After the quilt show and all the excitement of the Carnival of Flowers, we decided we needed a little break away and took my darling sister up on the offer of joining them on the Sunshine Coast for a few days.
Sunshine, there was not, but it didn’t bother us. We still had some lovely walks along the beach and some good old chin wags (new saying just for you Judy) over drinks and nibblies on the balcony of the apartment.
(you can just get a glimpse of the beach through the pine trees LOL)
The apartment was right across the road (through the car park) from Dicky Beach. Beautiful white sand and delightful views of our wonderful coastline.
Here is my sister and her husband relaxing by the pool. Even though it was cloudy, it was still much warmer than Toowoomba. Yesterday here was back to winter again. Grrrr.
On the sewing front I am working busily on some Christmas gifts. Can’t show here as that would spoil the surprise!
I managed to make a few small things to sell at the quilt show. These pincushions were sold quickly and I thank Shirley for assisting in their production and also for eating the right camembert cheese. ??** VBG Thanks Shirley.
I will make some more for next year, so keep eating that camembert Shirley.
Currently in the evenings, I am working on squaring up all my crazy quilt blocks I did several years ago in preparation for finally putting them altogether into a quilt. Can’t rush these things!
