Today

the Supervisor and I have had a walk this morning, early!!!
It was very calm and peaceful wandering along the beach front.
I went to Seachange quilters for sewing and chatting today, sometimes more chatting than sewing!! On the way home I stopped at Ocean Grove for a chai and a look at the beach..I was going to go for a wander along the beach but the tide was high and there were some clouds coming over so I sat and watched and listened instead.

Wonderful!  Love the sound of the surf.

a panoramic view of the beach

some random tourist!!!! Lol!! Nothing like a forced, when will the camera take that photo smile!!!


this group went in for a swim and screamed and squealed for a good ten minutes!! I admired them for even just getting wet, but not for the noise they were making!!It was 15 deg C today but still very cold for swimming.

Lots of surfers out today.
Back home...

Last night I sewed the binding on the Santa wall hanging, have gone for white and green spots. 

Today I have been sewing away on the Minerva applique from the Irene Blanck class I did, mostly the bias strips and the large circles on the blue flowers and the tiny circles. Once I get the stems done I will attempt the leaves!
