Backyard beach

Recently we visited relatives in Qld. Their backyard is the beach at Zilzie, just south of Yippoon.

I Took these photos on one of my many walks.

I've always loved looking at the designs crabs make on the beach.

The Sun bird hovering above the flower was taken in their garden.

We had a very relaxing holiday.

Stitches and Craft Show

Visited the stitches and craft show and caught up with some friends I hadn't seen for a while.

The Down Under Quilts calendar challenge was on display. My quilt "Colours of Australia - Simply Magic" is the September quilt.

I think I know what I'll be giving to family and friends for Christmas this year.

My Place

I've been checking out the new web site set up by Brenda Smith to showcase the MY PLACE quilt touring exhibition and I just love it. I keep going back for just another quick look. Check it out for yourself.

I was really excited to hear that my quilt "Blue Gum Creek" had been selected for inclusion in the exhibition. 30 quilts have been selected from each of the following countries Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The exhibition will tour for 2 years to the host countries and Europe.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of the quilts at the Australiasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne next February.
