Been doing stuff......


I finally did the binding for this quilt .....


The top was given to me some time ago so I have no idea about the pattern, then I did all the quilting and binding - hard to see in this picture but swirls and feathers....


Good to have another quilt finish .....

Millicent the Magnificent Mum is my latest Angel Story block.....


and some more feathers were made at the ChooseDay girls sewing day....


I already had the pink ones done ..... they end up at about 18" x 9" so quite big really... 

... and I've done a dozen more of my circles.....  the blocks are only 4" finished so I will be going along with these for a while longer.....


Hubz and I spent the day out walking last weekend.  Cunninghams Gap is not too far from us and has some lovely hikes and forest areas

There are lovely big trees, I love how they have their own little gardens growing on them



... some quite thick forest to walk through


there had been some heavy winds the day before - the path was littered with leaves as a result...


part of our walk went through palm forest.... they are messy plants but so stately....


.. then moved over into bushland..... I just love the Australian tree grass....


It was a lovely sunny day - but not hot with it... just perfect for a walk


.. another tree growing its own garden....


lovely views in the gaps .....


great day out.... I enjoyed our burger and drink afterwards at a farm stay which runs a restaurant and cottages nearby 


We live in a lovely area which has places to visit which are easy day trips.... very lucky and this time of year the weather is just wonderful for it

Righto, Gotto Go.... work work time....

Cunningham’s Gap looks to be a fascinating place to visit. Your finished quilt turned out well. It looks like a tiled floor.

What a lovely place to hike and to be so close. I love the top quilt colors and your quilting is fantastic. Feathers have alluded me. I really like the pieced feathers too - but then I like so many things you do!
