Weekends away as the spring kicks off

There wasn't a lot of sewing this weekend. 

I headed up north to catch up with my sister, her partner and a little girl in their care who is very sweet.

Can you find a better way to spend a Friday afternoon?  Not me in the pic, but seriously, I was wishing it was.  :)))  Casually floating about.  Not a care in the world.

Looking back towards the hinterland at the back of Coffs Harbour from Sawtell.
This is the river that runs through Bellingen.  The one that floods when the rain comes.  But this weekend the kids where swimming and jumping in the deep parts off the bridge.  The water crystal clear.

The Saturday craft market in Bellingen with the locals.  And a new op shop in town. Bizarrely the place to be. 

So as you can see I didn't get a lot of sewing done. However I did have a relaxing couple of days.

Oh & I did get to go through soem of my sisters patchwork books/magazines looking for something new to get into. 
And I would like to say I've got it.  But it's a surprise.  So you will all have to wait till it is seriously under way for a sneak peek... 

Happy week all.

Sunny Stitchy Sundays

 I have this little stash of fabrics that I nicked off someone.  LOL & and yes they know that I nicked off with them, maybe, perhaps they have forgotten.  Which is always possible.  Anywho I was too'ing & fro'ing as to what to do with them this morning.  Nothing was jumping to mind. 

They are a bit boring. . . so they are tucked back where I found them.   Until something springs to mind.  I was thinking something really modern since they aren't.
The quilt along...  it is taking some motivation to keep onto of late.....  :))  I figure I will just do a couple every now and then.  Fingers crossed I get to finish it some time soon..  

But I was a little stuck on what to do?  Do I start another quilt?

Finish something that has been hanging around for a little while?

I have been a little on the sick side of things, so my motivation is a little slow this weekend.

The spider pattern block from a couple of weeks ago, popped into a cushion.

I have so much of this hydrangea range in the cupboard it is a bit on the ridiculous side.  What can I say.  I love it..  Oh and I do have different colour ways too.  So I wasn't short on a piece to do the back.

Happy week all..
