Playing Catch-up!

 Life has been hectic, but we have moved and are 

happily enjoying rural life!

A "cut leaf" Banksia in my garden

So there has been little sewing but lots to celebrate!

My sewing room is waiting for me.

It is much smaller than I'm used to but I'm okay with 


My AFL (Australian rules) football team won the Grand 


The tulips are blooming in Bendigo...

Today I intend to play with these doily and fabric scraps.

There is a destash market coming up and I thought someone might be interested in a drawstring bag, or two!

Happy days!

A Turret Obsession!

I will be moving soon...

From bayside to rural!

No, this is not our house.... 

Not our house.

or this!

One thing that I noticed when we moved 'bayside' 

was how the architecture was so different 

from what I had been used to.....

               Can you tell what caught my eye? 


A modern take on a turret!

Turrets seemed to adorn many of the houses 

in the neighbourhood.

A turret, according to the online Oxford dictionary is

 "a small tower on top of a larger tower or at the corner of a building or wall, typically of a castle."

Well, there are no castles, but some are pretty 


I became a bit obsessed with finding just one more....

sometimes going for a detour on my way home from 


 in the hope of finding another!

Some were hard to see and photograph....

hidden high behind fences and vegetation.

And others humbly sit atop modest 

homes, for all to admire!

Trust me, these are all different!

I think I will miss these....

I wonder if there are any more out there I didn't find?

Oh, this is our new house.......

We move in this week!

Happy days
