Back home

Here we are back at St Leonards ....all is good, well except for hubby who has been back to the Dr this morning and now has super strength antibiotics! Tupai and I enjoyed a walk along the beach this morning

the morning wallow!!


so nice here this morning


Lovely peaceful way to spend a few hours!

Shane, #2 son requested a quilt to go across the end of his bed with a Union Jack in the middle....mmmmmm...when I went to Spotlight just after Christmas they had the Union Jack panels on special, so I asked and got permission to go ahead, found some kind of matching fabric...it is so hard to match the reds!!!!  Then finally today I have started cutting the fabric...will be simple, just squares added to the sides to get the right width, and a gray border around the flag to begin.That is the plan at the moment!!!


these are the stitcheries I took to NZ, some progress was made, I have another traced that had nothing done on it, but I will get to that at some stage! 
I had better be off and get some sewing done before it is time to get dinner!
Happy sewing.
