Lest we forget

Lovely to see Brett at home and with his wife and boys for Anzac Day. 

The Grandies were very proud to march with their Cub Scout group. It was Kai's turn to wear their great grandad's medals. My Dad would have been so proud of them.

Ship is in again - and that's my boy!!!

After an extended time sailing around north of Australia, the ship is home. Welcome home Dunx. Can't wait to see you when you are able to come to Queensland. 

 Two boys were excited to see their Dad.

Catching up

February's project for Sewing Club at Sew This and That
Inside has mesh pockets. 

It goes well with my all time favourite bag,  the Preston Bag, a design by Dawn Hay for our 2014 Lets Get Stitched retreat.

My new drink bottle bag

Our sewing club project at Sew This and That yesterday was a wine bottle bag. I changed mine to hold a water bottle. 
The back has embroidery stitches which don't show well on the photo. The bag is lined with insulshine to keep the contents cool. Instead of a straight bag with handle I put a drawstring. 

Those folded diamonds were a bit tricky to sew in. But we all got there eventually.
