I have been away in the caravan . I am back today after a 2 week break at the beach camping ,swimming ,walks. Seeing and enjoying the dolphins playing in the surf everyday. At beautiful Foster /Tuncurry Beach Holiday Park. Nestled between Nine Mile Beach and the Wallis Lake outlet channel. N.S.W.
The internet wasn't a very strong signal for posting and photos while away but I did manage a few looks on here as I love seeing what projects my talented bloggie friends are currently doing.
While away I did finish 2 more Civil War 41/2" blocks from Dear Jane. I now have a total of 18 . I am not making a full size quilt but will make a wall hanging with them. Some I have hand stitched and some have been on the sewing machine.
I also had a near finish of some embroidery for a secret santa gift. Can't show yet.
I would love to show you my dear sewing friend Barbara's Tree of Life quilt. I just love the colours and beautiful fabrics. Barbara has embellished the lady with gold thread and it is really beautiful.
I just had to go to the Patchwork shop while away. My dear hubby says we must have been to everyone of them in Australia by now!!. Not so.
I did buy some pretty fabric to make my granddaughter a little dress for the summer..
And who could resist adding to the wool stash a big bargain ball of wool (300m) for knitting a shawl for the cooler weather. A fun quick project.
Some holiday photos.
The rock pool at the ocean entrance.
That is me with my cap and sun glasses on, As I never get my hair wet going under or get caught by a big wave comeing in. I don't go out that far. haha
Every morning the surfers at Nine Mile beach waiting for the best wave to come in.
Last but not least here is dear hubby putting together a quilting frame for us to use. We have never tried this before so we expect to have some fun working this out!!. He is very keen to have a go and is preparing a spot in the garage to keep it assembled .Pulling it to the ceiling and lowering it when needed onto a mat.
Well must get to bed as I have to empty the caravan and give it a clean in the morning.
Happy sewing week.
