A new year

Happy New Year everyone, hope it's everything you want it to be.
Back to reality for me after a fantastic break. Hope everyone enjoyed a great Christmas holiday season too. Just a couple of pics taken on our afternoon walk...too hot during the day, this is about 4.30 -5 pm and it was still warm yet pleasant. Decided to take the steps down to the beach, great going down but the legs start to quiver on the way back up:)

The life guard hut looking up towards Fraser Island.
This beautiful sea turtle popped up while the boys were out in the dinghy....very special !!

Does anyone recognise this? It is a very pretty sea anenome type thing that was near a crab pot. Probably deadly? didn't touch of course.

I managed to finish the "Dotty' quilt...really happy with it.

We were able to have it road tested while away and it passed with flying colours - this is Olivier meeting Dotty.

Pretty exciting stuff!!

Dotty's legs were a hit ...and yes, they went straight in his mouth!!

Would you believe this was in a fern just outside mum's back door. After a frantic phone call, we ( not me actually) managed to keep watch until it moved off. It was a very big carpet snake, pretty harmless I know but it gave me the creeps...really don't like snakes, sorry about that. I am definitely not a country girl and this was in the thick of suburbia/city.

It was an all creatures great and small kind of holiday...lots of fun and mostly relaxing.
Looking forward to showing you some new designs.
Take care,
ps. Homespun January issue has my new doll contribution.
