bits and pieces.....

Just had a quick weekend away at friends. 
I'm not a beach person but I love the views..........
Sitting on their back deck with a wine, pool views and a lovely breeze chatting with my friends I finished this Lucy block and started another one...............
we have a new poddy........he's pretty quiet..........going well on the bottle..........
some great sunsets lately........big sky land where I live.............
Another view from a look out while was pretty clear and we could see so far away..........
Tia Gorge.........very rugged country..........
and I found a gorgeous patchwork shop.......Stitched and Framed.......I needed a few more pinky reds to go into the quilt design I am planning.........these are the ones I had plus a few more I dug out of the stash and the new ones all together.......great shop she even cut fat 1/4's for me as I needed that size to cut the blocks.....I think I brought even more when she said that wasn't an issue and didn't have to do the minimum 1/2 metre cut to get what I needed.........I will be going back...........
I've got a extra long weekend as we have a holiday Tuesday for Australia Day and I took Monday as leave. Might try for a zoom sewing day Monday or Tuesday (my time)......anyone keen.........I'll let you know if I am definitely going ahead........plans are a bit vague here for the weekend......but I'm hoping to sew at some stage...........
Stay safe.........
Catch you later......


  1. I’m at work on Monday but Tuesday could work for me. I have a friend coming over to cut fabric together..

  2. Gorgeous photos!! I'm game, I'll be home both days and can join in for a bit from the other side of the world.

  3. Oh what a beautiful block. Love those colors! As for the view - wow! It shows true dedication to quilting to sew with all that beauty around you! Your new red stash is gorgeous.

  4. What gorgeous views no matter where you are! Love the ocean and the sunset, especially.
    Don't you love it when you find a new shop and it is a delightful find? I recognize some of the prints in your stack. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them. I should be able to join in on some of the zoom if you decide to go ahead with it.

  5. Prachtige foto's zo van jou land.
    Lees momenteel boeken die zich in Australië en Nieuw Zeeland af spelen.
    Prachtige stoffen en en mooi blok gemaakt.

    good that you got those extra French General - no stopping you now.

    The mystery fabrics? keep them separate for now in case - but if not discovered by the end of 2021 - return to stash.
