Catch Up Post !

 Thought it was time to do a catch up post as to what I'd been up to lately apart from my morning dips I have worked on some secret sewing.... 

Fiona from Bubz Rugz and I thought it would be fun to do an Autumn Mini swap . When I collected the mail today her beautiful Mini was in my post box ...It was wrapped in great paper with a lovely hand made tag..

Thanks heaps Fiona. I love all the pretty stitchery blocks and the way you hand quilted it... 

Mine has also arrived in Qld...

The weekend before last Hubby and I went to the big smoke for GD2s Uni Graduation . It was lovely to go along and see her all dressed in gown and mortar board to receive her certificate . 

While there DD2 and I went to "Sculptures by the Sea ". It was such a glorious sunny day. When we first arrived we had a coffee before going for our stroll to view all the sculptures... there are so many talented folk and the variations of designs is amazing.. some are in my header but here are a few more ,

My favorite was the huge " Silver Boab Tree" ( in the header) .. DD and I enjoyed taking some funny photos on the side...

before leaving on Sunday morning we were treated to a delicious brekky of French Toast with fresh strawberries and Ice cream made by DG2s partner..

 I'm pleased to have my mojo back to play in the Cave and I hope to show my Paper Dolls completed soon....

Thinking of all the folk who are in the floods...

Oh must away as the bed is calling..

Stay safe and well

Hugs  Maria ❤
