I am doing a couple of sew alongs on the net and I find them quick and easy to do. I sew the blocks during the day and sit at night and do the embroidery as I find it very relaxing.

This is block 2 from Dawns free block of the month and I can hardly wait till next month to see what i will be sewing for block 3.

These two blocks are from a BOM from a forum that I have joined and were very easy and fast to do. I did the cutting and sewing in a couple of hours and the hand stitching that night while watching TV.

This is a UFO I found in the cupboard and decided to finish so it could go on display. The frame is a little small but I will swap it over when I find a bigger one.

DH and I have just spent 3 lovely days at Victor Harbor visiting our DD and her family. The weather was much cooler than in Adelaide and we even had some rain but it did not spoil the fun and games we all enjoyed together. We went for walks along the foreshore and paddled our feet in the water and looked at lots of shells and seaweed as well as visiting the tram horses, which they must do every time the go for a walk to the beach. We also went to Busy Bugs and had a fun morning doing lots of activities. There is a gym trail and that was very popular especially jumping into the ballpit at the end, Dancing and singing, colouring in, kitchen play, trampolining and outdoor activities. The girls did it all with Nan following right behind. Then to the toy library to get 3 new toys for a couple of weeks then home for lunch and a sleep.

This is Hayley having fun in one of the many ride ons in the out door area.

This is Chloe on the slippery dip and she really enjoys it.

Here is Hayley on the trampoline and she is a little daredevil and jumps and bounces as high as she can with a big grin on her face.

Here1s Chloe having a little rest while doing the gym trail.

After lunch we went for a drive to Port Elliot and a a lovely afternoon tea at a local cafe. We shared some muffins and they were the lightest, tastiest muffins I have ever had, the coffee and milkshakes were yummy as well. Then it was back to Victor to get daddy and papa some dinner. We were tired but had a lovely girls day out.
I am now worn out from writing so off to watch some TV if I can find anything to watch and hopefully an early night.
Cheers Judy
