I went to Philip Island for a stitching weekend a couple of weeks ago (been doing a lot of that lately!! :-) What fun. We went for a gorgeous evening walk along the beach, to walk off dinner, this fantastic ramp was built with donations from many clubs,businesses and families, so that there is easy beach access for everyone.
Found this interesting fence and house on the walk too
Goodness me its been a very, VERY long time since I posted something other than a fence. Mind you, I do have a lot of fun looking out for them. I'll try not to bore you with too much.
In May we added 2 new members to our family.......Kitty cats, Introducing Flint (tabby) and Luna (tortoise shell) Flint is a month older. Very social and they love mischief, especially Flint.
Flint loves balls made from aluminium foil, as soon as he hears me in the kitchen with it, he's at my feet waiting for a little bit to turn into a ball. He steals my thread and pulls the pins out from my pincushion!! Apparently he's helping....
Here we all are looking for things they've lost under the couch.......
quite a treasure stash our kitty cats have!!
One of my sewing groups had a quilt show a few months back, it was a huge success. Lots of organising and things to finish,
but we raised lots of $$ for our local fire brigade which was fantastic.
This last weekend we had our second Stitched in Time day. Its a day where I team up with my friend Gail, from Gail Pan Designs, we host a day with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea and have a wonderful day sewing.
We had about 55 ladies and I think everyone had a ball. There are a few photos here. (I forgot to take photos, sorry!!) If you are interested in joining us next year, here are more details.
I designed a couple of patterns for the day, which I am very pleased with, a Journal cover and a Christmas wall hanging
To celebrate my new patterns, I'd like to have my first ever giveaway. I have 3 copies of each. Simply leave a comment and next week I'll announce the 3 winners.
This gorgeous old farmhouse is just up the road from me. I walked on that side of the road for a change (no footpath on that side) and this amazing shot jumped out. Once spring has really sprung, I'll walk down again and take another photo with all the foliage on the trees.
This beautiful camellia tree has the most amazing coloured flowers. The bees are obviously not cleaning their feet when they move from flower to flower ;-) Thank goodness, because the results are stunning!!
