A weekend away.....

I had a fun visitor last week.... who took over my design board......

... do you recognise that gorgeous smile????/  yes it's Chookyblue....

We had a day of stitching and an evening of stitching - but I forgot to take more pictures!  silly me....

I worked on my Japanese blocks... there are 6 completed ones now.... (3 more to go)

On Saturday morning I met up with my daughter and widget (Hubz had a work thing on this weekend) and we went to my most favourite place...... 

The beach.......

Here is widget on our first walk along the Esplanade at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast....

Saturday night was Eat Street Markets (Miami Markets)

.... where we shared a mixture of Asian and Turkish.....

... and a splash of something nice.....

On Sunday I spent some time chatting to one of the locals....

... whilst doing some stitching.... that's DD and widget on the paddleboard in the background....

Evening walk at the end of the weekend......

I managed to finish one tag for the No Fuss Stitch-a-long.... isn't it the perfect one....

Righto, Gotto Go.... back home there is laundry to be done, quilt jobs to be done and maybe a bit of stitching to be done.....

    A beautiful time away at the beach with Widget and your DD.
    Yep perfect tag to stitch.

  13. Your photos could have been taken right here in Key West! Don't you just love the warm weather and gorgeous water? And let's not forget the all important adult beverages :) Looks like you had fun with both family and friends this week!

  14. Love chooky’s churn dash blocks, if they went up on my design wall I might not have let them get down!
    Great work on your blocks and the thread in your stitchery is so pretty.. is it a cottage garden thread?
    A lovely getaway with your daughter and master widget.
