Red

Despite the intense heat of recent weeks in Melbourne, my vege garden has actually been able to produce some edible treats:

In other 'red' news, my red silk quilt is all finished.


It's ultimate role is to be the 'chuppah' at the wedding of my beloved and me.

The hebrew writing around the 4 sides are taken from one of the traditional 7 blessings recited at Jewish weddings.

It means: Voices of joy and gladness, voices of groom and bride.

The centre is quilted with a tree of life design. A traditional Jewish symbol.

The kimono fabrics represent my beloved's love of martial arts.

And the red .... well I just love red.

And I also love my little red heads. Here's one!!

Hope you have had a great weekend.
