Monday madness (photo heavy)

Well I have decided today is mad day as so many people have told me I am mad....must be very silly all kinds of things as I am working on tiny hexies
here is the first one finished, this is to be added to Doing the Rounds

to give you and idea of the real size, they are quarter inch hexies

the next lot getting ready, I can see I am going to have trouble getting the fussy cut hexies in the right place on the fabric!
There was some beautiful show and tell today, I only got a few
a string quilt

Lynda has made this for her grandson Paddy to celebrate his love of dirt bike riding

another string quilt in different colours.
I took a couple of photos on my way to sewing this morning

this  lady and dog were enjoying a walk along the beach, every now and then the dog would run into the water and bark and bark!
Shane, #2 son is staying a couple of nights so we went out this afternoon to have a play with our cameras

something of interest ahead!

It has been a windy stormy kind of day

lots of white caps

and photos being taken

and interesting angles being chosen!
loads of barnacles on the boat launching ramp.


the Christmas blocks quilt is together 

the backing chosen...now to make a sandwich!
Happy stitching.
