On a still, bitterly cold morning this week I captured this reflection. This small lake only appears in the winter. Normally it's just sand and grassy tussocks. 

I've finished my first alphabet for ALaW. I decided to go even more 'dotty' and added buttons and used a dotty fabric for the background. Now to put the thinking cap on for the next alphabet!

A three day trip to Sydney for the big annual quilt show. Lots of amazing quilts, lots and lots of tempting shops and the usual iconic sights!  (The Sydney Harbour Bridge has just celebrated it's 80th birthday.)
This was the view from the hotel as I lay in bed watching the sun rise!

The highlight of the trip was a get-together dinner with eight members of our Stitching Across the Ditch challenge group. We all brought our little quilts and it was so much fun to see them in 'real life', not just a picture on the blog. There was a lot of talking and laughter! (and I forgot to take a photo!)

Wintery beach walks


There is a little bit of stitching going on. I have finished the last letters of my alphabet for ALaW2012. Now I am working on putting them all together. The whole process has been a really enjoyable challenge.

Morning walk

On the beach this morning - little creatures making drawings in the sand

and Hooded Plovers at the waters edge.

Their little bodies barely move and their legs go so fast you can hardly see them.
