A bit of stitching

 I have enjoyed a little canvas work over the last week. I had forgotten how much fun it is. Here is a little house ready to be displayed. I was hoping it would fit into my printers tray but it is a bit big.

Paddy shared her very cute bunny that she has made for her grandie, Stella. What a lovely easter gift.

Jayne has been busy too making these gorgeous embroidery and applique collages.

Ma came to visit a few weeks ago. Little miss enjoyed reading her reader to Ma.

Weekend at the coast

 Each year the Thursday girls head off the the coast for a retreat. It is always very relaxing with delicious food,  laughs and plenty of chat. This year even I braved the sea for a swim. It was pretty wild in the ocean but the temperature of the water was very good.

This and that

 It is certainly Autumn here as it has become quite chilly in the evenings. Still we have had a few sunny days recently to make up for the rain. I feel so sorry for the many who have been flooded in NSW and Queensland. What a terrible time for many. 

We have all been fine here and quite a bit of the rain missed us. I have had some fun recently knitting a scarf. After quite a few goes at starting and making a silly error, it ended up knitting up well. Thanks to Jan for the lovely wool.

I also received my 2021 blog book too. I am so silly and called it 2020! I know 2021 was very similar to last year but I can't believe that I was that silly.

Lovely to see some beautiful stitching on Wednesday. Jayne has made a gorgeous zippered pouch with this lovely slow stitching panel.

Beth had finished her gorgeous ipad case for her sister. 
Roni has been hand piecing all these diamonds to make this lovely quilt!

She also couldn't resisit this cute bunny when she was shopping!
I have started a new scarf! It is slow going but good fun using perle 8 cotton.
And, I will finish with some pictures of the miss when she was here last week. Do you like her red nose?
