home from byron

Home from my beach break & back to business feeling much refreshed .
Swam in the blue , blue waters & walked the hill to the lighthouse each morning .
We saw whales as they plopped their way south & a pod of dolphins playing around .
We were startled by a wallaby as it hurtled through the forest .
There was also plenty of time to fit in some sewing & I was able to work on a few things .




The beginnings of the Kaffe Fassett "Rosy Romantic Quilt " from the Quilt Road book .
& some thank you gifts to be sent to my sister-in-law in California.




And a tote for Jan my pressing assistant from the Rouenneries fat quarter collection .



Waiting at home was some sweet Christmas fabric from the very clever Aneela .
Thanks so much .





I love it & will be spending many hours gazing at it & planning before I go anywhere near it with the rotary cutter !!








Yesterday , our last day at Byron was a sunny ,sparkling day & it was not easy leaving this !!
If you look very hard you might be able to see the whale in this picture , I just caught the last of him before he dissapeared into the blue.
