I subscribed to a challenge to create an A4 piece based on a movie and no guesses what I was given.  In the envelope were some very strange bits and bobs that had to be included in the work even though they had no relevance.

I then have been playing around with the  GO! baby I invested in (yes - I did) and the one set of patterns using felt and adding a little bit of fun to our local shopping bags and making a book cover.  This will all hopefully do well at our guilds next  Quilt Show and help with our fundraising.

This weekend !

We had a very welcome visitor to our pool on Friday ......

... and then yesterday while relaxing with family at our favourite club for Sunday lunch this huge container ship left the harbour.  You can get an idea of the size if you look at the pilot ship just visible between the two light poles on the north pier.

Not long after another ship entered the harbour, this one not nearly as big but capturing the catamaran and the sail boats gives you a taste of another beautiful day in Africa.
