Here we are at the start of another month...this year is flying by! Tonight is a chance to sit and sew with other like minded people, join up over at Gone Stitchin' where Cheryll is out lovely host.
We have had some lovely days here lately
Calm still mornings

some cloudy afternoons though!

Yesterday I went for a bike ride, which was a bit silly as I had to ride into a howling gale!!!  The shags were all resting at the lagoon, which was calm and peaceful when I went past.

Coming home we had a little surf.

The KOGO blanket is done, well I have run out of wool, next I need to do a crochet edge and then it can be sent off.

The Aussie Hero laundry bag is under way, I need to add a square with the initials and then sew it together

Last Monday we got to see Linda's beautiful quilt she has just finished, quilted by herself..isn't it wonderful?

I tried to take a photo of the finished  oncology quilt top out on the front deck, but the wind was a bit strong and it kept falling off

better back inside.
I am off to sort out what to do tonight and to pour the G & T!
Happy sewing.
