Busy Day

Early this morning my friend and I went for a  walk to the point, then a dip in the sea and brekky at the cafe.

Walk to the point

Starfish Cafe 2012

 Afterwards it was time to clean out my spare rooms as it has been many months since the rooms have been used. I seamed to use them both as a bumping ground for all sorts of things.. Even found tins of paint in there…
Must say they look better now ready for my visitors..

One day I will get round to making a quilt for the big bed. This one is my caravan quilt and a bit small.…

When I was cleaning up the cave to make my UFO list I came across some 6 1/2” blocks which I received in a “Block Swap” I was in a few years ago.. Put them into four sets of twelve popped a bone fabric border in between and around them and now have a nice flimsy..

Needs sandwiching and quilting and popped in the post..

My online Scquilters Group is having a “Rotation Swap Block” and I was also able to put my together tonight…

My theme is the beach and sea.. I do hope someone will stitch on a lighthouse, beach houses, surf boards, bright coloured beach huts, towels , beach umbrellas and shells etc.… I won’t know until the end of the year when my block will be returned…..

Must away and shower then off to bed..
