Hello, Blogging friends,
The second day of winter here in Australia and it has turned very cold and raining where I am on the East Coast
My husband and I love it when the Whales arrive through winter and leave us in the spring.This is when we start whale watching. They are heading north now to give birth migrating from the southern ocean then back again with their new born calves along the Australian east coast heading to their home in Antartic waters.
We pack the thermos coffee and morning tea to go see them reguarly surfacing. They swim very close to the shoreline and beaches. So is easy to spot them. We are only 10 minutes drive away from the beaches so we spend an hour spotting and each time we see at least 4 to 6. They rest,feed,breach and tail slap. They are so huge and beautiful. Awesome to watch.
I usually take my knitting in the car and if it is not too cold enjoy the outdoors.
Today I have been quilting a baby floor quilt and only have to sew the binding tomorrow and another project finished. I can show a lovely finished quilt by my friend Anne at sewing class. I think it is beautiful. My camera doesn't show the colours that well.
Seeing as what I have been complaining about my camera of late I now have a new one that came in the mail yesterday . Sent to me from my dear son and daughter-inlaw. He said it has twice as many megapixels ,more optical zoom and lots of other features. It is little and cute. Thank you my dear ones.
And!!! I am saving this till last. My purchase of a Go Baby Accuquilt fabric cutter parcel came the same day with the mail man. Exciting day it was. So I am haveing a lovely play with my new toys this weekend.
I look foreward to a day of sewing tomorrow. Happy sewing to you also.
