Hello Bomers
Its well into November and that means this months block is OVERDUE!
Since last month we have been to the US and back, travelling there for our first Houston Quilt Festival. It went very well, our Eppiflex templates were well received by the US Quilters and there was great interest from the shops.
We had a post show wind down in San Francisco for 5 days - just enough time to really see the sights and walk around the city. 
One of the nicest things we did there was visit the Flower Conservatory in Golden Gate Park.
I have decided that when I grow up, I want a conservatory, not a garden. It was such a tranquil place, and just filled with amazing plants. Of course I'll have to work on my gardening skills a bit. 
Here are some pics from the Conservatory.

   

Ok enough with the holiday snaps - here are this months colour guide and number plan.
Novembers block is of course the Poppy. Here is the download
"The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance of the First World War. It is strongly linked with Armistice Day (11 November), but the poppy's origin as a popular symbol of remembrance lies in the landscapes of the First World War. Poppies were a common sight, especially on the Western Front"*
