The Supervisor

and I have been walking every morning, enjoying the peace along the beach front now that Easter is over
To swim or not to swim, that was the dilemma facing Tupai
Later in the morning I rode down to the community space for sewing with the St Leonards girls, it was a beautiful morning

today was a bit more overcast

but lovely and calm
I went over to Clifton Springs this morning to do some geocaching, this area was very popular in the 1880's when people came by steamer boat from Melbourne to take the waters! There were baths here, a spa and you could buy the bottled water that came out of the ground.

This is the remains of one of the bottles that used to be used here, they were shaped like a torpedo.
the remains of the old pier


this bird was looking for food but keeping an eye on me too
once back home and after having lunch, I was putting some things away when I found this box, it is full of fabric scraps, most are cut in two and a half inch squares, so I started sewing a few together

and ended up with this! Mmmmmm I do not need a new project at the moment!

Because I started this yesterday,I found this cute panel at Tracey's Discount Fabrics in Geelong and couldn't help myself...just love the sheep!! I have managed to go crooked off the backing on one side so need to fix that..that might be my challenge for tomorrow night as it is
a night of virtual sewing with friends from around the world.
Hosted by Cheryll of Gone Stitchin', you can sign up over at Cheryll's to join in.
Happy sewing.
