Saturday

Today was a bits and pieces day...this morning I finished the top of the dinosaur quilt
I am happy with how it turned out.
This afternoon I went into Geelong...the storm was coming through at the same time, I could see the lightening as I was driving.

Luckily I got to the parking building just as the rain started, but not so luckily I needed to walk a bit to get to the Gordon Gallery, but I had an umbrella I was given years ago as a joke, it is small (meant for a child) green and has frog eyes on the top and a big smile!! Well it was all I had so I had to use it.  Must say it made several people smile and a small child asked their father for one!! Lol!! I got very wet in spite of the umbrella!!

I went to the Artisans of Geelong to see the tram lady hanging, there were signs everywhere saying no photos, so after asking if I could take one of my own work I was told to be sneaky...so sneaky I was!! The display was good, this is the first year it has been done, hopefully it will grow in the coming years.

The rain had stopped when I came out but there were lots of puddles...this is the Geelong library building, and the Art Gallery, love how the mirrored library windows make the building less invasive.

I thought I might catch up to the storm on the way home..it was slowly moving towards Melbourne

Impressive clouds. 

When I got home I worked on the quilting  on the fabric mosaic of the boys, is just straight lines with a kind of zig zag stitch.
Still have quite a bit to go, I have to go back and iron now and them as some of the little bits keep on dropping off!! Cheeky bits!!
Had better go and rescue my dinner from the oven!!
Is raining outside again, sounds good on the roof.
Happy weekend.
