Just have to share some lovely stitching from some very clever ladies. Heather has designed and stitched these amazing pictures of special views of Canberra. Can you spot the tower? I just love these.

Spring is certainly here now even though the evenings are still sometimes cool. We had a few lovely outings last week. Bruce and I had a lovely visit to Floriade.
I also had a great day at the Tulip Top Farm with my study friends. The day was perfect and I do enjoy seeing the flowers amidst the blossoms and trees.
On the Sunday before last we also had a great day with Alice and her mummy at the Sailing Club Family day! It was amazing with 4 jumping castles which were free, free popcorn, fairy floss, face painting and even a boat ride around the lake. We did buy some delicious fish and chips for lunch.

When Fiona and I were heading off to Gisborne recently, we also had a chance to exchange birthday gifts. I was so spoilt! Fiona made me this amazing pin cushion designed by Sue Hawkins and a lovely basket made from saris. They are both so special.
We were also spoilt on our weekend away with some gifts. We received this little purse with cute buttons in it and even a work lamp. Thanks Chrissie and Judy.
I have been working on my BOM, Here There and Everywhere. Here is part 4.
This little canvas house had also been started and here it is partly sewn together.
At class last week we were so amazed at these fabulous games that Lynda has made her granddaughter. They are such fun!

Fiona and I headed off on a road trip to Gisborne last Sunday week. We drove to Beechworth and spent the night in that lovely town. We enjoyed a delicious pizza at the Bridge Road Brewers, had a wander around the shops, bought a few bits and pieces and then had a yummy breakfast before arriving at the Gisborne Stitching retreat.
Some of the ladies brought along their quilts that they are working on!
I also bought some gorgeous wool from Abbe. I just need some plain wool and then I can start my Timely Cardigan.
Here are some of us just before we headed back home.
Thanks so much to Rose and Chrissie for organising this lovely retreat.
