Out in the Sunshine, some partying with Chooky and OPAM for May

It was such a beautiful morning that I went for a longer walk along the beach and then sat at the seaside cafe with the ladies till  10.30 am.

As I drove home I had to smile as someone decided that this was the perfect place to put their cross trainer... Must say it is a amazing view.....

when I got home I played with this quilt getting it ready to put under the machine to quilt.

I needed to stretch for awhile sew I had lunch . Then I went out on the block and planted some bulbs around a few trees and did a bit of raking.....

must say the help wasn't much good.  Lacy spread the leaves as quickly as I raked......

after dinner and House Rules I did a little quilting....

Thanks Chooky for inviting me to party with you and all the ladies....Will pop over here and see what others have made through the week.....

Now for my small finishes for May's OPAM....Thank you Peg and  Kris for keeping me on track each month........

    I though Lacy was helping you plant the bulbs, gotta love a terrier doing what terriers do.
    HOpe you jumped on the cross trainer?
    sounds like a lovely weekend and the sun is shining.
    Typical Melbourne weather here, rain, sun, cloud, just wait for the one you want!

  7. I agree with Marina - beautiful soft colors. I've sewed all day, but our internet was out until just a few minutes ago, so I need to do a post about my progress. If I lived near the shore, I'm not sure how much sewing I would ever get done.
