I'm Loving Monday 'Cos....


....the new blade on my rotary cutter is gliding through the fabric as though it were butter

...i'm hearing the hum of my sewing machine again

...i'm looking at the bountiful boughs of jacaranda blooms outside the window

...twentysomething mr p did the vacuuming voluntarily this morning with not even
a whisper from me!

...the breeze is cool and the smell of rain is fresh and invigorating

...the dogs are settled, the humans too, it's a peaceful monday.

some days it just feels good to be alive!

naturally Carol xox thoughts go out to our aussie soldiers and their families today....


  1. Hi Carol.... how opposite weather you have with all of us... all are starting with winter and snow and you have pleasant sunny days ... Its really makes me surprised that how God made the things so amazingly...
    Happy if you come to see me at
    with love from

  2. What a great start to the day Carol :) Was looking good at my place this morning until a temporarily-in-disgrace Labrador found her way into the kitchen rubbish tidy....

  3. I love Jacaranda trees when they are in flower too!

  4. Oh Carol, how I miss my Sydney jacaranda! It's too cool down here, I think - I must investigate if we can grow one at PB HQ ☺. J x

  5. I looooove a new rotary cutting blade!

  6. Love anything made from selvedges. Hearts and Jacarandas - just beautiful. x

  8. Love your heart today, Carol. I love making selvedge hearts too, each one is different! Have a very happy week.

  9. Each of these things would certainly put a spring in my step and a smile on my face :)

  10. Oh I love that little fabric heart Carol, it's gorgeous. It looks sweet smelling too, like it might be filled with some kind of pot pourri, or maybe I'm just hoping it is ;o)
    The jacaranda is also very beautiful, I'm a big fan of those trees and the purple carpet of petals they create xo

  11. That sounds like the perfect day. The heart is so cute and the blossom is just beautiful.

  12. Such a beautiful post, Carol! Love your photos!
