Australia Day Weekend

What a great long weekend it's been.  Bundalong has been a popular spot for all the boating - fishing and water skiing all celebrating Australia Day here on the Murray River!  It was so very busy, that hubbie and I decided we would take the fishing boat and kayak to Lake Moodemere, not far up the road and a much quieter spot.  Pete went fishing and Scruffy and I went for a paddle in the kayak, which Hubbie bought me for Christmas this year.  Scruffy was very good, and settled down in front of me!  Unfortunately I couldn't get any photos as I left the camera in the car!!

Sewing has been on the agenda this weekend..... attending to some swaps that are coming up and using the FNSI......  I'm attempting to model the apron I'm almost finished...... just have to do the initial bit, unfortunately the pic didn't come out very clear 

starting on some Christmas sewing (yes, one xmas item a month) - check out the sidebar
a little pot holder, plus I managed to pull out some kits I've had packed away.......

Secret sewing for my swap partner for the Initial Heart Swap being run over at Gone Stitching
a little clearer, but now you have to stand on your head!!

Crochet for the dishcloth swap over at The 7 Pillars Home

And along with a lot of other bloggers from all over the world, we have been blog hopping with the Grow Your Blog Party hosted by Vicki at 2 bags full!  What a fun time its been!!

Very nice apron! I like the gathering at the bottom. I'm amazed to read about your warm-weather activities b/c we're in the middle a unusual cold and upcoming sleet/ice tomorrow - brr! It's nice to know somebody is outside in some warm weather somewhere!

Lovely apron and projects. It looks like a great way to stay cool on the kayak :-)

Your apron looks lovely Sharm. I started this year's Christmas sewing a few days before Christmas last year! Never too early for Christmas sewing!
