Happy Australia Day

I rode my bike down the street this morning  to get bread and milk, which was just as well as there was not a car park to be found!
These keen men were fishing near the boat ramp

There were lots of boats coming back in.

The boat trailer queue was getting longer and longer

Lots of people and boats at the jetty and waiting in the water

More on the other side

The pelicans were being well fed

This Aussie Hero quilt is waiting for it's binding to be sewn down

This one is finished and gone n the mail.

Last night I finished another Old Time Kaleidoscope Block. Now I need to cut out the next one.
I had better head off and get the binding sewn down, write the letter to go with it and then decide what I do next.
From the Kiwi who happily lives in Oz.
Happy stitching.

PS I forgot to say, Flat Stanley is winging his way to NZ and is going to stay with Raewyn on the farm.

Looks like a beautiful day for a bike ride Sue. Your quilts that you churn out are amazing. What do you have to write in the letters you send with them I am wondering?

Happy Australia Day to you too. It looks like everyone is wanting to make the most of their day on the water. The latest quilts look great.

Wow, we're not huge peoply people so that queue isn't something Hubby and I would wait for, even on a holiday day!
Otherwise, your bike ride looks just lovely :)

Feel free to share at My Corner of the World

It's lovely to see so many people out and about and enjoying the day.... hope flat Stan has a good trip... he will have fun with Raewyn...

The Kaleidoscope block is absolutely stunning and so neatly made.
I am jealous of Flat Stanley. I am sure Raewyn's farm is a lovely place to rest and enjoy. Hope you have a lovely and productive week.

Raewyn said...

Hehe I wondered how Preeti knew that Flat Stanley was coming here for a holiday! Your Aussie Hero quilts are looking great Sue, you're getting lots done at the moment! It does look busy, everyone out on the water celebrating the holiday weekend! I love the colours in your latest Kaleidoscope block :-)
