Work In Progress Wednesday - Week 13

We have been over in Rottnest for the last 4 days for a little Easter break which was lovely. No computer, internet or sewing machine though! You just kind of get used to it and then its time to come home! Just have to share two favourite shots.... Its just so beautiful over there.



Did manage to do some hand sewing in the evenings though. Don't like sitting there watching telly with idle hands. This is for my best friends bub, Hugo. Based on a Hot Possum pattern. Not going to give it to him till Christmas, thought I'd get in early. I don't know if you can tell from the pict, the dark blue stars have a silver star print on them. Thought I'd try and get a silver DMC thread to blanket stitch around these to give it a little pizazze! And I have yet to put googley eye's on the ailen too!

I love your beach photos, reminds me of when we went along the Great Ocean Road a couple of years ago, we got some great action shots of Jordan on the beach.

I adore the rocket design for Hugo too, Jordan has had a thing for rockets and space things for ages now, which reminds me I need to fix a hole in his rocket softie I bought him last year!
