Well after 5 days on an island with no internet access and no fabric shops, we have returned to civilization! It was a nice break away, although cold and wet, and the famous island bakery was closed for the whole time due to refurbishment... which was most likely a good thing for our waist lines! :) We spent a lot of time at the park and Grace and Daz also went fishing a few afternoons and Grace caught her very first fish, two actually! Two whitings, we ate them for tea that night, well we did, she refused to eat one of her "friends" :) She has a hot pink fishing line, very girly, but really, what other colour is a little girl to have? Milly chucked a tanty when she realized Grace has a fishing rod and she didn't. Looks like her Poppy will be buying her one for her birthday in November.
I did take Mum's old Elna sewing machine over and managed to sew together a dozen 9 patch blocks. But space was limited in the back room, I had to share the table with fish in a bucket! Ewwww! So I managed some sewing. I must say I am looking foward to Monday when everyone goes off to work/kindy/daycare leaving me alone!
