have been mostly on my sewing machine.
J is watching question time in parliament, why he would want to do so is beyond me, also beyond me is why we have the  PM that we have.
It has been hot, then cold then we have had thunderstorms which have terrified Max. A small amount of rain, the paddocks with summer crops in them are looking pretty parchedd, the weather burea keeps on promising rain but it never seems to come.
I dont really want floods either though, seeing areas of the UK inundated look very depressing.
I am busy trying to get a lot of odd sewing done with Christmas getting closer and not a lot of money to spend my family will probably get stuff they dont want and have no idea what to do with!
Next week I get on with making fruit cakes for them all.
At this time of the year our gum trees start to shed their leaves, late spring here in Australia, but I see dozens of lovely red and bronze leaves on the ground as I walk and I just have a bit of a thing about sketching them. Somehow they are so satisfying.
Back to the sewing machine.

Can't see the pic, Penny, but I bet it's a stunner.

Sorry, pic wouldn't come up. We had that storm too, great sheets of lightning. Our son had to drive to Lorne from Geelong and there were large rocks on the rock, he said, from some slides. A bit scary for me when he told me as I always imagine the worst.

I make cakes for all my family too Penny - I have done it for so many years that they now expect one.
