Sunny Saturday

What a beautiful day it has been here at home ....  a visit to the beach with eldest son Sam for a final surf at our home beach before he heads off to New York to live for 2 years .... here is David and Sam looking for that elusive wave ....

Got one ... albeit a little small ...

The dogs swam out to meet Sam ....

Chasing balls along the beach ....

I finished off this Arabian Nights canvas work piece for Lynne's birthday present during this week .... and then I inserted it into the lid of a Sudberry House Jewellery Box which I ordered from the UK ... I'm happy with the result and I think Lynne was too !!  Happy Birthday my friend! 

I had ordered lots of these boxes from the UK for the Needlework Cruise and this is my Australian Wildflower Embroidery in the lid of another jewellery box ... which is now on my dresser with my jewellery inside it !   Something for me finally !! 


  1. That Arabian stitchery is wow.. Love the colours, gold thread and beads.. Mmm I'm your new friend lol plenty of time till November!
