Friday

 I went for a big (for me) walk down Edwards Point because I thought there was a fairy settlement there. 5.6 km later I was back home and not a fairy to be seen!

Into the park

Deciding NOT to walk the 6km walk!!

Following the path

Over the wetlands on the board walk

following the path to the beach

stopping for a rest at the Big Seat

following the beach home.
Saturday I didn't got for a walk as it was pouring all day, so I found out a bit more information and today went for a walk in a different direction.
Today I was in the right place

Love the sign

there are several hanging residences

complete with little gardens

Aren't people clever

And then there is the Resort for Retired Fairies. This was made by a woman who lives at Indented Heads, to fill in her time over the last 6 weeks of stay at home.

Lots of little fairy homes

The fairies have different coloured wings, the darker they are the naughtier the fairy is I have read!

The gnome does not seem impressed with his new neighbours!

The fairies had their pets with them.

The all look very happy.

Relaxing and enjoying their retirement.

I wonder if these glow at night?

The fairy dell. I enjoyed my walk here today, there were many many mosquito's here, enjoying the visitors! There was a family with young children looking around when I got there and another family arrived as I was leaving. Great to go and have a look at.

Meanwhile back at the house I have sandwiched and quilted this quilt made by Wendy from the Guild. 

I have also done some quilting on the Kevin and Kathleen quilt

and watched this DVD which I really enjoyed, might have another look today.
I am off to do some sewing or maybe I will sit and read in the sun. So good to have choices.
Happy stitching.

You had some great walks and I am in love with that Fairy place, what a fabulous idea. I want to retire there and have very dark wings, that would be fun! Thanks so much for sharing, that brightened my day! Little women is a lovely film, enjoy! Have a wonderful Sunday! Hugs, Valerie

That fairy village will grow fast like GNOMESVILLE in WA. It was a site to see.
Great quilting too.

What a fun fairy village. Love the retired fairies in their bikinis. Good progress in the sewing room. Did you find time to sit and read as well as do some sewing?

The fairy dell is so wonderful Sue. It makes me feel like making a little fairy house & adding to their collection - maybe a quilting circle one. I think I love the retired fairies most of all. Your quilts are great .. hope you enjoy the movie. Take care Sue. xx

What a wonderful walk and oh how I love the fairy dell....especially the retired ones lol! Kevin and Kathleen is looking great. As a huge fan of the Winona Ryder version of Little Women I didn't think I would like it but I loved it!

I just love the fairy dell. Some spoke habe too much time on their hands and we are the lucky ones to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
