I'm away in Hobart, Tasmania looking after one of my favourite dogs and his home, while his mum and dad are away on holidays ! I have been here before and have posted lots of pics of the beautiful scene which is the back garden and vista, but here's another
this was late the other day, sun setting and beautiful colours, so soft and gentle, looking down the derwent river
i don't have my usual computer here and so i can't play with the pics the way i usually do, it's a bit hit and miss here, so bear with me
here is Roly on the swing seat, more interested in the scene than the camera
we were visiting my cousin, making himself right at home !
i have brought lots of stitching to do, and have been doing lots, will take some photos and let you have a look next time, i have lots on the go !
the etsy shop is still open, the elves at home are busy keeping things on track, maybe you want a new pattern for a new start
how about 'marrakesh' by Christine Vlasic, its a great pattern to be done in many ways, choose you fabric selection and make this beautiful quilt
or one of the other patterns from the shop !
my friend the magpie, at home, was making lots of visits to this poor hanging basket, the only good thing left about it was the fibre from the basket lining which would now be making a comfy warm nest for the new maggies being hatched
i had a small gathering of friends at home just before i came away, they had all been to France and Nante in particular when Margaret Sampson George and Brigitte Giblin were of the exhibition and it was a show and tell of some of their shopping done in and around Paris and from the show. what a lovely day it was and some of those girls Sharon and Melissa had been very busy shoppers ! the above is some beautiful embroidered silk fabric
here another piece with a beautiful bird
and this bag was bought from a market, very old very beautiful !
those girls certainly found some lovely bits and pieces and did well !
it's time to go and pick up my furry boy, back soon !
