Last day of the School Holidays.

Yesterday was the last day of the school holidays. Daz had to go into work for a few hours so I had a decent burst at the sewing machine and got this runner finished. Got the top finished and the backing! Used some grey scraps. Looking good!

Then I managed to sandwich it and start quilting. I'm doing another giant spiral. Above is how much I do before I take off the free motion darning foot and pop the walking foot on.

Later in the afternoon we took the boat out for one last school holiday swim up at Elephant Rock. The water was so still, it was like glass.

The initial jump in was icey but within ten seconds it was lovely.

And then we watched the sun set and wondered why we would want to live anywhere else in the world? A perfect end to the holidays.

Your home looks so beautiful. Makes me think I would like to live there.

Wow. Gorgeous. Both the runner and the lake. I'm a little jealous.

Both the runner and the swimming spot look fabulous.
