Nana duties.....

Some things going in the post.....

Cathy's parcel for the Secret Santa Swap...... late for August but early for September....
and including an 'open today' little thing....


I had a couple of swap comittments for August..... my chook fairy light came to inspect....

this is a Fathers Day mini quilt going to the person written on the label ....


and this is my Once A Season Swap for Spring ... this one is going to a different person as you can see by the label ....



I am off to Tropical North Queensland for 10 days.... I HAVE to help with Nana duties.... tough gig...

I'll be playing with Jack

Photo: Look who I have spent the day with. Oh Fiona isn't he so cute and I'm not even biased. Hope there's a chance we may see each other. Michael is a wonderful father. You deserve to be proud of him.


I will be taking a bloggy break - not sure about connection etc there but if possible I will show you some photographs of extensive beaches and warm ocean waves and beautiful forests.....

of course I will take some stitching to do - incase I have time!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

There is a bit of bushland above our house.... this time of year it is a cheerful sight....



The wattles are just lovely.... look at these little balls of yellow fluff


(I don't even care that they give me the sneezes) 

The lavender is looking wonderful too.... lots of bees in there


Righto, Gotto Go.... must find those shorts and sleeveless tops to pack.....  see ya in a couple of weeks
