In Flight

While my husband was filleting the fish we caught last Wednesday I spent time photographing the seagulls hanging around the back of our boat waiting for tidbits. Soon after taking this shot I dropped the camera and thought I had broken it. However it appears to be working again now. We had a great day catching enough fish for two meals for us and one for our daughters family. Dennis is out again today with a mate. We are having the most glorious start to summer after an exceptionally wet end to winter and start of spring however it now appears that we are heading into a drought this summer. Our pool is nearly ready for swimming and I think it will be in great demand this summer. Some years we are not in it till after Christmas so it will be a bonus to use it more this summer.

Mellow Yellow Monday

Kowhai trees in bloom at Kawakawa Bay


This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
