I made a block for the Guild challenge, the rule was black white and gray, 8 inch block. This didn't get a mention but I was happy I made it. .I made it twice actually as I had sewn the basket the wrong was around the first time!! (Blogger has decided it is a length ways photo!!)
Carleen had a few blocks more to do for her quilt top
Judy had all her blocks together for this beautiful colourful quilt top.
Maxine got her blocks sashed and sewn together, just the borders to go.
On the way home Carleen and I followed a trail of caches down a side road or two, we looked for and found nine, including the one below
These caches had sayings in the title, this one for instance, was Bite the Bullet, sadly the bullet is gone, but it gave us a good laugh, and I am sad to say took us a while to find!! Hard to imagine with it looking so obvious once we had found it!!
This was the view from one of the caches.
At one cache we saw this gate to a cattle station
this was the letterbox at the cattle station
and the cache
This old church had another geocache near it.
Last Saturday The Guild had the annual Quilt In and the speaker was Sugy Kim
This is her award winning quilt Retina, many thousands of little pieces in this quilt.
Sugy speaking, Sugy is Korean, was taught quilting in Japan and now lives in Melbourne.
a bit of a dark photo, Tracee and Marg stitching away
The moon last night as it appeared out of the clouds
hard to get a good photo the shaky hands and the camera on high magnification.
Today was sewing day at Bellarine Quilters, we had a speaker from Kinship Carers
the group presented her with knitted goodies, toys and quilts. The Kinship Carers are mostly grandparents who are raising their grandchildren as their children have drug or alcohol problems. Certainly was eye opening stuff. I appreciate my life very much!
I stopped to find a cache on the way home, the rain had stopped, the sun had come out and it was lovely looking up the beach.
Well this afternoon I was supposed, once again , to be tidying the sewing room, but I have done the grocery shopping, had lunch, caught up with a friend on the phone, done this blog post and it is 4.30pm!! Might go and disturb a few dust particles before I have to get dinner!
