If you have read Australian blogs in the last few days you will know that we picked just the right days to head to the ocean on holiday. Temperatures of between 41 and 45 degrees here with little or no wind, then hot strong northerly's were enough to fry my garden (what was left of it anyway) but down on the coast we had the sea breeze which made it bearable....and an ocean and pool....Almost too hot for Dh here so he basically joined us on holiday, only retruning daily to mainly check stock and water. So it was lucky I didn't decide to take the sewing machine!!! I took some hand work and managed to finish this UFO.....
Which was stipple quilted with the quilting machine.
The little pekin silky chickens were fresh from the shell
...and thought the little white dots on the green border were food!
So that will be one item finished for May Britt's challenge. I also worked on my lone star and have about half of the star appliqued to the backing. You will be pleased to know I Really enjoyed my holiday but there were no beach campfires....total fire bans throughout the state for days!
I will show you some holiday snaps next post, there are too many for now.
Seven weeks of School holidays just flew, I think my babies grew by multiple inches...my not-yet -11 year old's feet went up by over 3 women's sizes since her last fitting...a 9 1/2 now! I was that until I had kids, then moved to a size 10...just another one of those joyful things about pregnancy! we both have a good solid hold on the earth.
They were ready for the bus with half an hour to spare so I got a lot of shots, here are two I like...well, we should probably say 2 where my DS is not making some kind of dodgy face...his new favourite way to annoy his mother!
The poor little boy had run around bare foot mainly in bathers all the summer; putting a collar and tie and socks and shoes on tried him sorely!!
Have a great day, off to clean!! Tracey
