Out and about and EPP

Today I have been to Sunbury and back.....and luckily I missed most of the storm that dropped all over Geelong!! Only a few spits of rain as I neared Corio.
storm clouds up ahead

here they are heading off towards Werribee and Point Cook
I heard 17 people were rescued from their cars during the flooding, not what you expect to hear in the city of Geelong!!
Today I posted of an Aussie hero quilt
the request was for waves and beach....I hope the recipient likes it! I also sent 6 knitted square blankets off to KOGO, they had been finished for a while, so I finally got them in the post. They will be off to new homes very soon.
When in Sunbury I snuck a photo of Karen's dog Zac....sound asleep in his bed...he is 4 months old, but...

the minute Karen turned on the hair dryer Zac was there on my knee, waiting for his turn!! He is a funny little boy, loves having his hair dried!! Lol!!

This week is link up time with Anthea over at Hibiscus Stitches...celebrating all things EPP over there...I am attaching 7 black hexie flowers to my hexie quilt, last night I sewed them on one side, tonight I need to sew on the other side.

and I have also been busy with some secret sewing...getting a little closer to a finish!! Yay!! Well it is G & T time for me I think, no storm damage here thank goodness!!!
Happy sewing.

We had the storm during the night but I didn't hear it. It has been a lovely day here. So glad you didn't get caught in it.

Glad you missed the storm Sue. Would not have been fun driving in that. Sounds like a nice day out. That little dog is the cutest and your Aussie Hero quilt turned out beautifully

The storm sounds nasty, you will be glad you missed it. Good on you with another Aussie Hero quilt - how many have you made now? Love your hexies, they look so jewel-like!

The weather sure looked grim yesterday. What a cute little dog! The hexies look great!

So many Aussie Hero quilts! Your hexie quilt will be a great partner to your charm sampler.

Wow, you had a busy time of it on Tuesday! I do love your hexagon quilt. I guess the good thing is someone in Australia got some rain. It seems to alternate between being dry as a bone with fires and flooding!
