Fun Filled Days.

The last few days have been busy and fun.
Each morning I go for a walk along the beach to the point after wards I go for a dip. It makes for a great start to my day.

Walk to the point 

Can you see the ocean over the sand dune at the end of the board??That is where we Bob.

Friday I managed to finish my three smallest UFO projects.

But not without a  hiccup!!
Stitched the two placemats together.Grrrrr! Don’t you hate that!!

Received a lovely belated Christmas gift from Sunny.

Look at my special Mug Rug. Love it.

Saturday I met my Red Hatter Friends here for
lunch. Afterwards we went to one of our members  wedding.

I was disappointed that I forgot my camera. May get some photos later to post from folk who were there snapping.

Sundays our small group that bob go for breakfast.It was just gorgeous sitting under the tree enjoying our meal and good company.


Now I am sitting here in the cool( it is nearly 40 deg Celsius outside) doing this post and waiting for my DD2 and GC to arrive from Perth. Luckily their car has Air Con.


  1. What a great way to start the day! Gorgeous photos.

    Yeay - well done for finishing up some UFO's - they look great, and yes, I do just hate that... so annoying lol.

    Fab gifts from your friend - I like the little bag too.

  2. what a wonderful life you're living! Love all the mug rugs, yours and those received. I have not made one yet but it is on my list!

  3. What beautiful scenery!!

    Yes, it is so frustrating to make sewing errors like that!

    Have a wonderful time with your family.

  4. Awww...thanks for the summery pictures. It is 26 F here, and we had a little snow yesterday! I knew my little package to you wouwldn't make it in time for Christmas, but I didn't think it would take 3 WEEKS!!! Enjoy the time with your family.

  5. I'm slightly jealous! A walk on the beach in the morning would be fantastic! I like your placemats!

  6. Your projects are great--however, I don't know if I would be able to complete anything if I could walk on the beach and go for a dip! Enjoy it for me please--all I see is snow and ice! It was -12 degrees this morning!

  7. Ahhhh..the beach..I do like the beach. Just stopped in to say Hi !!!! Little Sister.

  8. Sounded like an ideal day, I love the placemats and a finish of a UFO makes it even better. Enjoy your family visit.

  9. The beach looks so lovely. It is
    -10 F here and snowing. I wish I could come visit you. lol

  10. Hi Maria! What a perfect way to start your day - with a lovely walk along the beach and a swim. That's a very beautiful beach, by the way! And it's not quite as cold here as it is where Janet is, but cold nonetheless (2 degress F this morning). Getting 5 more inches of snow on Tuesday! :o( So if she comes to visit, I'm coming with her!

    Congratulations to your friend on her recent wedding!
