Spring

 has made itself felt here in out little part of the world, we have had some beautiful days, I have had some great walks along the beach

Calm and peaceful

Monday I got to take Hank for a walk, his parents both had to go to the office for the first time in months, so I was asked to call in and say hello. We went for a 5 km walk, I was exhausted, he got home and did mad zoomies around the back yard!!


Contemplating the water down at the pier, he came back to our house for most of the day and then went back home. Of course when his Mum got home he told her he had been home alone all day!!!! Big sook! Actually to be fair he is a rescue dog and has separation anxiety, so it was good we could have him with us for most of the day.  

Pelicans in their usual places

This one appeared to be asleep.
Sunday afternoon I got out in the howling wind and sandwiched this Minions quilt, I just got it done when the rain came.

The postcard for the Guild challenge is finished, I think we are having a show and tell of photos in one of the newsletters as we are not able to meet in the usual numbers.

This week I also made three Santa Sacks which will go to Jan Mack

Tow Anthology blocks were made today, the one on the right sadly does not meet where it should but the over all measurements are correct so I am not mucking with it.

Only one jumper has been finished, Panda is still waiting and another sloth came home with me this week.

This afternoon I sewed another few stars, I think I have another 5 to go and then I need to work out how to sew them all together. 
I had better be off I cam smell dinner is nearly ready and I need to make gravy.
Stay safe and keep well.
Happy stitching.

Funny how Hank wore you out. Great Minion quilt. Good idea about the Santa sacks. I just got the measurements. Do you line your sacks. Happy knitting. You are doing so well with your Anthology blocks…

You've got a great setting for your walks Sue - and a 5 km walk would have really got your muscles working! Good that they were able to get back to the office. Minions is awesome - such a cute quilt. Actually great sewing all round xx

Look at that beautiful water and blue sky....bring it on. Hank is a lucky boy to have two homes to spend his time between. Pretty postcard and lots of lovely varied projects that you are working on.

Hello Hank! That was a big walk you went on and I'll bet he loved every minute of it. The water looks very inviting too and I'll bet come the summer, Hank will love to have a little splash in there.
You have some sweet projects on the go. That fabric postcard is really lovely.

Oh I'll bet Hank just loves having your around the corner now Sue - he is a beautiful dog. Don't you wish you had his energy. I love all your new creations - the postcard is really gorgeous. Look forward to seeing the other jumpers on the animals. xx

We have been doing lots of the same things. Reading all the 7 Sisters books; cutting out fancy bone china cups and saucers to sew on and smelling wonderful freesias. ( cream Burtoni have the strongest perfume of the 4 different ones I have.)

Fiona said...

You do live in a beautiful part of the world. So nice to have warmer weather (some of the time). I love seeing everything you are working on.

Pamela said...

Hank looks very fun! You always have many interesting projects.

Sue - my goodness, the pictures of the beach are stunning. Happy for you that spring has arrived. Signs of autumn are everywhere here, but we are still having warm-ish afternoons. Lovely weather.

Gorgeous photos from your walk! I don't think there is a walk long enough to exhausted a puppy. So great that you can look after him when his mum is not around. The sleeping pelican is super cute. You stayed busy with beautiful sewing projects!! The postcard looks like a watercolour painting. Brave of you to baste a quilt outside with rain looming.

Love walking with you so keep the pics coming...
Nice work on the sewing front too...& your postcard looks wonderful...xox

Susan said...

I'm sure both you & Hank appreciate the company.

basting/pinning quilts is a bit of a chore - another necessary evil??
but at least you got it done before the rain.
Always a lot of fun stuff with you.

Such lovely pics from your walk on a sunny day. Love the minions and your panda is eagerly awaiting some new clothes. Looking forward to seeing what you do with those lovely stars.
