It's been a busy couple of weeks. First of all a weeks holiday with friends in Port Vincent, fishing and feasting on blue swimmer crabs! Yummy!  Then home to babysit, catch up on some gardening and start a bit of a clean up in my sewing room (I don't think it's flash enough to call a studio!)  Have been sorting out my quilt batting supplies - keeping what I like and know I can use, and giving away the rest.
I have also given away two 'wonky' bears (that I bought several years ago in a second hand shop) to the delightful Jess of 'teddybearswednesday' fame. I didn't want them any more and Jess seemed very happy to give them a new home. They are winging their way to her as I write! They are looking very apprehensive here sitting on the couch but I know they will be very happy in their new home!
This fin was only a few metres off shore this morning!!  It's a dolphin with her baby trying to catch fish. Fun to watch.
So not a lot of stitching has been taking place. I am going to make some more colour blocks today.

Playing with colour

After working with shot cottons for my little challenge quilt I was keen to try something bigger! I've finished a lap size top using very geometric shapes (see below) and am now playing with some free pieced blocks for the back (see above) and thinking of doing a reversible quilt. It's so much fun playing with these colours.

The other morning I threw some bread scraps on the lawn for the birds and when I looked up a bit later my friend the fox was watching me!

The things you see....

I commented the other day about seeing different things every time I go to the beach. This is what greeted us this morning! Not sure how it got there but I hope no one was using it at the time!
