Our weather is changing here, winter is slowly moving into spring. The change is ever so slight but you can feel it in the heat of the sun and at night you don't have to put socks on your feet. Today was a perfect example of that change and we went out and frolicked in it. We had a lovely long walk along the beach to have Breton crepes for lunch. It was a good thing that we walked to our destination as we got to see more of the beautiful day and our tummies were very full of yummy food that needed to be worked off.

I hope everybody else enjoyed their Sunday as much as we did.

A change of plans....................

This afternoon I was to meet up with a girlfriend and have a coffee in the winter sun but she had to cancel. Why you ask? Well it seems everybody on this island is sick as everybody I cross paths with has either been ill, has kids home from school or is coming down with something. She has the last two problems occuring in her house. So what to do with myself this afternoon. I decided to go in to the only supermache in centre ville that sells Australian magazines and check out what they had this week. I bought an over priced Donna Hay magazine. I haven't had one for quite some time and I have been literally drooling over some of the pictures in there. I have already marked a few recipes to try over the weekend. My husband is back tonight after being away a couple of weeks and will be ready for a nice homecooked meal I hope.
Oh I also picked up my red thread and crochet cotton for my quilt project square. Decisions are being mad, progress can take place.

Bon weekend to all!

My creative space........

I haven't been in my creative space for a few weeks now and it's good to be back. Today you see it's all about the calico. My piece for the quilt project..... a few dolls bodies......and a little zip purse. Not very much action but enough.

Visit Kirsty for all the other creative spacers.

It's Tuesday and I can't wait .................. show you what I had made and what I received for my birthday a week ago. A little late for show and tell but better than not getting to see them at all.

Firstly here is the fabulous bonbon covered chocolate cake &......

the new doll from Japan. She is a Pullip doll that I don't really know that much about but she is very beautiful and has the most fabulous dress I have ever seen on a doll. I need to do some research about these exquisite dolls but maybe there is somebody out there in blogland that can tell me a little more or send me in the right direction.

Check out other Tuesday goers here.

My return.......

morning walk artwork

Forgive me readers it has been 3 weeks since I have visited my blog and I am sooo sorry. I haven't been sitting around not doing anything in that time. I have been coping with illnesses.....having a birthday.......entertaining my mum( she left us yesterday to go back to cold old Melbourne)........and coping with a husband who has spent more time away recently than here. He has been bringing home some seriously good stuff from his travels and I will show you at some stage. In my break I was trying to keep up with what everybody else's has been upto but without great success.....I turned the computer on yesterday and looked at my google reader to see there was 500 posts to read. I am slowly working my way through all that goodness out there . I have also joined in with the quilt project which I am hoping to start on this afternoon. I know time is moving on and I do have a deadline for this one. I started this Monday with a walk and found that somebody had created a piece of art with red twine and baubles. This could well be my inspiration for my redwork. You can see by this photo that it is another beautiful day in paradise and I am going now to enjoy a bit more of it.

See you soon.
