Day trip to Moonta

Today my DH and I drove to Moonta. It is a 2 hour trip in the car and it is where I grew up. My mother, sister and her family still live there. My mother is elderly and is in the hospital at the moment. These photos are of Moonta Bay, it is a lovely place. My father was a professional fisherman because of this I spent a lot of time at the beach. These photos are taken from the cliffs that look out over the bay. My mothers house is very close to these cliffs. This afternoon was quite overcast and really cold with the wind blowing in from the sea.

I did manage to pop into the quilt shop. Ali who owns the shop has an amazing amount of patterns. I had seen a table runner made from this book a few months ago and had really loved it(another thing to add to the list of things to make). You can see the table runner on the front cover it has a basket shape at both ends with flowers in the middle.

Hi, Just found your blog via Leanne's House. Your sewing is beautiful - you should be very pleased with your efforts both with the blog and also your stitching. Keep up the good work. I am new to blogging too, I think it may be addictive - I know reading them is!!!

Hello Leanne, thanks for stopping by my blog. I see you are a very creative soul yourself with all your lovely stitchery and sewing.So nice to see a piece of your part of the country...I am a little jealous that your dad was a fisherman - an endless supply of beautiful fresh, free fish...yum!
Happy sewing and blogging,
