Out and about today

 Today I had to take the Guild laptop to the laptop Dr to get looked at as it was not well. It has been left there for tests and hopefully it will have a full recovery as it needs to be in good working order for the next newsletter.

I had to go over to Torquay, down the coast from us about 50 mins drive, not allowing for me getting lost and having a little Tiki tour.

Coming home I decided to stop at the beaches along the way


Whites Beach in Torquay, windy today so the waves are rolling in.

Barwon Heads, I am not sure what the dark blob is, maybe my finger? This is the calm beach with the two bridges over the river.

Looking up the river at Barwon Heads to the open sea, the building to the right is a restaurant.

Under the bridges again.

Ocean Grove, a collection of lost items.

Lunch in the car before heading home.

Ingrid was here for the weekend and on Saturday afternoon (late) she decided to make a mini quilt. All the pieces are one and a half inch square and is called Planning a Trip quilt, Ingrid beavered away and by later in the evening the quilt was done. She is now working out how to keep the zig zag edge and bind.

I have managed a measly three foundation paper pieced hearts, plus a little hand sewing with hexies.
Maybe more will be done tomorrow. I am not bothered I have had a good day.
Happy stitching.

The beaches are looking lovely, but I’m guessing the blue sky is deceptive and that it is quite icy. Computers are frustrating when they won’t play. Let’s hope the recovery is swift. It’s fun to have time stitching with a friend, even if not a lot of stitching happens.

I remember visiting Barwon Heads many years ago....hubs and I were fans of the original "Sea Change" series. Lunch in the car on a windy day at the beach is a must. Ingrid's mini is pretty. Looking forward to seeing her binding solution.
