came back from Canada yesterday evening, the wedding was beautiful , the weather not. Not that it matter to the happy couple. our Daughter-in-law and son made a handsome couple.will share some photos later on.
Will also show you my beautiful, Mug Hug from Terry.
I have not done any sewing whatsoever, did manage to go a quilt shop in Detroit, it was a little disappointing, not many gadgets there and not very friendly people. I still did manage to buy a few things.Lets hope that I can do some sewing in the few days i will be home I am off again on Thursday.
our baggage did not arrive with us so my few quilting related items are not here yet, to be honest I don't remember what I bought lol.What I do remember is that I have lots of magazines, so I am looking forward to look through them.
i have been downloading the lovely design from "among the gum trees" can't wait to do them.

The weather is a little cooler and the sea is nice , no swimming for me for 2 days Dr's orders, I have a few stitches on my earlobe.
I am so angry at myself, I just thought that posting from here will be like posting from home maybe a couple more days that would be all "How wrong was I" 3 weeks my friend tells me longer if register post!!!! that will teach me not to assumed things in future ( if I can remember lol)I am so glad that my Hug swap Terry has been so understanding about this, I will not be home until the 10 of October, so I will not see my "swap" until them, I am looking forward to it.
Must go have some friends coming for dinner tonight so I have to go into the kitchen my favorite place after the sewing room.
Hope that you are all having a great day.

The weather is not bad, definitely not for swimming the sea looks grey and furious.
I have been having a horrid time with a site that pop's up every time I try to do anything in my computer is very frustrating.
I have finally work out that I can "visit" the girls that have become my followers.
I am not computer savi, just trial and error with me.so I will be doing that today looking on their blogs.and leaving comments of course.

This is what I have been doing today, I have join a SAL "Flowers from My Garden", this are the practise pieces,something new for me I never practise any thing. head first and then.... that is another story.
Esto es lo que he hecho hoy, son los ejercicios previos para este SAL. se los enviare a Isi para que me de su opinion, si ella supiera que esta es la primera vez que recuerdo haber practicado algo, soy de las que hacen cosas sin practicar y luego pago por mis errores, quien sabe a lo mejor ella consigue cambiarme (VG)
Griselda esta celebrando sus 10.000 visitas, con un sorteo, hay fecha hasta el 30 de Septiembre para visitar su blog y participar.

What a day, is started not so well, broke the bobbin winder on my little sewing machine, so no machine sewing for me,is so frustrating, in here I have very few of my sewing's things,town is over an hr away, not that you find anything to do with quilting there, so you really have to use your imagination (what???).
Any way decided to play with some lovely linen band I bought the other day and this is what I came up with, a scissor holder and a little needle keeper.
The last couple of days have been colder, the sea is not so nice , no swimming, one can tell that summer is over,is pretty lonely here,still so nice a quiet,one more month of this for me,really enjoying it specially after the busy time with the girls!.
Hoy mi dia no comenzo ni continuo, como yo lo habia planeado, pensaba coser una bolsa , pero rompi mi maquinita, asi que no costura a maquina para mi.la verda es que aqui tengo muy poca de mis cosas para coser,asi que tengo que inventar he utilizar lo poco y nada que encuentro.la ciudda me queda a un poquito mas de una hr y a "Quilt Shop" es algo que no saben que existe (lol).
Bueno podria ser peor, tengo el mar a dos pasos, es un lugar hermoso y tranquilo super relajador y yo aun tengo un mes mas de esto.
Asi que me decide a jugar con una cinta??? de lino que compre el otro dia y esto es lo que hize , un sobrecito para las tijeras y un librito para las agujas.

I asked and I am allow to swim.Not much sewing is been done just a stitch or two.
Acabo de tomar esta foto desde la terraza de mi dormitorio, el mar esta hermoso .Ire a nadar antes de desayuno
hace dias que no he nadado, porque no me he sentido bien, asi que ayer finalmente me decidi y fui al medico, tengo una infecion a la laringe, antibioticos por una semana, menos mal que dijo que si puedo andar.
He cosido muy poquito, pero hoy ya empezare de nuevo.
This is my first applique, quilting adventure, While living in Holland, I join the AWG and did this blocks, they were such fun to do,I remember been so afraid of the "rotary cutter" and so grateful that some one else cut the background fabric for me.

Some fabrics,there is not Quilting shops in here so all one can do is look for nice pure cotton fabrics, they do make up for the lack of fabrics with beautiful threads, silks, beads and the buttons!! fell in love with some mother of pearl ones, the only problem was that I did have to buy them all, (VG) I will have to find something to do with them, any suggestion will be most welcome.
Se acabaron las vacaciones para mi hija y nietas, regresaron ayer a Inglaterra,a mi aun me quedan 6 semanas aqui.
