We decided to go for a walk on North Avoca beach. There were quite a few people on the beach, walking, reading and just enjoying the sunshine, but the surf was vicious so not many people foolhardy enough to venture out.
Looking towards Avoca
We decided that the waves were getting up around 4 meters. Besides that, there was a sand bar a little way out, the waves were dumping on that, and there were strong currents going every which way in front of the sand bar.
Before going out, I made my Road to Oklahoma blocks for the Rainbow Challenge. You guessed it - the colour for this month is purple.
I am way behind with the RSC blocks as these are the first I have made this month, so hopefully I'll get a few more done over the week end.
I am linking up at the RSC Challenge page and you will find it here - why not go over and check out all the great things the others have made.
And here are a few more photos from the quilt show last week end. There were a few quilts with spectacular applique work. Like this one:
And the detail on the pansies (since the colour of the month is purple!)
Lovely hand quilting on that quilt too.
These next two photos were from a quilt which I forgot to photograph in full. Blame that on a Senior's Moment. LOL. The quilter had used a folded fabric technique to make 3-D flowers which I thought was stunning.
We came home yesterday afternoon to find heaps of blood in Tibby's stool. So a frantic dash to the Vet before he closed, since today is Good Friday, and I have been shovelling medication into her today. Poor little soul. She does not take kindly to that, and I have several gashes to prove that she is displeased. The vet wasn't concerned - said that it was just an inflamed bowel and that it would heal eventually. Thank goodness.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching
