Catching up

Sunday we went for a walk on part of the Geelong Rail Trail, on the way we stopped at a winery and cafe called Basils, the view from the front of the cafe was amazing, you could see across Swan Bay

there was a huge vege garden

with loads of veges and fruit trees
The train Poziers passed us while we were walking

Adam and beth stepped out into the cold wind! We found quite a few geocaches

saw this galah having a snack
In the afternoon I gave Beth some crochet lessons
one chain circle


and the beginnings of who knows what!! One happy camper!! Beth has just learned knitting so has had to relearn holding the wool and hook, she is going really well.

The Supervisor, of course, 

lapped up all the available attention!!
Today was sit and sew at Barwon Heads, followed by grocery shopping and a visit to the library, then off to Queenscliff for some geocaching,

 and found my first mystery geocache, in a park I have been to many times before!! It was a beautiful day out.

Back home I have put the binding onto this quilt, it is ready for the hand sewing.
I had better head off and cook dinner before the hubby complains!!
Happy sewing.
