Busy Weekend.


I have been having fun this weekend sewing.
Saturday I went to Patch and helped put together two quilt tops for Charity from the blocks we made last year.

I forgot my camera so can’t show what we did with these . Sad smile


Today, when I went for my swim with my friends the river mouth broke through and look what happened to our lovely beach.  Sad smile

Hope it does not take too long to clear so we can go to our favourite place again to swim. Will check out South Beach tomorrow, were I walk, maybe we can swim there.




This afternoon I finally put together Robyn’s February Hearts sew along top. This is what I have done so far.

I am going to make it into a lovely cushion.

Robyn is inviting us to join her in a Show and Tell Parade.

  2. The hearts looks lovely! Great colors.
    You are so lucky you can go for a swim when you feel like it, here in Norway it is lots of snow and 20 degrees celcius below zero... Brrrr!
