A Day Out / Ins and Outs.

Today I went to Geraldton to have lunch with my DD1, GD1 and my friend. It was a lovely drive into town. The canola is looking very pretty.    

Sorry the photo is blurry, just clicked through my window.
On the way I dropped off a couple of quilts to a lady. Look at the beautiful view as I drove away from her home.

I picked my "Bargello" from the quilters and then did some much needed shopping

before going to lunch with my lovely girls.
Had a great day and on the way home when I had to stop for some road work I saw a gorgeous rainbow. Actually there were two.

This week I have recieved a lovely giveaway from Stephanie of Loft Creations.

Siggy blocks I recieved and the one I have sent.
Also sent out two 12" blocks to my swap partners.

Blue and Green for Teena and the Xmas one for Crafty Pug. Thanks Zlaty for the pattern.

These are the two I have recieved .
  Oh I nearly forgot. Had to go out now to take a photo of "WILL" I just love him. Reminds me of Sunny's brown Pelicans. Another must have!!
