About Me

My Photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

Day 3

Something a little different today our friends son was cart racing at Strathalbyn so we drove over for a few hours. We saw him race twice and he got a first and a second. It is a noisy sport and as the cart go by they flick up mud so not a place to go in your Sunday finery. Jays older brother is in England driving Formula Fords at the moment, it would be nice to think I could one day say I know a formula 1 driver.
I have just realized these photos are in reverse order.

Day 2

Today saw me up early for a walk along the beach it was cold and winding without much sun.
I wish I could add sound to these photos as it is an amazing roar....... Then it would be a video wouldn't it LOL.
We had a lovely Greek meal and I have even got some stitching done.
Life is good.

There is not much beach with all the swell however I did manage to walk from our beach house to the rocks along the beach with out getting wet.

It was cold and it amazes me that these boys sit out in the water waiting for a wave, I am sure my toes would snap off.

Day 1

We have had a nice day some walking and eating and sewing. All of these photos have been taken around Port Elliot. I am loving Izzie(the iPad) however doing a post on her is time consuming so lots of snaps and few words.

Time away

Tony, Gemma and I are down at Port Elliot for a few days I am looking forward to doing not a lot, a bit of stitching and playing with Clarice.
It is a full moon at the moment and as I sit here watching a program on Polar Bears the waves are crashing in on the beach below.
See you tomorrow with some more photos.

Bad blogger and a quilt for shayla

Can someone please tell me how we are in June already.

This is a very ordinary photo of this quilt it really doesn't do it justice. That is what you get for leaving it to the men in the house. The weather had been bad all week and I had to go to work and Lucas had to take it to give to Shayla, so I left it in the boys hands.
Shayla is one of Lucas' close friends he has suffered from ulcerative colitis over the last 4 years to the point that he has had surgery removing the effected part of his bowel and he now has a colostomy hopefully for a few months at least. The boys gave me some money and I put in the rest. This quilt suits Shayla so much I loved making it.
The boys took it into hospital to him last Saturday.

I must admit none of the photos are great I have been very time poor at the moment, and the weather hasn't been great.

I think everybody knows Cat in the Hat.
I loved how it turned out.

Every quilt must have a label.
Lucas assures me I don't want to know what T-Rex means!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every quilt needs a label

I also made some bunting for Sean's cousins little boy Francis and at the moment it is winging its way to Spain with Sean. We saw Sean off at the airport this morning on a 5 week surfing holiday in Spain and Portugal.
