Out and about

Well today I have been around to Port Arlington to the girls at Bellarine Quilters...today was one of their meet up days....I arrived about 10.30 and left about 2.35 ish, and in the middle of that wandered out to have a look at Patchwork and Rusty Pins the shop around the corner....who is having a 50% off sale! Yipee!! This is what I came out with
a beautiful candle...smells divine!!!, thread to try with the hexies as it is fine like silk thread...cottons for a wool pin cushion......a beautiful little tin....(I just liked it!!) a fat quarter that will be great for an Aussie Heros quilt  and a jelly roll just because it was half price, but it is lovely fabric and I have an idea for it! The sale goes for a few more weeks if anyone is interested.
There was show and tell at the Bellarine Quilters group today
this quilt was made from fabrics purchased on a trip to Canada...it is beautiful...pattern also was bought overseas...

this is the pattern from Mill Rose, made with Kaffe Fasset fabric...again just beautiful...I am inspired to make one now I have seen it in the flesh so to speak but think I will use batiks.....(one day)

and this one is the one you are doing I think Marg and Tracee.....another beautiful quilt top....
meanwhile I went back to my stitchery....but...
I spotted this dog down on the main street...quite liked him/her...

it is such a beautiful day,I had to go and have a look at the beach...the wharf is having work done on it so it looks like an industrial area at present....lots of people were sitting on the beach behind me...one lady was in her banana lounge chair reading her book...I so wanted to go and join her!! Lol!!
But I had to head home..I'd bought fish for dinner so best not to leave that in the car for too long!!
It was still very noisy when I got home......but....
the super shed is well on the way...one front panel and one back panel are now on and I think a window is in that hole...no doubt more will happen tomorrow.......
but while I was out and about at Port Arlington I spied this bag.....

....I resisted the bright red one.....I had a look, went away, then went back and bought it! Bit naughty but hey you only live once!! 
I did a little stitching today
not far to go now, I hope to get it finished tonight.
Happy sewing.

Good timing to find that sale and those lovely little purchases. I don't think that I could have left that bag behind either.
