We spent a few hours out on the water fishing and enjoying the time out!

Earlier in the week I did manage to finish crocheting that baby blanket I told you about last post. It's a design I made up and will share here later in the year. I'm really happy with the design and although it took a few different goes before I found a binding I was happy with, I think it's come up well.
This morning it was market day ...... this time the bus "Seriously Crazy" from Charters Towers was back again ...... I just couldn't resist .......... I think these will end up making a nice table runner. The Bee theme is based on what was my little sewing cabins name "The Beehive" which you might remember (until it all had to be packed up ....... mostly into boxes now in Qld and a few remains kept out and moved back inside to one of the bedrooms. I've always had a bit of a thing for bees, but not gotten into collections or bee keeping as such ......... I do enjoy watching various bits of nature, which is why I try to have lots of flowers and shrubbery together with watering "holes" to keep the good insects happy and have the little birds visiting.
Did I mention I finally found some material I was happy with to be the background for the signature hexie tablecloth?? Well I decided this fabric with little hexie shapes would work. I've kind of attached the hexies to it ...... but I have a bit of quilting work to do on it ....... and might also add some other bits to it before it gets its binding
I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and your week goes well.
