I have been visiting Finn and his family and having walks with them when we time our walks together
we have had play time at home
and watched Finn venture into eating solids!
We have had hot sunny days, some even went in swimming, a bit cold for me yet
the pelicans enjoyed the bits from the fish cleaning station, I think the pelican on the right might have been eating squid
I had a walk along the sea front in Geelong one day and enjoyed the bollards again
these two are looking a bit the worse for wear sadly
we have had some cooler and wet weather too.
Today I delivered my quilt to West Geelong for the Quilt Exhibition of the Guild starting tomorrow
the bookcase quilt is all finished.
I had a walk around and in the Botanic Gardens on the way home
Well blogger has moved these all around so they are mixed up!
back in St Leonards walking
on the walk around the Botanic Gardens the fruit bats are snoozing in the pine trees
a bit of a fuzzy zooming in photo 😀
a big old tree I liked 😀
beautiful flowers in the dry garden section
in one of the hot houses
they had a kowhai tree in flower in the gardens, although it was labelled a tree from Chile, the nectar feeding birds love these flowers
part of a sculpture in the gardens, sadly I chopped it's head off!!
seed pods from an interesting tree, no seeds though
this beautiful stag fern? was in the fernery.
I am currently working on an Aussie Hero quilt, the request was for Staffordshire terriers and the ship crest - hope he likes blue!!
the next one is for Tank Evans from Surfs Up. This requires a large applique - next weeks job!
A little progress has been made on the modern triangles, a challenge at the Bellarine Quilters
these were mostly foundation paper piecing
A little more has happened on the Daylesford quilt top
and the cropped diamonds are coming along slowly
I called in to Heights sewing centre after dropping off my quilt, I had a voucher to spend ( lucky me) and found these plus some quilting templates to have a play with
went to the bike shop and got a comfy seat for my bike ( I hope!!)
and I have started reading this book...phew are you still awake??
I am off to continue on the AH quilt.
