No sewing for a couple of weeks we are doing some renovations, getting a new kitchen and may be I  get a new sewing room too. Lots of unpacking cupboards and storing things for a few weeks. 
This was my sewing space 
Like my temporary desk leg  ha ha !
Another reason for not even hand sewing squashed in the moving ...Ouch !!

Josh's Birthday.

We spent the weekend in Bundaberg celebrating Josh's birthday and spending time with them all. The grandchildren are growing so fast. Josh is the best Barbecue cook. He cooked up a feast for his own birthday celebration. He loves to barbecue.  His mum in law Gail made him a beautiful cake of course a Barbecue cake what else. She is so clever. We had brisket, pork ribs, beef ribs and pork belly. We had salads too of course. It was so delicious. I'm so lucky both the men in may family are excellent cooks.

Being creative with Dijanne Cevaal's Prints.

Time for some creative stitching. I bought this at the Sydney Quilt and Craft show last year. I did a workshop with this lady she was very nice. She made a lino print and then embroidered it.

I am loving this now because there is no plan and no rules , just add a bit of creativity.
My stitching looks a bit primitive and not the neatest here but it is what it is. I think  I will make it into a table center for my coffee table. I just love these earthy colours.
