I have been quilting - you will be amazed how much I have done, however I am one boy down to help with photographing the quilts and the Hairiest Sweetie is NOT the best helper as he talks back. The younger Sweeties are very well trained as they have been helping me for years and know EXACTLY how I need the quilts presented. The Hairiest one is most argumentative. Just can't get good help these days. Consequently I took these photos with no help and they are okay, at least there is something to help me remember what did.

Due to many things this winter, we have not gone walking as we normally do. However this Sunday past the usual suspects went of to Boyagin Rock, a fantastic granite rock ~40kms north east of here off the York Williams Rd. Took our lunch and a cake to share and what a wonderful day we had, clambering all over this marvellous huge rock. Lovely weather not too hot and a little cold. There were tadpoles in the pools at the top of the rock, my word that's a long way to hop.And no hat all day.

A voice from the ether - I'm still here, although I have not had any time to sit at the computer to even surf the blogs that I like to read, let alone keep updating mine. I have been madly quilting and working and driving and cooking and cleaning - you know all the stuff we have to do - and thoroughly enjoying it all, just a bit strapped for time to sit at the computer and look gorgeous, I just have to run around and do that. Ha!
The July school holidays have been and hooned by. The younger gorgeous ones and I spent several days up the coast a bit ~700kms away and had a great time. Even managed to hook up with Blogless Kathy and her family, TWICE, as at that time we were only ~60kms apart instead of the usual 200kms.

This is of Port Gregory one of the places that we stayed on our holiday. Lovely spot.
Felt a bit like Superman in Port Gregory as one of the two places where the mobile 'phone would work was in the 'phone box. People sure gave me some weird looks as they drove past and saw me talking on my mobile in the 'phone box.
