The last few days

I have been getting ready to go on retreat to Woodend. But I have also been taking the supervisor for a walk each morning too, is good for both of us!!
Friday was a beautiful day, we had a walk at Indented Head

followed by a swim (and then a bath for Tupai...he was NOT impressed!!)

we saw a pelican sitting on a rock watching the world go by
back home I knuckled down and got some things organised

angels for the Christmas Row by Row......I then realised I forgot something important!! Their wings!! Duh!!!

Friday night I stitched together a hexagon

the wings are on now! Phew!!

and as I am not starting anything new......I am playing with these Barb Smith buttons!!

some  snow people are taking shape for the Christmas row by row

I am hoping they will look like they are being seen thru a window when I have finished, we shall see!

I have finished the tea cup bears into their hexie shapes, now to join them together, another lovely pattern from Michelle Ridgway.

today the weather is not so good, we have had some rain here but not much, it seems to be more towards the city

I thought this was a rock until I had a closer look, isn't nature clever!!I had better be off and get some things done, like house cleaning, not my most favourite job I must admit!!
Happy sewing.

You have been very busy. Love your Teacup teddies and your hexie. Sweet angels, especially now they have wings LOL. Have fun on your retreat. A lovely area to relax in. OOo, forgot to mention your snowmen. They are rather cute. So may projects on the go just like me.

I really enjoy seeing the bits of where you live. It looks a lovely place. Can you walk to Indented Head, or do you drive there and then walk the beach? I might exercise some if I had a place that beautiful. LOL
