After a stressful week I have spent Saturday trying out the new dress pattern I bought to make up for my GD`s. Monday I spent in Modbury hospital with my DH after he suffered an AF attack, this is where the heart beats so fast you can hardly count it. when he was stabalised and back to a normal rythm in his heart i took him home. Thursday It was my turn at the doctors and mine was all good news, so now back to normality for me. Friday and this time take DH to the heart specialist to be followed next week with a heart stress test. The dr assured  my hubby all will be well but he needs to slow down a bit. .Here is side one of the dress and I really like the pockets as they have a gathered top that will keep those little treasures safe.The shoulder straps have two rows of elastic in them and this will keep the dress sitting nice.

The reverse of the dress. I have changed it a little bit and added a pocket and I am very pleased with the results. I bought the pattern from Heart `n` soul at Port Vincent last week and I can see it will become a very popular dress with the three little girls.
Bye for now Jude.

We are visiting Port Vincent in our caravan for a few days. Arrived Tuesday at lunchtime and the weather was perfect, a warm 22 degrees. Went for a walk along the beach and looked in the local shops. Went to visit the marina, lots of boats and even more shags were in residence. The closer you got to the shags the more putrid the air became and we didnt stay very long. Went fishing from the wharf this morning and caught 10 nice mullet, would have caught more but it is a dodge tide here at the moment. Sorry forgot to take a photo of the fish but here are the fish scaled, gutted and filleted ready to cook for our dinner tonight.
 Pelicans quietly waiting for the fish offal.
 Beak wide open and waiting for me to throw him his tea.
This is a view across the bay on Tuesday. Very blue and clean water and the temperature was a lovely warm 22 degrees. Cup of tea time now so will be back later. Jude
