Monday

sees the start of meetings at the Bellarine Quilters and there was a good turn out today, there was a show and tell
I don't know whoes quilt this is but there is to be a class making the window sections at Bellarine next Saturday

this is a quilt made by Rae, with panels and she tried out different quilting in each square..it looks fantastic.

Di basted this quilt in the morning, it was from a class she did when living in NZ

Sue made these tables covers for her grand kids to take to school..love the fabrics!

I did a few more leaves and now have moved on to a flower, I think I have four flowers and one bird to go!!
Yesterday hubby and I decided to go for a walk in the afternoon, so we drove, in a round about way (yep we did a tiki tour as I got lost!!) to Point Impossible, just past Breamlea.
From there we followed a road
not very interesting, and came out on another road, then we turned left and went to a beach, as we could not find the walking trail we were supposed to be following. It turned out the beach was a nudist beach, so hubby said keep your head down and do not stare!!! Lol!! So I did and we walked to Torquay 
Glimpse of the sea

we walked from WAY past that headland you can see in the distance

we got an ice cream at Torquay at the surf club and then headed back...walking on the sand is not easy, I had some sore muscles when we got back to the car and two blistered toes! The biggest challenge was walking back along the nudist beach for a short way and not looking at two men going for a stroll along the beach in nothing but their hats!! I hope they had sun screen on!!
I am off to do some sewing, or maybe cutting for sewing before getting dinner.
Happy sewing.

I love Show and Tell and miss that part of being in a guild with regular meetings and such. A nudist beach! Well, I probably wouldn't have gone to one when I was younger, but now - who knows?

Loved all the show and tell. You are making great progress on your applique. Still chuckling over your nudey walking adventures lol! Could have been worse...you could have had Tupai go and introduce himself!

Oh sew how funny. So you kept your clothes on then. You will be more sore tomorrow if you are sore today. That top quilt you will do a class on, if it's QAYG, it will be a breeze for you.

Lovely show and tell Sue,Oh my sounds like you took a wrong turn at Albuquerque or could becoming a nudist be a new pastime?

Love seeing the beautiful work on show. Good to see your applique is getting attention. Have spent lots of time at Breamlea but haven't made it to Pt Impossible. I have heard that it is a nudist haven.
