Spending some time with these lovely ladies from all over

Victoria on retreat at the beautiful Lakes Entrance,

organised by Lily Lane.



Who doesn’t love a weekend of stitching, sewing,

catching up with like minded friends and making new ones.

(Sorry for the blury pics)




Show and tell after lunch, these star blocks produced from the morning and

with Jen displaying blocks for her version of Illusions.



Another show and tell this week is from Lynne,

who emailed this pic (top) of her version

of my Morning Glory design.

Love those bright colours, thanks for sharing Lynne.


Thanks for visiting.

On a cold winters day we set up

 for the stitching day with The Sewing Bee Cafe.

Project for the day was my Clementine bag available in 2 colourways.

No time for me to take pics during the day,

these next pics are courtesy of The Sewing Bee Cafe.

All of these lovely ladies busy with

English Paper Piecing and making 3D flowers.







A very generous gift of this bundle of fabrics,

matches perfectly with others from my stash.

Thank you to every one who attended and

Debbie & Sonia for making this a fun memorable day.

Thanks for visiting.

Autumn Garden! - May 9th, 2017

Out in the backyard today to take some pics of new designs,

too sunny and waiting for the sun to go behind a cloud.

With so much rain over the past couple of months,

the garden is looking very pretty.



The Camellias have been loaded with flowers this year.





My lemon tree is just as loaded with fruit.



This Bromeliad is the star of the garden.


Thanks for visiting.

Easter weekend! - April 20th, 2017


Easter on the Ninety Mile Beach this year started

with some not so good weather, overcast, windy

and rough seas. Although we love this beach

in all weather.


What a difference a day makes,

clear skies, calm water and not another person in sight.


A visit to the newly opened

Lily Lane Too was in order to purchase some needed supplies.



To complete my stack of stars.



Thanks for visiting.

Mystery Revealed! - January 16th, 2017


A great sunrise a couple of days ago,

with dark clouds and a red sky.

Reminded me of the old saying

 ‘Red sky at  night Shepard’s delight.

red sky in the morning Shepard’s warning’.

How true it is, half an hour into our walk and it started to rain

and rain and rain and rain.

Quite a relieve after all the hot weather we’ve had.


Sunrise 13-1-17a


Mystery quilt has been revealed, with many participants

staying up sewing to complete their quilts.

At the moment all I have time for,

is to lay mine out to see the possibilities.

The first, is the layout per instructions.


En Provence Finale1


As my lighter purples are a little too light,

they tend to run into my neutrals. (light grey)

I turned my purple four patch blocks around to reveal the second pic.


En Provence Finale2


I’m tempted to go with the second choice.


Thanks for visiting.
